The US premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie “Django Unchained” has been cancelled as a mark of respect for the victim’s of last week’s tragic shooting at a school in Newtown, Connecticut. The event will be replaced by a small screening for cast and crew, and their friends and families.
In a statement, the film’s distributor explained that "In this time of national mourning we have decided to forgo our scheduled event.” The film tells the story of a freed slave, played by Jamie Foxx, and contains a large amount of bloody violence. Tarantino has said that he’s tired of defending his use of violence in films, adding "It's a western. Give me a break."
Other films have had their premieres affected. Tom Cruise’s new movie “Jack Reacher” will be shown in a scaled down screening with no red carpet, though Cruise will introduce it. Billy Crystal’s new movie “Parental Guidance” has also called off its premiere. Will you see “Django Unchained” when it is released?
