Films rarely have more than one run in the box office, especially comic book films. Then again, most comic book movies aren't referred to as possible Oscar nominees. Still, The Dark Knight is one of these films, and they're already planning a rerelease.

Apparently Warner Bros. is planning to rerelease the film in hopes that it will generate more revenue and remind Oscar voters of the film during award nomination time.

The film is already the highest grossing movie of the year, and may eventually break the record for highest grossing film of all time. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the story, but didn't provide specific details on how many screens the film would be showing on, or if it would also be shown in IMAX.

Still, even with the rerelease, it's doubtful the film will pass "Titanic." The James Cameron film currently holds the highest grossing film title, at $600 million.
