Out of respect for the victims in Aurora, Colorado, Hollywood has decided to delay the release of box-office numbers until Monday.
Warner Brothers announced the news Friday in the wake of Friday morning’s tragic screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Sony, Fox, Disney, Universal, Fox, Paramount and Lionsgate said Saturday they would join Warner Brothers in delaying their numbers until Monday.
Security has been heightened at theaters across the country. AMC theaters said they are not allowing audiences to come to the movie dressed like characters from the popular Batman franchise.
Rises star Christian Bale said his heart goes out to the victims of the tragedy.
“Words cannot express the horror that I feel,” Bale, who plays the caped crusader in the film, said in a statement. “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
