TMZ spoke to Davis outside the movie theater at The Grove in L.A. Friday ... we asked him if the Colorado shooting would affect his decision to see Chris Nolan's hotly anticipated new flick.
Davis gave us some words of wisdom about it ... saying that "fools" don't come out until after 9:00 PM so we're safer in the daylight. He also said he'll let his kids watch it -- but only from home.
He added, "It's real sad what happened. I feel sorry for those families out there ... especially the kids."
