How did the movie, “The Interview” do?
FOX News Radio’s Bill Vitka reports:
The flash point comedy about killing the dictator of North Korea has done very well. “The Interview” was streamed or downloaded more than two million times, since it became available on Wednesday.
(Sound clip from “The Interview”): “Take him out. // You want us to kill the leader of North Korea? // Yes.”
“The Interview” has now been rented or bought online to the tune more than $15 million according to Sony. That number would place it in the top 10 at the box office — but in movie theaters — the film may be more of a curiosity than a phenomenon, earning a modest $2.8 million.
But, in the digital realm — Sony says “The Interview” has eclipsed everything else the studio has ever done.
