Paramount kills Team America: World Police

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/12/18/team-america-world-police-screenings-canceled/

Given that the makers of this movie are the guys behind South Park, it seems only fitting that they are trying to capitalize on the revolutionary Cartmanland Marketing System:

“I’m sorry, you can’t see this movie!  Nobody can see this movie!  Even I can’t see this movie!”

Congratulations to North Korea on securing some of the prophet Mohammed’s special goo.
