Sony Entertainment are still suffering from the repercussions of the leaked movies, informative documents, scandalous emails, and reveals of upcoming script drafts – all of which lead to extreme assumptions that the hacking was a result of North Korea scolding the upcoming comedy film ‘The Interview’ featuring James Franco and Seth Rogen, centralising around an attempted assassination of North Korea leader Kim Jong-un. Despite North Korea denying any involvement with the disastrous hacks towards Sony, it isn’t difficult to understand why people presumed so, especially considering that a North Korean spokesmen described the film as an ‘act of terrorism’ and with the leaked deleted scene which visualised Kim Jong-un’s death in a degrading manner was released earlier today.
Whatever the case is, there seems to be the notion that the reasoning behind these hacks were indeed due to ‘The Interview’. Now, there’s a bold threat allegedly targeting those who watch ‘The Interview’ and references the consequences to 9/11.
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.”
The threat was posted alongside a new set of leaked emails, which validates the source as being the same people behind the actual Sony attack, and with it not being an impersonator. ‘The Guardians of Peace’ who’ve already claimed responsibly for being behind the Sony attacks would of course be making a courageous move from just cyber-terrorism to a full blown implied bombing attack. These are all hypothetical at the moment, with there being no conclusive proof that the attackers would willingly cause chaos to the premiere of the film and various other cinema screenings, however of course security officials are beginning to heed the warning just incase the threat follows through.
‘The Interview’ debuts during Christmas Day (December 25th 2014) in the US, so if there is any authenticity and legitimate truths to the threat, we will discover so then.
