'The Interview' makes waves in US cinemas

  • The much-talked-about film ‘The Interview’ opened to packed cinema houses across the United States on Christmas Day. The release of the $US44 million film, revolving around two journalists recruited by the CIA to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, was earlier cancelled by Sony Pictures due to threats of cyber attack. This decision had not gone down well with people who matter, like US president Barack Obama, politicians as well as such Hollywood celebrities. They feared that it may set up a precedent of self-censorship.

     Later, Sony made the film available online. Co-directors Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, also co-stars in the film,  thanked fans for their support as they appeared during early morning screening of ‘The Interview’  at a cinema in Los Angeles.
