Box office update: No weekend estimates until Monday
There will be no official Dark Knight Rises numbers today.
All major studios in Hollywood are declining to report box office figures this weekend, in light of the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Although some indies are reporting grosses for limited releases, full box office results will not be made public until Monday.
The mutual decision — which mirrors a similar one made yesterday — is the latest effort at sensitivity following the shooting, which left 12 dead and many more injured. Warner Brothers has already canceled premieres of The Dark Knight Rises in France, Japan, and Mexico.
Christian Bale told CBS News, “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones,” and director Christopher Nolan expressed his “profound sorrow” in a statement.
