I’m really looking forward to the last Batman film in Chris Noland ‘s trilogy, and the marketing machine at Warner Brothers starts their push for dominant position in the summer blockbuster race. They finally confirmed the 7 minute IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight Rises will appear in front of 70mm IMAX copies of Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol opening December 16th in the US and Canada, December 21st in the UK. They also released the list of IMAX theaters that will get the preview. Director Christopher Noland had stipulated that only true IMAX 70MM film theaters will get the prologue. Apparently there are some IMAX screens that are actually blown up digitally projected images and thus the picture quality isn’t even close to true IMAX presentations. Below is the list of theaters getting the preview via The HD Room :
And yes, both Greater Vancouver IMAX screens are getting the preview
Hope To See You There.
Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
