Sony Expects to Break Even on ‘The Interview’

Updated on

“The Interview,” the comedy that Sony Pictures temporarily pulled from theaters, is doing well enough from online sales and rentals to recoup the millions of dollars spent on the film, a person close to the studio said.

Most of the $36 million in sales through Jan. 6 have come online. The studio, part of Tokyo-based Sony Corp., keeps 70 percent to 80 percent of those purchases, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing private financial data.
