Its distributor, Lionsgate, said Tuesday the film will play in “150-plus” theaters in the United States.
The film, a racial drama that tells the intertwining stories of an array of characters over 36 hours in Los Angeles, originally opened in May, 2005, grossing $55 million domestically.
An overseas rerelease in English-speaking countries is also in the works, a Lionsgate spokeswoman said.
The film has been available on DVD in the U.S. since September. Its theatrical rerelease is “open-ended” pending its performance, said Steve Rothenberg, Lionsgate’s president of theatrical distribution.
In addition to the best-picture trophy, “Crash” won Oscars for editing and original screenplay at Sunday’s Academy Awards.
