The Dark Knight Rerelease

The Dark Knight to Get Another Round in Theaters, January '09

Even though The Dark Knight has gone above and beyond the line of duty at the box office, earning an estimated $512 million domestically, Warner Bros. has announced it will get a re-release in January 2009. The Hollywood Reporter notes:

Warner Bros. domestic distribution president Dan Fellman acknowledged ongoing talks with IMAX execs over the prospect of restoring the Christian Bale starrer to some giant-screen venues in January. It's uncertain if Dark Knight also will reappear in conventional venues at that point.

January, eh? Also known as: Oscar season!

So, what do you think? Over-hyped and political? Or yay? The DVD will already be out in December, though I still haven't seen The Dark Knight in an IMAX theater as many times as I'd like, so this might be fun come the new year. Also, a re-release could certainly help the movie beat Titanic as the biggest earner ever.

Yes, it's indeed over-hyped and political.

Yay! IMAX was totally worth the price. I rarely paid to see a movie in the theathers. But the Dark Knight was totally worth it.

Totally unnecessary! They should bolster the DVD to increase DVD sales instead. If this film truly deserves an Oscar nom, it will get one.

I never got to see The Dark Knight in IMAX, so I guess it could be a good idea. I don't know if I will if the DVD comes out before that. I'd probably just buy the DVD and keep it at that.

First Harry Potter is delayed until July, now the WB is trying to milk more cash out of the Dark Knight in 2009 too? These money grubbers are just looking to improve their annual fiscal reports.

Ironically they did this with Titanic as well and look how many Oscars it won. That said, I don't think anyone who has seen this movie will have any problem remembering it. Just give me the DVD for Christmas and I'll be happy.

well i'm sure that a lot of people will go to see it again for a fresh watch. i just mentioned to my man that i'd see it in IMAX a 2nd time - but that's probably the only way that i would pay to see it again. it was great - but i shouldn't throw money away like that.
