Batman movie composer Hans Zimmer expressed his sadness regarding the tragic shooting that occurred in Aurora, Colorado. The Dark Knight Rises team was expecting to spend the weekend celebrating the film together, but the plans were put on halt since the incident. He expressed that the entire crew and cast were deeply saddened by the event.
The suspect named James Eagle Holmes shot 71 victims young and old, killing 12 on the scene. The whole nation came together to mourn for the victims and their families and friends.
Zimmer, who is an Oscar-winning composer, expressed to Rollingstone, "We're all devastated by what's happened. When we set up this interview, we didn't know that things would change. I was going to send a note to Chris (Nolan)... but I didn't have the words. Suddenly, words become meaningless because it's so beyond anything. Devastated, I suppose, is the word."
"It's just sad. Here we are, we were trying to celebrate this movie and celebrating that we'd finished it and then this happened. I just feel so incredibly sad for these people."
