Update, 12/23/2014: Sony has confirmed the Christmas Day release of The Interview. 

It looks like The Interview may actually be released on Christmas Day!

Independent theaters in Texas and Atlanta are saying that they’ve received the go-ahead to show the film Thursday. 

The Dallas Morning News has more: “Sources familiar with this morning’s conference call say Sony is also going to make the movie available to theaters at a reduced rental rate, as well as put it on a streaming service (not yet named) and video on demand by no later than Christmas.”

This is fantastic news for America and for freedom of expression and blah blah blah blah. However, on the downside, it does mean we may actually have to see this stupid movie now.  Still, overall, fantastic news!

God bless America. God bless George Washington. God bless all the Founding Fathers. God bless Thomas Edison for inventing the movie camera. God bless Seth Rogen and James Franco. God bless Kim Jong Un…wait, don’t God bless Kim Jong Un.
