Warner Bros. will deliver the fund to help the victims and their families through givingfirst.org and encourage the employees to do the same.

Collecting a whopping $160.9 million on its debut weekend in North America alone, "The Dark Knight Rises" is giving back to the Aurora community following a tragic shooting incident that killed 12 moviegoers and injured more than 50 others. Warner Bros. will donate a "substantial" amount of money to help victims and their families.

The giant movie studio confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter they contacted Colorodo governor John Hickenlooper's office and announced they would deliver the charity through givingfirst.org. Also, WB CEO Barry Meyer would send an email to the employees, encouraging them to make personal donations to the cause.

The studio issued a statement soon after hearing about the Colorado incident, "Warner Bros. is deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time." Director Christopher Nolan, composer Hans Zimmer, and actors Christian Bale & Anne Hathaway have all expressed their remorses as well.
