If Sony Pictures truly doesn't want to release "The Interview" into theaters, BitTorrent would be more than happy to help the studio share its controversial movie. BitTorrent says its BitTorrent Bundle service would be a legal method for the movie to be distributed, instead of releasing the film to online video sites and via pirated torrenting.




"Though we normally would not offer commentary during such a trying time for another company, the answer is yes," BitTorrent officials said in a statement. "BitTorrent Bundle is in fact the very best way for Sony to take back control of their film, to not acquiescence to terrorist threats, and to ensure a wide audience can view the film safely. It would also strike a strong note for free speech."


After Sony decided to pull the movie - a decision which it is second-guessing, while considering still releasing the movie - there has been a large amount of criticism. Pres. Obama said Sony made the wrong decision, while Hollywood actors also heavily criticized the decision.
