This after the cyber hackers threatened attacks on venues showing the film.br/br/"At that point we had no choice but to not proceed with the release on the 25th of December," said Lynton.br/br/In the Lehigh Valley, Sony's decision to cancel the Christmas release of "The Interview" has people both relieved and disappointed.br/br/"We don't usually negotiate with terrorists, and that sounds like a terrorist thing so in my view I would have released it," said one Lehigh Valley resident.br/br/"There is always that percentage that something will happen to theater-goers, then what," said another Lehigh Valley resident.br/br/Lynton says while the movie will not be released on Christmas Day, the company is looking at alternative plans, perhaps even releasing it digitally in the future.br/br/"We have always had every desire for the American public to see this movie," said Lynton./pdiv class="feedflare" a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:yIl2AUoC8zA"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:bcOpcFrp8Mo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:V_sGLiPBpWU"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:F7zBnMyn0Lo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=EDyKsrKuqak:YYw_bd9mZ2o:qj6IDK7rITs"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"/img/a /divimg src="//feeds.feedburner.com/~r/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories/~4/EDyKsrKuqak" height="1" width="1" alt=""/
