Odds ‘high’ that Sony will air ‘The Interview’ in some form

Adriene Hill sat down with Wesley Morris, a film critic for the pop culture blog Grantland, to talk about the state of the film industry this holiday season.

Morris says he has plenty of choices at the movie theater this winter, but he’s not interested in any of them.

“I’ve been calling it ‘Dumpcember’ … you’ve got maybe 30 movies just dropped into the end of the year to qualify for awards,” Morris says.

And then there’s the Sony hack problem. Theaters won’t profit from “The Interview” any time soon, but will Sony?

“Odds seem very high that video on demand or some streaming platform will be the primary way to see this movie,” Morris says.
