The Interview is on release now


The Interview is on release now

Sony Pictures said it would show The Interview in some US theatres.  The White House praised Sony's about-face, which the studio said would result in "a limited theatrical release" on Christmas Day of the film, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco and is about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.  "The decision made by Sony and participating theatres allows people to make their own choices about the film, and we welcome that outcome," presidential spokesman Eric Schultz said.  Obama had called Sony's decision to pull the movie a mistake, suggesting it could set a precedent in which "some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States." George Clooney, had also assailed the cancelled release, with some accusing the studio of self-censorship. Sony Pictures Entertainment chief executive Michael Lynton said the studio was looking for more options to screen the film, which major US theatre chains pulled because of threats from hackers who warned of a Sept 11, 2001 style of attack.  Lynton said: "We have never given up on releasing The Interview and we're excited our movie will be in a number of theatres on Christmas Day." He said Sony was trying to secure other platforms and more theatres "so that this movie reaches the largest possible audience."  It is notable that The Journal of Journalism & Mass Communication and Prestigious business management journal (International Journal of Business Management) already reported that it is a move to boost the movie. The journals reported on 14 December, 2014 that 'The Interview' has attained enough publicity like Harry Potter worldwide, and it is much ready now to make big international business. It remained unclear how many theatres would be allowed to screen the film and if major movie chains would reverse course and join the group of authorised exhibitors. North Korea experienced Internet problems at the weekend and a complete outage of nearly nine hours before links were largely restored on Tuesday; US officials said Washington was not involved in this.  Jim Cowie, chief scientist at Dyn Research, linked it with power problems inside North Korea.

The Interview: The truth you will never know

Kim Jong UnnSony is facing criticism from pundits, celebrities, and even President Obama, over their decision to pull “The Interview” from theaters amid threats from North Korean-backed hackers, ahead of its scheduled Christmas Day release. The comedy film, which stars James Franco and Seth Rogen, depicts the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un. Obama including his celebrity friend and regular donor George Clooney, said they thought Sony made a “mistake” by yanking the movie. “We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States,” Obama said. “Because if somebody is able to intimidate folks out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what they start doing when they start seeing a documentary they don’t like or news reports they don’t like. The president said that he wished Sony had run their decision by him first. The Journal of Journalism & Mass Communication told that 'The Interview' has attained enough publicity like Harry Potter worldwide, and it is much ready now to make big international business. Prestigious business management journal (International Journal of Business Management) here said that ultimately Sony has gained wide publicity through it's controversy. The U.S. could finally force North Korea to talk with it, indirectly. Here political diplomacy pushes North Korea to say that The U.S. should bear in mind that it will face serious consequences in case it rejects our proposal for joint investigation and presses for what it called countermeasure while finding fault with the North Korea. North Korea could earn a negative image among FDIs for business incubation. The U.S. could spread rumors successfully if it is really wrong, as North Korea has expressed. If really hackers are behind it, they could successfully turn the wave to Norh Korea's prestige.
