PARIS, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The French premieres of Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies and Natalie Portman's Jane's Got a Gun have been canceled, following Friday's bloody, ISIS-led attacks on Paris.

More than 100 people died in the coordinated shootings and explosions around the French city.

The Hollywood Reporter said Sunday's press junket and Monday's gala screening for Jane's Got a Gun were scrapped in the wake of Friday's violence.

Portman, who lives in France, also postponed her scheduled French television appearances to promote the film.

Sunday's premiere of Bridge of Spies was put on hold, as well.

Spielberg reportedly was en route to Paris from Berlin when news of the terror attacks broke.

"In light of the tragedy in Paris, we have canceled our scheduled film events. Further, we stand with the people of Paris and our thoughts go out to all those affected by these horrible events," the film's studio 20th Century Fox said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The popular theme park Disneyland Paris, which is located in the Paris suburb Marne-la-Vallee, was shuttered Saturday, Variety reported.

"Considering the gravity of the events that occurred in France and by solidarity for the French government and the victims of these hideous attacks, Disneyland Paris has decided to not open on Nov. 14," the park said in a statement. "Our prayers go out to all those who were hurt by these horrific events."

All schools and museums in France were also closed Saturday.
