    With Confessions of a Dangerous Mind already set for a theatrical re-release later this year, Miramax now intends to re-release Chicago (with an 'additional scene'!) this July.

    I got this news as an email blurb from Variety's website.

    Interesting...

    I assume that additional scene would be Zeta-Jones & Latifah singing "Class"??

    Chicago has been out of first-run theaters in Houston for only a month or so here in Houston. Seems awful soon for a re-release.

    It's still at one of the AMC first-runs in Columbus. It's not that odd to do a re-release so soon, it's just a first for Miramax for such a big picture AFAIK. Sure, the other films that have had re-releases in such a short time have never added scenes AFAIK, just outtakes and previews.

    Spy Kids had a scene added later in its release, right? (That's essentially a Miramax film since it's from Dimension.)

    I think Miramax is doing this, in part, because it seems like they've pushed everything in their release schedule into October or later. Gotta have something to send to theaters.

    Chicago's *still* in first-run theatres here in the DC area... If they do rerelease it (with "Class" inserted), I'll defintiely see it. [​IMG]

    I love Chicago but I think this is greed.
    Does the movie need to make more money???

    Release the DVD with the extra scene.
