Warner Bros. has announced The Dark Knight will have an IMAX rerelease in January, so that come voting time, Academy members will remember, oh yeah, there was that Batman movie. From THR:
Warner Bros. wants a statuette -- or 10 -- for "The Dark Knight." So the studio plans to rerelease its blockbuster Batman sequel in January, the height of Academy Awards voting season.
"It's just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people," a studio insider said.
The second run will be a slightly altered cut where the "magic trick pencil" scene is repeated several times and followed by a title that says, "Seriously, did you see that shit? Plus, HE'S DEAD."
