Warner pulls trailer for Gangster Squad
After the rampage that took place at a midnight screening of the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20th, 2012, where 12 people were killed and more than 50 injured, Warner Bros. initiates further consequences. They already cancelled the premiere in Paris and all interviews with the cast and now they turn towards the trailer for their upcoming mob drama Gangster Squad, which was also partly screened prior to The Dark Knight Rises.
The trailer for the star-studded gangster drama was released on May 9th, 2012 and includes a scene in which several men line up behind the cinema screen and shoot into the panicking audience. This scene is the reason why Warner officials decided to remove the trailer from all US cinemas and several websites, including the official website of the movie and trailer sites such as the one that Apple provides. Other sites such as Youtube still make it possible to view the trailer, though. Warner's marketing department is currently working on a new trailer that doesn't include the cinema shooting. It's supposed to be delivered to theaters within the next week.
According to the German Bild-Zeitung, plans are being discussed whether the scene will be altered or removed entirely from Gangster Squad. That may make a push of the US release date necessary, which is currently scheduled for September 7th, 2012. However, it's not clear whether such considerations are a fact since the tabloid doesn't name a source. It could just aswell be speculation.
