Things We Saw Today: The Dark Knight Rises Composer Dedicates New Song to Help Raise Money for Aurora Shooting Victims


Another day, another heart-warming response from the Dark Knight Rises team in the wake of the Aurora shooting. This time it’s legendary film composer Hans Zimmer, who scored the trilogy, who has composed a song for those affected by the tragedy:

“‘Aurora’ is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization.”

You can listen to the song and donate to the cause here. (via MTV)

  • In more upbeat news, the Olympics opening ceremony is today! Here are some rather impressive cupcakes to think about shoving in your face (via Laughing Squid):

  • The is a Little Women graphic novel in the works. You can go here to learn more about the upcoming Kickstarter, as well as more about the project itself.
  • We have been eagerly awaiting Mockingbird Lane, the upcoming reboot of The Munsters by Bryan Fuller since, well, since Pushing Daisies was cancelled. Luckily for us, the first photo of the main cast has been leaked (via Blastr):

And now, for the most impressive, heart-breaking cosplay we’ve seen in a long time. WARNING: Beyond this point lie spoilers for Game of Thrones season two, and A Song of Ice and Fire book two. *SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS* (via Fashionably Geek)

Now we are full of pain.

     Dammit! Communication issue, sorry guys.

    Aurora may be the least feminist of the Princesses, but Sleeping Beauty is one of the most feminist of the Disney animated movies. It passes Bechdel with flying colors and the real heroes of the piece are the three fairies. Even the prince is pretty much helpless without them.

    Yeah, people seem to overlook the fact that the earliest Disney Princesses weren’t the main characters, just important plot pieces. It’s like saying the ring is the main character of Lord of the Rings.

    Very typical assessment of the Disney princesses. I fully expected Mulan, Jasmine and Tiana to be ranked highly and Aurora and Snow White to be at the bottom. And I also expected the usual bickering over Belle, Ariel and Mulan.
