Sony may have taken down posters and clips, but now that the December 25th release of The Interview is back on, it’s time to get back to promoting the film. The Interview won’t get a wide release as originally planned, but it’s being reported that more than 300 theaters have agreed to screen the film even after all of these last minute changes.
After the AMC, Regal, Cinemark, Cineplex and Carmike theater chains all opted out of screening the film, Sony chose to cancel the theatrical release entirely. However, shortly after President Barack Obama dubbed the decision a big mistake, Sony announced that The Interview will get a limited theatrical release on Christmas Day.

Here’s the official synopsis of The Interview:
In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
