Brad Pitt Cancels ‘Voyage Of Time’ Premiere Appearance Amid Divorce Drama
Brad Pitt released a statement Tuesday saying he won’t be attending the premiere of the new IMAX documentary he narrates, Voyage of Time, in the wake of his divorce from Angelina Jolie. The actor insisted he’s proud of the film, but explained he’s “currently focused on family.”
Voyage of Time, which examines the origins of the universe, was written and directed by Terrence Malick, who Pitt also worked with on the 2011 drama, The Tree of Life. The actor was expected to attend the U.S. premiere of the film Wednesday night, but his plans have changed in light of his recent split. Pitt said in a statement to Gossip Cop, “Terrence’s ‘Voyage of Time’ is an incredibly beautiful and unique experimental IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time. I’ve very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I’m currently focused on my family situation and don’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see.”
As Gossip Cop has reported, Pitt and Jolie are in the midst of a custody battle, and the actor hasn’t seen his six children since the couple split last week. The kids have been living with Jolie since the separation, but the actor is seeking joint custody. Meanwhile, Voyage of Time hits IMAX theaters October 7.
