Controversial Film 'The Interview' Will Now Air On Christmas
“The people have spoken! freedom has prevailed!”
That’s a tweet from actor Seth Rogen, a star in the controversial film the “The interview,” about an assassination plot against North Korea’s leaders.
The tweet came in the wake of today’s that there will be a limited release of the film on Christmas day.
This move comes days after Sony pulled the film, following a hacking attack and terrorist threats — a decision that led to widespread criticism, including from President Obama, who said he disagreed with the action.
Jason Bellini of the Wall Street Journal joins Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson to talk about the breaking news and what this means.
