It appears that Sony had a change of heart and will be releasing their film The Interview after all.
After announcing they would not distribute the film following the reluctance of many theaters to show the movie after ominous threats, Sony has decided to show the film in selected theaters.
The Alamo Drafthouse, headquartered in Texas, made the announcement on Twitter.
They wrote, “Breaking news: Sony has authorized screenings of THE INTERVIEW on Christmas Day. We are making shows available within the hour. #Victory”.
The Alamo has theaters in California, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Texas, and Virginia.
The Plaza Atlanta also tweeted, writing, “Breaking Plaza News:The Interview will open Exclusive on 12/25 . The Plaza will be one of the few theaters in the nation to open the film”.
George Clooney also weighed in, saying, “We cannot be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all f***ing people.”
Government officials have now revealed that North Korea was behind the hack on the movie studio, something they deny.
