Sony can't seem to make up it's mind about The Interview.

After Guardians of Peace hacked Sony emails and made terrorist threats to theaters and moviegoers set to screen the film, the studio announced they were canceling the Dec. 25 release, as well as the NYC premiere.

But today, they changed their minds, saying it'll get a limited release in theaters on Christmas Day as well as be available through video on demand.

"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," Sony's chairman and CEO said.

The movie's stars, James Franco and Seth Rogen, celebrated the news on social media.

VICTORY!!!!!!! The PEOPLE and THE PRESIDENT have spoken!!! SONY to release THE INTERVIEW in theaters on XMAS DAY!

In The Interview, James and Seth play a TV host and producer who are recruited to interview North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un for their show and assasinate him in the process. Although they originally denied any involvement, North Korea is now being blamed for the hacks and threats.
