DENVER — The film studio that released the Batman film playing during the Colorado theater shooting is among the donors that have given a total of nearly $2 million to a fund set up for victims.

Warner Bros., which released "The Dark Knight Rises," gave an undisclosed amount to the GivingFirst.org fund. The fund was set up to help victims of the theater attack and their families. A donation also was made by Legendary Pictures.

A Colorado state release said Tuesday the fund had reached nearly $2 million. State officials did not say how much was donated by Warner Bros. or Legendary Pictures, and how much was given by individual donors.
