The Sony hackers—possibly known as Guardians of Peace and probably not working for North Korea—have escalated from threatening to release the company's sensitive information to threatening real-life violence against theaters showing the disastrous Rogen/Franco comedy The Interview.

"The world will be full of fear. Remember the 11th of September, 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you'd better leave.)" the hackers said in a Tuesday morning leak of Sony files that they're calling "a Christmas gift."

Variety reports the new file cache is named after Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton. If the hackers' past releases are any indication, it's likely a dump of his private emails.

The hackers have already followed through on their original threat, making shitloads of sensitive Sony files—including a clip of the much-discussed Kim Jong-un death scene from The Interview—public.

The Interview opens on Christmas Day, and the hackers specifically mentioned targeting the movie's premiere (although it already happened without incident last week in downtown L.A.)

"Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment," they wrote, "All the world will denounce the SONY."
