It looks like you may get to see The Interview after all. After hacks, threats and more, Sony has decided to give The Interview a limited theatrical release on December 25th. Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Entertainment said: "We have never given up on releasing The Interview, and we're excited our movie will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day. At the same time, we are continuing our efforts to secure more platforms and more theaters so that this movie reaches the largest possible audience." So far two US theaters have confirmed that will be showing the film, Plaza Atlanta and Alamo Drafthouse. The New York Times reports that Sony is aiming for 200 to 300 smaller theaters. The Plaza will be showing The Interview from Christmas to New Year's Day, but it is unknown how wide the release will be.

Twitter had previously taken everything down about The Interview, however Sony reactivted its Twitter page today suggesting that Sony is fully behind the movie once again.

If reports by The Wrap are to be believed The Interview will only release on-demand on Christmas. Sony did not reveal this in a statement, however they did say they wanted to "secure more platforms".

Lynton added "we are proud to make it available to the public and to have stood up to those who attempted to suppress free speech."
