Guardians of Peace, the group of hackers which claims to be behind the Sony Pictures hack has now sent a threatening message to all movie theatres who plan on showing Sony’s upcoming Seth Rogen and James Franco starrer “The Interview”.
The group has also leaked over terabytes of Sony Pictures data, including business mails like Snapchat acquiring QR Scan.Me and Vergence Eyeglasses. In a message first spotted by Buzzfeed, the hacker group says,
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made. The world will be full of fear, We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
The group also mentions the unforgettable 9/11 attacks and said that a repeat of same could happen to all those theatres which showcase the movie. The message further reads,
Remember the 11th of September 2001
The Interview, which is a story about the assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is expected to be a big Christmas release and will release across all major theatres in the U.S. This threat comes after the “Christmas Gift” Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton mails which the group just recently released.
Here’s the full warning message :
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.
