Few movies has had a stranger premiere than Sony’s “The Interview.” After being released online following a slew of hacks and unsubstantiated terrorist threats, there was one platform it was notoriously missing from: Netflix.
Fret no more. During its earnings call today, the streaming serviced announced “The Interview” would be released on its platform on Saturday, January 24. That sucks a bit if you already paid to watch the movie, but should surely please those with a subscription who have been on the fence about watching it so far.
Streaming will only be available in the US and Canada however. There is a theatrical release slated for February 6 in the UK.
