There are a lot of highly anticipated new releases coming to AMC Theatres over the course of the next few weeks and months, but moviegoers will also get a chance to see the return of major releases this fall. In honor of Rotten Tomatoes’ 25th anniversary, AMC Theatres is hosting some fresh big screen bring-backs from the late ‘90s all the way to the current decade.
So, if you missed movies like TOP GUN: MAVERICK, THE DARK KNIGHT, or THE MATRIX during their respective theatrical runs, now’s your golden opportunity to rectify that. Even if you saw these films back in the day, this special return, with its $5 Fan Fave pricing, is more than reason enough to go back and watch them all over again. Please note, these special engagements are limited to one-week runs at select AMC Theatres locations, so make sure to check your local listings…
Top Gun: Maverick
A little more than a year since TOP GUN: MAVERICK flew in and brought millions of fans back to the movies, Joseph Kosinski’s adrenaline rush of an action drama is returning to the big screen for at least one more flight. Set more than 30 years after U.S. Navy Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) graduated from the Top Gun program, the movie follows the renegade pilot as he trains a new class of fighters before they embark upon a seemingly impossible mission.
With some of the most impressive stunts in recent memory, a tremendously emotional story dealing with grief, loss, and redemption, this is a movie you definitely want to see on the biggest screen possible.
TOP GUN: MAVERICK returns September 8th
In May 2009, J.J. Abrams breathed new life into “Space, the final frontier,” with the massively entertaining and eye-catching STAR TREK. This origin story of Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), the Enterprise crew, and the iconic ship itself follows the ragtag group of Starfleet cadets as they set off to take on Captain Nero (Eric Bana), a time-traveling Romulan with an intricate and destructive plan for revenge.
Whether you’re a Trekkie or just a fan of massive sci-fi action-adventure stories, STAR TREK is going to be a fun movie to revisit when it returns to AMC Theatres in September.

The Lego Movie
Have you heard the news? THE LEGO MOVIE is coming back to theatres, and everything is awesome. The massively popular 2014 animated movie is another fan favorite returning to AMC Theatres as part of the Rotten Tomatoes 25th anniversary celebration. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, this absurdly funny, clever, and impactful animated movie follows a seemingly normal minifig named Emmet Brickowski (Chris Pratt) as he becomes the Lego world’s best shot at defeating the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell) from unleashing the Kragle.
This will be especially fun for those moviegoers whose children were either not around or not old enough to watch THE LEGO MOVIE during its initial run nearly a decade ago.

The Dark Knight
One of the biggest superhero movies of all time, as well as a top-tier Christopher Nolan film, THE DARK KNIGHT will be returning to theatres 15 years after it first gave the world an incredible epic that goes beyond the comic book genre. Already established in Gotham City, Batman (Christian Bale) faces his toughest fight yet when the anarchic Joker (Heath Ledger) does everything he can to break the Caped Crusader.
With iconic sequences like the opening bank heist, Batman and the Joker’s showdown on the streets of Gotham, and countless others, there are plenty of reasons to return and watch THE DARK KNIGHT all over again.
