In an interview with NBC’s Meet The Press, Sony lawyer David Boies has stated in regards to the release cancelation of The Interview:
“Sony only delayed this. Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed. It will be distributed. How it’s going to be distributed, I don’t think anybody knows quite yet. But it’s going to be distributed.”
Well, the major theater chains haven’t stepped up to the plate, but independent theaters and theater chains are more than willing to screen The Interview.
Cinefamily is doing a secret protest screening tonight, The Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas/Fort Worth was planning on a screening of Team America: World Police because they couldn’t show The Interview, and theaters in Canada are trying to organize a screening of The Interview if they can get a copy just as a few examples.
Obviously, Sony stands to, on paper, make less money than going with major theater chains. However, we think, at this point, Americans and those in support of free speech around the globe will pay to go see The Interview in droves even if they have to go to a dive bar with a projector.
