The controversy with this movie has been continuing for long but the incident took place when Sony’s website was hacked by a group of hackers called “Guardian of peace”.

The movie revolves round the terrorism of North Korea and so it was rumored that the hacker group has emerged from North Korea. With help from FBI, the company could figure out the group from North Korea.

The controversy took an ugly shape when the theaters refused to release the movie forcing Sony to cancel the release. Barack Obama, President of US, stated that Sony made a mistake by not informing the government. Finally Sony has announced to release without paying heed to the hackers. Moreover Sony has stated that it will release the movie with only those theaters which are interested to show it.

Now that the movie is on the verge of release, it can be said that all these controversies have contributed in intriguing the audience and promoted the movie without much promotion.

    Interesting article. I love action movies and I can’t wait to see this movie when it hit my country especially seeing that it’s quite a controversial movie. I wouldn’t want another country to make a movie about assassinating my president. That wouldn’t be fun!

    I hope this decision by Sony to go ahead with the release of the movie won’t prompt South Korea to retaliate by attacking Sony and its host country.
