Audiences who missed out on "Birdman" the first time around are in luck: The newly-minted Best Picture Oscar winner is returning to theaters this weekend.

According to TheWrap, Fox Searchlight is expanding the film to 1,000 theaters beginning this coming weekend in celebration of its big win at Sunday's Academy Awards. The dark comedy also collected statuettes for Best Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), Best Original Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.

"Birdman" made $26.6 million in its initial domestic release last fall, eventually ticking up to $37.7 million when Searchlight re-released it in select markets in January, capitalizing on its nine Oscar nominations. The flick has also made $39 million overseas.

The Best Picture winner is also currently available on DVD and VOD.
