Relax, North Korea isn’t going to nuke the U.S. over a movie

OK, it’s official – some people may be getting a little overwrought about North Korea’s possible reaction to the release of The Interview -- that much-hyped movie where Kim Jong-un gets (fictionally) assassinated by the CIA (via a couple of patsies played by James Franco and Seth Rogen).

It seems Kim Jong-un doesn’t like the new Seth Rogan movie, The Interview. Not surprising really, it’s a comedy about a fictitious plot to assassinate him.
