Last week it was reported that the first 6 minutes of The Dark Knight Rises would play before IMAX showings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. AMC Theatres just reported some good news and some not-so-good news. The good news, the movie chain has confirmed that there will be a The Dark Knight Rises prologue shown in front of Mission Impossible. The bad news? The footage will only be shown on the higher resolution 70mm IMAX screens. Not the digital IMAX screens. Here’s an excerpt from AMC’s exclusive 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.)
The six minute Dark Knight Rises prologue footage will only be shown on the higher resolution 70mm IMAX screens. Not the digital IMAX screens. Locations haven’t been confirmed yet, so stay tuned for an update on AMC Theatre locations that will be showing the prologue Dark Knight Rises footage at a 70mm IMAX screen nearest you.
Stay tuned to Batman-News.com, I’ll try to make it easy for you to find the closest 70mm IMAX screen. In the meantime, hopefully Warner Bros. will release a press release making this official news “officially official”.
