After Sony decided to pull “The Interview” from theatres following threats, some small venues planned to show “Team America: World Police” in protest. Now, Paramount is preventing them from doing that as well.
Terrorist threats are no laughing matter, of course, but the Department of Homeland Security has found no credible threat, and evidence that the Guardians of Peace have any sort of manpower that could do anything within the boundaries of the United States (much less at thousands of locations simultaneously) is practically non-existent. This sort of panicked cowardice would be absurd if it wasn’t so damn sad.
Spot on. For what it’s worth, “Team America: World Police” is currently still streaming on Netflix.
