After nabbing an impressive 11 Oscar nominations, Joker is coming back to the big screen for a second theatrical release. Director Todd Phillips and leading actor Joaquin Phoenix‘s superhero masterpiece is scheduled to return to 750 screens across the United States starting January 17, in recognition of its highly successful awards season sweep.

“With the continued interest in Joker as a result of its recognition during this exciting awards seasons, we wanted to give audiences the chance to see the film on the big screen, whether for the first time or again,” Warner Brothers distribution head Jeff Goldstein said in a press release.

Joker is leading the 2020 Oscars with nominations in categories like Best Actor, Best Director, Best Picture, Best Cinematography and Original Score. The film recently won big at the Golden Globes, taking home Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for Phoenix and Best Original Score – Motion Picture for Hildur Guðnadóttir.

“Joker began as an idea, an experiment really — could we take an “indie approach” to a studio film by inverting it into a character study to reflect the world around us? Explore what we’re seeing and feeling in society, from the lack of empathy to the effects of the absence of love,” Phillips said in an Instagram post to celebrate its Oscar nods. “I am deeply honored by the overwhelming recognition of the Academy this morning, and I want to thank the genius that is Joaquin Phoenix, and all my incredible collaborators. We are beyond humbled that our peers in the filmmaking community have embraced the film and its message.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, the Safdie Brothers and Adam Sandler’s Uncut Gems is coming to Netflix.
