BERLIN, January 22. /TASS/. A scandalous film — the Interview, about an attempt on the life of the North Korean leader, will be released on screens on the territory of Germany despite protests from Pyongyang, a spokeswoman for the Sony Pictures Entertainment company told TASS on Thursday.
This film will premiere on February 5; things will go on in a usual format — first, the film will be shown to the press, and later — to the audience. The situation is quite standard; there will be no exceptions, she said.
On Wednesday, a representative of the foreign ministry of North Korea demanded that the United States and Germany should not let The Interview being released on screens in the framework of the Berlin Film Festival.
The press service of the film festival assured TASS that the scandalous film would not run at the film festival. "But the film festival is opening on February 5, which coincides with the date the Sony Pictures had planned for the first night of The Interview. There is no link between the two facts," the press service said.
The film, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and qualified as a comedy, features two US journalists sent to North Korean to interview its leader Kim Jong-un. But before departure the two journalists got into a CIA trap and were given a key task in a planned assassination attempt on the North Korean leader.
The comedy, released on screens in the United States with restricted admission and on the Internet on December 25, 2014, triggered a big international scandal.
