In order to reach the masses, Sony decided to partner with Xbox Video, YouTube, and Google Play in conjunction with its own SeeTheInterview.com site on streaming the feature into the homes of potential viewers.
As far as pricing goes, you can rent The Interview for $5.99, or buy it for $14.99. Will you be watching?
The long-awaited trailer for Thor: The Dark World is finally here, offering a look at the main characters in the film, like Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston.) Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
Just as Marvels “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Who needs method acting when you have YouTube?
Denzel Washington and Aaron Paul both recently admitted to learning how to play alcoholics for their latest films - Flight and Smashed, respectively - from watching drunks on YouTube.
"You can YouTube 'drunks.' There are thousands. They are amazing," Washington, 57, said. His favorite video is of "this one guy that's trying to open a door and it takes about a half hour."
Paul also heralded the video site for its collection of inebriated individuals' humorous actions caught on tape: "I watched so many funny videos. There are so many. Just type in 'drunk people' or 'people drunk,' and you'll find some gems. There are amazing videos on YouTube that only have like 400 views. I'm just shocked that the entire planet hasn't seen them yet."

Tired of snippets? Bored with small clips, when you want the whole show? YouTube will soon team up with MGM to offer full-length movies and TV shows through the video-sharing site.
At the start of this partnership, YouTubers will have the chance to watch original American Gladiators episodes in a single channel, while another channel will offer the films Bulletproof Monk and The Magnificent Seven. Clips from other movies, including Legally Blonde, will also be available.
Still not excited? Everything that’s offered will still be free! Ads will run alongside the videos to make up for this lack of pay-to-watch fees. Last month, YouTube worked out similar partnerships so the site could start airing full-length episodes of Star Trek and Beverly Hills, 90210.

As everyone and their mother rushed to the theaters to see Iron Man this weekend, they were in for quite a surprise as the latest teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Batman series played prior to the film.
Ever since the first screenings of Iron Man, bootleg versions of the trailer have appeared on YouTube; The Dark Knight team seems to have wanted to nip that in the butt quickly, as they ended up posting it on their official site this past weekend, which you can see after the jump.
Although the campaign for the film has bombarded us with clips and images of Heath Ledger‘s character, Joker, very little has been spoken of Aaron Eckhart‘s Harvey Dent, who ultimately becomes Two-Face. That is, of course, until this trailer, where if you look close enough, you’re able to see the scars on the side of his face when he’s holding up the gun.
Folks over at Warner Bros. just continue to keep us entertained, as they had just released new teaser posters a mere couple weeks ago (which can be viewed at Omelete). The film is set to be released in theaters July 18, 2008.

In a straight-to-YouTube video, Jim Carrey has created a public service announcement for the Human Rights Action Center and the US Campaign for Burma. Carrey called for the release of the Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, a man confined by the Burmese government, calling Aung San an “unsung hero.” Suu Kyi received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for his efforts in Burma, which opposed an oppressive governing regime. The video shows the serious, compassionate side of Carrey, one that rarely comes out in his frantic film roles.
