THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Shooting in Aurora, Colorado

Last night, a gunman killed 12 (confirmed) people at a Colorado opening of The Dark Knight Rises. He wore a gas mask and released an unknown gas into the crowd and opened fire upon them. Several people were killed and 50 were injured. Due to this, the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises scheduled for Friday in Paris has been canceled as well. The gunman is James Holmes, a student who dropped out of the University of Colorado Medical School last month! A total of 71 persons were shot by the suspect.

Let’s remember the following people in this tragedy…

  • John Blunk, 26
  • AJ Boik, 18
  • Air Force Staff Sgt. Jesse E. Childress, 29
  • Gordon W. Cowden, 51
  • Jessica Ghawi, 24
  • John Larimer USN, 27
  • Matt McQuinn, 27
  • Micayla Medek, 23
  • Veronica Moser-Sullivan, 6
  • Alex Sullivan, 27
  • Alexander Teves, 24
  • Rebecca Ann Wingo, 32

I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and families of the shooting at the Century 16 movie theater in Colorado. (Gunman kills 12 at ‘Dark Knight Rises’ screening in Colorado) (images from ABC)

Warner Bros. Studios Official Statement
“Warner Bros. is deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time.”

A blog post from @JessicaRedfield‘s brother on the #theatershooting.

The following is a statement by director Christopher Nolan about the tragic events that happened in Aurora, Colorado.

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.

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.

President Obama has issued a proclamation that orders flags to fly at half-staff from now until sunset on Wednesday.

“As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 20, 2012, in Aurora, Colorado, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, July 25, 2012. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.”

Adam West receives his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on 04/05/12


Adam West
Emcee: Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, President/CEO Leron Gubler
Guest speakers: Radio personality Ralph Garman and Seth McFarlane
Special guest: The Batmobile provided by Barris Kustom Ind.


2,468th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Category of TELEVISION


6764 Hollywood Boulevard in front of The Guinness World of Records Museum*

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor Adam West with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. “We are thrilled to honor Adam with this prestigious award. Fans have been waiting for this special day for many years. Adam West fired up the billion dollar Batman franchise: the golden years and the classic Batman, the Bright Knight. He deserves his place of honor on our famed Walk of Fame,” said Leron Gubler, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO.

During the span of a 50-year career, from Batman to the voice of Quahog’s Mayor on Family Guy, Adam West has become a television icon.

Born in Walla Walla, Washington as William West Anderson , Adam began his career as a radio DJ and TV show host. He arrived in Hollywood in 1959, after landing a contract with Warner Brothers studios. That same year, he made his feature film debut opposite Paul Newman in The Young Philadelphians.

A long line of TV roles followed on shows like Maverick, Bonanza and The Outer Limits, as well as a co-starring role for a season on The Detectives.

But, in 1965, his life would change forever when producer William Dozier, impressed by Adam’s talent, looks and humor, handpicked him to take on the title role of ABC’s new TV series, BATMAN.

It’s been said the biggest pop-culture phenomena of the 1960’s can be boiled down to the “Three B’s”: Beatles, Bond, and BATMAN. In the early 1960’s, Batman was simply a cartoon character in a comic book that was close to cancellation, but Adam West’s performance in the ground-breaking TV adaptation propelled Batman into becoming one of the most-famous characters in modern fiction. West’s turn as the “classic” Batman has laid the foundation for the success of all the incarnations of the “Caped Crusader” that have followed after him. The smash success of the TV series, and the feature film that followed shortly thereafter, launched Adam West into international superstardom in 1966.

After its original run, BATMAN entered into non-stop syndication and Adam West has continued to garner new generations of fans all over the world for the past 40 years. All the while, he’s continued to work on stage, in movies and TV, and as a much sought-after voice actor.
