Nolan Speaks Out About Tragedy

WB has issued a statement directly from Christopher Nolan about the terrible Theater Shooting that happened earlier today.

Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of “The Dark Knight Rises”, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families. – Christopher Nolan

    Well said.
    if comic book heroes were real, I would certainly hope that monster has a run in with The Spectre >:(
    those were fellow Fans, loyal fans, who did nothing wrong, who only enjoyed what they loved most, & they were robbed of an experience that was important to them.

    Mr. Nolan, a true class-act. I never thought we’d discuse something like this in this forum Ive been visiting for months. My condolences for the families….

    Bravo, Mr. Nolan!

    You took the words right out of my mouth.

    Oh how I wish Batman were real. He would make that scumbag pay for what he did & bring him to justice!

      Right now, I think I’d prefer someone like The Spectre.
