AURORA, Colo. - The studio that funded the Dark Knight Rises film is donating cash to help the victims of the mass shooting massacre that killed 12 and injured dozens at a screening of the blockbuster movie in an Aurora theater July 20, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
While an exact figure has not been disclosed, Warner Bro. will reportedly donate a “substantial” lump sum to the Aurora Victim Relief fund through givingfirst.org. ( http://bit.ly/Mem1D2 )
The studio reached out to Colorado Governor John Kickenlooper, who identified the fund as a program of Colorado’s Community First Foundation.
Last Friday, Warner Bros. released a statement saying that both the studio and the filmmakers are deeply saddened by the incident, and subsequently canceled the planned Paris premier and other related events.
The studio also withheld the $160.9 million box office figures over the weekend out of respect for the families.
