Paramount Pictures and Skydance have canceled Monday night’s premiere of “Terminator: Dark Fate” in the wake of fires blazing through the west side of Los Angeles.
“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,'” a spokesperson for Paramount said in a statement. “We will be donating food intended for the after-party to the American Red Cross, which is serving those affected by the fires.”
Southern California is facing another wildfire crisis as a fire burned in the early hours of Monday night in the Sepulveda Pass west of the 405 freeway, near the Getty Center museum.
The fire was described by the LAFD as creating “a very dynamic situation due to high winds,” with officials issuing mandatory evacuation orders that impacted more than 10,000 structures (both residential and commercial) in western Los Angeles County.
By 5 a.m. Monday, the Getty Fire had spread to over 400 acres and prompted the closure of all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District.
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who stars in the new “Terminator” film, are among the thousands of people forced to evacuate their homes.
