The Interview, would you donate?

I'm assuming must everyone here has followed what happened to Seth Rogen and James Franco's Sony produced The Interview. Now that it will not be released, if it was available for download with a donate button, would you donate our watch it for free?

Haven't heard anything about it till now. I probably would donate something to see it. I love most anything that pokes fun at political leaders.

As I assume this is a typo, is it

donate or watch for free
or something else?

I rarely see movies in the theater, and this isn't the kind of movie I'd normally go to see anyway, but after the hack attack I decided I would. I'm very disappointed that Sony and the theater chains caved in to intimidation.

I suspect that it will eventually be released on DVD/Blu Ray, and I'll be looking for it then.

I thought it did, because this could happen to a book as easily as it now did to a movie.

It could, but when it does is the time to post in "General Discussions". MR doesn't do movies .

Indeed. Salman Rushdie must still feel some unease that some true believer will carry out the fatwa against him.

That did actually result in some real violent actions, bombing of some bookstores in the US and the UK, one murder, and two attempted murders. It also greatly increased interest in the book and sales.

In the case of The Interview I would have not had any interest in it except for this. I'm not sure how it will ever be available if Sony does not release it in any way. Would I donate to be able to watch it? I don't know, who am I making a donation to? To Sony to recover money lost because they caved in to the blackmail? I just hope that the hackers are identified and prosecuted to the extent possible and any ties to “Little Kim” are exposed. It's sad that a major corporation allowed this to be the result.

I heard Seth Rogen promoting the movie on Real Time about a month ago. They were talking about how unusual it was to do a comedy about assassinating Kim Jong-un and using his real name, normally they do an obvious parody. He knew the risk they were taking but I hate to see Sony back down after the hacks and threats. Normally I would download and donate in protest but in this case... honestly the movie looked really bad.

Now if North Korea did a comedy about assassinating Stephen Harper, I'd watch it in a heart beat.

Jimmy Kimmel to Sony: 'Have some backbone

There was the movie Mohammad, Messenger of God in 1977 that caused some trouble as I recall hearing. In at least one theater the show was stopped mid film because of threats made. Of course they thought he (Mohammad) was being shown in the film and he wasn't. They used music to indicate his presence and had others repeat his words (according to Wikipedia) and if he had to be present the camera filled his place so as to show things from his point of view. I still think bowing to the wishes of terrorists sets a bad precedent though. "Give a mouse a cookie and he'll want a glass of milk" (Airforce One).
