Universal Pictures has canceled the London premiere of The Mummy in the wake of the Manchester Arena bombing on Monday (May 22).
“All of us at Universal have been devastated by the terror attack in Manchester and continue to stand with the community and country as it recovers," the studio said Thursday (May 25). "Out of respect to those affected by this tragedy we have decided not to move forward with the London premiere for The Mummy scheduled to take place next week.”
