The Dark Knight Heads Back To Theaters January 23rd

Published 5 years ago by

joker rachel The Dark Knight Heads Back To Theaters January 23rdBack in September, you’ll remember we reported that Warner Brothers planned to theatrically re-release The Dark Knight in order to further its chances at next year’s Academy Awards. Well now the studio has officially set a release date: January 23, 2009.

Of course, there’s another (i.e. obvious) reason for this decision. The massively successful Batman Begins sequel is just $4 million away from earning $1 billion at the box-office. And the studio wants their blockbuster to be the second highest-grossing film of all-time worldwide – not that I blame them.

But I just find it silly. The film will roll back out into theaters just over a month after it’s released on home video – where it will no doubt absolutely destroy in DVD and Blu-Ray sales!

Meh – all power to them. When everything’s said and done, the film will end up surpassing The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest as the only film to have made less money than Titanic.

The Dark Knight will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday and grace the silver screens (again) on January 23, 2009.
