New York City Premiere of ‘Kingsman’ Canceled to Support Hurricane Relief
Fox studio said it will donate the money budgeted for movie's rollout to Harvey and Irma efforts.
Fox canceled the New York premiere of Kingsman: The Golden Circle because it was set for the same night as the hurricane relief telethon. Instead, the studio decided to donate the money budgeted for the Kingsman event to “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief,” reports Page Six.
The hour-long telethon will feature numerous A-list celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Beyoncé, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, and more. It is dedicated solely to raising money for the victims of the flooding and devastation in Texas and Louisiana due to Hurricane Harvey.
Organizers recently said that they are expanding the relief effort to include those now affected by Hurricane Irma, Page Six reports. At least 10 people have been reported dead and destruction from that latest hurricane is already widespread in the Caribbean Islands.
The film, starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, still plans on holding its London premiere on Sept. 18.
