Premiere got cancelled in japan and Mexico
A man murdered a lot of people at a midnight showing the new Batman movie in America, so Warner Bros. is reacting by cancelling star-studded red carpet premiere events across the world. That includes the Tokyo premiere, which has been downgraded to a special screening:
Special screenings of the movie will go ahead in the Japanese and Mexican capitals but will not be attended by its stars.
Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Morgan Freeman were all due to attend the premieres.
‘Due to the tragic events in Aurora, Colorado, Warner Bros Pictures has cancelled the previously scheduled personal appearances by the cast and filmmakers in Mexico and Japan on behalf of The Dark Knight Rises,’ a statement released to E! Online said.
‘However, in an effort not to disappoint the dedicated fans of the film, we will proceed with our previously scheduled special screenings for invited guests and promotional winners.’
I am sure many Japanese fans were hoping for a chance to see their favorite Hollywood stars in person. It is very sad that one criminal’s ugly actions can prevent fans and actors from celebrating the movie’s international release.
