AMC Theatres Confirms The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Prologue

Posted October 26, 2011 11:10 AM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.After much speculation, the AMC Theaters chain confirmed that Warner Brothers' six-minute The Dark Knight Rises prologue will debut in IMAX this December. The extended look at director Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated superhero epic will precede showings of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

This decision to promote The Dark Knight Rises in such a fashion mirrors how the studio built up anticipation for The Dark Knight. Prior to that earlier film's Summer 2008 release date, the opening six minutes of the film - which introduced audiences to Heath Ledger's Academy Award-winning interpretation of the Joker - were attached to 70mm IMAX screenings of I Am Legend in December 2007.

Audiences will be able to view the Dark Knight Rises prologue when Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol makes its IMAX premiere on December 16th.

Note: The Dark Knight Rises IMAX footage will not screen at IMAX Digital locations but rather in theaters equipped for IMAX 70mm.

That sucks that it will be seen only in film projected Imax screens, because I don't think there is one of those within like 500 miles of Utah.

I know the closes IMAX to us is probably within 250 miles, and I'm not sure if it's Digital or 70mm. Either way... road trip!

i'd rather wait and see the whole movie at once. i can wait. just good incentive or bonus to get people to see possibly a crappy sequel?

Just wait it will get leaked on the internet day 1, save your time and money else where. Especially if you have to suffer through another mission impossible sequel.

YES!!!! My area IMAX (Prov., R.I.) "IS" one of the REAL Imax theaters with 70mm Screens (which I thought so anyway, but the link above just confirmed it). Now I need to fire off an email to them & see if they have info on showing the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL film, so I'll know they'll also have the 6-minutes from TDKR. Sweet!

@jkcheng122 - I just realized my state does not have a single REAL IMAX screen according to that link. Weak.

Scratch that, one apparently does according to the second link, but too far away.

ClaytonMG, digital IMAX is still IMAX. I work for a digital IMAX theater and trust me, the picture and sound are as REAL as any IMAX you've seen elsewhere... ;o)

Surely the prologue will be on the internet shortly before or after MI 4 (or is it 5?) releases. Save your money.

I saw the Dark Knight prologue before I Am Wretched at a local Regal Cinema, so I figure Dark Knight Rises will also be playing there. We'll find out in a month and a half.

"Dellamorte13

I'm sure it will be, but watching a YouTube bootleg doesn't quite compared to seeing it projected on an IMAX screen.

Good times. I remember going to see "I Am Legend" and being very excited to see that and the 5-minute bank robbery clip (opening) from "The Dark Knight." That was a fun day!!

What's even cuter is how people keep bashing MI sequels, when this is like the 18th Batman movie and will probably be as middling as the last one. Oh well.

Wasn't this in the news yesterday? We already knew this. Fake IMAX screens (smaller screen, digital) were not getting the Batman preview, only real IMAX screens (full 6 story tall screen, film) were. Having AMC confirm this info, I thought someone from AMC was saying "wait, all our fake IMAX screens will have the preview too" but it sounds like that is not the case. Only real IMAX screens will be showing the preview, so nothing changed.

I am sure this will cause some real confusion around release time. Lots of people will be paying extra for the "IMAX" version and then find that they are getting the fake version with no preview. I remember there being a map on the internet of all the fake vs. real IMAX locations across the US when the brand started showing up at AMC theaters. Hopefully that thing is still out there somewhere for people to check.

I'm guessing they don't want the clip to leak so they are keeping it in a physical format that can't easily be pirated and put on the net.

Thank You

"...interpretation of the Joker..."
Oh please, it's a comic book character, not Hamlet.

I go to the movie theater to watch movies, not movie commercials. Some trailers are great, others bearable, but many are nothing more than ads further delaying the movie you came to see.

Funny, but I live less than a mile from AMC's future HQ and there isn't a theater that will be showing this within 250 miles.

In other words, not many people will see the prologue because the majority of 15-70 IMAX theaters are in museums.

I can wait for the movie to come out next summer. I have no interest in seeing Mission: Impossible. After the first movie insulted the tv series so massively I have never seen another MI movie in the theatre.

nomadic76, yours is a digital screen, which means it was probably one of the converted 35mm screens. I believe the aspect ratio is 1.9 or 2.0 for those which would mean it would be cropped and the resolution is lower than a true 70mm IMAX screen.
