The New York premiere of The Interview has been scrapped. The event was supposed to take place Thursday at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York’s Lower East Side, but was canceled by Landmark, a representative for Landmark Theatres confirmed to EW.

The news comes after Rogen and Franco, stars of the comedy about a Kim Jong-un assassination plot, canceled their upcoming media obligations, following a new threat from hackers that invokes 9/11 and seems to warn of attacks against theaters showing the film.

A premiere was held for The Interview in Los Angeles during which no media interviews were permitted.
