Paramount and Skydance Media have canceled tonight’s Los Angeles premiere of Terminator: Dark Fate due to the ongoing Getty Fire which broke out overnight in the Sepulveda Pass connecting West L.A. to the San Fernando Valley.
The premiere was to take place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Imax on Hollywood Boulevard, with an after-party at the Tropicana in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Paramount will be donating food intended for the after-party to the American Red Cross, which is serving those affected by the fires.
The movie opens this Friday, with previews starting at 7 PM on Halloween night, October 31. Dark Fate reteams Terminator producer James Cameron with stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton for the first time since the 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which Cameron also directed. Tim Miller directed Dark Fate. Cameron also has a story by credit.
