The Interview and Cynicism

If you've been following all this business with The Interview, it sounds like Sony has "relented" and will be releasing the film on Christmas Day after all, in limited release.

I don't doubt that the hacking and the threats were real. I do doubt that the government of North Korea has the resources to make such a threat credible, certainly not in the United States with everyone on alert. And the cynical side of me has to wonder whether Sony always intended to release the film anyway, but played up the threats and free speech angles to line up audience for a film that they were afraid was going to tank.

Just a sneaking suspicion. (I wasn't going to see it anyway, I am pretty much the opposite of a Seth Rogen fan.) I suppose we may never know either way.
