NEWYORK: Sony Pictures “The Interview” has made more than $31 million from its online and on-demand release, according to the studio. Guardians of Tranquility’ hackers invoked the 9/11 attacks in their most chilling threat yet against Sony Pictures, admonishing the Hollywood studio not to relinquish a film which has vexed North Korea.
Here’s how much ‘The Interview’ is going to cost Sony promulgated digital figures Tuesday for the film spanning its first 11 days of relinquishment since debuting Dec. 24. Sony had aforetime verbalized the film made $15 million in its first four days online, so demand for the Seth Rogen comedy has remotely declined as Sony has integrated more platforms.
Still, the consequential total represents a sizable recoup for Sony after the film appeared dead. After hackers the FBI have verbally expressed are North Korean threatened violence in theaters exhibiting the film, North America’s top theater chains pulled out of exhibiting The Interview and Sony canceled its release entirely.
While the grosses will be divided with each distributor, Sony could potentially earn back the roughly $40 million endangerment budget for the comedy.
