Brad Bird's The Iron Giant returning to theaters with two brand-new scenes

Brad Bird's classic animated fable, The Iron Giant, lumbers back into movie theaters this fall in a remastered "Signature Edition" equipped and enhanced with two spankin'-new scenes.  Since its release in 1999, The Iron Giant is one of the most acclaimed and well-loved animation features of all time and news of its big-screen revival, if only for a brief two-night tribute, makes us stomp for sheer joy! 

This limited return to theaters is being promoted and organized by Fathom Events and specific locations and ticket sales will be available here next month.  A special Blu-ray release of this chest-pounding, in-theater engagement will be rolled out later this fall following its triumphant flight back onto the silver screen.  Save us a good seat!

Here's the official Warner Bros. press release:

The Iron Giant: Signature Edition arrives to theaters for a special event screening on Wednesday, September 30 at 7:00 PM local time, with an encore event in select markets on Sunday, October 4 at 12:00 PM local time. The ticket on-sale date and theater locations for “The Iron Giant: Signature Edition” will be announced this August online at The event will be presented in select movie theaters around the country through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

Are you psyched for The Iron Giant's Hollywood homecoming and another chance to absorb its retro sci-fi charms?
