Dark Night After All

The midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” ended in tragedy for those in Denver, Colorado last night. The incident occurred at the Century 16 theater in Aurora, where a gunman opened fire inside the theater, killing 12 people and injuring 50+ others.

It was reported that the gunman set off gas canisters prior to walking to the front of the screen to set fire on the audience. Movie patrons initially thought that the gas was a special effect for the midnight screening. Once they realized that this was the real deal, they ran for their lives.

The horrific event is being addressed by President Obama who released the following statement:

“Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my Administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time. We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family, friends, and neighbors, and we must stand together with them in the challenging hours and days to come.”

The gunman was found near a car outside the theater and did not resist arrest by the police. The shooter is believed to be an ex-graduate student of the University of Colorado medical school.

The scene is still under investigation to determine what caused the suspect with no prior criminal record to perform such a horrific act.

Holmes is Back!

Once the star of the 90s series “Daswon’s Creek,” Katie Holmes is now luggage-free and ready to take over the acting world. Her last film prior to marrying Tom Cruise was “Pieces of April,” in which she played a struggling New Yorker trying to impress her visiting suburban family.

She later returned to the big screen when she starred in “Batman Begins” in 2005. Holmes then backed out of “Dark Knight,” which became one of the biggest movies of the decade. Katie took on some smaller roles while dating Tom in “Mad Money,” “Jack and Jill,” and “The Romantics.”

There is hope for Holmes’ future, as she just completed shooting a modern adaption of Chekhov’s “The Segull,” and will begin shooting a film she co-wrote and produces called “Molly.”

It is evident that her marriage to Tom Cruise put Katie’s acting career on the back burner. Her now six-year-old daughter, Suri, is ready for school, allowing Holmes more time to focus on her roles. Hollywood is confident that Holme’s career will take off again, as she was always a true natural in front of the camera.
