'The Interview' has been cancelled completely with 'no further plans' for a VOD release.
It's official. The Interview
will not premiere, it won't be released in theaters, and Sony
has "no further plans" to give it a VOD release at this time.
From Film Drunk
“In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.
Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.”
It feels as though the entire United States united
together for this movie. We could take "Guardians of Peace
" like a joke. However, their hack set off a domino effect where no one wants to be held accountable, just in case something actually does go wrong.
