After staying mum on the hacking of their film department leading up to the release of James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s The Interview, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai has finally broken his silence.

At a press event at the International CES trade show in Las Vegas, Hiarai acknowledged that he would be “remiss” if he did not mention the controversy caused by the film. Billboard reports:

Hirai did not offer any new information about the hack, but said Monday evening that freedom of speech and expression are “very important” to Sony and its entertainment business. He went on to thank the telecommunications and Internet companies who helped with the release, and “most importantly the people who have gone out to see the movie in theaters or through various online venues.”

In an unprecedented move, Game of Thrones is hitting the big screen.

Fans of the show will be able to watch the last two episodes of season 4 in 150 theaters in IMAX format from January 23-29 and will also get the chance to watch the season 5 trailer of the show, which doesn’t premiere until April.

According to Just Jared:

“The cinematic brilliance and grand scope of the series is perfect for the IMAX format,” Pamela Levine, chief marketing officer at HBO, shared in a statement. “We are always looking to provide fans with new and exciting ways to experience the show and viewing two key episodes, along with the new trailer, on such an impressive platform makes for a great event.”

The trailer for season 2 of Being Mary Jane has finally been released and if it’s possible, season 2 looks like it will be even better than the first.

The trailer shows Mary Jane — played by newlywed Gabrielle Union — having some table talk with a bunch of friends. They discuss religion, the state of the black community, the economy, and once the drinks get flowing, Mary Jane lashes out on her brother and ish gets way too real.
