Natalie Portman was scheduled to promote her upcoming film, Jane Got a Gun, in Paris on Sunday, ahead of its premiere on Monday. In light of the terrorist attacks in that city, both Sunday and Monday’s events have been cancelled. All French television appearances have been called off as well.
Jane Got a Gun is scheduled to open in France–ahead of the rest of the world–on November 25. It’s uncertain at this point if that date may now change.
