A rep for Warner Bros. tells CNN Entertainment that “Warner Bros. Pictures has canceled the previously scheduled personal appearances by the cast and filmmakers in Mexico and Japan on behalf of 'The Dark Knight Rises.' However, in an effort not to disappoint the dedicated fans of the film, we will proceed with our previously scheduled special screenings for invited guests and promotional winners.”

    Your theory is way off base. People cause these horrific acts. It takes a sick mind to commit a crime against society like this. I, like millions of other folks, watch violent movies, or play video games that have violence. I have never in my life tried to hurt a living soul. They, in no way, influence me to be anyone but myself. To blame the entertainment industry for these horrific acts is just plain stupid. These people have a mental problem. You can't blame an industry for their acts. These people have mental issues, and should be under the care of a doctor. Hey, maybe a red shirt sets them off. Did you have a red shirt on that day? Maybe it is your fault they went ballistic. See how stupid that sounds.

      No...we need to blame the parents of these bad seeds. Because of Government influence in how you raise your kids, you are not allowed to discipline anymore. And if you have a kid that has that weak of a mind to try and imitate what they see on the screen, something else is seriously wrong mentally!

    I am so proud they cancelled the promotional tour of this dark warped movie. There have been numerous reports of people seeing it then committing violence. It is time for our culture to stop glorifying violence.

      I agree with Alexander. Violence in media needs to be stopped. At very minimum, the movie should now receive a NC17 rating. When is our society going to realize that glamorizing violence causes our youth to imitate it? Constant violence in movies and video games desensitize our youth. It teaches them that it is ok to go out and do horrendous acts. It teaches them "it's ok. It's just like on the video game". We need to wake up. Hollywood needs to stop making it appear "cool" to kill or torture others.

    I think Usher will attend the funeral, after all, he was his step-son at 1 time. I'm sure he still cared for him. I wonder what kind of lake accident he had...? Whatever it was, that's too bad.
