Warner Bros. has announced it will rerelease The Dark Knight to IMAX theaters in January, right smack dab in the middle of Academy Awards voting season.

Warners domestic distribution president Dan Fellman acknowledged ongoing talks with Imax executives about the prospect of restoring the Christian Bale starrer to some number of giant-screen venues in January. It’s uncertain if “Dark Knight” also will reappear in conventional venues at that point.

There’s no question the company is sending the flick back to theaters to garner more attention for votes, but don’t think it is an attempt to make a run at Titanic’s number one spot in the all time box office money makers, as the DVD release of The Dark Knight arrives in December.

  1. I’ll go see it again in theaters. It’s just such a different experience when I can’t afford a decent home theater system.

    And with less than $100 Million left to beat Titanic and it STILL being #3 at the box office, I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that it will beat Titanic.

  2. The nearest IMAX to me is in Sacramento, and I don’t think they had TDK. Hopefully they’ll bring it in this time, as I would love to get to see it on the really big screen.
