Christian Bale Speaks of Dark Knight Massacre
Those who switched on the news during past couple of days will know of the horrors that plagued a
midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado. For those who aren’t aware, allow us to
fill you in.
During a midnight showing of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, a man wearing a gas mask and
bullet proof vest entered the theater and began opening fire. Due to constant gun shots in the film, it
took some movie goers a bit to figure out what was actually going on. The killer then proceeded to use
as many as 4 guns killing up to 12 people and injuring a total of 53. The man was then apprehended by
the authorities and identified a James Holmes.
As if things weren’t bad enough, the authorities then found that his entire apartment was rigged with
explosives thus causing the evacuation of hundreds of people. As of now, police are still struggling to
enter the apartment saying it could be days before the entire mess was sorted out.
The alleged killer, James Holmes, has yet to take the stand which leaves his motives in question. Some
have said that he was attempting to emulate the crazed sociopathic killings of The Joker who appeared
in the previous Batman flick dubbed The Dark Knight. Regardless of his motives, everyone from
Christopher Nolan to Barack Obama has come forth to speak on the matter expressing their deepest
sympathy for all who were involved.
Now the Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale, has taken the time to give his own opinion on the matter.
Taking a stance similar to many others who have released a statement, Bale went on record as
saying “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and the
grief of the victims and their loves ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
While this is definitely a nice gesture it will most likely provide little relief to the families and loved ones
of those lost during the massacre. James Holmes is currently set to appear in court on Monday where he
may face the death penalty if convicted.
