“The Dark Knight Rises” theater massacre leaves at least 12 dead, 59 wounded

Colorado Shooting

Posted by on

A tragedy has struck. During a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado, a gunman came out and opened fire, killing at least 12 and wounding more than 50 screening attendees. Two more victims died in local hospitals. The murderer has since been identified and is being held by Colorado police.

Witnesses say that James Holmes, 24, kicked in an emergency exit door to a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” at about 12:30am Friday (July 20) at Century 16 Multiplex, wearing what appeared to be a bullet-proof vest and a gas mask. He threw out a canister that emitted some sort of gas and started open firing with a shotgun and an automatic rifle. Two pistols were also found on the scene. Theater attendees were reportedly confused by the incident because there was shooting going on onscreen at the same time that Holmes started his attack.

Among the injured were a 3-month old baby, children, teenagers and adults ranging up to 45 years of age. Holmes’ motives are not yet known, and police report he did not resist arrest once he was captured.

President Barack Obama issued a statement about the shooting, saying, “Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado … We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family.”

Warner Bros. reportedly has cancelled the upcoming Paris premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” and halted all interviews with its cast and crew. None of them have released official statements yet, but the studio says, “Warner Bros. and the filmmakers are deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is helping local police investigate the incident. A press conference will be held at 11:00am MST.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
