As Hunger Games stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth shared their thoughts on the Paris attacks, news surfaced that there would be a big change to the Los Angeles premiere of the franchise's final film.

"Out of respect for the very recent events in Paris, we have decided to modify our red carpet and we will not conduct interviews at Monday's Mockingjay 2 premiere," Lionsgate said Sunday in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "We will proceed with the rest of the event as planned in honor of the incredible fans who have always supported our films with such passion."

This is a huge deal considering this was the only premiere scheduled in the United States ahead of its Friday release. The film has already premiered in Paris, Berlin, London, Madrid and Beijing.

Prior to the announcement, J.Law posted a message on Facebook in tribute to the victims of the attacks, writing, "My deepest condolences are with the victims and their families of the Paris attacks. This is a devastating tragedy. Beyond words. All of those who share a joy for life have the City of Lights in our hearts right now. Paris, we stand with you."

Liam, Willow Shields and Elizabeth Banks meanwhile, posted an image of the peace symbol surrounding the Eiffel Tower, with Willow captioning the image "#prayforparis," and Elizabeth writing, "What to even say?" Josh Hutcherson hasn't posted his thoughts about Paris yet, but he did change his Twitter profile photo to a photo of the Eiffel Tower.
Following a series of terror attacks in Paris Friday that killed 129 people and injured 352 others, several other music and film events have been canceled, according to Entertainment Weekly, including the Sunday premiere of Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies and Natalie Portman's Jane Got a Gun.
