Obama on Sony Hack: 'Go to the Movies'

By    |   Wednesday, 17 Dec 2014 07:57 PM

President Barack Obama told ABC News on Wednesday that Americans should not fear going to the movies amid threats of terrorist attacks.

"For now, my recommendation would be: Go to the movies," Obama said.

If they do, they won’t be seeing the movie that was subject of the threats: Sony Pictures’ "The Interview," a comedy about the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Sony Pictures’ headquarters was hacked, and embarrassing information, including emails were leaked online. The hackers promised a 9/11-like event at any theaters that showed the movie.

Stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have stopped doing publicity for the movie, and Sony announced Wednesday it would not be released on Christmas Day as scheduled.

Media outlets are reporting that the FBI has confirmed the cyber attack was ordered by North Korean officials.
