There still may be hope for The Interview. One day after Sony Pictures pulled the film's theatrical release date following a 9/11-like threat, the company posted a new trailer for the Seth Rogen and James Franco film.
"This Christmas," the clip says. "In Franco and Rogen we trust."
Sony announced on Wednesday, Dec. 17, that it would not go forward with the comedy's Dec. 25 release date after several exhibitors decided to pull the film from theaters. That same day, the New York Times reported that U.S officials had linked North Korea to the Sony hacking.
Several Hollywood A-listers slammed Sony's decision to can the project, including Rogen and Franco's former Freaks and Geeks boss Judd Apatow, Jimmy Kimmel, Rob Lowe, Connie Britton, and Ben Stiller. Steve Carell's untitled, upcoming thriller set in North Korea was also cancelled.
Director Michael Moore, in particular, had some choice words about the situation. "Dear Sony Hackers: now that u run Hollywood, I'd also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers," he tweeted. "Received numerous threats before release of Fahrenheit9/11. We were warned not to show it. This deterred none of us from releasing it. #cave."
