The Social Network is on its way back to theaters
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Sony Pictures has a plan that is either wickedly evil or crazy brilliant. What is this plan you ask? In order to generate as much buzz as humanly possible, they have decided to re-release THE SOCIAL NETWORK in theaters so that every person on the planet has a big chance to see it before it’s made available to the public on Blu-ray on January 11th, 2011. Surely they are just trying to kill two birds with one stone, first by making sure that all the Academy voters know how great their film is, and second so they can pass the $200 million worldwide box office total. Sony will put THE SOCIAL NETWORK back into 600 theaters on January 7th, 2011. Those guys are brilliant.
If you have been living under a rock for the past two months (it’s fine, we know it’s winter) THE SOCIAL NETWORK is leading the pack in nominations and awards across the board as is director David Fincher. Seriously though, the film really is that good.
