Sony and The Interview aren't the only movie-related topics making headlines this week.
That's because the parents of the man who is accused of shooting up the Aurora, CO, movie theater during the Dark Knight Rises premiere have decided what they want for their son.
Robert and Arlene Holmes believe that their 27-year-old son should be institutionalized for the rest of his life because they say his crime was an act of insanity.

James Holmes pleaded not guilty for killing 12 people back in 2012, and his parents don't want to see him face a murder trial that could potentially result in the death penalty.
"We do not know how many victims of the theater shooting would like to see our son killed. But we are aware of people's sentiments.
We have read postings on the Internet that have likened him to a monster. He is not a monster. He is a human being gripped by a severe mental illness."
We understand that they want the most fair outcome for their son, but we think whatever the families of the victims desire should also play into the court's decision.
Regardless of the trial's outcome, we just hope that justice is served.
