Warner to re-release ‘Knight’ Jan. 23

Film could become fourth to gross over $1 bil

Warner Bros. will re-release “The Dark Knight” on Jan. 23 in a nationwide launch, guaranteeing that it will become the fourth film to take in more than $1 billion in worldwide box office.

“Knight” has cumed $530.3 million domestically and $465.9 million internationally, leaving it less than $4 million short of the billion-dollar milestone. Only “Titanic,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” have topped that mark.

“Knight” also is the second-highest domestic grosser of all time, trailing only “Titanic.”

The re-release will come six weeks after the DVD launch of “Knight,” set for Tuesday.

Dan Fellman, president of Warner’s domestic distribution, made the announcement Thursday. “We wanted to provide one more opportunity for moviegoers to experience it on the bigscreen as it was meant to be seen,” he added.
