Hollywood continued to rejigger its publicity plans for holiday releases Monday in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
The studio wouldn't officially say what the changes are, but a source confirmed that a scene of Cruise's character firing off a semi-automatic weapon is being cut from promotional spots.
Jack Reacher, rated PG-13 and opening with sniper fire, isn't the only Christmas movie laced with violence.
Django Unchained, opening Christmas Day, is directed by Quentin Tarantino, known for his over-the-top violence. The R-rated Django stars Jamie Foxx as a slave promised his freedom if he helps a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz ) track down a plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
On Monday, The Weinstein Co. announced it was cancelling Tuesday night's Django premiere in Los Angeles because of the school tragedy.
