Team America pulled from theaters in wake of The Interview cancellation

After The Interview — the now infamous comedy wherein two buffoonish TV producers are called upon to assassinate real-life North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — was cancelled by Sony, a number of theaters planned to show Team America: World Police, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's over-the-top satire about, yes, assassinating a North Korean dictator. Those screenings have been pulled, according to Gizmodo.

The official twitter accounts for a number of theaters, including the Alamo Drafthouse, noted the cancellation.

Theaters were going to show the 2004 film as a sort of response to The Interview being pulled. If you need to get your fix of Team America, it looks like you'll have to load up your dusty DVD now.
