Seth Rogen took to Twitter Wednesday to announce that fans can watch his controversial new movie, The Interview, online now.
“You wanna watch The Interview?? You can RIGHT F***ING NOW!!” he tweeted. “Thanks Sony for making it happen. Booyah.”
Rogen shared a link with three options to screen the film - Google play, YouTube or Xbox Video.
“I need to say that a comedy is best viewed in a theater full of people, so if you can, I'd watch it like that. Or call some friends over,” he added.
His co-star James Franco also shared his excitement via Twitter and shared the same link.

The Interview was initially cancelled by Sony shortly after threats from hackers tied to North Korea implied their actions against moviegoers would be similar to the attacks of 9/11. The decision left Hollywood stunned and was even condemned by President Obama.
The company then reversed the decision, announcing Tuesday, that Franco and Rogen's comedy, which follows their characters on a CIA mission to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, will have "limited theatrical release."
"We have never given up on releasing The Interview and we're excited our movie will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day," Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton said in a statement. "At the same time, we are continuing our efforts to secure more platforms and more theaters so that this movie reaches the largest possible audience."
He continued, "I want to thank our talent on The Interview and our employees, who have worked tirelessly through the many challenges we have all faced over the last month. While we hope this is only the first step of the film's release, we are proud to make it available to the public and to have stood up to those who attempted to suppress free speech."
