During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

North Korea famously has a varsity letter in both craziness and nonsensical oppression, so it’s not too surprising to learn that they’ve banned their fair share of movies for ridiculous reasons. So when we say, “North Korea forbade anyone from seeing Roland Emmerich’s 2012,” you might be thinking, “That makes sense. Did they ban it for showing the destruction of some important Korean landmark, or just because it’s the worst fucking movie ever made?” Neither. They banned it because it ran counter to their own crazypants prophecies about the year 2012.

You see, 2012 was the 100-year anniversary of the birth of North Korea’s founder, Kim Il Sung, which for them was a time of great celebration that unfortunately happened to coincide with Emmerich’s babbling pseudoscience about Mayan Armageddon. While Kim’s grand anniversary was gearing up to be a bitching shindig promising to “open the grand gates to becoming a rising superpower,” Emmerich’s movie foretold mass drownings and the death of Woody Harrelson, both of which will instantly ruin a party.
