With Hurricane Sandy inflicting a perfect storm of dramatic rain and wind, movie premieres and filming have screeched to a halt on parts of the East Coast.

New York area filming for Warner Bros. fantasy Winter’s Tale, starring Russell Crowe and Will Smith, and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, has been shut down for Monday and Tuesday, a studio spokesman confirmed to EW.

Focus Features also confirmed to EW that Tuesday’s New York City premiere of lush period drama Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley, has been postponed, and a future date is being considered. The film’s Los Angeles premiere is still set for Nov. 14.
