In the wake of Monday's deadly terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, Warner Bros. has announced it is canceling a planned premiere in London next week for its superhero film "Wonder Woman."
"Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent tragedy in the UK," the studio said in a statement. "In light of the current situation, we will not be proceeding with our plans for the premiere and junket activities in London."
Starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins, the highly anticipated film – which is set in Europe during World War I – will hold its U.S. premiere on Thursday in Los Angeles. It arrives in theaters June 2.
Courtesy of billionaire inventor/playboy Tony Stark, the suit is embedded with Iron Man-style technology. A Jarvis-like computer assistant informs Peter Parker (Tom Holland) of the "576 possible web shooter combinations" he has at his command. A parachute can also be deployed out of the back of the suit when needed, and the chest piece can detach and turn into a drone.
For those who prefer their Spidey old-school, though, the trailer also promises a return to Parker's teenage roots — though with a decidedly cockier spin than the shy, alienated high school nerd we've often seen depicted in the comics and onscreen.
Manchester Arena has postponed concerts by Take That, an English pop group from the city that was to play there Thursday, Friday and Saturday. But it's working to see that a KISS show proceeds next week.
"Unfortunately, due to the tragic events that unfolded on Monday night, it is not possible for the concerts to take place," the arena said in a statement. "These have now been postponed and more information will follow." In another statement, the arena cited the ongoing police investigation.
Take That had previously postponed a show at another location, saying Tuesday on its website, "Out of respect to all of the people and their families that were affected by the horrific incident last night at the Manchester Arena, we have decided to postpone our show tonight in Liverpool. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all."
The original "Top Gun" came out in 1986 and Cruise played a cocky Navy aviator hungry to be the best of the best when he enters the competitive Topgun program based at the Naval Air Station in Miramar, Calif.
After the news, late-night talk shows are television's most topical forum. We turn there for the satirical distance and perspective that might allow us to process the day and get to sleep – for laughs when laughter is appropriate, but also for a thoughtful response when events go beyond ordinary human folly to the terrible and unthinkable.
Monday's suicide bombing after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was on the minds of some late-night hosts Tuesday night.
"There's really nothing you can say that can approach the shock and the grief of the victims and their families," said Stephen Colbert on "Late Show," asking his audience to go online to hear what his CBS colleague James Corden, who follows him on "The Late Late Show," had to say the night before.
Lucian Grainge of Universal Music Group sent a company-wide memo Tuesday, calling it "a day of remembrance" of victims of the suicide attack in Manchester, England, and acknowledging that emotions were raw.
"[W]e grieve for all of those lost there, offering our deepest condolences to their families and loved ones," said the chief executive of UMG, parent company of Ariana Grande's recording label Republic, in a note obtained by Variety.
Twenty-two people, one only 8 years old, were killed Monday night and at least 59 were hurt when a bomb exploded as Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena was ending.
Ariana Grande reportedly returned home to Florida on Tuesday after the bombing outside her Manchester, England, concert that left 22 dead and at least 59 injured.
As they exited a private plane, Grande, her mom and her dog were met on the tarmac in Boca Raton, E! News said, by family members and rapper Mac Miller, whom the 23-year-old has been dating since last summer. Miller gave Grande a long hug and a kiss, a source told E!
"It was a very emotional reunion and they stood talking for a minute before getting into the car," the source said. "Ariana looked exhausted and like she didn't get much sleep."
