2017 Movies: Dark Night
This winter comes in theaters Tim Sutton’s third feature, Dark Night, loosely based on the Aurora Massacre, which took place in a movie theater from Aurora, Colorado, in 2012, during the screening of The Dark Knight Rises, resulting in 12 people shot to death and 70 wounded.
Created in a documentary-style and featuring a cast of first-time performers and non-professional actors, this “haunting” drama film explores a day in the life of six strangers, the shooter included, who intersect at a suburban Cineplex where a massacre occurs.
Dark Night stars Anna Rose Hopkins, Robert Jumper, Karina Macias, Conor A. Murphy, Aaron Purvis, Rosie Rodriguez, and others, and features music by Maica Amata.
The film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and is scheduled to hit theaters on February 3.
