The sleeper hit of 2001, the sci-fi film Donnie Darko, is being re-released in theaters in L.A. and N.Y. at the end of March.
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Donnie, a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.
The film co-stars Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Noah Wyle, and late great Patrick Swayze.
Director Richard Kelly has brought back the film in a 4K restoration along with both a theatrical cut and a longer director’s cut. The theatrical cut runs 113 minutes and the director’s cut runs at 134 minutes.
The film will premiere on March 31 at these theaters:
