    IMAX would be a really great way to see it again, I am sure it will continue to draw huge crowds and add to its overwhelming success. I hope Heath gets the Oscar nod too, well deserved. Phenomenal role.

    Well Jo-anne we have had this conversation long ago, I will admit his performance was good, oscar good, NO….if he were to win it would be a pitty oscar witch would be more of an insult to is death.

    My only problem with the Joker role was, he seemed a little gay(flamboyant)like Johnny Deep in Pirates. just didn’t seem right, oh an before you get off topic with the “gay thing bc I know how you like to do that…..I could care less if gay/striaght, it just didn’t fit the “crazy” role

    Re-releasing it? Really? Hasn’t WB ever heard of “too much of a good thing?” People have been talking non-stop about this movie since the beginning of the year. Do we really need another reminder of the fact that this movie may be Oscar worthy? My vote is no. They’ve already made HUGE dollars with the success of the movie, which they deserve because the movie was fantastic. However this “re-release” feels like a lame attempt to soak it for every dollar it can bring in. Unless they decide to throw in some brand new footage I’m going to sit this one out.

    I agree with Marvel Man – it’s just another money grab. I was actually disappointed with the movie, other than Heath Ledger’s part. It was too long and it was quite frankly boring. Over Hyped! Perhaps they had to fill in space with talking, because of Ledger’s death, although I believe I heard he had finished the movie just prior to his death. That role took too much out of him and an Oscar is probably in the works, but I think it may be a pity Oscar. (Who wants to win one that way)!

    definitely not a pity Oscar, should it happen for Heath.

    hang on, let me ask those who contrinuted to the over 500 million dollars the movie brought in…it may take me some time, be patient

    sorry, all that creative genius behind The Dark Knight gets me going and I know it won’t be long before the Spelling Queen/King jumps on a spelling error

    Nah, we’d never do that Jo Jo….pick on your measly little spelling error. We’re too busy pointing out what a b!tch you are to everyone on here!!

    I saw The Dark Knight first in digital cinema and then later watched it again in Imax, because the fight scenes were supposed to be filmed in Imax.
    Only part I saw that was filmed in Imax was the opening scene.
    Not worth seeing again in Imax since Imax cost more.
    Anyone who has not seen it yet, not only should because Heath Leadger is amazing as the Joker and it is good movie, is probably waiting for the dvd or has bought the pirated version. You already made over 950 million dollars why squeeze us for more with this one good film instead of making the other crappy films better.

    P.S Max Powers. I am gay and did not see The Joker as gay in anyway in The Dark Knight. Thought he showed a crazy psychopath very well.
