Theaters stopped the showing of Sony’s movie "The Interview" which is comedy about the assassination of North Korean President Kim Jong-Un, after Hacker known as (GOP Guardians of Peace) threatens moviegoers. Sony released an statement saying they would support theaters' decisions not to show the movie. GOP issued the threat on Tuesday promising of a September 11 like attack on theaters which will show the upcoming movie. The hackers were also the one who admitted to stole sensitive data from Sony Pictures Entertainment and posted some online.

Included to those cancelled is the New York premiere of the movie.

Here is their full warning to Sony:

"Warning

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."

The actors of the movie Seth Rogen and James Franco, have also cancelled media appearances, which includes NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

A U.S. Department of Homeland Security official said Tuesday that they are aware of the threat, but had "no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States."
