Sony Pictures Entertainment announced Wednesday that it would continue its rollout of "The Interview" by adding new video-on-demand platforms, pay-per-view services and about 200 more theaters.
On Sunday, the studio reported that the Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg comedy collected $2.8 million in 331 independent movie theaters and more than $15 million online since its launch on Christmas Eve.
Amid criticism from President Obama, 1st Amendment activists, and moviegoers, Sony decided last week it would roll out the film to a limited number of theaters on Christmas Day.
The studio also announced that it would release the film on video-on-demand platforms including Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft's Xbox Video and a stand-alone website, http://www.seetheinterview.com starting on Christmas Eve.
The movie also was made available on iTunes on Sunday and on Vudu on Tuesday.
Rentals cost $5.99, while customers can pay $14.99 to buy the movie.
