The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Dallas/Forth Worth, Texas, will screen the 2004 film Team America: World Police instead of Seth Rogen's movie The Interview, which has been pulled by Sony. The studio appear to have buckled under pressure from hackers, thought to be based in North Korea.

"We're just trying to make the best of an unfortunate situation," James Wallace, creative manager and programmer at the cinema told the Hollywood Reporter. American flags and other patriotic accessories will be handed out by theater employees, according to Wallace.

Team America, written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, revolved around Kim Jong Il - the father of Kim Jong Un. The posters included the tagline, "Putting the F back in Freedom".

Seth Rogen and James Franco's movie tells the story of two hapless broadcasters tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un. Sony studio co-chairman Amy Pascal had initially asked Rogen to re-edit a particularly gory scene in the movie in which Jong Un's head exploded after a helicopter set on fire.

In a note on its website, the theater said: "THAT is how true American heroes will be celebrating this year, but if you want to let the terrorists win...well, that's your prerogative."

Sony cancelled the release of The Interview on Wednesday after the country's five largest theater chains apparently decided against showing it. "We respect and understand our partners' decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers," the studio said in a statement.

"A hilariously irreverent look at post-9/11 America," said Forrest Hartman of the Reno Gazette-Journal at the time of Team America's release.
