Reason #1,987,326 why hugs are better than violence: violence scares away even the bravest and most handsome of zombie killers, such as Brad Pitt!

As you’ve probably heard by now, there have been deadly riots and national demonstrations occurring in Brazil.

The latest Brad Pitt film, World War Z, was supposed to premiere there with the usual star-studded appearances and red carpet flair.

Unfortunately, the current situation has been deemed unsafe and the premiere is no longer occurring.

Paramount released the following statement:

"In light of the current and ongoing events taking place in Brazil, we will not proceed with red carpet arrivals. Everyone involved with World War Z send their respect and goodwill toward the people of Brazil at this time of national unrest."


We send our respect and goodwill as well.

    I don't know who is your sources, but there is no deadly riot here in Brazil. There was some student manifestation that was fought by the police with violence and in response all nation is going to the street peacefully to show authorities our straight and ask for changes. There is some crazy people that uses the occasion as an excuse to vandalise. But this are at most a 100 persons in 3.000.000 that where in peace.

    Re: Silvia – True, there is no deadly riots here in Brazil. It's a shame the media only show these very few isolated events, the protests are quite pacific, so there is political reform and that corruption is actually punished in our country. In fact the only violence is against the people who pay the highest tax rates and do not have health, education and justice.

    Sorry but no to Brazil.
    Was going to go one year and then read a letter in th LA Times about a guy who got robbed at gunpoint on Ipanema.
    Went to Costa Rica instead, best move I ever made.
