This Texas Theater Had the Best Response to North Korea… Then This Happened

UPDATE: Paramount Pictures is cancelling all screenings of Team America: World Police. The studio declined to comment on the motivation for the cancellation. You still can watch Team America, just not at a theater. It is available to view on both Netflix and Amazon.


Shortly after it was announced that North Korea was behind the hacking at Sony Pictures, the company announced that it was cancelling the release of “The Interview.” The film is a comedy about journalists who interview Kim Jong-un, which was scheduled to debut on Christmas Day.

The company succumbed to the demands of cyber terrorists and there was considerable backlash about this decision. Then a Texas theater stepped up and offered a very American response to Sony’s decision.

Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas/Fort Worth announced they will offer a free screening of “Team America,” a comedy from the creators of South Park that has comedic and patriotic undertones while making a fool of Kim Jong-il, Kim Jong-un’s late father.



Sure, you can celebrate your independence the usual way: slow sipping a beer as you stand over a grill while people you have only mild contempt for wait inside for their free meal. OR you can join The Action Pack as we celebrate TEAM AMERICA’S celebrate its 10th anniversary!

The world is different in 2014 than it was in 2004. Kim Jong Il is gone. I don’t know if Michael Moore is still around or not. But a lot of the brilliance in TEAM AMERICA is timeless. Acting is still the greatest gift any human being can possess, and it’s the only way to save America from the terrorists. And Matt Damon is still Matt Damon.

So celebrate your indendence (sic) this year with the Action Pack. We’ll have subtitles for all the songs and all of our favorite quotes, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to scream out “AMERICA! F YEAH!” at the top of your lungs. And yeah, we will have American flags, red white and blue streamers, balloons, and more for everyone. And THAT is how true American heroes will be celebrating this year.

How do you think Sony should have responded to this cyber attack?
