'The Social Network' Will Be Returning to Theaters on January 7th

If you haven't had the pleasure of sitting in a movie theater to watch David Fincher's engaging story of Mark Zuckerberg and his creation of Facebook in The Social Network, you'll get one more chance before the Oscars. In an effort to create even more awareness and buzz for the critically acclaimed, generation defining drama, Sony Pictures has decided to release the film back into 600 theaters on Friday, January 7th. By Deadline's estimates, the second theatrical run should push the box office over $200 million worldwide (the film is about $3 million shy right now). Personally… I wouldn't mind seeing the film for a fourth time!
Yes, I did love The Social Network enough to think about seeing it yet again (you'll see how much when my Top 10 Films of 2010 is posted later this week), but for those who can't make it to theaters, the DVD and Blu-Ray release of the film hits shelves next Tuesday, January 11th. And if you're like me, and you loved The Social Network, then you should probably go pick it up at Amazon. They have it priced lower than anyone with the DVD version only $12.99 and the Blu-Ray priced at $16.99. And don't forget to check out the slick new awards centric website for the film as the awards season heats up. Will you see The Social Network again in theaters?

I wish everyone would stop talking about this fucking movie. It was a good movie, that's it. Andrew Garfield is the only part of the film that, I would say, is worthy of all the hype -- he was amazing and deserves an Oscar nomination, but the film itself was very middle of the road. I found it engaging but it is maybe, just barely, in my top 10 of the year.

See, that's the funny thing about opinions: People tend to like different things about. Stop whining and deal with it.

I'm with Sparky10. The minute I saw this article I thought, "why?". Also, whenever this movie is brought up, the phrase "generation defining" also comes up. Excellent movie or not, does this film really define our generation? (That is a straight-up question for anyone to answer) I just cannot bring myself to watch this movie. Maybe I'll break down and hit the theatres this Friday...

Wish it was coming near my town.

I'll probably give this a watch in theaters since I missed it the first time. Also, you know a movie is good when people are already hating it because of the hype.

There are movies that one sees in the theater...and movies that one watches in the comfort of their own home. This is, or will be, the latter.

I think it's Oscar chances may backfire after the rerelease.

This movie wasn't Fight Club good or anything... Obviously flogging it into the ground in hopes of academy awards, even though nothing about it was Oscar-worthy.
