College shooting movie due out in April
Its release delayed by the April 16, 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech, Dark Matter– a movie about a disturbed student who kills his classmates by shooting them in their classroom– will see limited release this April. It stars Meryl Streep as a wealthy university benefactor who takes a young Chinese graduate student under her wing. "Obviously [the Virginia Tech shooting] was a long time ago," First Independent Pictures president Gary Rubin tells the Associated Press. "We're not even focusing on that aspect of it at this point. It's a good movie, and we feel it should get out there." IMDB.com reports the movie is due out in limited release on April 11, five days before the one-year anniversary of the Tech massacre and about two months after yesterday's campus bloodbath.
