    They put a lot of money and advertising into the movie which was promoted as a "blockbuster". Actor Christian Bale who plays in the movie visited the scene of the shooting in Co.. Was it a publicity stunt designed to reignite interest in the movie or was it a sincere gesture of sympathy. The word "sincere" doesn't seem to exist in Tinseltown so I'm going with stunt.

    Who cares what it was. It was a good thing to do ... stunt or not. It was less of a publicity stunt than Obama going there, that's for sure.

    Don't ever have much good to say about most of the people of Hollyweird or the various products they put out, but this actor's visit seemed sincere and not a publicity stunt of any kind.

    I haven't heard of anyone not going to see the movie because of the shooting. I'm sure it's doing just fine at the box office.

    I've seen the first two and haven't had any urges to go on a shooting rampage. Well other than dealing with traffic sometimes, but that has nothing to do with hollyweird.

    The guy was just a nutburger!!!!

    How would it hurt them? They had nothing to do with it. I am still trying to figure out why Nolan and everyone else released statements. As far as Bale goes he didn't tell anyone he was going. Most of the images caught of him were by individuals not the media. There was definitely no publicity stunt.

    I'm sure the Politicians will make a lot of this with the elections coming up.
    I think there is gonna be a push to make only PG movies in the future...
    That's the way politics is.

    I was wondering Libs....
    When a Hollywood studio has a hit movie.
    Did they make that or did government have a part of that success?

    Fair question...
    I wanna see some of the Lib heavy hitters hear answer this...

    Look at the Denver Post photo. There were dozens of photographers. Bale told Warner Brothers he was going. How long could a hollywood studio keep a secret?

    Yes eventually they caught on. That is inevitable with celebrities.
