‘The Interview’ Generated $15 Million Over Weekend

the-interview-movieSony has announced that its scandal hit movie ‘The Interview’ has been legally downloaded more than 2 million times and has so far generated sales worth $15 million.

Initially Sony had decided to pull the movie from theaters but later decided to release it on internet. The movie was made available at Xbox Video, YouTube, Google Play and SeeTheInterview.com, Sony’s own site on December 2014.

The movie has also been made available on iTunes by Apple on this Sunday.

It costs $5.99 to rent the movie and $14.99 if you want to own it. It has reported by sources within Sony that most of the downloads and rentals have been generated by YouTube and Google Play.

The movie, that was also simultaneously released on theaters, has earned a revenue of about $3 million from these theaters.

However, this should not mean that “The Interview” movie is a huge success because it has cost Sony more than $100 million.
