Scratch That: Paramount Pulls Planned ‘Team America’ Theater Showings
  |  @   |  

This week, Sony canceled the release of The Interview, the highly controversial political satire starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, after North Korean hackers threatened 9/11-style attacks on any theaters that screened the film this Christmas.

Once The Interview was pulled, the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas announced its plans to show instead Team America: World Police, the 2004 satirical comedy from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s that featured a world police team on a mission to combat a terrorist plot led by Kim Jong-il, the father of current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. (Marionettes are used in the film instead of actors.) Now, Paramount Pictures has reportedly pulled the planned Team America screenings.

Deadline reports that the Drafthouse said about the cancellation that it was “due to circumstances beyond our control.” The theater will be refunding the money to those who already purchased tickets. The Capitol Theater in Cleveland posted to their Twitter account today that Paramount canceled their Team America.

You can still get your Team America fix with the Blu-ray, DVD, or Instant Video.
