9:38 pm, July 25th, 2012
Warner Bros. announced on Wednesday that it has pushed back the release of Gangster Squad by several months in light of last week’s tragic killings during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, the movie – which was originally slated to open September 7 – features a scene showing a movie theater killing spree similar to the one that tragically played out in Aurora, Colorado last Friday.
Warner Bros. initially pulled the trailers that featured the controversial scene, but has since decided to re-shoot that part of the movie entirely.
Consequently, the film will now be released January 11, 2013.
Meanwhile, Summit has opted to not to cut a scene in Step Up Revolution, opening Friday, in which dancers burst into a room wearing gas masks and body vests, and threaten to throw gas grenades.
What do you think of the movie studios’ decisions?
