Update On The Dark Knight Rises Prologue

Update On <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i> Prologue

With the news that there will be a six minute prologue for Christopher Nolan-directed film The Dark Knight Rises in front of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, AMC Theatres have confirmed this story plus they offer a brief update...

Last week, Slash Film broke the news that there will be a six minute The Dark Knight Rises prologue in front of IMAX screenings for Brad Bird-directed film Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which will play in IMAX a week earlier before it hits everywhere on December 21. Now AMC Theatres confirms this story plus they offer an update:

"AMC Theatres can confirm that this footage will be shown in front of Ghost Protocol on December 16th. (Ghost Protocol will release in IMAX five days before its general release on the 21st of December.) However...The six minute Dark Knight Rises prologue footage will only be shown on the higher resolution 70mm IMAX screens. Not the digital IMAX screens."

There you go. You will be able to see that prologue only on 70mm IMAX screens.

Starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theatres on July 20, 2012!

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

some theaters have at least one Imax theater. best thing you can do is look online at theaters near you
BooYah - 10/24/2011, 6:34 PM

I am not torturing myself through 2 hours of Tom Cruise for this teaser.
It'll be on youtube the next day free!
NeoBaggins - 10/24/2011, 7:22 PM
They should release a full trailer between now and then. I'll watch the prologue online like the last one.

NextHero08 - 10/24/2011, 7:27 PM
Now thats a reason to go see a movie. We get to learn about what the film is about, why DC rules. Marvel---CRASH, BAM, BOOM! (Insert Joke) BLAH, BOOMAH! (Insert used footage) The Avengers......coming soon. So interesting.

Have to say that my excitement about what DC is going to do with Batman after this movie is much greater than my excitement for this movie.

Seeing what a great actor Bale can be in The Fighter makes me think he should stop raping one of my favorite characters and go make good movies.
Supes17 - 10/24/2011, 7:30 PM
Looks like Batman's always where the action is!

Supes17 - 10/24/2011, 7:31 PM
Yeah I'm sure they'll release the regular trailer on regular theaters. They wouldn't let December pass without at least one theatrical trailer. It should be released around the same time as the prologue, just like with TDK

croniccris - 10/24/2011, 7:35 PM
dang i gotta go to the cinerama to see it....and that place is always packed....fml
headlopper - 10/24/2011, 7:39 PM
I wonder how much Cruise paid Warner's for the opportunity to feature TDKR during his 'thing'. They're not the same studios. He's just using the hype about the teaser to get people to go see his movie. This guy disgusts me.
95 - 10/24/2011, 7:39 PM
Or not. It's a digital projector. [frick] you Brenden Theatres!
chuckg313 - 10/24/2011, 7:44 PM
Im going
EditNinja - 10/24/2011, 8:14 PM
Let's hope it's released online, or just show me the bootlegs!
OptimusPrimeTime - 10/24/2011, 8:26 PM
"There you go. You will be able to see that prologue only on 70mm IMAX screens."..........and online 3 hours after the screening!
