Despite recent controversy, The Interview is headed to select theaters.
The film, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, was originally slated to be released nationwide today, but was pulled after Sony and various theaters received anonymous threats from hackers. The hackers threatened 9/11-style attacks on any theater willing to show the film in which Franco and Rogen play to journalists tasked with killing Kim Jong-Un.
The films cancellation caused mass outrage from movie-goers, celebrities and even politicians; Even President Obama called the move a “mistake.”
Sony has since decided to release the film on various platforms and in select theaters. For those of you not celebrating today or just looking for an escape after a long, family-filled day, click here for a list of theaters showing the film.

Good news for Amanda Bynes.
According to TMZ the young star is off her medication and acting completely “normal.” Sources close to Bynes and her family say she’s off all medication, including Adderall, which she got a DUI for using before getting behind the wheel.

She’s said to be spending her time doing yoga, meditating and doing pilates – all of which are known to reduce stress, which doctors claim is essential for people suffering with mental disorders.
TMZ is also reporting that Bynes is planning to enroll at USC where she hopes to study psychology.
