In this Thursday, Dec. 25, 2014 photo, a shopper walks by Sony's Bravia flat panel TV sets on display at a Tokyo electronics store in Tokyo. Sony’s iconic gadgetry and the star appeal of Hollywood may have appeared to be a perfect match when the electronics giant bought Columbia Pictures in 1989. A quarter century later, it’s apparent that Sony Corp. has not attained the magic synergy it was hoping for. The stolid silence of Sony’s Tokyo headquarters over the hoopla surrounding “The Interview” underscores the longstanding divide between the Japanese parent company and its U.S.-led and -run motion pictures subsidiary, successor to Columbia Pictures.
