the dark knight rises


A kick in the teeth for those who have lost loved ones in such a horrible way. The relatives of those murdered by James Holmes at the 2012 screening of The Dark Knight Rises at Cinemark have called for a boycott of the cinema following news that attorney’s for the chain are demanding legal fees of $700,000 after an unsuccessful attempt to sue the company.


Cinemark’s lawyers have said in legal documents that they need the money to cover the cost of preserving evidence, retrieving and copying records, travel and other expenses, and whilst the request has not been immediately ruled upon, Colorado court rules allow winning sides of a court case to recover legal fees.


A appeal by the victims families is pending.
