The Blind Side UK movie premiere scrapped as Sandra Bullock pulls out
The UK premiere of The Blind Side has been scrapped after its Oscar-winning star Sandra Bullock pulled out of the event.
Organisers said the Hollywood star, who scooped the best actress Academy Award last week, is no longer able to travel to the UK for the glitzy bash.
The premiere had been due to take place next Tuesday at the Odeon West End in London. Bullock was scheduled to attend with her co-star, newcomer Quinton Aaron.
The movie is based on the true story of Michael Oher and his journey from virtual homelessness to becoming one of American football's biggest stars.
Bullock won the gong for her role as Leigh Anne Tuohy, a well-heeled mother who takes Michael under her wing.
Organisers said Warner Bros had taken the decision to cancel a planned press conference as well as the premiere.
A Warner Bros spokeswoman said "unforeseen circumstances" had arisen and no further information was being given.
Organisers are still screening the film on Tuesday evening in Leicester Square and guests will still be able to use their tickets.
