Donnie Darko Returns

Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut

Fans of Richard Kelly’s great sci-somethingorother film Donnie Darko may be pleased to learn (as I was) that it’s being re-released with more music, extended scenes, and new visual effects.

That’s right, it’s Donnie Darko: The Director’s Cut. The trailer is really excellent. Now if I could only find out where it’s playing.

MovieTickets.com seems to think it’s coming out on July 23rd but doesn’t have any theater information yet. Yahoo! Movies has a page for it but it doesn’t come up in their search results.

This interview with the director has the usual lines about why the film is back in theaters.
