This is the first photo from the set of Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic, which finally started filming in January after being bounced from Sony to Universal—the reasons are complicated, but one of them involved a disagreement over which big-name actor should play the Apple founder. As you can see, the answer still hasn't been revealed.
The ongoing saga of North-Korea comedy The Interview—cancelled, un-cancelled, and finally released online—seemed to enter its final stages yesterday, when Sony announced that the film had grossed $15 million from online sales and rentals, to go along with $2.85 in box office revenue. This is being hailed as a success that might save film division head Amy Pascal's job. But in looking at Sony's own internal projections for the film, it's hard to reach that same conclusion.
If there was one thing that triggered the embarrassing and fascinating Sony email leak, it might have been their decision to go forward with killing North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in James Franco and Seth Rogen's The Interview in the most gory way allowable. Now, you can watch exactly why some think North Korea may have hacked Sony.
The prevailing (though likely wrong) theory behind Sony's recent hack-disaster is North Korean revenge, a national strike against the studio for its movie depiction of Kim Jong Un's assassination. And according to leaked emails obtained by Gawker, Sony executives were worried about the flick even before they got hacked.
James Franco and Seth Rogen have far more sexual chemistry on a motorcycle than Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will ever have; Family Guy mourned a loss last night; The Beastie Boys are going to fight for their right to not have their music used in commercials; and the sad Brittany Murphy saga carries on, as her mother releases an open letter today.
Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne have crappy neighbors; you can now go back to watching The Big Bang Theory but pretend you're only excited for football; and thank God, because the Labor Day box office was so crappy, One Direction almost took the top spot.
