That’s right, ladies and gentlemen… it’s a Christmas miracle. After Sony Pictures Entertainment announced last week that it was cancelling the theatrical release of “The Interview” after hackers threatened Sony employees and moviegoers, the company had a change of heart. On Tuesday, Sony confirmed that the movie would get a limited theatrical release on Christmas Day. And then on Wednesday, Sony ended up releasing The Interview online for rental and purchase.
Now, the film’s stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have responded to the movie’s release (warning, NSFW).
Here’s Rogen’s response in two tweets:
You wanna watch The Interview?? You can RIGHT FUCKING NOW!! Go to http://t.co/IRhW7juZWn. Thanks Sony for making it happen. Booyah.

And here’s Franco’s response on Instagram:
