Box office figures put on hold
Hollywood studios are uniting in a rare show of solidarity to give their weekend box office reporting a rest because of the shootings in Colorado at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Sony, Fox, Disney and Universal said they are joining the new Batman film's distributor Warner Brothers in withholding their box-office figures for the weekend.
Warner announced on Friday that it would forgo the usual revenue reports until Monday out of respect for the victims and their families in the shooting that killed 12 and wounded 58 at the midnight show earlier in the day.
Sunday box office estimates are a weekly routine for Hollywood, with studios jostling for bragging rights as the number one movie and always aiming to break revenue records.
