Earlier today, a 24-year-old lone gunman brought at least three guns, a gas mask, tear gas and a bulletproof vest into a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado and opened fire during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. As of last count, 12 people are dead and at the time of this writing, 71 58 injured. According to reports, the suspect's name is James Holmes. He was born in 1987 and has no prior police incidents, save for one traffic ticket last year.
President Obama was "shocked and saddened" to hear the news, saying, "We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family." The theater is located approximately 15 miles away from Littleton, Colorado, where in 1999 two kids shot up Columbine High School, killing 13 and wounding a dozen others. At this time there is no relation between the two shootings.
Warner Bros. has canceled tonight's Paris premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in the wake of the shooting, while the cast has canceled all interviews. In a statement released to the media, the studio said, "Warner Bros. is deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time.”
Our hearts go out to all impacted by this tragedy.
The point is let's hope that does not happen again because we can't live in isolated fear just because this crazy yet truly dreadful thing happen movies fall so they can pick themselves back up just like the cult favorites although we hated but years ago people still like it
This is really sad!!! My girlfriend didn't wanna go because of that but I went to watch the movie i cannot live in fear . My sincere and deep condolences to the family of the victims. Some people do not know how to separate reality from fiction. So sad
You are right we can't live out of fear because one minute you expect the worse the next things go right
I live in Denver and that is my theater. I will be going, but it may be a while because I'm planning to wait till the Century Aurora opens. I can't let the lunatic win!
You said that twice
Did you get my last reply saying the point is let's hope it does not happen again
I don't think that theatre is going to be open for a very long time. You might want to rethink your plans. just saying.
I dont think I will be going to a movie in a long while-- in part due to this indicdent and part due to the fact there are no movies coming out I would want to spend almost $10 on.
I'm just going to chill about this because I live in long beach and Monday I'm going to the safest part of town to see the movie in IMAX hoping this incident does not repeat
Whether this was the 'safest part of town' is immaterial, this could happen anywhere. I will not let this maniac stop me from going to a movie. In fact I'm here to check times to go today. I'll have to go a little further, but in my own way I am telling that monster that he has no power over me!
I will not allow it to happen besides I bought my tickets last week to
the Edwards IMAX presentation this afternoon and Regal should have already discussed security plans including locking the emergency exits for anyone who comes out those doors
I found your promotional text re: The Dark Knight and free mp3 credits to be in poor taste. I'll be unsubscribing to those. All they ever did was annoy me anyway...
Sorry Fandango, I really don't feel like going to this movie today. How can I get a credit for the movie that I already purchased a week ago?
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
