Interview: Kim Jong-Un. / by Steve Russell


In case you've somehow missed it, North Korea have threatened "merciless" retaliation if the good ol' US of A releases upcoming James Franco/Seth Rogen comedy: The Interview. 

The movie, focused on two journalists who are tasked by their government to assassinate North Korean President and Overlord, Kim Jong-Un, has sparked quite a reaction from the North Korean government, as they declared the movie as "an act of war" and a "wanton act of terror". Rogen was also labelled as a "gangster filmmaker", whatever that really means. 

The North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson 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.""

I guess Team America: World Police never made it over to North Korea. 

So what do you think? Is North Korea justified in being just a teeny bit upset, or are they over reacting with the threat of war? Shout out, as always, below and let us know what you think of The Interview's trailer!
