Judd Apatow is tweeting mad over a decision by several North American theater chains to pull Sony’s “The Interview” in wake of terrorist threats.
A frequent collaborator of “Interview” star Seth Rogen, Apatow finds it “disgraceful” that film won’t be shown across the country, wondering “will they pull any movie that gets an anonymous threat now?”
The “This Is 40” director isn’t convinced a group believed to be representing North Korea is behind Tuesday’s threat for an attack reminiscent of September 11.
I think it is disgraceful that these theaters are not showing The Interview. Will they pull any movie that gets an anonymous threat now?
We also don’t know that it isn’t a disgruntled employee or a hacker. Do we think North Korea has troops on the ground in the US? Ridiculous
Regal, AMC and Cinemark are among chains that have pulled the comedy, costarring James Franco, from its scheduled Dec. 25 release date. Carmike dropped the movie on Tuesday night and Canada’s largest theater chain, Cineplex, has also pulled the film and removed showtime information previously listed on their website.
In addition to those major chains, Landmark has canceled its scheduled New York premiere of the film on Thursday.
