This just went out from beleaguered Sony Pictures leaders Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal. Is it possible this will signal some peace and quiet, at least through the holiday? Now there is a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza wish.

Subject: A Thank You From Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal

We are happy to share some good news with all of you: Annie had a strong opening and grossed an estimated $16.3M at the box office this weekend. With the holiday season ahead of us, our remake of this classic is off to a great start and on-track to play well for weeks to come.

We want to thank everyone at Sony Pictures for working hard to make this opening a success and for your professionalism during this extremely difficult time. We couldn’t be more grateful.
It brings us great pride to be part of this company and see your strength and dedication.

Michael and Amy
