Sony has become the latest studio to pause the release of its films in Russia — including the high-profile Marvel pic Morbius, starring Jared Leto — as the country continues its invasion of neighboring Ukraine.
“Given the ongoing military action in Ukraine and the resulting uncertainty and humanitarian crisis unfolding in that region, we will be pausing our planned theatrical releases in Russia, including the upcoming release of Morbius,” a Sony spokesperson said late Monday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been impacted and hope this crisis will be resolved quickly.”
