Warner Bros. will re-release "The Departed" on no fewer than 1,300 screens tomorrow, looking for that post-Oscar nomination bounce.
With five nominations, including for best picture and best director for Martin Scorsese, the studio hopes to build on the $121 million the film already took in from its initial release in October.
If you have already seen the film (and even if you haven't) you might want to check out "Infernal Affairs" the taut Honk Kong thriller which forms the basis for "The Departed." Andy Lau and Tony Leung play the men working as moles inside the police and a triad gang. It's a great examination of the fine line between good and evil.
