So apparently Kim Jong Un has a big humbug up his bum after learning about the upcoming film "The Interview" where James Franco and Seth Rogen play characters who want to interview Kim Jong Un for their show, but are then hired by the CIA to assassinate the chubby dictator

Kim Jong Uns representatives didn't find it very funny and threatened it as an act of war.

Personally, I don't think Un is going to do much other than make threats, but what do you all think?


Also, now that the release date is near, hacking threats to Sony have cancelled release dates (probably by NK)

Of course he's fucking pissed.

As soon as I saw that trailer I said "Welp, this is a terrible fucking idea".

They're making a movie about assassinating a currently unstable countries dictator. Yeah. That's going to be an issue.

I would be angry also. He may be a dictator, but I am pretty sure no one would like to have a movie about someone trying to kill them.

Yeah, bad decision to make this movie. Imagine how quickly this project would've been shut down if it had suggested assassinating certain other actual current world leaders. . .First Amendment rights only stretch so far, not to include starting a nuclear war just because you want to tell a joke.

I'm really not surprised that there's a kerfuffle over this, but an act of war? Pfft. I bet he'd like that.

When I first heard of this I thought it was the worst idea over. I still believe that, although i'll still go and see the movie.

It's probably an excuse to get concessions since North Korea is having a severe drought on on top of all their other problems, and this movie a convent excuse for more saber rattling. I don't think he should be allowed a hecklers veto in addition to whatever else he's trying to get, but If he is dumb enough to start a war he will have a lot more than a movie to worry about.

An Act of war he says. The nerve of this guy when he has the gall to say the term "Comfort woman". Just shut up and deal with it. It's not like people actually like him right. Right?

Didn't North Korea make a video of the White House getting bombed last year?

They did and the footage was from Call of Duty, I believe.

I'm still going to see The Interview, looks pretty funny.
