Tom Cruise's ‘Jack Reacher' premiere in Pittsburgh postponed



PITTSBURGH - The "Jack Reacher" premiere in Pittsburgh that was set for Saturday has been postponed.

Paramount Pictures released the following statement:

"Due to the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Conn., and out of honor and respect for the families of the victims whose lives were senselessly taken, we are postponing tomorrow's Pittsburgh premiere of 'Jack Reacher.' Our hearts go out to all those who lost loved ones."
