Following the decision to cancel the Paris premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises," the movie's stars, Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, hopped aboard a private jet yesterday at a private airport.

Warner Bros. has also canceled appearances by the cast scheduled for Mexico and Japan.

The film's director, Christopher Nolan, released a statement yesterday that read in part, "Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of 'The Dark Knight Rises', I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community ... Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."
