Have yet to see this year’s much-talked-about, award-baiting David Fincher film, The Social Network? Well, you’re in luck: Sony has announced that the Facebook-centric movie — starring Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake — will be re-released in about 600 theaters across the country on Jan. 7. It’s good news for impatient filmgoers — the DVD hits stands just four days later, on Jan. 11.

It’s also a good move on Sony’s part, since a re-release of the film — which first headed to theaters way back in October — will only serve as a memory refresher for awards voters. Not that the film necessarily needs any help. The Social Network has already picked up over a dozen awards for best picture, including recognition from the New York Critics Circle, the National Board of Review, and the Satellite Awards. The film is also nominated for a best picture Golden Globe, while Eisenberg and Garfield have picked up acting nods. (Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin are nominated for Globes as well.)
