President Obama On The SONY Threats: 'My Recommendation Would Be That People Go To The Movies'

People are getting pretty scared of going to the movie theaters this holiday.

Especially since it seems like the threats claiming terrorists will attack movie theaters who dare to show Sony's The Interview WERE probably from North Korea. But when has a North Korea threat ever been taken seriously before?

President Obama was a part of an exclusive interview with ABC News BEFORE Sony announced their decision to pull the movie from theaters, and he was already hinting that U.S. citizens should feel pretty safe about going to the movies.

Here's what he said:

"Well, the cyber-attack is very serious. We're investigating, we're taking it seriously. We'll be vigilant, if we see something that we think is serious and credible, then we'll alert the public. But for now, my recommendation would be that people go to the movies."

The president also apparently believed that authorities had "no credible evidence" that the threats were actually a "serious threat to theaters."

It definitely seems that President Obama believes these kind of cyber attacks are a more dangerous threat for our future rather than an actual danger for moviegoers. Who is to stop hackers from making ANY kind of wild threats when they know people will cave to them, no matter how real they are?

We wish the nation had the chance to prove these hackers that this shizz won't fly — it's just kind of hard to watch a movie now when no movie theater will play it!
