Sony makes "The Interview" available online

<p>Sony Pictures has made its comedy film “The Interview,” available to watch online.</p> <p>The company had originally cancelled the film’s release after a cyber attack and threats that cinemas which showed it would be targeted.</p> <p>Several hundred independent cinemas across the US are also now showing it.</p> <p>Robert Saucedo, from the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Houston described how the film had proved very popular. “We’ve got a lot of requests since the movie was pulled for us to be able to show it in some capacity, and so the interest is definitely there. A lot of our shows here in Houston are already sold out for Christmas Day and for the day after, so people want to see this movie,” he said.</p> <p>The plot centres around a plan to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.</p> <p>The <span class="caps">FBI</span> accused North Korea of being behind the cyberattack although the country has denied it.</p>
