US cinemas to show The Interview on Christmas day

Just a week after Sony had announced that their controversial new release, The Interview, would not be making it to US screens, a dramatic u-turn has seen cinemas in the States announce that they will be showing the movie on Christmas day. 

The plot and contents of the film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, is thought to have caused great offence in North Korea.

The nation has been linked to the hacking of Sony, which saw masses of confidential information released onto the internet and appeared to make the company think twice about releasing the film. 

Thompson believes that the controversy surrounding the movie will have only made film-fans want to see it even more.
