The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale released a statement regarding Friday’s massacre in Aurora, Colorado, during a screening of the film that killed 12 and almost 60 others.
Bale’s statement reads:
Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.
Dark Knight‘s director Christopher Nolan released a longer statement on Friday afternoon on behalf of the cast and crew. In it Nolan said, "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."
Warner Brothers, the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises, cancelled its Paris movie premiere on Friday and suggested it may not report this weekend’s box office numbers out of respect for the victims.
