On Tuesday, Sony executives decided that they would release "The Interview," in theaters. The movie will be playing as many as 300 select theaters nationwide starting Christmas Day. Wednesday, Sony announced the film was made available online for streaming.
When the controversial movie was originally pulled from theaters, celebrities demonstrated their outrage on Twitter. Now, celebrities are celebrating its release.
"The Interview" stars James Franco and Seth Rogen were among the first to celebrate thanking Sony and recommending people see it in theaters.
The people have spoken! Freedom has prevailed! Sony didn't give up! The Interview will be shown at theaters willing to play it on Xmas day!— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) December 23, 2014
Here's what others are saying:
Sony did the right thing and got The Interview out even before its original release date. They should be commended for getting it done.— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) December 24, 2014
