Hot Diggity! More Darko for All …

— Posted by John Campea

Donnie Darko just may be the finest debut film that I’ve ever seen. It released at exactly the wrong time (the plane engine dropping through a teenage boy’s roof didn’t play particularly well in the aftermath of 9-11) but has deservedly developed a strong cult following and according to CNN that’s enough for Newmarket Films to give a theatrical run to a new directors version of the film that runs a solid 20 minutes longer than the original.

Hopefully this time the theatrical run includes Canada. Bubba is pleased. Bubba is very, very pleased.

"History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quite deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood. However, history remembers me before I was a President. It shall only remember a fraction of the truth."

— Benjamin Walker as Abraham Lincoln from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, 2012
