The Interview sets up around two men (Seth Rogen & James Franco) who work for a tabloid TV show get the chance to head over to North Korea to interview leader and fan of the show, Kim Jong Un. They accept, hoping this could be their big break into serious journalism, but before they leave, the CIA steps them and give them the task of assassinating Kim.
The film has made its way to almost every streaming website and digital video store in record time, most likely due to a shitload of controversy, including a hack of Sony’s e-mail account and a terrorist threat against the U.S. The threats initially caused Sony to scrap the release, but after backlash from unafraid, badass ‘Muricans and President Obama himself, Sony let the movie drop, and pulled no stops. The Interview premiered in theaters, on-demand, and digital video stores like iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
The comedy flick raked in $45 million at the box office, $40 million in digital sales, and now, a month after it’s Christmas Eve release, and will house itself in Netflix’s database on Saturday. It’s the perfect opportunity to gather the homies, sit back, and have some good ass laughs.
