The Interview has finally come to iTunes.

Per Macworld, Sony has brought the comedy, which features Seth Rogen and James Franco as journalists sent to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to the iTunes Store. The movie can be rented for US$6 or bought for US$15 in HD or SD.


The Interview was supposed to launch in movie theaters on Christmas Day. But then Sony was hacked, and the alleged hackers threatened violence against movie theaters that would show it, so the movie theaters backed down, and then Sony said it wouldn’t even release the movie. In the end, Sony changed its mind and released the movie after all, to a few movie theaters as well as YouTube, Google Play, and Xbox Video.

It’s unknown as to why Apple didn’t immediately get on board, reports stating that the company “was not interested.”

If you’ve seen The Interview and have any feedback to offer about the movie, please let us know in the comments.

And whether this was a genuine threat or a terrific marketing hoax, we may never know…
