Donnie Darko to receive 15-year anniversary re-release in theaters!

03.01.2017

Oh man, this brings me back. DONNIE DARKO was high school Damion's shit, and having re-watched it somewhat recently, I have to say it definitely holds up. It's beautiful to look at, the performances are great across the board (including a pre-fame asshole Seth Rogen playing a bully), and I dug the David Lynch-lite vibe of the whole thing. Hell, I even enjoyed director Richard Kelly's follow-up SOUTHLAND TALES!

So it's awesome to hear that Kelly himself has supervised a recent 4K transfer of the film, to be re-released in theaters in select cities for its fifteen-year anniversary. Here's a trailer for the restoration:

In 30 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, 12 seconds, DONNIE DARKO's 4K restoration - both the Theatrical Cut and the Director's Cut - will start to be released in select theaters across the country. Here's a complete list of the showings:

Extra Tidbit: The scene where Donnie and his friends shoot beer bottles and talk about Smurfs was supposed to be Donnie shooting stuffed Smurf toys - they even got permission from the creator. However, on the day of shooting, they couldn't find any, so they shot the aforementioned beer bottles instead.

The fact that this isn't coming to Toronto, as yet, kind of pisses me off. But then I see its the theatrical and not director cut and it takes some of the pain away.
