It looks like Warner Brothers is planning to give Joker a limited re-release in cinemas now that the movie's gotten so much attention from 92nd Academy Awards.
This week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released its full list of nominees for the 2019 Oscars and to the surprise of everyone, Joker managed to take the lead by glomming 11 staggering nominations – the most number of nominations that any film's earned this year. This includes nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.
Now, according to a new press release, Warner Brothers is planning to rerelease Todd Phillip's controversial yet highly successful character study of Gotham's Clown Prince of Crime. Starting this Friday on January 17, Joker is going to be re-released in more than 750 movie theatres right around the United States.
Warner Brothers haven't specified whether the rerelease is going to last the weekend or whether it's going to run until the Academy Awards broadcast on February 9, so DC fans who haven't seen the film in cinemas should take the opportunity to head down to their local theater to watch Joker on the big screen. Fans who've seen the film and want to review it again before the Oscars should also head down and check the movie out.
It would be great to review a movie that's earned DC its very first Best Picture nomination at the Oscars.
Joker is currently available on Blu-ray, 4K UHD, DVD, and Digital HD.
