Sony Will Release ‘The Interview’ Starting on Christmas Day

“U-S-A! U-S-A!!” Sony execs, film fans and George Clooney will no doubt chant that refrain come Christmas Day. The studio did an about face and confirmed that The Interview will land in limited release at select theaters starting on Christmas.

“We have never given up on releasing ‘The Interview’ and we’re excited our movie will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day,” said Michael Lynton, chairman and CEO of Sony Entertainment. “At the same time, we are continuing our efforts to secure more platforms and more theaters so that this movie reaches the largest possible audience.

“I want to thank our talent on ‘The Interview’ and our employees, who have worked tirelessly through the many challenges we have all faced over the last month. While we hope this is only the first step of the film’s release, we are proud to make it available to the public and to have stood up to those who attempted to suppress free speech.”

Who wants to bet that movie goers will sing and recite the Star Spangled banner and the Pledge of Allegiance before the movie? Two hours later, when they realize the movie sucks, they’ll wish it had never been released.
