    The limited release is testing the water. If people beat the doors down at those few theaters, the rest of the theaters around the country will be begging for release to them, too.

    I wish all movies were released online simultaneously with the theatrical release. I HATE going to movie theaters, and would gladly pay the same price to watch new releases at home.

    I don't know if I'll get gigged for this. I don't think I should considering the fact that it's breaking news and it's being posted directly from the source. The Interview is now available for download. Sony has given a massive middle finger to NK and decided to release the movie online. Admittedly for around the same prices a movie theater would charge. Let's see what the reaction is when NK gets their Wifi password back and realize the movie is now out there for the world to see.

    Sticking it to NK? That would be by changing nothing about the movie, this was supplication. They probably only did this because of the backlash.
    Appease commie thugs-get more of it-thats the lesson Sony and hollywood in general is gonna have to figure out.

    No, Sony decided it and Columbia followed orders.

    Yes it is, since Sony owns Columbia.
    Having to explain to you that subsidiary does not mean they decide how many deals Columbia comes up with before distribution really is tiresome. A controlling stake does not mean the micromanagement you believe it does. Not only that, it does not mean the subservience you think it does. Ultimately, this decision on distribution came down to Columbia's executives in the US not Sony's executives in Japan. Is this really hard for you to understand?

    Lmao, they appeased... by... releasing the movie anyways on an online service where they knew it would be pirated within hours of its release? Hm. Yeah, you're stretching.

Box office is actually a small percentage of what Sony would make on this and given the estimated box office projections of the movie, this movie's box office wouldn't even have covered Sony's production cost. This topic really isn't your forté. Get serious.

    Box office is one thing, so is international distribution. And yes-they still caved. But I know-you are just an expert on this, and everything else aren't you.

    but they're releasing it at theaters, too.

    and a lot more people will see it than would have had Little Kim just kept his mouth shut.
