Sony’s comedy “The Interview,” to which the North Korean government has taken offense, is coming to Netflix this week.
Netflix has announced “that, starting on Saturday, the scandalous Seth Rogen comedy will be available to its subscribers in the United States and Canada,” reports CNN Money.
The article continues, “The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it gives Sony another revenue stream as the studio aims to break even with the movie,” which cost approximately $44 million.
The story notes that “in little less than a month, the film has hauled in $40 million through on-demand rentals and another $6 million in theaters.
“The Interview” will be available, in the U.S., on DVD and Blu-Ray on Feb. 17, 2015, the story noted.
The story concerns an assassination attempt on the life of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. After threats from the North Korean government, most theaters declined to show the film and Sony, initially, announced that “The Interview” would be shelved.
