Joker laughed its way first to and then onto the red carpet for awards season with Â this week. Now the sobering supervillain story is coming back to theaters for a rerelease Jan. 17.
On Monday, Warner Bros. Pictures announced that the rerelease will cover 750 cinemas across North America. The studio trumpeted the movie’s critical reception and awards nominations, which includes a nomination for the Best Picture Oscar.
Joker rode a magnetic performance from Joaquin Phoenix to become the first R-rated movie to rake in $1 billion on the global market. This rerelease will pad those numbers as fans return for another go-round or curious new viewers show up to see what the Oscars fuss is all about.
Get ready for a fresh round of dancing Joker memes.
