The Interview is a comedy about the assassination of North Korea's president, but it has has been cancelled amid threats from hackers.

Major US movie theater chains are delaying plans to show Sony Pictures' North Korea parody "The Interview" after threats made on cinemas showing the major motion picture by a hacking group that waged a cyberattack on the Hollywood studio.

The hackers who are claiming responsibility for seizing control and leaking Sony Corp's e-mails computers are warning moviegoers to stay away from cinemas showing the film. They reminded moviegoers of the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks on the United States.
