There’s another stupid movie coming out this fall, supposedly a comedy/adventure about a couple of news guys who travel to NorK to interview – and attempt to assassinate – Kim. Hollywood’s simply incapable of producing anything worthwhile, these days.
But the NorK’s got wind of the upcoming movie, and they’re vewy, vewy angwy about it.
They are a pretty humorless bunch, after all, and so they’re once again pledging a “merciless response” if the movie’s actually released. They may not have a sense of humor, but they’re really keen on pledging “merciless responses”.
A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in state media that the movie’s release would be an “act of war”.
The North Korea spokesman was quoted by the state KCNA news agency as saying: “Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated.”
He added that the “reckless US provocative insanity” of mobilising a “gangster filmmaker” to challenge the North’s leadership was triggering “a gust of hatred and rage” among North Korean people and soldiers.
Oh, that sounds terribly serious. You may want to make like a NorK general and write that down in a notebook.
