"Dark Knight" goes back to the big screen

Time Warner has announced that they have decided to bring back "The Dark Knight" for a second run on the big screen. The film will re-open January 23rd.

Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution said, "The Dark Knight' is a crowning achievement in every sense of the word. We wanted to provide one more opportunity for moviegoers to experience it on the big screen as it was meant to be seen."

It also doesnt hurt to re-release a major hit movie around the same time the
nominations for the Academy Awards go out.

Re-releasing a film during Oscar season is an old tactic and a good way to renew interest. However does a film this popular need to be re-released? Its not like people forgot they saw it or something.

So far to date the latest Batman flick has earned $995 million both domestically and internationally. Re-releasing it will easily see the film breaking the $1 billion mark and possibly challenging "Titanic" for the largest grossing film ever.

So if you are one of the handful of people that have not seen it yet, or one of the voting members that is considering the film for Heath Ledger's possible posthumous nomination for supporting actor, or even possibly best picture, here's your one last chance to catch it on the big screen.
