We might have joked in the past about North Korea threatening punishment against Sony - the studio behind upcoming comedy film The Interview - but now it looks like it might be real.

Sony servers were hacked this week by a group calling themselves Guardians of Peace, leaking several Sony films online for download, as well as sensitive market information.

Among the films leaked included Fury, Annie, Mr. Turner and Still Alice, some of which have yet to be released in cinemas.

Sony is currently investigating a possible link to North Korea after a government spokesperson claimed there would be severe punishment for the film studio due to The Interview, a film that sees Seth Rogen and James Franco attempting to assassinate Kim Jong-Un.

The hacking also disrupted Sony's e-mail servers and additional systems, only regaining access to their accounts on Saturday.
