'The Dark Knight Rises' theater shooting in Colorado has taken an emotional toll on the country, and none seem more sympathetic to the victims and their families than Warner Bros. Not only have director Christopher Nolan and the 'Dark Knight' cast expressed their condolences, but the production company has taken further steps in consideration of this tragic event at the expense of its upcoming flick 'Gangster Squad.'
Earlier we reported that 'Gangster Squad' may be up for reshoots because of a pivotal scene that has Sean Penn gunning people down in a theater. Whether that scene will survive is unknown, but Warner Brothers is looking to move the picture to January.
In some ways this was inevitable. Warner Bros, and frankly the whole nation, has been shaken by the horrible massacre that took place in Aurora, Colorado. In light of recent events, Warner Bros is compelled to change a Ruben Fleischer's latest picture 'Gangster Squad.'
Following the tragic events that occurred in Aurora, Colorado early this morning when a shooter opened fire during a midnight screening of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' Warner Bros. has decided to pull the 'Gangster Squad' trailer.
See all those cool cats up there? They're just chillin', waiting for the new international trailer to be released for their upcoming movie 'Gangster Squad.' Looks like they can finally stop hanging out at the park and go watch that new trailer that was just released today.
You might be wondering what a contemporary hip-hop song is doing in a trailer for 'Gangster Squad,' a dramatic action film about gangsters in the 40s. Or you're just rolling with it because the trailer is awesome and that song kicks it pretty hard... What is that song, anyway?
Though it might still be missing a release date, Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad' now has a trailer, which features Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling chasing Sean Penn's Mickey Cohen through Los Angeles. It's more than likely this will be attached to 'Dark Shadows' this weekend, but if you don't want to wait, the trailer's here.
It's hard to know what to make of Warner Brothers fiddling with their schedule right now. But they've just moved 'Argo' - which stars and was directed by Ben Affleck - from its September 14 release date to October 12. Meanwhile 'Gangster Squad,' the Ruben Fleischer-directed gangster films with Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin, got moved off the October date and is now unscheduled.
