(TNS) — Sony Pictures’
controversial comedy
“The Interview” began
its atypical release with
about $1 million in ticket
sales from 331 theaters
on Christmas Day, the
studio estimated.
The film, starring Seth
Rogen and James Franco,
also was made available
through video-on-demand
platforms starting Wednesday. The studio released
the movie through digital
rentals and purchases.
Sales figures for the
on-demand video market
were not available.
Some theaters across
the country hosted soldout showings as many
moviegoers trekked to the
cinemas out of a sense
of patriotism and support
for free speech after the
movie’s rocky ride.
The family of Clayton Meyers extend their
sincere appreciation to all who supported our
family during Clayton’s lengthy stay at Hays Med
and KU Med Center.
Thank you for the powerful prayers, masses, visits,
calls, messages, cards, gifts and flowers.
God Bless each and all of you.
