New York (CNNMoney) – "The Interview" banked $1 million at the box office on Christmas Day, and it could make a couple million more over the long holiday weekend.
"The audience reaction was fantastic - the limited release, in under 10% of the amount of theaters originally planned, featured numerous sellouts and a first-day gross over $1 million," Sony Pictures worldwide distribution president Rory Bruer said in a statement.
Bruer nodded to the "incredibly challenging circumstances" around the release and said "we are extremely grateful to the people all over the country who came out to experience 'The Interview' on the first day" it was in theaters.
The scandalous Seth Rogen comedy could potentially make a lot more money online, through $5.99 movie rentals and future sales to streaming services like Netflix.
