Warner plans January theater re-release of 'The Dark Knight'

I know this isn't necessarily relevant but it's certainly exciting!

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is planning on bringing back "The Dark Knight" to theaters in January for an Oscar push. While the DVD is on track to be released in December, just in time for the holiday season, this will help boost the movie's overall box office numbers, although it would be mighty difficult to top the $1.84 billion "Titanic" racked up over the span of 1997 and 1998.

This is exciting news, only because "The Dark Knight" is worthy of Oscar buzz and I hope that it does score multiple nominations. It was by far the best summer movie and maybe even one of the best of the entire year. Hopefully the Academy will recognize that.
