The Interview Is Getting Remade, By Hustler, As A Porno

6 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Leave it to the porn industry to jump on some free publicity in the wake of a chaotic scandal. Hustler Video, the American pornographic film studio that has brought parody films on pop culture subjects ranging from The Simpsons to Avatar to Game of Thrones will now produce an adult-video spoof on the much-talked-about-but-still-unseen comedy, The Interview. The adult film, which will be entitled This Ain.t the Interview XXX, will follow the two civilians (played by Seth Rogen and James Franco in the original) as they are recruited to the CIA in order to assassinate North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. It.s still unclear what the pornographic story line will entail, but The Hollywood Reporter reports that Hustler founder and chairman Larry Flynt insisted: .If Kim Jong Un and his henchmen were upset before, wait till they see the movie we're going to make.. In the backlash that has »

President Barack Obama: Sony 'Made a Mistake'

19 December 2014 5:36 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

President Barack Obama weighed in on the Sony hacking scandal and the decision to cancel the release of The Interview during a press conference on Friday.

Sony Pictures pulled Seth Rogen and James Franco's movie about attempting to assassinate North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un after hackers who called themselves Guardians of Peace leaked embarrassing emails from top executives and producers, full-length movies and threatened Americans with 9/11-like attacks if they went to see the film. U.S. officials confirmed this week that North Korea was behind the cyber attack.

News: How the Sony Hack Could Affect Your Christmas

"Sony's a corporation. It suffered significant damage. There were threats against some of its employees," President Obama said. "I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake."

Obama said that he wished that Sony had spoken to him before the cancellation was made.

Sony’s Michael Lynton Says No VOD Distributor Will Show ‘The Interview’

19 December 2014 2:23 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Video on demand companies are declining to show “The Interview” after movie theaters pulled the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy from its original Dec. 25 release, Sony CEO Michael Lynton said on Friday.

“There has not been one major VOD or one major ecommerce site that has said they are willing to step forward and distribute this movie,” Lynton told CNN, presumably referring to streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

Why The Interview's withdrawal sets a worrying precedent

18 December 2014 11:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Sony announcing that it has "no plans" to release The Interview, we look at what it might mean for the future of filmmaking...

A few months ago, the unfolding furore surrounding Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview probably seemed quite funny.

The film, about a TV host (played by James Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are instructed by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, enraged the country's government. It was, North Korea's foreign ministry spokesman said, "an act of war."

"Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated," read a statement from a North Korean news agency. "If the Us administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken."

When the story emerged in June, Seth Rogen didn't seem particularly worried. »

Hollywood Reacts to Sony Canceling 'The Interview'

17 December 2014 6:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures gave in to demands today and pulled The Interview from theaters, after hackers threatened a 9-11-style attack on any theater showing the film. Despite the fact that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a statement stating there was no evidence of a terrorist plot against U.S. movie theaters that are screening The Interview, Sony gave theater owners the option to break contractual agreements and pull the film, most of which chose to do so. Later, Sony said they were choosing to cancel The Interview "in light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors to not show the film."

"Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale - »

Sony Cancels "The Interview"... What Now?

17 December 2014 6:49 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though the hacking of Sony Pictures has been dominating entertainment trade paper headlines for much of the past month, the past 36 hours has seen a flurry of activity culminating in the news a few hours ago that the studio is cancelling the Christmas release of its Seth Rogen and James Franco-led comedy "The Interview".

What really changed the game wasn't the original cyber-attack or the information that came out of it, but rather a threat by the hackers, a mysterious group called the 'Guardians of Peace', yesterday regarding the release of "The Interview". The threat suggested North American cinemas playing the film could be subjected to a potential terrorist attack.

The Department of Homeland Security weighed in on the matter a few hours later, saying it hadn't discovered evidence of an active plot against U.S. theaters planning to show the film. Even so, theater chains balked at the »

Sony Pictures Hastily Pulls TV Spots for ‘The Interview’

17 December 2014 2:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Sony Pictures tabled the scheduled Dec. 25 release of “The Interview,” the studio is said to be hastily pulling the remaining TV spots booked to promote the James Franco-Seth Rogen comedy.

The comedy has sparked outrage in North Korea and is believed to be the reason that Sony Pictures was the target of a massive »

Hello all, Manuel here with a number of Lgbt-related news to kick off your Monday.

- Let’s start with the pretty. Love these images of the Looking boys for their OUT100 spread. The magazine named the HBO series TV show of the year. HBO's been busy hosting their Artists Series where they invited some select lucky few to visit the set, keeping social media abreast of what the boys are up to. Check it out:  #LookingForPatrick #LookingForAgustin #LookingForDom

Oh and look, a teaser trailer for season 2!

- Speaking of HBO (1), they’re going ahead on the provocatively titled series Bros Before Hos which centers on a queer black man and well, his brothers. The show is from the team behind Red Tails and, more recently, Dear White People. The show, they state, aims to "reflect the growing diversity of the American experience." You can check out a rough cut »
