A bit of Hollywood history unfolded on Wednesday. And it might be a glimpse into the future.

The controversial Sony Pictures comedy "The Interview" was released on YouTube, Google Play, the Microsoft Xbox video game console, and a special Web site.

The movie, which started streaming online around 1 p.m. ET, costs $5.99 to rent and $14.99 to buy.

So it is having historic simultaneous release in both living rooms and, come Christmas Day, about 300 independently-owned theaters across the United States.

Sony announced the digital release just an hour ahead of time, after CNNMoney and other news organizations began to report on the studio's plans to distribute "The Interview" through YouTube's movie rental store. Word spread via social media

Didn't see this posted. This was yesterday, so it probably was. Please delete if it was.

Anyway, yeah...so here it is. They'll probably still make lots of money, so um Merry Christmas, Sony. (Plus in looking through 11 pages of search results, I see it's out there for..um...free.)

Available on YouTube, Googleplay, and Sony's Own Website, which was reportedly having some issues yesterday, but seems okay today.

Another Link where they say Seth Rogen says it's better in a theater full of people.

And sorry, but to me 'Hollywood History' would be if they streamed it for FREE and made a real statement to the alleged terrorists.

Yay,,,,,No more late fees, no more lines, no more getting gunned down in a theater by MK Ultra Hegelian Dialectic Psyops, No more disgusting Pickle and Hot dog smell and the talkers in theaters, and no more waiting for other idiots to return the video so you can check it out at Red Box.



Go Sony!!!!!

Laughing all the way to the bank.

Touche, Government/Sony it is still quite easy to guide the masses!

Thank god they stood up for the right of free speech! Murica is still Murica!


Edit- You could not pay me to see this movie. However that is nothing special you could not pay me to see any of the brainwashing nonsense coming of out hollyweird.

Step #1 in freeing your mind, destroy your TV!
Step #2 refrain from using computers to act in place of TV!

Is this to ME? Or just in general? Trust me, I see it. And my brain still functions quite well. Wish I could say the same for my fingers at 3:00a.m. Bwahahaha.

Of course not! It'll be interesting to see if more hacks/DDoS attacks happen.

I just went to YouTube, and you can watch it for free there. There is no fee.

www.youtube.com...

Now you can watch it on ATS.


Edit: Wait... it's just an ad, you have to pay for the stream to rent or own.

And get ready for new copyright .. anti-piracy/hacking laws .. net restrictions .. while sony rakes in more money from a movie that would have flopped otherwise .. the politicians get a christmas bonus .. and uncle scam got a propaganda bonus point ... but .. thats o.k everyone gets to see a movie about the assassination of a sitting world leader .. poor taste on many levels ..

I noticed it was U.S. only and found that odd, seeing as it's online, why follow the traditional release model? Someone may know.

a reply to: Expat888

Ding ding ding. Couldn't agree more. Not really a good kind of history in the making here.

This film is what torrents are for.
Genius marketing, i´ll give 'em that, but people actually paying to see Seth Rogen?
It´s a mad, mad world...

There was a question last week as to whether this was one of the five or so films that the hackers stole. No telling where those certain sites got it now, I reckon. Once it's out there, it's out there.

The same Empire State tried to assassinate Castro for decades… and failed.

At least we can kill the bad guys on the big screen. If it ever does happen in real life average joes can laugh because they remember the movie.

So far we got one, "I saw it, it was alright".

Son of a flop.
