'The Interview' Poll - Will You Watch the Movie?!

Now that The Interview has been released online and is hitting theaters across the country tomorrow, we want to know if JustJared.com readers plan on seeing the film!

If you do plan on watching the film, Seth Rogen has a suggestion for how to see it.

“I need to say that a comedy is best viewed in a theater full of people, so if you can, I’d watch it like that. Or call some friends over,” Seth tweeted.

Here is the movie’s official synopsis: “In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show ‘Skylark Tonight.’ When they discover that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the most unlikely candidates, to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.”

The Interview showings are already selling out one day after news broke that theaters would be screening the film with Sony’s permission.

“We’re seeing filmgoers come out in droves,” Christian Parkes, chief branding officer for the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain said (via Variety). “I can’t imagine what the people at Sony have been through.

Where is 'The Interview' Available Online? Here's Where You Can Stream Without Going to Theaters!

Though The Interview will be playing in select theaters on Christmas, it will be available online one day early (December 24)!

The James Franco and Seth Rogen film will be available to rent at 10:00 a.m. PST in HD on Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft’s Xbox Video, and the Seetheinterview.com for the price of $5.99. Not only can you rent, you can also buy the movie for $14.99!

“It has always been Sony’s intention to have a national platform on which to release this film,” Chairman and CEO of Sony Entertainment Michael Lynton shared in a statement. “With that in mind, we reached out to Google, Microsoft and other partners last Wednesday, December 17th, when it became clear our initial release plans were not possible. We are pleased we can now join with our partners to offer the film nation-wide today.”

He added, “We never stopped pursuing as wide a release as possible for The Interview. It was essential for our studio to release this movie, especially given the assault upon our business and our employees by those who wanted to stop free speech. We chose the path of digital distribution first so as to reach as many people as possible on opening day, and we continue to seek other partners and platforms to further expand the release.”

Netflix is reportedly in talks to stream the film. Stay tuned for more details.
