The Interview Opens Christmas Day In Select Cinemas

Posted in: , , ,

Sony has made an about-face and The Interview is going to open on Christmas Day as planned, if only in a few select cinemas. Almost a week after pulling the movie, the studio is said to have authorized the screening of the film on December 25th in the theatres that have shown interest all along in showing the movie despite the hackers threats.

Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League reported the news on Twitter, saying that his theaters would be making tickets available "within the hour." The Alamo Drafthouse's Dallas location is also now listing tickets for sale. However, until Sony releases a statement, it is unclear how widely the film will be released.

Video - Obama Calls The Interview Star James Flacco While Addressing SONY Hack

Posted in: , ,

Oops! James Flacco? While discussing ‘The Interview’ being pulled from cinemas, President Barack Obama slipped up on one of the names of movies' stars. He mentioned Seth Rogen and James Flacco?

The slip up happened during his end-of-the-year news conference, where President Barack Obama addressed the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment and said he was not happy they pulled "The Interview". He admitted he was a fan of both major actors in the movie.

Some say he may have misidentified James Franco the movie actor, possibly confusing him with Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. See the video below...
