Sony has had a rough month. It has been a terrible time for the giant that was planning to reap great rewards with several movies in the month of December. Now that big time movie production veteran is falling apart at the seams. In the latest headlines the company has made a rather wise decide to cancel the Christmas release of the “The Interview” starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
Seth and James have appeared in a lot of skits and movies together. It is always a barrel of laughs when these two get together, but North Korea doesn’t seem to be laughing much at the punchlines centered around this movie. The story line – which is based around the comical attempt to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un – has set off multitude of problems for Sony. The company is still trying to find out who hacked into the Sony systems and retrieved movies and very personal information through emails.
Sony executive Amy Pascal made racially charged comments in emails that surfaced to the public. She may be endanger of losing her job behind all of this. There were also hacks on new movie releases. “Annie” and “Fury” were both hacked during the month of December, and millions of people have seen these movies before theaters released these films. Now the main film that started of this may never been seen at all. Everyone and their mother will be breaking their backs trying to watch this movie. A call to North American Spine is likely, but watch out if North Korea comes after you.
