In case most of you haven't heard the news that's all over TV and the Interwebs, a masked gunman walked into a sold out movie theatre house that was showing a midnight showing The Dark Knight Rises and opened fire killing 12 in Aurora, CO.
Because of the tragedy, Warner Bros, the studio that made TDKR, is now considering canceling all showings and premieres of the blockbuster film and pushing it back because of the unexpected tragic events that took place.
According to The Wrap, "Warner Bros, the studio releasing The Dark Knight Rises, is considering whether to cancel screenings across the country after a massacre took place at a midnight screening in Colorado that left 12 moviegoers dead in the early hours of Friday.
Executives at the Hollywood studio were gathered at the Burbank offices from the middle of the night, struggling with whether to alter roll-out plans for the second-biggest release in movie history."
The official premiere in Paris that director Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway were planning on attending has already been canceled due to the tragic events.
Meanwhile Warner Bros has declined to comment on the matter, except for an earlier statement: "Warner Bros. and the filmmakers are deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident," the studio said in a statement. "We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time."
What do you guys think, should Warner Bros pull the film and show it a later date due to the tragic events this morning? Or do you think they should let the film play?
