Sean Penn in "Gangster Squad"

The upcoming movie “Gangster Squad” contains a scene in which gunmen open fire in a movie theater, and a trailer including that scene was even briefly shown prior to “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Following the massacre last Friday in Aurora, Colo., studio Warner Bros. will postpone the film from its September release date, in order to conduct reshoots and put some distance between the shooting and the movie’s release.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie may instead open Jan. 11. The period gangster drama stars Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling.

    I eagerly await the release of that movie and am sorry they have to postpone it but it’s for the best.
