President Barack Obama Vulcan salute Leonard Nimoy

Today, the world mourns the death of the great Leonard Nimoy, best known for bringing to life the character of Mr. Spock on Star Trek. The actor had fans far and wide and touched so many people, including U.S. President Barack Obama, who is a self-professed Star Trek fan and has flashed the Vulcan “Live Long and Prosper” salute many times, including when he met Trek star Nichelle Nichols, as well as when he met Spock himself.

The Interview

Sony Pictures currently has no plans on releasing The Interview in any format. But this is not just about the studio canceling the release of a movie; the current situation in Hollywood has gained international attention. U.S. Intelligence confirmed that the hackers who broke into the studio’s computer network, leaking emails and acquiring confidential and personal data, were the North Koreans. Though NATO applauded Sony for pulling the film’s release for the safety of audiences after the hackers threatened “9/11-style attacks” on any theaters showing the film, celebrities and a majority of moviegoers were displeased with the decision. Many say that this is an attack on our freedom of speech and that it sends a message that the U.S. is willing to let foreign tyrants dictate to and censor us.

In his final press conference of 2014, President Barack Obama talked about the recent controversy, saying that Sony “made a mistake” not releasing James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s political comedy, which involves a plot to assassinate the current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Meanwhile, the studio has pulled all promotions of the film, trailers, clips, posters, and banners after the hackers made a new threat.
