The Interview getting limited theatrical release, possibly VOD

0

It's a Christmas miracle!

After all of the hubub and hooey giving attention to a film that's probably super funny, but forgettable, Sony is allowing a limited theatrical run of The Interview on its intended Christmas Day release (for those theaters that want it). Theater chains like Alamo Drafthouse and The Plaza Theater in Atlanta have jumped in, adding showings to their line ups, while Sony is mulling over a VOD release and is going over their options. 

We'll have more news as it comes, and of course, expect a review. I wondered what made Sony reconsider the release? Maybe Obama? Haha, no probably not. Here's the press release.

SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES LIMITED THEATRICAL RELEASE OF THE INTERVIEW ON CHRISTMAS DAY

[Hollywood - December 23, 2014]  Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that The Interview will have a limited theatrical release in the United States on Christmas Day.

“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.”
