UPDATE: WB Still Planning The Dark Knight Rerelease

Earlier today, we received solid word that Warner Bros. Pictures was dropping its plans to rerelease The Dark Knight in theaters in January.

But to our surprise, the studio told us later in the day they are still moving forward with the rerelease and that IMAX should be sending out an official announcement soon.

The Christopher Nolan-directed film has earned $996.1 million worldwide and should easily be able to surpass the $1 billion mark with the rerelease.

The year’s biggest blockbuster hits DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Tuesday, December 9th.
