‘The Interview’ posters are on eBay … for hundreds

Sure, Sony canceled ‘The Interview,” but this is capitalism, people.

While you can’t buy a ticket to see the movie, you can buy advertising posters for the movie on eBay … for hundreds of dollars.

One seller is trying to turn a tidy profit on a 5-by-8 foot vinyl poster, listing it for $1,000. That’s with three zeroes. Last we looked, there were no bids (shocking) but a seller can dream.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
