North Korea Will Treat the Release of ‘The Interview’ as an Act of War

Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview, a comedy about assassinating Kim Jong-Un, is getting the best publicity it could have ever hoped for. The North Korean government has denounced the film and called it a “wanton act of terror.”

In a statement from North Korea’s KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman labeled the film as the work of “gangster moviemakers” and called for its ban. The spokesman added, “The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable.” 

The statement called for the US government to ban the film from being screened and promised that if they didn’t comply, it would trigger a “resolute and merciless response.” I imagine that means Kim Jong-Un will start stomping around his room kicking all his stuffed animals in a huff.

Honestly though. There’s no way the US takes this threat seriously. Mostly because the Pentagon has already briefed the president on what would happen if we went to war with North Korea, ie, they just showed him a clip of a cartoon missile launching into the air and falling back down onto North Korea.
