Hurricane Sandy postpones NY area filming for 'A Winter's Tale,' premiere of 'Anna Karenina'

With Hurricane Sandy inflicting a perfect storm of dramatic rain and wind, movie premieres and filming have screeched to a halt on parts of the East Coast.

New York area filming for Warner Bros. fantasy Winter’s Tale, starring Russell Crowe and Will Smith, and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, has been shut down for Monday and Tuesday, a studio spokesman confirmed to EW.

Focus Features also confirmed to EW that Tuesday’s New York City premiere of lush period drama Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley, has been postponed, and a future date is being considered. The film’s Los Angeles premiere is still set for Nov. 14.

Hurricane Sandy causes widespread movie theater closures

Along with shuttering Broadway and movie and TV productions, Hurricane Sandy has caused cinemas throughout the east coast to shut down. Major theater chains in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Delaware, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Boston, and Connecticut had all canceled screenings for at least Monday, though AMC Cinemas was reporting that it hoped to reopen by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

As Sandy began its approach this weekend, box office was down roughly 11 percent from the same weekend last year — though it is difficult to gauge how much the drop off was due to the storm.
