New Movies (This Week): ‘American Sniper,’ ‘Big Eyes,’ ‘The Interview,’ ‘Into The Woods,’ ‘Selma’ and ‘Unbroken’ [Video]

This is the week when "The Interview" was going to be released, but some hackers infiltrated Sony Pictures Entertainment's computers, made some threats and got the farce about an assassination plot against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by two American journalists -- starring Seth Rogen and James Franco -- canceled.

Well, actually, Sony Pictures Entertainment now says it is going to release "The Interview" in limited theatrical release on Dec. 25. Whatever.

Either way, there are still plenty of other films coming out on Christmas Day (Thursday): about a Navy S.E.A.L. sniper, a painter who ran into legal troubles and rediscovered herself, a witch involved with characters from children's stories, the civil rights marches of the 1960s and a U.S. Olympian captured by the Japanese during World War II

The odd couple is one of the basic principles of comedy. You take two very different people, fling them into an absurd situation and (hopefully) rack up some good laughs. The ‘Get Hard’ trailer shows off one of the more inspired comedic pairings in recent memory, with the tall whiter-than-white Will Ferrell teaming up with the short black Kevin Hart. If the differences between two lead actors generated laughs on their own, then this is already the funniest movie of 2015.

‘The Interview’: Full List of Theaters Screening the Controversial Comedy on Christmas Day

Earlier today it was announced that Sony will release ‘The Interview’ in select theaters and on VOD this Christmas Day after all.

In a wonderful turn of events, following a petition from Art House Convergence, which was signed by many independent exhibitors, Sony is moving forward with the release. We have the full list of theaters that will screen the film this Thursday.
