After weeks of controversy, Sony pulled a “Christmas miracle” and released The Interview. It was available to watch at select theaters, but more importantly it was available to stream online the very same day. This was a big deal for the future of movie releases. How did it do?
Currently The Interview is the top video on YouTube’s “Popular Right Now” chart. YouTube was one of a few places that had the movie available for purchase ($15) or rental ($6). At the time of writing this article it has over 110,000 likes and 20,000 dislikes. YouTube doesn’t show view counts for movies.
