• Sony Brings “The Interview” Back From The Dead, Obama Takes Victory Lap

    And just like that, it appears that this national cinematic nightmare is finally over.

    A week after Sony Pictures Entertainment caved to North Korean terror threats and pulled the Christmas day release of its anti-Kim Jong-Un comedy, The Interview, it looks like the movie will actually see the light of day.

    Sony officially announjced today that it is moving forward with a small theatrical release of The Interview. Several independent theaters from Alamo, Texas to Atlanta, Georgia are already posting showtimes for the film. The film will also be available to rent via video on demand.

    The movie’s director and co-star Seth Rogen had this to say: “The people have spoken! Freedom has prevailed! Sony didn’t give up! The Interview will be shown at theaters willing to play it on Xmas day!”

    And, of course, the Narcissist-in-Chief had to take some credit. The White House released the following statement after Sony made their announcement:

    The president applauds Sony’s decision to authorize screenings of the film. As the president made clear, we’re a country that believes in free speech and the right of artistic expression. The decision made by Sony and participating theaters allows people to make their own choices about the film and we welcome that outcome.

    This whole fiasco has been one big clownshow.

    Sony should have never pulled the film in the first place. They completely overreacted. In fact, 62 percent of Americans said Sony overreacted to supposed terrorist threats from the North Koreans.

    All I know is that Sony had better break some Christmas day movie release records, given the fact that this whole thing has been nothing but free publicity.
