We know a lot of people out there were disappointed with the Watchmen movie. As countless sources have pointed out, the movie that cost nearly $150 million dollars to make only grossed $56 million in its opening weekend. But even for those of you out there who didn’t enjoy the film, you have to admit that it wasn’t that bad…

One 24-year-old man from Eugene, Oregon might have disagreed. As KMTR NewsSource reported today, patrons of the Valley River Regal Cinema heard “a ‘popping’ noise like a gun” just after midnight during a screening of the superhero flick. Patrons notified theater management, who stopped the film and called the police. When the police arrived, they found an unnamed 24-year-old in the back of the theater with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The person sitting closest to this man in the theater was only two rows in front of him.
All reports of the incident indicate that it was a suicide, and no information has been released on the identity of the deceased. The other ten people in the theater were refunded their money.

We could make a joke about the grim reality of life imitating art, or “die-hard” Watchmen fans, but honestly the more we think about this whole situation the less funny it becomes. We’ll try to keep updating you as new information is released.
