Paramount Cancels “Terminator: Dark Fate” Premiere Due to Getty Fire

The premiere of the latest film in the Terminator series, Terminator: Dark Fate has been canceled due to the ongoing Getty Wildfire, according to Variety. The fire, which broke out this morning around 1:30 a.m. along the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center, has burned more than 500 acres and caused evacuations in the area including one of the stars of the movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In a release from the studio, Paramount said that there were already plans in the works to put the food intended to be used at the post-premiere party to good use.

In light of the ongoing, active fires being battled in the area, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have canceled tonight’s Los Angeles premiere of Terminator: Dark Fate. We will be donating food intended for the after-party to the American Red Cross, which is serving those affected by the fires.

Over 10,000 homes and businesses are currently in the mandatory evacuation zone. NBA star LeBron James was also among those who had to evacuate with his family due to the fire.

The premiere was set to be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.  The film opens Friday and, in addition to Schwarzenegger in the starring role, features Linda Hamilton, star of the first two Terminator films, and Mackenzie Davis of the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire and Blade Runner: 2049.
