The Internet is wrong—again: The Dark Knight returns (to theaters)

batman_returnsWe should just make this a regular feature: Despite the recent fanboy bitching that Warner Brothers was “dropping its plans” to rerelease The Dark Knight to theaters (despite its release on DVD next Tuesday) in order to bolster its Oscar chances and to pass the $1 billion mark, yes, in fact, it will be coming back, to both regular theaters and IMAX.

“Solid word,” huh? That (and this) is why you don’t repeat rumors from articles with no real sources named as if it is real news, Internet. Superhero Hype‘s original article was quickly amended, but now we’ve got an official press release (courtesy /Film):

“THE DARK KNIGHT” RETURNS TO THE BIG SCREEN ON JANUARY 23RD

THE WIDELY ACCLAIMED HIT WILL BE RE-RELEASED IN THEATRES AND IMAX.

BURBANK, CA, December 4, 2008 – Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing “The Dark Knight” back for a return engagement in theatres and IMAX on January 23, 2009, giving audiences one more chance to see the film on the big screen. The film will re-open nationwide, it was announced today by Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution.

In making the announcement, Fellman stated, “‘The Dark Knight’ is a crowning achievement in every sense of the word. We wanted to provide one more opportunity for moviegoers to experience it on the big screen as it was meant to be seen.”

[blah blah blah…]
