Warner Bros: Dark Knight Will Stay in Theaters
07.20.12 by REELZ
Earlier today, it was reported that Warner Bros. was considering cancelling screenings of The Dark Knight Rises across the country after a gunman attacked moviegoers at a midnight showing of the movie, killing twelve and injuring dozens more. After time was spent considering the issue, Warner Bros. has decided that the movie will be kept in theaters after all. Many theater owners are ramping up security at cineplexes in light of the tragedy, and AMC Entertainment has banned costumed movie goers from their theaters.
There will be a minor change to some showings of The Dark Knight Rises across the country. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. had planned for a Gangster Squad trailer to be shown with Dark Knight in many US theaters. The trailer contained a scene with guns being fired in a theater, and Warner Bros. execs decided to pull the trailer early this morning.
