Sony Pictures this week cancelled the release of “The Interview,” a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The cancellation was made because of threats to theaters that were scheduled to begin screening the film on Christmas Day. Those threats came from the group that has claimed responsibility for hacking into Sony Pictures' computer system.
So, as a public service — or disservice, depending on how you feel about the film — we’ll tell you what you’re missing. Listen here to a synopsis prepared by Abraham Riesman from our partners at Vulture.com.
