Details On Release Of <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i> Prologue; New Trailer Confirmed For Christmas

Christopher Nolan's visual effects guru Paul Franklin has confirmed several previously reported details about The Dark Knight Rises prologue as well as a fair few new ones. Read on for more.

Paul Franklin has worked with director Christopher Nolan on all three Batman movies, and took to Twitter earlier today to address fan questions in regards to the highly anticipated release of the six minute The Dark Knight Rises prologue with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol next month. Confirming previous reports that it will only be available in 70MM IMAX theaters, he also revealed that the first full theatrical trailer will indeed be released this Christmas. Below are a selection of his Tweets, where Franklin also discusses the release of the full movie next July.

The Dark Knight Rises IMAX prologue will be released on Dec 21 with M:I4, but *only* in theatres with a proper film projector - no digital!

So make sure it's a proper 70mm projection otherwise you'll be disappointed!

However, the full movie will be shown in IMAX digital theatres, so it's not all just for the lucky few in London.

No - it'll be shown on the digital screens too in the summer, but if you can see it in 70mm it'll be worth the effort.

You'll be able to see it in digital IMAX when the movie gets released next year. Plus there's a regular trailer out at Xmas.

A full list of 70MM IMAX theaters in the US can be found HERE. Also confirmed above is the fact that the prologue will be released in the UK. There's currently no word on whether the prologue will be released officially online, but it seems increasingly unlikely. Stay tuned for more details and sound off with your thoughts below.
