BBC News - North Korea threatens war on US over Kim Jong-un movie
North Korea has promised "merciless" retaliation if a forthcoming Hollywood movie about killing Kim Jong-un is released, say agencies.
A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in state media that the movie's release would be an "act of war".
He did not mention the title, but a Hollywood movie called The Interview with a similar plot is due in October.
Hollywood actors James Franco and Seth Rogen star in the action-comedy film.
They play a talkshow host and his producer who are invited to interview Kim Jong-un, and are subsequently recruited by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to assassinate the leader.
The film's teaser trailer, posted on Youtube, shows a lookalike actor playing Kim Jong-un, as well as fight scenes involving what appear to be North Korean tanks and helicopters, and a nuclear missile launch.
The North Korea spokesman was quoted by the state KCNA news agency as saying: "Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated."
He added that the "reckless US provocative insanity" of mobilising a "gangster filmmaker" to challenge the North's leadership was triggering "a gust of hatred and rage" among North Korean people and soldiers.
"If the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken," the spokesman was quoted as saying...
If all out war on US would prevent Hollywood from making shitty movies then I say: Go, team North Korea
The best marketing they could ever hope for.
The world ends due to a comedy. Fitting really.
I can't remember, did his father get all pissy when Team America: World Police was released?
Chance North Korea Nukes Someone:
1. South Korea: 23%
2. Japan: 7%
3. United States: 4%
4. Themselves: 65%
Ohmergurd! You're in trouble now!
North Korea puts on a mass display as it calls for 'final victory' against U.S. 'imperialists'

War ? With what ? Most of the norko army is engaged in benny hill bucket brigade type shenanigans to get water onto their drought stricken crops.
If north korean asians are so smart , how come they did not stop with one successful nuke test , and pour money and resources into desal plants and pipelines ??
My money says there may well be a nuke lit off on the korean peninsula , and it will be the chinese vaporizing norko leadership. Cause the money men in chinese goverment have had quite enough of kim's shit threatening their profit margins.
I wonder what % of them realize how ridiculous they look.
Is that a rally? Or a
Am I the only one who finds their official statements on this sort of thing hilarious?
"We will deal you sredge hammer brows!"
Do it pussies. Give us the casus belli to really free those poor dumb fucks from that horrible government.
Dude, their population is mostly starving Reapers so no one wants anything to do with them. The crazy leadership would have been bombed long ago if no one had to deal with the refugees and responsibility afterwards.
Yeah Vice has had some incredibly insightful documentaries. They're almost a cross between national geographic and political journalists. They also are the group that orchestrated the Globetrotter games in NK (not sure if that was in those videos)
can anyone explain to me how the fuck North Korea qualified for the world cup in 2010?
I realize no one wants to deal with the North Korean people should something happen. I also know that doing nothing dooms these people to a likely "eternity" of that horrid existence.
Doing anything is entirely up to China. The North Korean government exists because China allows it to. The inevitable change in NK's govt. will likely be started and ended by China without anyone else's help.
Ooooh, I think I see the problem with NK.
They're watching the shittiest movies they can find. Well, no wonder they're so fucking crazy.
The guys over at The Science Institute used to torture Joel with exactly this machine. It drove him maaaaa-ad.
The idea of the NK army getting in boats to invade America would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic.
So is this dude dead or something? Some really weird shit going on with the #2/#3 showing up in South Korea for the weekend and wanting to talk.
