The weekly film earnings were reported Monday instead of the usual Sunday out of respect for the victims of Friday’s Colorado movie theater massacre. James Holmes, a 24-year-old neuroscience student, has been charged with opening fire during a midnight screening of the blockbuster in a crowded Aurora theater.
Holmes appeared in court for the first time Monday after he was arrested last week in the mass shooting at the sold-out movie theater. Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester ordered the graduate student held without bond, saying there was probable cause to continue the case. Twenty-three people remained in area hospitals Monday, 11 of them in critical condition.
