‘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.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
