The Dark Knight Rises Shooting Shocks the Nation
The biggest news about The Dark Knight Rises's release was supposed to be about box office totals, but that was overshadowed by a tragic event. At a midnight screening of the film in Aurora, CO, a shooter opened fire on theatergoers, claiming the lives of 12 people and injuring more. The horrifying incident prompted statements from director Christopher Nolan and President Obama himself. It was a sad event for the country and a sad way to end Nolan's Batman trilogy.
