Hollywood halts movie releases in Russia over Ukraine invasion
Aljazeera says Warner Bros is halting the release of The Batman in Russia, just days before it was to open in theatres there, as Hollywood moved to cease distribution plans in the country following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
Warner Bros, the Walt Disney Co, and Sony Pictures said on Monday that they would “pause” the release of their films in Russia. Each studio has significant upcoming releases that had been set to debut internationally in the coming weeks.
The Batman, one of the year’s most anticipated films, launches Friday in North America and many overseas territories, including Russia.
