Sony has canceled ‘The Interview.’ Here’s what it looks like when a movie is obliterated.

Sony Pictures Entertainment spent more than $40 million to make and market “The Interview.” Now, that work is being obliterated.

With the company canceling the film’s release and saying it has no plans to put it out in the future, the process of scrubbing the film from the public sphere has begun.

Head to Sony’s Web site, and you won’t see any mention of the film (unless you count this message to employees about Sony’s hacked network as a movie mention). Across the country, promotional posters and billboards are coming down, too.
