We cannot even begin to fathom the shooting that happened in Aurora, Colorado this morning, when a gunman opened fire at an early morning screening of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and injuring more than 50.
Today, the film opens in theaters and plans for a red carpet premiere in Paris, France tonight have been cancelled, along with press interviews with the cast, following the news of the shooting.
Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Morgan Freeman are at a Paris hotel and were planning on doing media interviews before hearing the news of the absolutely devastating mass killing.
The shooting is the top story in France right now and no plans have been made to reschedule the premiere. Neither Christopher Nolan nor the cast have commented yet.
Our thoughts go out to all involved and the family and friends of the victims who were horribly killed.
