R.I.P.

We still can't believe Prince is gone, but his legacy will always live on.

We've already seen countless celebrities pay tribute to the late legend after his tragic passing on Thursday. And following the news of his death, the hitmaker's music has soared to the top of the Billboard charts AND reached number one on iTunes.

Plus, MTV dedicated a block of programming to the soulful singer's various videos, and even aired his movie Purple Rain the night he died.

Well now, the country's biggest movie theater chain is following suit.

On Friday, it was revealed that Warner Brothers and AMC Theaters are teaming up to honor the powerful performer by putting on special screenings of the 1984 rock musical over the next week.

From Saturday, April 23, through Thursday, April 28, the cinema giant will be showing the iconic film in 87 locations across the US.

Movie Theaters Refuse To Show The Interview Following Terrorism Threats From Sony Hackers

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersScary!Sony

no title

This is terrible.

Not only was the New York premiere of The Interview canceled following the terrorist threat made by the Sony hackers, but now other theaters are pulling out as well.

The Carmike Theater chain, which operates 278 theaters in 41 states, is the first to cancel all showings of the film.

How awful. We are just torn up at the fact that these hackers have made such an impact.

We obviously want everyone to stay safe, but we just can't accept that giving in to the demands of terrorists makes us more secure.

If they get what they want, doesn't this set a dangerous precedent for others to make threats in the future?

We don't know the answer here, but we're just so sad that there are people in this world who would make these kinds of threats.
