Several movie theaters that were planning to show the 2004 comedy “Team America: World Police” because Sony Pictures had bailed on the release of another North Korea-themed movie, “The Interview,” said on Thursday that Paramount Pictures had cancelled their screenings of the puppet movie.

Sony Pictures cancelled the Dec. 25 release of “The Interview” on Wednesday after major theaters chains backed out, following threats from alleged North Korean hackers.

As a replacement, theaters such as the Texas Alamo Drafthouse decided to screen “Team America” instead, as it contained similar mockery of the North Korean regime.

But on Thursday afternoon, several theaters, including the Drafthouse, announced that Paramount Pictures had pulled their “Team America” screenings.
