MANILA, Philippines – The Interview, the movie that became the talk of the town after it sparked an international incident, had social media users glued to Twitter Monday, December 29, as the stars and the director live-tweeted the movie. 

The film centers around a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. In the movie, the task from the CIA falls to two TV journalists played by Seth Rogen and James Franco, after James’ character is granted an interview with Kim Jong-Un.

There were plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits from the two directors, who talked about scenes that were challenging to film, actors who impressed them, and the celebrities who had small roles in the film, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rob Lowe, and Eminem.  

There’s also a bit of casting information:

Hackers’ cyber-attack on Sony, the studio which released The Interview, revealed a slew of company information, including actors’ salaries, email correspondence, and employees’ personal details. 

Guardians of Peace, the group that claimed responsibility for the cyber-attack, demanded that Sony not push through with the film’s Christmas Day release, saying that a “bitter fate”awaited any who attend the film.

In a move many protested as a violation of freedom of speech, Sony canceled the release of the film, but allowed distribution days later. The film can be seen in selected movie theaters as well as via streaming outlets online. – Rappler.com
