Following the lead of Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher premiere cancellation Friday night, the red carpet event for Bette Midler and Billy Crystal's flick Parental Guidance was also put on hold in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting that left 28 dead, including 20 grade school children.
20th Century Fox tells E! News: "In light of the horrific tragedy in Newtown, Conn., we are canceling the red carpet press event and the after party for the Parental Guidance premiere, scheduled today in downtown Los Angeles. The hearts of all involved with this film go out to the victims, their families, their community, and our entire nation in mourning."
The movie, which focuses on Bette and Billy playing a married couple who care for their grandchildren, is set to open in theaters on Christmas Day.
