A comedy starring Seth Rogan and James France has been pulled from cinemas after hackers threatened the studio behind it with violence and the leaking of sensitive information.
Sony has decided not to release The Interview, a film which pokes fun at North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un after it was threatened by hackers, the studio announced. In a a statement they confirmed there were no further plans to release the buddy comedy.
The investigation into the hacking is now in the hands of the FBI, who have warned other businesses involved with the film, that they too could become victims of hacking. Not everyone has given up - Texas cinema chain Alamo Drafthouse said at least one of its theatres would be screening Team America: World Police, in which American agents take on North Korea's previous dictator, Kim Jong Il.

North Yorkshire Police have apologised to some of Jimmy Savile's victims, admitting they missed opportunities to properly investigate the disgraced children's entertainer and one of his friends when they were alive.
Police made the apology after an investigation into the Savile and the former mayor of Scarborough, Peter Jaconelli, found there would have been enough evidence for a prosecution. The force said 35 people had come forward with allegations about the pair.
A spokesman said 32 cases related to Jaconelli, between 1958 and 1998, and included allegations of indecent assault, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, gross indecency and rape. In the case of Savile, there were five reported offences, from 1979 to 1988, which ranged from sexual assault to rape. Two people claimed to be victims of both men.
