According to an executive editor of the Hollywood, Matthew Belloni, “I guess the Sony just wanted to wash their hands from it.”
The Hollywood pushed back right away. The U.S succumbed to an extraordinary attack on the most esteemed, solid rock principal of the free speech by the group of the North Korean terrorists who have threatened to slay the moviegoers just to stop the movie from its release.
The Sony have decided not to show/release “The Interview after the 5 most important theater chains that includes Regal Entertainment and the AMC Entertainment’s announcement in which they said that they are not going to screen the film “The Interview.”
Because of the irresolute support of the movie “The Interview” by the Sony Pictures, also the unclear nature of the any real or the perceived threats, the Regal Entertainment Group has decided that they should delay the opening of the movie “The Interview” in their theaters – according to a statement.
That all began on the night of Tuesday, when the Carmike, that is the 4th biggest cinema chain of the country has decided to call off the planned opening of the movie “The Interview.”
So, the Sony had not at all decided just because they are not in a position to call off the release of the movie “The Interview”. The fact is that there are many exhibitors behind this decision as they are not feeling safe to show the controversial comedy movie “The Interview.”
So, it seems and clear enough that there are the certain threats for the exhibitors from the North Korean terrorists about the release of the comedy movie “The Interview” that has stopped them to show the controversial movie on the screens and that is the main reason behind the Sony’s decision.
