Controversial comedy The Interview makes debut on Apple iTunes

The controversial movie The Interview has finally made its debut on iTunes which is available to rent for six dollars or buy for 15 dollars.

The controversial comedy that was released in independent cinemas in the U.S. on Christmas, has since been available on YouTube Movies, Google Play, Xbox and a dedicated Sony-built website, reported CNET.

Sony Pictures had initially cancelled the release of the movie following a cyberattack and threats to moviegoers.

The U.S. linked the cyber attack to North Korea after sensitive studio information was publicly released.

North Korea has denied involvement in the Sony hack and said that the movie that depicts a fictional plot to assassinate the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was insensitive.

However, Apple has not yet commented on the iTunes debut of the movie. (ANI)
