TEAM AMERICA Screenings in Response to THE INTERVIEW Cancellation Nixed by Paramount

America! Fuck no! / Hiding our heads in the motherfucking sand, yeah! 

In the wake of yesterday’s sudden, unceremonious decision by Sony to cancel its release plans for The Interview, the James Franco and Seth Rogen-starring Kim Jong-un assassination comedy, several theaters across the country, like the great folks at the Alamo Drafthouse, were going to show Team America: World Police in its place. However, today we have learned that those screenings of the 2004 satire from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that lampoons Jong-un’s late father, Kim Jong-il, have been cancelled by Paramount Pictures. Both the Alamo Drafthouse’s Dallas Fort-Worth location and Cleveland’s Capitol Theater confirmed the decision today via Twitter:

Well, this week keeps on getting more and more discouraging. Can we just get a montage that will take us up to New Year’s Eve already?

Stay tuned to Nerdist.com for more news as it develops.

    The ghosts of America’s response to vague threats past, present, and future (that is, Muhamar Khadaffi, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden) are just laughing their vaporous asses off right now. Yeah, America got the mission done. What mission was that, again?
