Sony Pushes Seth Rogen's 'The Interview' Back to Christmas Day

August 7, 2014

The Interview

Things are already going to be pretty busy at the movie theater on Christmas Day with the release of Tim Burton's Big Eyes, the R-rated comedy Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the Disney musical Into the Woods, the family film Paddington, and Angelina Jolie's World War II drama Unbroken. However, things recently got a little less crowded with Cameron Crowe's Hawaii project moving to the summer of 2015. But now Sony Pictures is changing that by pushing the initial fall release of Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's controversial comedy The Interview back a couple months to Christmas Day this winter. But why?

There's already one R-rated comedy arriving on Christmas Day, but maybe the studio is counting on the controversy surrounding the film making it a bigger hit. Or maybe they just need a little more time to finish the film, especially since Rogen has been pretty damn busy lately. For those who don't know, the film follows James Franco as a handsome talk show host of "Skylark Tonight" who finds himself and his producer (Rogen) into a dangerous CIA organized plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea under the guise of a television interview. North Korea is already pissed about the movie, but maybe some holiday cheer will change that. Watch the trailer for The Interview right here, and stay tuned.

I don't need this any sooner than when they decide to release it. Not knocking it, but it just doesn't scream must see!

I think if these guys start a war over a movie, it shows that we as humans failed. It's never happen, NK is just press hungry, it's like when 2 kids are arguing Kid one calls the other Kid two a poop face, kid 1 who said the word poop face is in serious trouble, where as the kid 2 who got called a poop face is actually the trouble maker, and he's always getting in trouble. So to make him feel less of a problem, he assigns new blame, since the reason he got called a poop face is unknown, the known is that he must have had done something bad to be called a poop face, but that is overlooked since the reaction came from the bad kid being called a name.
