Actor Christian Bale, the star of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy – Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises – has issued a statement about the tragic shooting at the Aurora, Colorado movie theater during a midnight screening of TDKR:

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.”

12 innocent moviegoers were killed and 58 others were injured when James Holmes, 24, opened fire during the first screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Holmes was arrested near his car in the theater’s parking lot and will be arraigned on Monday, July 23, 2012 in Colorado.

Warner Bros has declined to issue press releases with box office figures this weekend and has re-edited some of the film’s trailers. In addition, networks have pulled trailers out of respect for the victims of this horrifying event.
