    I applaud the delay in the premier, but in reality Cruise is a terrible choice to play Reacher. The character is supposed to be an imposing figure, 6 foot 5 inches and 250 lbs. Cruise is SHORT. He is also ex military, not exactly Cruise's profile. They really missed the mark with this one.

    I'm sorry, but this movie is getting more publicity from NOT opening, out of respect (?). I don't buy it. You can't buy publicity like this.

    Why continue making movies which permeate society with images of violence & destruction? Is this all Hollywood can come up with to call 'entertainment' ?

    It is going to be a good movie, and a money-making one. I approve and appreciate Paramount's decision.

    What a crass publicity stunt. If they thought the movie was going to make money, they'd open it no matter what. As it is, they knew it was going to flop and expose Cruise. So they use this tragedy to move it back to early 2013, which is where they originally planned to open it, away from strong competition. This movie, the studio and Cruise all suck.

    "Out of honor and respect" my a**. They just don't want the public to connect the dots. The real source of this senseless violence leads straight to the networks, movie studios, music & video games. Multi-media is the guilty party responsible for the deaths of those children.

    Agree. But ticket sales also maybe less and hollywood richness may not fit with this tragic event.

    Violence in movies and video games must have caused the Holocaust too, right? Or maybe movies were the reason we had the Inquisition....

    More truthfully, it's the ignorance of people like you who fail to look for the real reasons our society is so screwed up that these things actually occur.
