In the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Open Road Films has cancelled the red carpet premiere it had planned to hold Monday night for its new movie Marshall, Reginald Hudlin’s film about the young Thurgood Marshall starring Chadwick Boseman.
The premiere was set to take place at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, but citing “this day of national mourning,” the event’s organizers have decided to forego any press coverage and instead have turned the event into a private screening.
