The heroes embark upon a harrowing mission to save the world. To infiltrate the terrorist network, Team America recruits Gary Johnston, a rising star on Broadway, to go undercover.

When Sony Pictures canceled the Christmas Day release of The Interview yesterday, several theaters across the country, including the famous Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, announced plans to screen the 2004 Paramount Pictures comedy Team America: World Police in its place. Today, the Drafthouse and other theater chains revealed on their official Twitter accounts that Paramount has canceled the screenings. No details were provided as to why Paramount decided to pull the plug on the handful of screenings.
The comedy, from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, would have been a fitting replacement for The Interview, since they both depict North Korea in an unfavorable light. The Interview centers on Seth Rogen and James Franco's characters being tasked by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park). Team America: World Police, on the other hand, featured the dictator's late father, Kim Jong-Il, voiced by Trey Parker.Read More

Team America speaks!
Trey Parker and Matt Stone have never been afraid to skewer celebrities. Ben Affleck got a hand job from Cartman, Mel Gibson smeared his feces on the wall and the late Christopher Reeve sucked stem cells out of aborted fetuses on South Park. Now, in Team America: World Police, a coalition of actors from the Film Actors Guild (F.A.G. for short) try to stop the heroes from annihilating terrorists because of their liberal Hollywood politics. They all die horrible, bloody deaths.Read More
Team America: World Police: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Puppet love lives in Paramount's Team America: World Police, though the film's creators have had to trim back the movie's puppet sex.
According to Paramount Motion Picture Group vice chairman Rob Friedman, filmmakers Matt Stone and Trey Parker received an R rating Tuesday for their political satire that features a cast of marionettes. The rating comes after a drawn-out battle with the MPAA's ratings board over a scene that depicts simulated sex between puppets. The board initially gave the film, which centers on an international police force fighting global terrorism, an NC-17 rating. But because of contractual obligations that require the filmmakers to deliver an R-rated product to Paramount, the production team submitted the scene with various alterations to the board 10 times before it agreed to an R rating.Read More
