Warner Bros. have their eyes set on swooping up some Oscars this year with the “Dark Knight”, so they’ve announced that Christopher Nolan’s epic sequel in the Dark Knight series will return to IMAX theaters in January to remind voters of how awesome the movie was. There was no mention of re-releasing the film in regular theaters, though.
Of course, WB just wants to ‘strike while the iron is hot’ and make some loot. It’s also safe to say that they’re gunning for “Titanic” as the highest grossing film of all time, which made $1.84 billion in its reign of tyranny. Thus far the “Dark Knight” has raked in $512 million domestically, $440 million internationally, and over $55 million from IMAX screenings.
Who’s going back to see it in IMAX? I’ve seen it twice in IMAX (three times total) and will definitely go back in January.
