It seems that Sony is sufficiently concerned about whether Kathryn Bigelow’s much-more-hotly-anticipated-as-of-April movie Kill bin Laden could swing the 2012 election that they’re considering moving its release date as far back as 2013. This strikes me as somewhat silly. Whether or not there is a Hollywood movie about it, or many Hollywood movies about it, as the case may be, released in any proximity to the election, the fact remains that President Obama gave the order to have Osama bin Laden killed. I’m reasonably certain we will be reminded of that fact through other media, perhaps including paid campaign advertisements.
Does Sony Really Believe Kathryn Bigelow’s Bin Laden Movie Would Influence The Election?
