It looks like moviegoers may be able to see "The Interview" after all. According to Tim League, the founder of the Alamo Drafthouse, Sony has authorized some theaters to show "The Interview" on Christmas Day.

not to mention tons of bad pub

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

That movie was not going to cause some kind of disaster except for the viewers who will be mad as hell after seeing it.

You can't give up your lunch money to a Bully just because he threatened you.

but lawsuits can be filed just about anytime a person feels they were wronged by another person or entity.

would the suits have been successful? i dunno. it'd turn in part on whether Sony exposed movie patrons to an unreasonable risk of harm by showing the movie. that could depend in part on how credible the threats were/are and what Sony knew about the threats' credibility.

at this point i wouldn't be surprised if Sony and/or theater owners asked patrons to sign an assumption of risk waiver before entering any theater or complex showing The Interview. i dunno that the waivers would hold up but Sony and/or theater owners may want them signed anyway. or maybe just posting signs in the theater or complex is enough. again, i have no idea if the waivers or postings will protect Sony or the theater owners from being found civilly liable for damages should ppl be hurt by action taken by terrorists in the wake of the decision to show and watch the movie.

fuck you.

> i dunno. it'd turn in part on whether Sony exposed movie patrons to an unreasonable risk of harm by showing the movie. that could depend in part on how credible the threats were/are and what Sony knew about the threats' credibility.

Cancelling it initially gave Sony time to allow the threats to be fully investigated. I understand the 'stand up to terrorism, we won't bck down' angle, but that really shouldn't be sony's priority.

And of course if something did happen, you'd have all these 20/20 hindsight geniuses saying how irresponsible it was on sony's part to go through with the movie.

Sony should've consulted w/Homeland Security about how to respond to a threat from a international terrorists that sought to put American lives and property in jeopardy. if anything Sony should've announced a DELAY of the movie's opening in consideration of concerns from theater owners about security and the potential that showing The Interview could hurt sales of tix for other movies. surely the fedz would've worked w/Sony & the theaters & local law enforcement on security issues and the movie could've been shown at theaters who'd agree to show it.

legal issues could be addressed w/waivers.

fuck you.

"just cause" they pulled it will still go.

IMO this whole stunt was better promo than a few trailers.
