If you’re trying to squeeze in some Oscar-nom screenings before the award show takes place on March 4, then it's time to head on down to your local theater. Nominees Get Out and Dunkirk are other returning to theaters ahead of the Oscars, according to Entertainment Weekly, so fans of the film and virgin viewers once again have the opportunity to enjoy them on the big screen.
It’s been almost a year since Jordan Peele’s horror flick opened in theaters. Get Out debuted on February 24 and was a massive box office success up until its close in July. Dunkirk was released July 21 and left theaters in November. Starting Friday, both of the films will return to select theaters nationwide.
After being snubbed and miscategorized at the Golden Globes, Get Out racked up four nominations for the 2018 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor. Dunkirk snatched eight nominations for Best Picture, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and others.
This year, AMC theaters are also hosting best picture showcases on February 23 and March 3. These events will allow viewers to watch all the Best Picture-nominated films during a 24-hour movie marathon or over the course of two Saturdays. Starting Monday, AMC will be screening all nine Best Picture nominees at 500 locations nationwide.
After the nominations were revealed Tuesday morning, history was made. This year is the first time that a woman has ever been nominated for the Best Cinematography category and that a transgender director was nominated for an Oscar.
