BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The Interview has had a heck of a ride from the outset with its theater release threatened with 9/11-style attacks through the infamous Sony hacks, which later saw the film's release suppressed through its smaller SVOD distribution path. Now, thanks to some dedicated protestors, the film will expand its release with a very bizarre release in North Korea.
Have you ever seen Will Ferrell really flip his shit? Well, actually, he did that a little bit of that in Old School. And in Anchorman. And in Zoolander. And Elf. So, in most of his films there’s at least one major freakout moment. His latest one in the upcoming movie Zeroville might take the cake, though.
The controversy surrounding The Interview has been one of the most highly tracked in recent memory. But, as pointed out by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in their 2015 Golden Globes opener, the controversy was more interesting than the movie. The film has received a ton of harsh criticism in America by reviewers, but what do the people of North Korea think about The interview?
An editor who worked on the comedy has now said in an interview about The Interview that one significant scene was toned down, though it was a creative choice, and not one mandated by the studio
The Interview is about to get an even wider aperture. Sony has reached agreements with many big U.S. cable and satellite providers to distribute the film via pay-per-view and video-on-demand services.
People across Asia have been downloading and watching The Interview in their thousands. And I think we all know why.
As we get closer and closer to the movie’s initial Christmas Day release date, we are finding out about more and more ways that you might be able to watch the controversial comedy… starting as early as TODAY!
What we don’t know, yet, if this is just a slight trickle of theaters, or if a floodgate of supporting locations are suddenly about to be announced. Obviously, people are chomping at the bit to be able to see Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s The Interview, for various reasons.
Sony had a tough decision to make after the infamous hackers demanded they bury the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy The Interview as deep into their archives as they could: either release the film and potentially risk the safety of many, or cancel its release until further measures are taken. As we all know, the studio went with the latter, and at least some Americans agreed with the choice.
This has to be our retaliation, right? There’s no other explanation as to North Korea suddenly being offline other than the fact that President Obama told his top tech geeks to unplug the hostile nation while he was vacationing in Hawaii with his family.
In light of the current situation with Seth Rogen and James Franco, there's been heavy discussion about the duo’s future work, including Pineapple Express 2.

Paramount is blocking theaters from hosting screenings of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Team America: World Police in place of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s The Interview, according to Tweets posted by the theaters.
You know who hasn’t responded on social media yet? Seth Rogen, whose last Tweet was about Birdman. Like us, he probably doesn’t know what to say in the wake of this increasingly bizarre story.
Much smaller chains like Celebration! Cinemas and Malco Theatres told Variety they had yet to make their decision on whether to screen the film. But fear of attacks, or the fear of violent outbursts at theaters carrying the movie, appear to have blocked The Interview from opening on Christmas Day.
The situation with Sony's hacking problems has lead to the demand we were all waiting to drop. Read on to find out what this says about The Interview, and just who might be making these demands.
Want to know how much Seth Rogen and James Franco were paid for The Interview? Then today is your lucky day because the mischievous scamp who hacked Sony Pictures has released the information for all the world to see.

Famous people don't always get the chance to pick who will play them in a biopic about their life, but that doesn't stop them from imaging their dream choice (as I'm sure many of you do). Take Andrew Dice Clay, for example. One can't say if a movie will ever be made about his life and career, but the stand-up comedian has someone in mind to star in the project should anyone ever decide to make it.
Joining me on this week’s episode is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, and together we pitch six different actors who we would like to see potentially take on the lead role in Doctor Strange. Who do we want to see get the part? You’ll have to watch to find out!
While most of the characters in Rogen and Goldberg’s This Is The End find a way to get raptured and taken off to heaven, that was not the fate that wound up being orchestrated for James Franco. Instead, a plan to "sacrifice" himself in the third act of the movie goes horribly awry, and he winds up getting eaten by Danny McBride and his team of cannibals.
After years of success writing some of the funniest moves in Hollywood, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg truly stepped up their game in 2013. The duo made their directorial debut with This Is The End, and the apocalyptic comedy was not only a smash hit at the box office, but also won mass critic approval. Now they are back to show that their freshman effort was no fluke, and they’re doing so with a project that is equal parts funny, epic and controversial.

Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey, if we’re getting formal, is the story of a guy who earned the vomit-influenced nickname Rant thanks to a particularly disgusting prank he pulled as a child. Though disturbing, the story is engrossing due to Palahniuk’s use of “oral” narratives given by many of the people who knew Rant during his relatively short life.
