Tuesday night’s world premiere of “Blade Runner 2049” has been scaled back due to the Las Vegas mass shooting.
The event will take place tomorrow without a red carpet at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
“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.
The reboot, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, who reprises his role of Rick Deckard from the original. Early box office forecasts had projected a domestic launch of at least $40 million.
