Moviegoers will be able to catch the 6-minute 70mm Imax film prologue for Warner Bros’ The Dark Knight Rises beginning December 16 in front of special advance previews in the same ultra-large-format film versions of Paramount’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Warner Bros. on Thursday revealed the names and locations of the 70mm Imax film theaters that will present the 6-minute TDKR prologue ahead of the 70mm Imax film version of Ghost Protocol. In a statement director Christopher Nolan described the shooting and presentation of Imax 65mm/70mm film as “inspiring” and said “the immersive quality of the image goes beyond any other filmmaking tool available. … 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” The Dark Knight Rises when it opens July 20, 2012. The prologue for The Dark Knight Rises will not screen with digital Imax or regular digital or 35mm film presentations of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Regular, non-Imax versions of Ghost Protocol open December 21. The list of theaters follows. Moviegoers should confirm theaters will be playing the prologue for The Dark Knight Rises before purchasing tickets.
