This morning, Warner Brothers pulled the trailer for upcoming film “Gangster Squad” from screenings of “The Dark Knight Rises,” which debuted in theatres last night. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. held a meeting this morning to deliberate on whether or not to pull the trailer.
The decision comes after news of the Century theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado, which, so far, has left as many as 12 dead and tens more wounded.
