Shooting at ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Midnight Show: Twelve Killed and Fifty Injured

The shooting rampage that left 12 dead and 50 injured at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises reverberated throughout Hollywood and the nation as the latest deadly shooting incited mass media coverage.   According to Variety, the tragedy left Warner Brother execs reeling from the news and the studio quickly cancelled plans for a Paris premiere scheduled today.  Director, Christopher Nolan and key cast members were to attend.  It is unclear if this tragedy will cause any changes to the marketing campaign or what, if any, fallout for the highly anticipated film.

A lone gunman fired on moviegoers attending a 12:05 screening of The Dark Knight Rises early Friday morning.   He walked into a Century 16 theater in Aurora Colorado,  seven miles outside of Denver and started firing shortly after the movie began.

TV news coverage was quick to point out Aurora is less than twenty miles from Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, where thirteen people were killed by two students in 1999.
