Blade Runner 2049: World Premiere without Red Carpet

Tuesday night’s world premiere of “Blade Runner 2049″ has been scaled back due to the Las Vegas mass shooting, the worst in US history.

The event will take place tomorrow without a red carpet at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

“In light of the tragic events of last night, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, and Alcon Entertainment are canceling the red carpet for tomorrow’s screening of ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Warner said in a statement on Monday. “We join the rest of the country in sending heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all those affected by this tragedy.”
The move came a few hours after Open Road Film cancelled Monday premiere of “Marshall” at the TCL Chinese for the same reason. A gunman opened fire on attendees of the Route 91 Harvest music festival near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

“Blade Runner 2049” is the sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic “Blade Runner.” Reviews have been mostly laudatory for the film, which is being distributed domestically by Warner Bros. through its output deal with Alcon Entertainment. Sony is the international distributor and production partner with Alcon Entertainment.
