Should Warner Brothers Pull “The Dark Knight Rises” From The Theaters?

They are reportedly considering doing just that.

Bros., the studio releasing “The Dark Knight Rises,” is considering whether to cancel screenings across the country after a massacre took place at a midnight screening in Colorado that left 12 moviegoers dead in the early hours of Friday.

Executives at the Hollywood studio were gathered at the Burbank offices from the middle of the night, struggling with whether to alter roll-out plans for the second-biggest release in movie history.

An executive told TheWrap that Warner was watching the situation and still considering whether to take further measures beyond cancelling the Paris premiere, including cancelling screenings at theater chains.

No surprise that the French have surrendered.  But why in the world would the movie get pulled…AFTER THE BAD GUY’S BEEN CAUGHT?

This isn’t the DC sniper story (and there were no widespread business shutdowns then, by the way) where we don’t know when the next bullet will strike. The nut is in jail—what’s the problem?

You’ll never be more safe at a movie theater than you will be tonight.
