Director Christopher Nolan who directed The Dark Knight Rises speaks out about the theater shooting in Aurora Colorado, calling the incident “unbearably savage”.

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of “The Dark Knight Rises”, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community,” says Nolan.  “I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime.  The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families.”

We can’t imagine what the city of Aurora must be going through right now.  Our prayers are with all of you!!!
