Hollywood reacts in wake of school shootings

Number of high profile film premieres have been cancelled in response to Connecticut massacre.

    Fifty-five prominent Hollywood celebrities have participated in an online campaign with a simple message against gun violence: "Enough".

    Several film and television production companies have also cancelled screenings of films and television shows which feature gunplay and killing.

    This is in response to the recent school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
