Sony to Release THE INTERVIEW

Exciting news this morning.  Sony has announced that it will show THE INTERVIEW on Christmas Day at "selected theatres."

Our friends at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin have already booked it.

We at the Jean Cocteau are trying to do the same.

Watch this space for further details.

Gotta love the Drafthouse, my local favorite.

However, have to wonder if this entire thing has been drummed up by Sony as a publicity stunt...

I think that is unlikely.

Unlikely, but Occams Razor, so many people have said this would happen from the start...

One of the benefits of Sony being hacked is that if it were truly a grand conspiracy, we'd have probably heard all about it alongside all the other embarrassing stuff that was leaked.

Unless they faked the hacking, as well, in which case I hope the movie makes enough to compensate for the class action lawsuit filed by Sony's employees, the leaked scripts, the public relations disaster and all the other assorted unpleasantness Sony has suffered as a consequence of it. Not even getting into the massive backlash that would follow the revelation that Sony planned it all as a publicity stunt.

I realise now that by saying this I've turned into one of /those/ people. I'm going out for a walk.

Thank you.
thank you for saying so. I'm one of the thousands of employees whose lives have been thrown into disarray over this and it's disheartening seeing a lot of people comment that they think it's a stunt. But hey, I'm hardly going to be objective about it - for me, it's a gigantic mess that's affecting every sphere of my life- personal, professional, financial, coworkers, friends, and now my industry, art, political, national spheres ... for them it's just a comment on a news story. Still - it stings when people chalk it up to some sort of cynical maneuver that makes little sense to do and would be at the expense of so many. We are just normal people, trying to put food on the table for our families.
The movie is funny - on par with "This is the End" - thank you for working to screen it.
