“The Interview” may have made its way into North Korea.
According to BBC, a South Korean activist claims he has launched copies of “The Interview” on DVD over the border to North Korea four times, most recently on Saturday.
“The Interview” centers on a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Lee Min-bok, who is self-described North Korea defector, told the AFP, “I launched thousands of copies and about a million leaflets on Saturday, near the western part of the border."
He claims he did the launches privately in remote areas.
The comedy, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, was bogged down by controversy ahead of its U.S. release. Sony was hacked in December 2014, right before the movie was set to hit theaters, and the hackers threatened to attack theaters that showed the film.
Sony execs eventually opted to pull the movie from theaters but they later changed their minds and released it on Netflix and other streaming services. It was also shown in some theaters in a limited release.
