The Interview Now Highest Grossing Online Film of All Time From Making $31 Million
Until recently, movies released through VOD hadn’t even seen grosses that go into the double digit millions. However, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview changed all of that as, over the course of two weeks, it brought in over $31 million from being sold online and through various cable and satellite providers.
Of the cinema’s entire canon of milestone historic films, The Interview will have to be included for the circumstances surrounding its release, its online gross, and the fact that, in spite of all of that, has plenty of dick and Lord of the Rings jokes.
The Interview Expands to Cable and Satellite VOD and Gets a Red Band Trailer
The Interview did get released on Christmas day and is slowly making a roll out across various platforms with its massive VOD success. So, satellite and cable providers are now offering it up on their VOD services starting today (via Deadline) and it’ll be interesting to see how much money the film will continue to rake in from VOD alone.
A red band trailer was also uploaded today and you can clearly see how ridiculous it is that this movie, with all the expletives and sexual innuendos, caused an international incident.
It should be noted that anything resulting from the release of the movie by the Sony hackers has yet to happen if anything was going to happen at all.
“The Interview” Available on VOD on YouTube Right Now UPDATE: Also Available on Google Play and Xbox Video
You now don’t have to be near one of few hundred independent/art house theaters to go see it tomorrow, though you should go do that if you can. You can stand for the freedom of expression from foreign oppressors from the comfort of your own home. It’s the way that many Americans prefer to stand up for their rights these days.
Go watch Seth Rogen, James Franco, Lizzy Caplan, and Randall Park satirize the North Korean regime right now, right here.
