Batman 2: Electric Boogaloo.
Missed Batman in the IMAX? Shame on you! Want to watch it now, then again later? Well your prayers have been answered, The Dark Knight has planned re-release for January in an attempt to capture the dollars of adoring fans wanting a double theatrical dip after the DVD hits in December. However the primary intent is to bring the attention back for Academy voter's minds.
"It's just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people," a studio insider said.
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.
Directed by Christopher Nolan, the film's huge commercial and critical success has spurred talk of possible Oscar nominations for its director, producers and cast -- most specifically Bale's co-star, Health Ledger, for the late actor's edgy performance as the Joker.
