The Dark Knight will be re-released in U.S. theaters on January 23 — one day after the announcement of this year’s Oscar nominations and, incidentally, one day after the anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death. The extra shows will surely bump the film’s box office gross to over a billion dollars globally. It has only made $996 million to date, which is really not enough. Just three other films have hit a billion: Titanic, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. We’re wondering if you, as a human being and therefore the likely recipient of a Dark Knight DVD later this month, would still attend a theater screening for posterity’s sake.
