<![CDATA[34 Things We Learned from the 2014 Sony Hack]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/things-we-learned-from-the-sony-hack/coy-jandreau

http://www.ranker.com/list/things-we-learned-from-the-sony-hack/coy-jandreau,

Terrorists Can Cancel Major Holiday Releases...
As of December 17th, it seems that The Interview won't be getting a theatrical release, at least not a very wide one, and not on December 25th (like originally planned), due to the hackers threatening a 9-11 like terrorist attack on any theater that shows the film. 

Regal Cinemas, Cinemark, Cineplex, and AMC Cinemas (4 out of the 5 major theatre chains) have all agreed NOT to release the film. They join Carmike, Arclight, Southern Theaters, B&B Cinemas, and several other smaller chains in boycotting the film. 

Even with the Department of Homeland Security stating that there is no credible evidence in the hackers threats, movie theaters still feel it's better safe than sorry.

Terrorists DO Threaten Just like Bond Villains
The hackers released a message stating:

 
"Warning

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places The Interview  
be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in  
terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures
Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony
Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY."

The Death Scene Was the Last Straw
After shooting many variations on the (spoiler alert?) Kim Jong Un death scene, Sony still kept demanding tamer and tamer versions until finally a neutered and defeated Seth Rogen and team settled on a very tame almost PG-13 death. This still wasn't enough and once North Korea even got wind of the scene existing the hacks began.

Rumor has it the original death was his face completely melting off  a la Indiana Jones. How great things could have been.

That's Racist
In a series of alleged Amy Pascal/Scott Rudin emails, the two try to guess what President Obama's favorite movies are. Guesses included Django Unchained12 Years a Slave, and Ride Along among others. Rudin even said in an email, "I bet he likes Kevin Hart."

Big Money
Sony was apparently approached with a $7 billion financing pitch on November 1st. The plan, laid out in emails, showed the unidentified investors (believed to be Saudi Princes) would commit to $6 billion of debt and equity financing for Sony Films in addition to $1 billion in Sony stock.

Spider-Man Is BACK at Marvel Studios?!
In co-chairman Amy Pascal's emails she discussed new plans for Sony's Spidey. One email reportedly referenced a Marvel Studios/Disney-produced trilogy, and another let loose that the comics giant wanted Spider-Man in its third Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War. One email said that Marvel eventually pulled out and that Sony is now going forward with its own plan. Another said Sony plans an animated comedy for the superhero; it would be produced by 22 Jump Street's Chris Miller and Phil Lord.  

However, other (unconfirmed) talks heated up after the hack stating that Marvel has taken control of the character again, perhaps even with Logan Lerman to star in the lead role.

Sony Can't Release a Movie without Distributors...
After four out five major theatre chains declined to show The Interview, Sony released the following statement on Wednesday, December 17th:

"In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.' 

"Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material,and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome."

Steve Jobs Is a Hard Movie to Make and Angelina Jolie Is a Brat
Information about Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs film was released in early December in the form of some acerbic emails. Gawker posted a string of correspondences, between Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, that purportedly details how Sony lost control of the project. The exchanges the site posted revealed almost a year's worth of incensed Hollywood hardball (including some Angelina Jolie bashing and Michael Fassbender penis appreciation). Even David Fincher got in on the fun with an Adam Driver slam.

Channing Tatum Is the Man
Who doesn't love Channing Tatum? Well now we know his emails are just as glorious as we imagined. In a correspondence with Sony and his fellow Jump Street cast and crew he sent out an email stating:  

"F YOU TED !!!! SECOND OF ALLLL TIMMMMME BEEEOTCH!!!! COME ON JUMPSTREETERS WE GOT CATE BLANCHETT WIT DIS BOX OFFICE BITCHES!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHA

How Awesome Fury and Other Upcoming Films Are
Soon after the hack was announced, awards season screeners for Fury, Annie, Still Alice, Mr. Turner, and To Write Love on Her Arms were all available (in DVD quality) on torrent sites. Variety said that within 24 hours Fury was downloaded over one million times.
