Hey folks, Harry here... The Aurora Movie Theater Massacre upon the release of THE DARK KNIGHT, has spawned a film titled THE DARK NIGHT, which will follow 6 new actors - one of the six is the shooter, the rest... well, we'll have to say, but it sounds like they're folks in the theater - and this film follows them on one fateful day. This shooting was something that I've been terrified was going to happen over the last 20 years - with more and more mass shootings, it was a matter of time that a tragedy would strike a movie going audience. 12 died and 70 injured. Horrifying. I kinda loathe that the film has one of the main characters being based upon James Holmes, as I believe that would be his fondest dream, and frankly... FUCK HIS DREAMS. He's a nightmare. Sorry, those that make our world less safe, less innocent.... I get why they become fascinating characters to portray, I just hate that it is done within their lifetimes to witness and hear about.
This is playing at Sundance, then will have a slow rollout beginning in NY & LA before spreading... It's directed by Tim Sutton, who directed that musical drama MEMPHIS - that just didn't soar. This trailer looks captivating. Even though intellectually, watching this film in a theater will be an exercise in fear. But then, more and more we live in a society of fear. I just don't want any more movie lovers slaughtered or maimed in any way shape or form, unless it is self-inflicted make-up injuries before an appropriate horror movie. NO REAL HURTING! This trailer debuted at Entertainment Weekly.
Everybody stay sane & safe and...
Keep it cool,
