Dark Knight ‘eyes Oscar release’

Warner Bros (US) is planning to re-release this summer’s biggest blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight’ during the voting for the Oscars in January.

A studio insider told reporters: “It’s just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people.”

Warner Bros domestic distribution president Dan Fellman said talks were ongoing about re-releasing the film in IMAX venues in the US, but it is not known if the film would return to conventional cinemas.


To date, the film has earned about $513 million in the States and $440 million internationally, including more than $55 million in IMAX grosses. The DVD and Blu-ray Disc are expected to hit stores in December.
