    Warner Brothers, the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises, will make a “substantial” donation to victims of the Aurora, Colorado shooting, sources told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday. The studio is reportedly in talks with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office to make a lump sum donation. Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer will reportedly set out a companywide email Monday evening advising employees of the donation and how any individual can personally donate. Despite the shooting that left 12 dead and 58 wounded, The Dark Knight Rises still made $160.9 million in three days, the best opening for a non-3D film ever.
