Paramount and IMAX will be re-releasing a digitally remastered version of ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ on Friday, August 26, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

After being remastered with proprietary IMAX technology, the film will play at 246 IMAX theaters for a two-week run.

The film recently crossed the $1 billion mark and is currently #5 on the list of all time biggest box office grosses (see the Top 10 list below).  ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ only took 37 days to cross that threshold. Still in theaters, the film has taken in $348 million domestically and $748 million internationally for a total of $1,097.3 billion. This total now puts it roughly just $20 million dollars behind the #4 box office champ ‘Lord of the Rings:ROTK’. Being that close may have prompted the re-release fever for director Michael Bay.

Here’s the Top 10 list:

1. ‘Avatar’ $2,782.3 billion
2. ‘Titanic’ $1,843.2 billion
3. ‘Harry Potter ATDH Part 2′ $1,267.6 billion
