Eyeing to be an Academy Award contender, summer blockbuster flick "The Dark Knight" is planned to be re-released. Words are Warner Bros. Pictures are planning to screen the Christopher Nolan's superhero movie on several IMAX theaters in January when the prestigious event is in its voting season. "It's just a matter of bringing it back as a reminder for people," reasoned an insider over the plan.

Hollywood Reporter noted that Dan Fellman, the domestic distribution president of Warner Bros., has admitted that there are on-going talks between the studio and IMAX executives about the possibility of playing this second highest grossing movie of all time in some number of giant-screen venues. Though it is said that "Dark Knight" is possibly heading back to IMAX, it is still unclear whether it would be outed in the conventional theaters as well.

To date, the Christian Bale and Heath Ledger-starring action movie has collected $512.8 million nationwide and $950 million worldwide. From the IMAX sales itself, it has rung up more than $55 million. Recently, the flick has received 21 nominations, including The Ultimate Scream, Best Fantasy Movie and Most Memorable Mutilation from Spike TV's "Scream 2008".

To Add something new to the moive I think that the re-release of the movie should have Katie Holmes replacing Maggie Gyllenhaal, if possible. (nothing personal Maggie) In my opinion that is the only flaw in the movie (a big one in my eyes). It looses that realism and its hard to believe. Im not her biggest fan nor do I think shes the greatest actress, but movie sequals need the original cast. Plus the death scene would of been more shocking. If they make a 3rd installment it could of gone down as the best trilogy of all time, next to star wars, but that replacment kills it, what if star wars replaced princess Lea in The Empire Strikes Back? or Rocky fought a different Apollo in Rocky II? It would have been weird huh? Thats why I think it should be done.
