‘Dark Knight Rises’ Prologue to Play Before New Mission Impossible In Select Theaters

Want to get an extended sneak peak at “The Dark Knight Rises?” Want to see the New Mission Impossible movie? Warner Bros. confirmed today that the six-minute opening sequence from Christian Bale’s final Batman movie will play before “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” in select theaters.

Warner Bros. said in a statement:

“Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises,” the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, is one of the most anticipated films of 2012, but moviegoers won’t have to wait until next year to see the six-minute opening sequence of the film.”

MTV reports that the “Dark Knight Rises” prologue will show the movie’s 6-minute opening sequence. Warner Bros. has decided to show the preview before “Ghost Protocol” and only on screens using true 70mm IMAX projection. Meaning that the Dark Knight sneak peak will only be shown on 42 theaters in the United States and Canada.

Here’s a teaser for “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Christopher Nolan said:

“Our experience on ‘The Dark Knight’ shooting and projecting IMAX 15 perf 65mm/70mm film was inspiring. The immersive quality of the image goes beyond any other filmmaking tool available, and in revisiting Gotham, we were determined to shoot even more of the movie in this unique format. Giving the fans an early look at an IMAX sequence is a great way to draw attention to what I believe will be an incredible way to experience our story when it comes out next summer.”
