UPDATE: SONY DID IT! They released the movie, good on them. Click here for my review.
Bunch of pansy bitches, I can’t even believe what’s happened. Sony bends over to hacker demands on the OFF CHANCE that something terrorist-y might actually happen during The Interview premieres? They’d rather guarantee the loss of a $180,000,000 budget rather than risk a few million dollars worth of lawsuits for showing it and something actually happening? Unbe-fucking-lievable!
As for North Korea, if they did have a hand in this, which is strongly assumed, I really hope someone deals with them. There are some shitty little communist countries out there, but they take the cake with this nonsense. We released two movies WHERE OUR OWN WHITE HOUSE GETS ATTACKED within the same year of each other (Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down) and no one gave two shits! But two comedians make a movie about the Godly North Korea and everyone loses their minds? Get over yourselves!
My stance on this is deflated. This is the beginning of an age where a single threat from a bunch of fucked-in-the-head cyber terrorists can end a movie’s life cycle before it even hits screens. We give shit to Hollywood all the time for not taking enough risks, but the one time they actually do THIS HAPPENS? Unreal, man. With all my heart, I hope Sony decides to ball up and release the movie officially in some format.
To be real, I didn’t even want to comment on this whole debacle in the first place because of how sickened I am by it all and the whole perpetuation of it. But here I am, ranting. Because if Amy Pascal even happens to read this, maybe my voice (and the hundreds of thousands of voices I speak alongside in this matter) can realize that by not showing The Interview, you’re doing something a whole lot worse than just shooting yourself in the foot.
