Giving for shooting victims nears $2 million

Gov. John Hickenlooper announced Tuesday that contributions to GivingFirst.org, which is accepting donations for victims and relatives of Friday's mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, had reached nearly $2 million.

"The needs will be great and we look forward to seeing the fund grow exponentially," he said in a news release. "This money will help those impacted by this tragedy begin to recover and rebuild their lives."

Rotten Tomatoes disables comments on 'Dark Knight Rises' reviews

Ratings for "The Dark Knight Rises" have dipped a bit on movie review aggregation site RottenTomatoes.com, sitting at 86 percent fresh after a series of written standing ovations arrived earlier this week.

Clearly, a rating like that means the majority of critics were pretty pleased with Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, but as far as those who weren't? Extreme commenter backlash.

Limbaugh: Does 'Dark Knight Rises' have it in for Romney?

An early trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises" highlights a plot point that references a timely societal issue: a tension between the haves and the have-nots.

Ledger, who died the same year the film was released, turned in an Oscar-winning performance as "The Dark Knight's" villain, the Joker.
