THE INTERVIEW: Sony To Release This Christmas In Select Theaters And VOD!!!

After Sony Pictures made the decision last week to pull Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's latest comedy The Interview from its forthcoming Christmas Day release in theaters, they've decided to send the film out after all. The Wrap reports that Sony is distributing the film in participating theaters as well as VOD on Christmas Day, despite the threats dished out by Guardians of Peace. This comes just after the Art House Convergence, a national coalition of independent movie theaters, petitioned to ask Sony to let them release The Interview for America to see. We're just glad the film is getting released.

Specific details on participating theaters haven't been revealed yet, but here's a couple tweets:

That's The Plaza Atlanta and Alamo Drafthouse theaters confirmed to have The Interview on Christmas Day, and we're betting there's some more coming soon. As for the VOD release, the streaming service that will be carrying the movie has yet to be revealed, but we're expecting some kind of official press release from Sony later today. We just hope that whoever handles the VOD release can handle the inevitably high traffic that will be coming for the movie after all this controversy turned even more heads than it otherwise would have.

Sony has released a statement from CEO Michael Lynton confirming the release saying:
"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. 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.
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."
We're still waiting for a list of theaters and plans for the VOD release, so keep checking back for more.
