Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

I'm kind of curious as to whether or not this will be a general or wide release (the article seems to emphasize IMAX cinemas) and what, if any impact this will have on the DVD release date. By the way I'm putting my money on 8th December for that.

A comic book movie has a long, uphill battle being nominated for the Academy Awards. And, regardless, I don't think The Dark Knight should be nominated, perhaps outside of Ledger's performance. It was good, but it was not great. And I fully expect the sea of 'Oscar bait' movies to have more than a few more worthy entries.

Not that the Oscars have ever been about what is worthy. It's politics, and the politics of business. So this might work.
The Oscars also seem to like to give nominations to movies no one's ever heard of. Usually, box office success hurts movies because they want to go the look-at-how-knowledgeable-and-cultured-about-movies-I-am-with-my-selections route. Though Titanic was an obvious exception, and I'm still not sure why A Few Good Men and Ghost were nominated.

If they snub an artist for truly outstanding work, sometimes they award him or her the Oscar for lesser material.

Well, it looks like Warner Bros. will be re-releasing the film in January so that it has a chance for Oscar consideration.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

Hmm...I wonder how well it will do for a re-release. I know movies are re-released still do decent business, but considering the DVD is being released the previous month...would today's general movie goer or the home theatre enthusiast (which is becoming bigger and bigger) be as willing go see it on the Big Screen?

^ Agreed. I think that the two weeks prior to the DVD release would have been a better choice.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

I think a big indicator will be if they can re-release it in IMAX, which is what they're currently trying to do. I am not sure if I would see the film again in a conventional theater, but I would absolutely love to see the film again in IMAX, since I even know friends who weren't able to see it would like to see it in that format.

^ I'm not too sure if they'll be able to. Since IMAX is such a limited format I know that they have to schedule those films extremely well in advance (I'm talking about 9 - 12 months in advance).
