The Weinstein Company said today it’s putting Lee Daniels’ The Butler back in theaters this Friday, December 6, for those who missed it on the big screen the first time around. Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and David Oyelowo star in the story of White House butler Cecil Gaines (Whitaker), who serves during seven presidential administrations between 1957 and 1986. The pic has grossed over $115 domestically since its August 16 release.
