WB to make ‘substantial’ donation to shooting victims

'Dark Knight' premieres cancelled; studio also pulls 'Gangster Squad' trailer

Warner Bros. is making a “substantial” donation to victims of Friday’s shooting rampage in Aurora, Colo., during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

A spokeswoman for the studio said that execs have arranged for the donation following conversations with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

The funds will be donated through Colorado’s Community First Foundation, identified on the givingfirst.org website and distributed through several charities that support the shooting victims.

Warner Bros. has canceled the key parts of three international premieres for “The Dark Knight Rises.” The studio has also pulled the trailer for “Gangster Squad,” a period drama that featured a scene in which agents spray machine-gun fire into a crowded movie theater from behind the screen and has decided to remove the scene from the film, which opens Sept. 7.
