“The Dark Knight Rises” prologue preview screens in L.A.

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Christopher Nolan let Batman geeks open their Christmas gifts early this year, revealing the “Dark Knight Rises Prologue” that will be attached to “Mission: Impossible” next week to journalists and studio guests in Los Angeles Thursday night.

Specific details are forbidden – and really, you’ll want to be relatively unspoiled when you see the footage for yourself next week – but we can tell you that the prologue is very similar in nature to the bank heist that opened “The Dark Knight,” which served as an introduction to Batman’s chief antagonist, The Joker (Heath Ledger).

This time out, the intro takes place in a plane, and will set up Tom Hardy’s Bane, Batman’s foe in “Rises.” Though the sequences sound similar in nature, they’re vastly different and, according to all accounts, take full advantage of the IMAX technology Nolan used to film his anticipated sequel.

The prologue is not without fault, however.

The prevailing attitude after the screening suggested that Bane’s dialogue – perhaps due to Hardy’s accent, and perhaps due to the fact that the character wears a mask over his nose and mouth – was unintelligible.

Nolan did admit to the problem at a post-screening reception, telling THR that there are points in the movie where the viewer might not get every line. Expect the director to try and clean the audio up in post, however, or possibly bring Hardy back in to re-record lines that are inaudible.

For now, the “Rises” prologue will be attached to IMAX prints of Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible” on Dec. 16. And a full trailer for the film is expected to be released online later today. Stay tuned, Bat fans!
