Actor David Oyelowo has told the BBC that he can understand why Sony has pulled the controversial film The Interview - but that it sets a "difficult precedent" for the industry.

Oyelowo was speaking to the BBC's Will Gompertz about his role as Martin Luther King in the film Selma.

He said that Christmas is such an important time for cinema chains that a threat would be a major concern.

Selma is released in UK cinemas on 6 February 2015.
