After all the dilly-dallying of Apple and other providers to offer the controversial movie “The Interview“, they finally caved in. Apple just released a statement confirming that they are making “The Interview” available on iTunes.

After all that hullabaloo about the movie that everyone should be able to watch without North Korea stripping viewers of their right to watch whatever they want, the question is now this: would you still want to watch “The Interview” after reading what other people have to say about it?
There’s some uncertainty about its success, even though it seems that financially, the movie is not doing badly.
