Why Are Studios Deleting Finished Movies?

Let’s talk about the atrocious phenomenon in Hollywood where a studio will fund a movie, write, direct, and edit it, and then delete the entire thing, erasing all of the work put into the project and spitting in the faces of those who contributed.  I hate this.
