North Korean Government is Freaking Out about a Movie

by Rachel Baker on June 25, 2014

So, apparently, if you are a reclusive country, you don’t actually understand the difference between an actual act of war (which, while maybe poetic, doesn’t have a whole lot of artistic license) and a freakin’ movie (while may not be poetic does have with artistic license). I’m betting if there was an actual act of war by the US against North Korea, there’d be more than just demands to ban a movie in our country.

If the country is so concerned about the movie and how the North Korean’s will view it, maybe the government over there should ban it from THEIR country.

Better yet, maybe we can send someone from the State Department and Dennis Rodman over there and we can have a multinational viewing party where everyone an laught together at the stupidity of Seth Rogen and James Franco.

…and then maybe said State Department lacky and Rodman can work out a deal to bring home the three American prisoners who are rotting over there under Kim Jung Un’s authority. …just sayin’.

Pyongyang on Wednesday condemned an upcoming Hollywood film starring actors James Franco and Seth Rogen — who play characters caught up in a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — as an “act of war.”

The reclusive communist country has vowed to unleash a “merciless countermeasure” if the U.S. government fails to ban the movie’s release.

“The Interview,” which debuts in theaters in October, depicts Franco as a talk show host and Rogen as his producer. After the two land a rare interview with the Korean leader, the CIA recruits them to carry out his assassination.

“Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated,” North Korea’s official KCNA news agency quoted a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry as saying.

“If the U.S. administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless countermeasure will be taken,” the unnamed spokesman added.
