'The Interview'
(2014)
Starring: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park, Diana Bang

This movie caused major ruckus when it was announced, never mind released. The comedy finds Franco and Rogen in North Korea as a star reporter and his producer trying to interview Kim Jong-un. It's a complete goof, but the North Koreans weren't happy about being portrayed in this manner. Their government promised "stern" and "merciless" retaliation if it was shown, even writing to President Obama to have it shelved. Sony responded by delaying the premiere and making changes. In the meantime, Sony Pictures Entertainment was hacked and thousands of internal emails and documents were made public. The wide release was cancelled and the film was put out on demand.
