Dev Patel's movie Hotel Mumbai has been pulled from New Zealand cinemas in the wake of the recent attacks at a mosque in Christchurch.
Starring the Oscar-nominated actor, along with Armie Hammer, Anupam Kher and Jason Isaacs in pivotal roles, Hotel Mumbai is based on the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks which left more than 160 people dead. It displays the story of Taj Hotel staff that risked their lives to keep the guests and other people safe during one of the darkest days for the financial capital of India.
According to a report by NZ Herald, Icon Film Distribution released a statement saying the film has been suspended from all the New Zealand theatres after the Christchurch mosque shootings. Aling with that, the promotional activities and advertising have been stopped for the movie directed by Australian filmmaker Anthony Maras.
"After consultation with local exhibition partners, the decision was made to suspend the filmout of respect for a country in mourning," the statement said.
50 people were killed in mass shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch.
Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face more charges.
a different take:
16 Mar: LiveTradingNews: New Zealand Shooter was a Left Wing Fascist
By S. Jack Heffernan Ph.D
Brenton Tarrant, the man who murdered 49 innocent people in Christchurch New Zealand was not a Right-Wing Conservative White Supremacists, he was in fact a Trump Hating Left Wing Fascist Pro-Union Environmentalist.
Thats not an opinion it is the fact as stated in his rambling Manifesto, a document that shows he was poorly educated and completely misguided by the only educational source he had, Media and Social Media...
No part of the manifesto sits along side the other unless it is viewed through the eyes of a Trump Hating Left Wing Fascist Pro-Union Environmentalist...
Here is the entire Manifesto, if you find yourself agreeing with any of it consider it in the light of the rest of the document...
Thanks. I posted this earlier:
Terrorist who attacked New Zealand mosque said China is closest to his political and social values
You might want to add one additional identifier....he was a gamer. There’s also a suggestion out there (without much fact attached to it yet), that he was also on some type of legit mode-enhancement drugs (anti-anxiety medication). Both are factors in a large assortment of mass shootings over the past twenty years.
Is it really a good idea to erase documentaries about what happened in Mumbai?
They are erasing Muslim atrocities.
It does not mention even once that the Mumbai terrorists were Muslims!
New Zealand cinemas run 11year old films?
I did a search as well and
It certainly is Not a New film.
It’s on my “Getting” list now!
But if you belong to a white nationalist group, it’s all through the article.
US release date March 22 2019.
Oh. Misread the attack date for the movie date.
In any event, it’s always nice to have your government decide what movies you should see.
Can’t find nothing about a NZ shooting on FB! It appears to have been scrubbed. Even my posts have disappeared along with the link to the madman’s manifesto.
Who says the news media does not control what info you get. If it serve their purpose, print it. If it doesn’t, bury it.
Anonymous network of anti-fascists?
In other words, they are Deep State Progressives, employed full time by USA intelligence agencies, who leak everything they know to reporters at Huff Po!
