The latest installment of the Batman films has come in third for the highest opening weekend ever for a movie at $160.9 million. Only The Avengers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 did better.
But the nation is still jittery about the shootings in Colorado; there have been multiple incidents around the country of police having to respond to movie theaters after crowds became spooked and fled the theater.
In Cochise County, Arizona a man appeared intoxicated, and when confronted he murmured something moviegoers thought was Colorado and that lead to mass-hysteria as people raced for exits. The man, Michael William Borboa, 27, was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, and threatening and intimidating.
In Maine, a man is arrested after telling people he was on his way to shoot a former employer and when police searched his car, they found an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns, ammunition and news clippings about the mass shooting that left 12 people dead early Friday.
In Norwalk, part of the L.A. metro area, 52-year-old Clark Tabor shouted in the theater: “I should go off like in Colorado.” They said he then asked: “Does anybody have a gun?”
