This may be difficult to believe, but North Korea isn't pleased about a new film that maybe kind of sort of makes fun of it.
A North Korea official has a some harsh words concerning new film "The Interview," which stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as two journalists assigned by the CIA to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
"A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the U.S. has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine," Kim Myong-chol, executive director of the Centre for North Korea-U.S. Peace and an unofficial spokesman for the regime in Pyongyang, told U.K. publication The Telegraph. "And let us not forget who killed (President John F.) Kennedy -- Americans.
I thought it was Sicilians ... or Cubans ... or Russians. Or all of them.
"In fact, President (Barack) Obama should be careful in case the U.S. military wants to kill him as well," he said.
Scary talk. Well ... at least they don't have nukes ...
The film, which is released in October, tells the story of a talk-show host and his producer who score a rare interview with the North Korean dictator. Then the CIA gets involved and all kind of hell breaks loose.
Myong-chol told The Telegraph that Kim Jong-un -- believed to be a movie buff -- will still likely watch the movie, which prompted a tweet from Rogen.
In the trailer, a government agent says North Koreans believe anything that Kim Jong Un says, including that "he can speak to dolphins" and that "he never has to urinate or defecate."
Boy, that would come in handy on road trips.
Myong-choi said the film shows Hollywood no longer makes good movies, and prefers British movie.
"James Bond is a good character and those films are much more enjoyable," he said.
He must have missed the one in which the bad guys was a North Korean terrorist.
