“The Dark Knight Rises” prologue will be attached to IMAX “Mission: Impossible”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Months before Christopher Nolan released “The Dark Knight,” he gave fans a sneak peek of the sequels opening minutes, which consisted of Heath Ledger’s Joker knocking over a Gotham bank (and systematically eliminating the members of Joker’s crew one clown at a time).

Not one to mess with tradition, Nolan appears ready to screen the opening minutes of his “The Dark Knight Rises” when “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” opens in theaters in December.

While “Impossible” is a Paramount movie (as opposed to Warner’s “Dark Knight”), Brad Bird’s Tom-Cruise-led sequel also utilizes IMAX technologies and is equipped to carry the footage Nolan is shooting for his sequel. SlashFilm, which broke the story, is saying that the footage will be a six-minute prologue, similar to the way clips were attached to the front of “I Am Legend” back in 2007.

It worked the first time, right? There’s no reason not to tease “Rises” for fans. Nolan isn’t giving anything away too early. And the notion that too many teases will hurt business down the road is ludicrous.

No doubt the “Dark Knight” fans planned to check out Bird’s “Impossible” sequel in theaters. This move could prompt many to pay extra to see it in IMAX, the way Nolan intends.

Or can you be patient and just see “The Dark Knight Rises” in its entirety next July?
