Warner Bros. movie postponed due to theater massacre

Posted: Updated:

The AP reports that Warner Bros. is moving the release of "Gangster Squad" to January because a key scene in the movie is now being compared to the shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

"Gangster Squad" is set in the 1940s and follows the battle between Los Angeles police and mobsters. The climax of the movie is said to come as gangsters, who are behind the screen of a movie theater, use automatic weapons to shoot into the audience.

Warner Bros. have not commented if they would re shoot the scene. The movie production company has pulled the trailer in the wake of the shooting.  It was supposed to be released on September 7th.
