NEW YORK (AP) — It's supposed to be a comedy, but it's creating major headaches.

Tomorrow night's New York premiere of the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy "The Interview" has been canceled because of violent threats against movie theaters that plan to show it.

The story about two TV journalists involved in a CIA plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has prompted threats from a shadowy group called Guardians of Peace. The group also has hacked thousands of private emails at Sony Pictures Entertainment. "The Interview" is a Sony film.

The Department of Homeland Security says there's "no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters."
