Twentieth Century FOX cancels 'Kingsman' premiere for hurricane relief

-

The New York premiere of Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been cancelled, and the reason is sure to make everyone love the best-dressed spies even more. 

A spokesperson for Twentieth Century Fox confirmed that the cancellation was due to “the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and the important fundraising efforts happening on Sept. 12.” 

Instead, The money budgeted for the premiere will go to “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief” which will air across all the major networks. The event will also be streamed live on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

The telethon will feature stars such as Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Beyonce, and many more as it raises money for victims in Texas, Louisiana, and those affected by Hurricane Irma. 

Proceeds will go to several non-profit groups associated with the telethon such as the United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief.
