索尼送圣诞大礼!全球网民可线上观看《刺杀金正恩》


被一些西方媒体称为今年圣诞节“最好的礼物”——电影《刺杀金正恩》就要来了。

据路透社消息,索尼影视颇具争议的喜剧电影《刺杀金正恩》(The Interview)将于美国东部时间12月25日下午1点揭开神秘面纱。届时,全球用户可以在Google Play、YouTube、微软视频游戏机Xbox,以及名为seetheInterview.com的专设网站上收看该影片。
 
根据索尼影业的资料,该影片的网上出租和出售价格分别为5.99美元和14.99美元。

Sony Pictures has just released its plans for a VOD release of The Interview — and it begins today. After reviving the pic’s Christmas Day release yesterday and signing on more than 300 indie theaters who pledged to show the comedy starting Thursday, Sony has confirmed that the movie will be available for streaming rental in HD beginning at 10 AM PT on Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft’s Xbox Video and the dedicated website seetheinterview.com for $5.99. The film can also be purchased in HD for $14.99.

“It has always been Sony’s intention to have a national platform on which to release this film,” Sony Entertainment Chairman Michael Lynton said in the announcement. “With that in mind, we reached out to Google, Microsoft and other partners last Wednesday, December 17th, when it became clear our initial release plans were not possible. We are pleased we can now join with our partners to offer the film nationwide today.”

A streaming/VOD plan was the other shoe to drop from yesterday, when Sony reached a deal with indie cinema houses to show the controversial political comedy, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as a talk show producer and host who are enlisted to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong-un. Lynton said that in addition to the theatrical rollout beginning tomorrow, Sony was “continuing our efforts to secure more platforms.”

Reports began emerging this morning that streaming deals were coming. In addition to today’s announcement, sources say Netflix also is in talks to stream the movie as early as January.

In a blog post today, Google’s David Drummond, SVP Corporate Development and Chief Legal Officer, wrote about his company’s part in the streaming rollout. “Last Wednesday Sony began contacting a number of companies, including Google, to ask if we’d be able to make their movie, The Interview, available online,” he wrote. “We’d had a similar thought and were eager to help — though given everything that’s happened, the security implications were very much at the front of our minds.

“Of course it was tempting to hope that something else would happen to ensure this movie saw the light of day. But after discussing all the issues, Sony and Google agreed that we could not sit on the sidelines and allow a handful of people to determine the limits of free speech in another country (however silly the content might be).”

The idea of a VOD did not sit well in exhibition circles, with some indie venues originally all-in to screen the movie deciding to back out when they learned of Sony’s day-and-date plan. Rory Bruer, Sony Pictures President of Worldwide Distribution, last night disputed a Deadline report saying exhibitors were upset over Sony’s handling of The Interview release, saying relations with exhibitors that are part of NATO and independents have not been damaged by the radically changing situation.

Here are details about how to watch the movie on the platforms, via Sony.

·Google Play: the movie is available to buy or rent at play.google.com, and can be watched in the Play Movies & TV app on Android and iOS phones or tablets, or streamed in the living room via Chromecast, Roku or the Nexus Player.

· YouTube: the movie is available at youtube.com/movies and can be watched on the web, in the YouTube app, or on select living room devices like Chromecast, Apple TV, PlayStation and Xbox.

· Microsoft’s Xbox Video: the movie is available to buy or rent on the Xbox Video app on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and XboxVideo.com.

 · SeeTheInterview.com: In addition, The Interview is available at the dedicated website http://www.seetheinterview.com, which is sponsored by Sony Pictures and powered by Kernel and with payments through Stripe, a secure payment platform.

When Sony announced its multiplatform intentions yesterday, nobody from the usual streaming suspects including Amazon, Netflix and iTunes was talking. In Europe, French powerhouse Wild Bunch, which has its own VOD platform in the country, responded to a question about whether it would show the film via VOD like this: “OUI!” It added, “We’d love to, but don’t think we’ll have access. We’ll see…”
