Tragedy will sometimes force the alteration, postponement, or outright cancellation of a piece of entertainment. Whether these involve the participants, such as several cancelled reality shows, or outside forces intervening, it's often a scramble to put together new versions of a film, or find a new release date that honors what's happened, but still upholds the integrity of the art.

The September 11th attacks, in particular, had an effect on a number of films, TV series, and albums. Many were heavily edited or moved around on release schedules, and one film was cancelled altogether, due to it being set in the World Trade Center itself. Other works have been postponed due to shootings or news events, where it was judged that a little bit of human decency was more important than ratings or a good first weekend box office. In a few cases, a postponement essentially tanked a film, but other times it had no real effect.

Here are the movies and TV series that were edited, postponed, or outright cancelled when real life made it necessary.

The video game Grand Theft Auto III was delayed almost a month after its planned September, 2001 release to make last-minute changes.

The game was originally set in a city that resembled New York City. After 9/11, the colors of the game's police cars were changed from a blue-and-white NYPD design to a black-and-white LAPD design. A mission that referenced terrorists was completely removed and a flight path of a plane that went near skyscrapers was also altered.

When released in October, 2001, it went on to become the best-selling video game of that year.
