Django Unchained Premiere Cancelled

317

Tomorrow’s red carpet premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has been cancelled out of respect for the victims of Friday’s tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
 
In a statement, a spokesperson for the Weinstein Company said “our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the tragedy in Newtown, CT and in this time of national mourning we have decided to forgo our scheduled event. However, we will be holding a private screening for the cast and crew and their friends and families.”
 
The L.A. premiere was to be held at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences with an afterparty at Skybar.
