‘The Dark Knight’ Returns to IMAX in January
Warner Bros. has already scheduled a re-release for The Dark Knight in January, designed specifically to influence Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voters. Warner is working with Imax to have the film play on several of their screens during the crucial voting period, to remind everyone the summer blockbuster was also a critical darling.
"It’s just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people," a studio insider told The Hollywood Reporter.
Prognosticators have put director Christopher Nolan and the late actor Heath Ledger on their lists of potential nominees.
The film will be released on DVD in time for Christmas although details have yet to be released.
