Twentieth Century Fox has canceled the New York premiere of its spy sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle in support of the star-studded Hurricane Harvey relief telethon airing across all the major networks next week.
“Given the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and the important fundraising efforts happening on Sept. 12, we have canceled that evening’s planned New York film premiere event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” a studio spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday. “To that end, Twentieth Century Fox Film will be donating the money budgeted for the premiere to several of the non-profit groups associated with the telethon.”
The Golden Circle, which is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Channing Tatum, will still hold an international premiere in London on Sept. 18. The movie opens Sept. 22 in the U.S.
George Clooney, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, and Julia Roberts are among the celebrities set to participate in Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey, which will air on CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, and CMT. The telethon will also stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
