London — Universal Pictures has scrapped plans for the London premiere of Tom Cruise's The Mummy, the latest big, glitzy event cancelled following the terror attack in England.

In a statement, the studio says it was "devastated" by Monday's attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester: "Out of respect to those affected by this tragedy we have decided not to move forward with the London premiere."

That move comes a day after Warner Bros. scrapped its London premiere of Wonder Woman on 31 May. Stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Robin Wright had been scheduled to walk a red carpet.

Bands like Blondie and Take That cancelled shows in the immediate aftermath of the bombing, and Netflix scrapped a few screenings. Grande's concerts through 5 June have also been cancelled.
