North Korea is comparing President Barack Obama to a "monkey" for urging Sony to release The Interview.
According to The Associated Press, the country's Kim Jong Un-led National Defense Commission released a statement saying, "Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest." The group also blamed Washington for outages saying, "The U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing tag."

Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
For Seth Rogen, seeing his film The Interview on a big screen was a Christmas miracle. So he showed his appreciation by dropping in on a Los Angeles-area screening, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
At the 12:35 a.m. Christmas-morning showing, Rogen and his co-writer and co-director Evan Goldberg surprised a sold-out crowd. "Thank you so f---ing much for coming," Rogen told them. "We thought this might not happen at all... It's super-f—ing-exciting. So we really wanted to say thank you. If it wasn't for theaters like this and for people like you guys, this literally would not be f—ing happening right now. So thank you."
