The Dark Knight is set to be re-released in theaters this January. Just in time for Oscar season! The film has already grossed over $996 million worldwide, and they’re going for round two!
Studio bossed have announced that they plan on releasing the movie in the U.S. on January 23rd, which is the day after Oscar nominations are announced. They’re hoping the re-release will push the movie past the $1 billion mark.
Dark Knight star Christian Bale thinks the film is a shoe-in for Oscar contention.
He says, "The serious contenders in this movie in my mind are Heath, Chris for director because he’s done an extraordinary job, and I do believe Best Picture as well."
Wow! Bale definitely has faith in his own film! What do you think? Is the Dark Knight good enough to be nominated for Best Picture?
