Is Sony Picture's action to cancel the release of "The Interview" a capitulation to cyber-threats


or a protection of film-goers and workers from harm? Would you have chosen a different action?

    Thanks much for your opinions and insights. Releasing/making a film with assassinating a real head of state, especially one who seems very aggressive seems like proverbially shouting "FIRE" in a crowded theater, when it comes to ?'s of 1st Amendment.

    George Clooney has just agreed with you in an interview. He says first a movie, then all sorts of businesses could be threatened and concede. Bad news, eh? Good to see you.

    And look at this: Steve Carell told USA TODAY's Andrea Mandell on 12/18 that his new movie set in NK, "Pyongyang", is being scrapped (because of the threats to Sony).

    I am grateful an attack of movie theaters was avoided, but sorry that North Korea seems to have won a victory. Anyway, hundreds of theaters refused to show the film, so Sony may have had little choice. Not sure.

    I've never heard of that film. With a box office take of only $869,300 USD in 2006 or just $1,018,344 in today's US dollars, it was seen by only about 102,000 people. Sounds like it was ignored by left and right.

    A lot of income was lost over this decision, for sure. Some of us reviewers lost a day of work, but that's tiny in view of the multiple millions lost and still owed on the picture. Sony could go bankrupt, followed by others. Thanks!
