"THE INTERVIEW" RELEASE CANCELED
NEW YORK (AP) -- In the showdown over "The Interview," Sony has blinked. The studio has taken the unprecedented step of pulling the comedy from theaters -- a little more than a week before it was supposed to make its debut. The move was made in the wave of a huge data hack at the studio and threats from the hackers that there'd be 9/11 type attacks at theaters that show it. The U.S. government says it has traced the hacking attack to North Korea. The movie depicts a planned assassination attempt against that country's communist leader. As the threat of a possible attack continued, Sony told theater chains they would allow them to pass on showing the film. And yesterday, as a number of chains decided to take Sony's hint, the studio announced it was pulling the release.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports the move to shelve "The Interview" caps a challenging period for executives at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
THE INTERVIEW - FUTURE?
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It has never happened before. Now Sony gets to write the book on what to do with a feature release that never makes it into theaters. Given the circumstances under which "The Interview" was pulled, the studio isn't saying much about its plans for the film. There's talk that Sony may find an outlet for the movie through video-on-demand. In the past, studios have been reluctant to send big-time movies directly to the VOD pipeline, because theaters would be cut out of the mix. Sony would lose tens of millions by not releasing the film to theaters. The film had a budget of about $40 million -- and it was expected to recoup about 75 percent of that with its first weekend in theaters.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It seems everyone has something to say about Sony's decision to pull the plug on "The Interview." Director Michael Moore expressed his dissatisfaction online. In a tweet addressed to the "Sony Hackers," Moore says: "Now that u run Hollywood, I'd also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers. Also, Sony Hackers - I really liked Tyler Perry in "Gone Girl" so hold off on doing anything yet with Madea." Donald Trump denounced Sony execs as having "absolutely no courage or guts." Steve Carell calls it a "sad day for creative expression." Late night comedy show host Jimmy Kimmel describes the pulling of "The Interview" as "an un-American act of cowardice that validates terrorist actions and sets a terrifying precedent." And Judd Apatow predicts the pulling "only guarantees that this movie will be seen by more people on Earth than it would have before. Legally or illegally all will see it."
NEW YORK (AP) -- Some say Sony was cowardly to cave in to pressure. Others wonder why the studio would even make the movie in the first place. Just some of the reaction on the street to the news that "The Interview" is being pulled from movie screens because of threats made by a hacker group. Mousa Jatta says as far as the hackers go, she is "pretty sure they won" the showdown. But Sharon Watts says if they movie was going to be released, she "would take the chance" and go. Rudy Breedy questioned the very making of the movie, noting "if another country or place had made a movie about this similar plot of killing the President of the United States we'd all be upset."
In New York, movie-goer Mousa Jaffa says with the cancellation of "The Interview," the Sony hackers got what they wanted.

REALITY TV STAR WILL HADEN INDICTED ON RAPE CHARGES
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- One of the stars of "Sons of Guns" is facing some serious legal trouble. A grand jury in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, has indicted Will Hayden on three counts of rape.
