THUMBS UP: Obama applauds Sony Pictures' decision to screen The Interview.

WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama is pleased Sony has decided to release The Interview in some theatres, after earlier bowing to pressure from a cyber attack blamed on North Korea, the White House said.

"The president applauds Sony's decision to authorise screenings of the film," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement.

"As the President made clear, we are a country that believes in free speech, and the right of artistic expression. The decision made by Sony and participating theatres allows people to make their own choices about the film, and we welcome that outcome," Schultz said. — Reuters
