As reported by The Hollywood Reporter today, Warner Brothers plan to re-release Batman-The Dark Knight in January just before the voting for the Academy Awards starts.
“It’s just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people,” a source told the trade.
In my opinion, with the amount of money and hype this film has made i don’t think anyone will EVER need to be reminded again about how awesome The Dark Knight was. But maybe this is their way of securing a couple Oscar’s. If it is then fair game but i really don’t think they need to do it. The Blu-Ray/DVD is planned to be released in December.
