Hackers turned ‘The Interview’ into Sony’s biggest online release of all time

Hackers hit Sony Pictures in late November, looking to disable the company’s daily operations and convince the movie studio to stop its planned release of The Interview, a movie that has been strongly criticized by North Korea ever since being announced. Sony initially agreed to their demands, pulling the film from theaters a few days before its Christmas Day launch. But the company changed its mind after receiving harsh criticism from President Obama and several big names in the movie industry, releasing the movie in select cinemas and online with help from Microsoft and Google.

Sony hackers’ worst nightmare: ‘The Interview’ is the most popular video on YouTube

Sony hackers’ worst nightmare: ‘The Interview’ is the most popular video on YouTube

Sony Pictures Entertainment’s “The Interview” went from being just another mediocre comedy to being the most talked-about movie of 2014, and it’s all thanks to hackers’ efforts to prevent the movie’s release.

That conclusion is now in question despite the fact that the FBI and President Obama have publicly pinned the cyberattack on North Korea, but the hackers had still demanded that The Interview be shelved if Sony hoped to prevent further data from being released. After initially caving, Sony decided to go ahead with the movie’s release anyway — and now it looks like the Sony hackers’ worst nightmare has come true. More →
