(Newser) – The studio behind The Dark Knight Rises is donating funds to help the victims of the mass shooting at the Aurora theater. The exact amount isn't being disclosed, but Warner Bros. officials plan to make a "substantial" lump-sum contribution, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Studio representatives have been in touch with the office of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, and are following his recommendation to contribute to the "Aurora Victim Relief Fund" through the website givingfirst.org. The fund will support the victims of the shooting that killed 12 and injured dozens of moviegoers last week. Warner Bros. officials will also encourage employees to donate to the fund.
