Canceled! No More "The Interview"...For Now! 

The hackers have officially won! Sony cancelled "The Interview" across America! Take a look at their press release below:

In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.

Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.

But truth be told, you're not missing much! Unless you are really, really dying to see Kim Jong-un's head explode, much of the comedy in "The Interview" are hit and miss, more misses than hits. But it's sad that a studio must kowtow to external pressures for a release of the film. I wonder what Seth Rogen and James Franco are saying about this developing story.
