I was looking forward to this. I thought their movie, "This is The End" was great fun.

I'm quite shocked at the ease with which some hackers making threats have cowed free expression into submission.

Just a thought:

Let's assume they went forward with it and the film was shown in theatres. And there was a cinema shooting (not necessarily connected to the threat, could be a copycat) Would they be sued?

Perhaps they (SONY), or rather the cinema chains it seems, were most of all afraid of economic repercussions if they went on and things got ugly?

Still, it's sad, of course.

pibbur who doesn't know. But who was surprised when he heard about the decision.
