Spoilers With Kevin Smith | Aurora’s Dark Knight

On his Hulu’s summer movie appreciation show Spoilers, Kevin Smith usually hosts a lively, free-wheeling discussion about that weekend’s big movie with a live studio audience that had just seen the film. This week’s episode was supposed to be about The Dark Knight Rises; instead, Smith chose to spend the entire half hour talking with his audience about the deadly shooting at a midnight screening of the film in Aurora, Colo.

“This is a show about loving movies,” says Smith in the introduction. “Movies mean the world to us. This thing that happened, this shooting, it’s not only offensive to us as human beings, it’s offensive to us as movie fans.” The thoughtful, somber discussion, held on Friday night, provides a poignant snapshot of the thoughts running through many moviegoers’ heads this weekend. Check it out in its entirety below:
