Angelina Jolie Receiving Death Threats Over Bosnian War Movie

Bad enough she didn’t get an Oscar nom!

Angelina Jolie, along with the actors from ‘In The Land of Blood and Honey’ have received death threats because of the film’s content. In case you haven’t heard, the subject of the movie is the Bosnian War, not a Panda Bear who learns martial arts. That’s another Angelina Jolie movie.

According to The Guardian, the movie received a peace award at the Berlin film festival and premiered in front of 5,000 people in Sarajevo. Jolie, who wrote and directed the movie, along with several of the cast members are reported to have been the target of death threats.

Jolie told reporters:
"There were things sent to me, there were things posted online. The cast have never complained to me about these threats but I've heard through other people it was happening. One of them did have their windows smashed in on their cars and someone else had an issue when their phone was hacked and emails were sent out saying they were from them and saying they had been hurt."

Jolie’s movie is a bleak one and doesn’t hold back from the atrocities of the war, in which as many as 50,000 women are thought to have been raped. In Sarajevo, the film has divided opinion. Jolie explains that many people are seeking to view the film independently in Serbia, saying "Many people have written to me. People are speaking up and not allowing someone to tell them how they should feel about the film, about each other, about history, and I think this is the extraordinary thing."
