The premiere of Tom Cruise's new action movie "Jack Reacher" has been postponed in Pittsburgh following the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school on Friday.
The shocking school massacre prompted movie producers to call off the Saturday night film premiere in Pittsburgh, where the majority of the blockbuster was filmed.
A statement issued by Paramount Pictures executives on Friday reads, "Due to the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, and out of honor and respect for the families of the victims whose lives were senselessly taken, we are postponing tomorrow's Pittsburgh premiere of 'Jack Reacher.' Our hearts go out to all those who lost loved ones."
Network producers at the Syfy channel pulled their planned Friday episode of supernatural drama "Haven" due to its violent content.
A spokesperson for Syfy told TheWrap.com, "[The] scheduled 10 p.m. episode of 'Haven' contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school. In light of today's tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it."
