Kim Jong Un Threatens War Over New Seth Rogen Film The Interview


In a move that will make the dictator appear even crazier, Kim Jong Un has threatened violent retribution if Seth Rogen and James Franco’s latest film, The Interview, is released.

A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman has stated that the film is an act of terrorism and that a “merciless counter-measure” would be enacted if the American government doesn’t ban it.

The Interview is scheduled for release in October 9 through Sony…unless the US bows to North Korea’s ridiculous demands of course.
