Paramount Cancels ‘Team America’ Showings, Theaters Say

Deadline: Forget those plans by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and other theaters to run Team America: World Police in place of The Interview.

Now everyone is scared of N.Korea. Meanwhile movies will be made about various terrorist organizations: Al Qadea, ISIS- groups that have actually committed atrocities and will continue to do so regardless of Hollywood films.

This whole situation is quite sad really. It's not like the guy was some peace loving human that was beloved by his country. He is a dictating jerk that nobody likes, and someone made a film speaking up about it. You'd expect the film to be suppressed in NK, but no America.... Then to take it further and be scared to even be related to it at all?

All that said, not like Team America was ever made into a better movie on a bigger screen.
