Universal Pictures on Thursday (May 25) became the second Hollywood studio to cancel a London red carpet film premiere following the suicide bombing in Manchester that killed 22 people and caused Britain to raise its terrorism alert to critical.

The Mummy, an action adventure starring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe, was due to have a premiere in London featuring cast members on June 1.

“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,” Universal Pictures, a unit of Comcast, said in a statement.

“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,” it added.
