Sony Hack: Theater Chain Pulls Team America
A Texas theater chain's plan to run Team America: World Police instead of The Interview, has been quashed by Paramount Pictures, according to the chain. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema had said that it would run the 2004 puppet comedy film created by South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone, instead of the Interview, after hackers crippled Sony and threatened a 9-11 style attack on theater goers if the film went to market. Alamo cited "circumstances beyond our control" for the cancellation. Team America: World Police features late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.
