The New York premiere of Sony Pictures’s comedy “The Interview”, which imagines the assassination of North Korean President Kim Jong-Un, is cancelled amid reports that one theatre chain had scrapped plans to show it after threats from a hacking group.

The hackers, who said they were also responsible for seizing control of Sony Corp’s computer system last month, on Tuesday warned people to stay away from cinemas showing the film starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, and darkly reminded moviegoers of the Sept. 11 hijacked plane attacks on the United States in 2001.

"We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time," the hackers wrote.

"(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)"
