The scene where Kim Jong-il tricks Hollywood into doing what he wants. Fiction!

If we can't go to the movies to watch Kim Jong-un's head explode while falling from a helicopter, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Dallas/Ft. Worth wants to make sure we can at least watch his father, Kim Jong-il, be impaled on top of an old-timey spiked German military helmet. Trey Parker and Matt Stone's 2005 critique of America's muscular foreign policy (and the liberal hand-wringing that accompanied it) will play over Christmas weekend, and its combination of toilet humor and world politics—it's definitely the only feature-length puppet movie to ever name-check Hans Blix—is the perfect cultural Tylenol for the headache that is The Interview.
