Obama says people should 'go to the movies'

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says his administration is taking the cyberattack against Sony studios seriously. He says people should "go to the movies."

Sony said Wednesday it was canceling the Dec. 25 release of "The Interview" after many theaters said they would hold off on screening the film.

Threats have been made against theaters planning to show the film, a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korea's leader.

A U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity said federal investigators have connected North Korea to the hacking.

Obama told ABC News in an interview Wednesday that the administration will be "vigilant" and will alert the public if there is evidence of a "serious and credible" threat.

But for now, Obama says: "My recommendation would be that people go to the movies."
