Nov 16, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris prompted changes in the plans for a number of high-profile film premieres. EW.com reports that Lionsgate scaled back plans for tonight’s Los Angeles premiere of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2,” while premieres were canceled for Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” and Natalie Portman’s “Jane Got a Gun.”

In a statement about tonight’s “Hunger Games” event, a rep for Lionsgate said: “Out of respect for the very recent events in Paris, we have decided to modify our red carpet and we will not conduct interviews at Monday’s ‘Mockingjay 2’ premiere. We will proceed with the rest of the event as planned in honor of the incredible fans who have always supported our films with such passion.”

The film is set to open Friday.

The planned Sunday premiere for “Bridge of Spies” was canceled, along with all press events that were to take place.

“Jane Got a Gun” had its premiere canceled along with all interviews. The premiere for the film, which is distributed by French company Mars Distribution, had been scheduled for tonight.
