I don't get it
Maybe he just doesn't want to come out and say it's because of the earthquake and now nuclear plant scare. He's got a 5 year old son with Rachel Weise. 5 years old is old enough to know what's going on in the world, but not the nuts and buts and behind things.
Maybe the kid was freaking out because he didn't want Daddy going to where a nuclear meltdown might be happening. Or maybe Aronofsky had planned to bring his son over for some visits there, but he doesn't want to bring him there now.
But like you said he's known what the schedule was for a long time so I don't really buy that reason.
