Last night, press in Hollywood were treated to a special presentation courtesy of Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan – a preview of The Dark Knight Rises prologue, scheduled to play in 70mm IMAX theaters before Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol starting December 16th.
While those lucky enough to see the footage have been tight-lipped (at Warner Bros. request), little reactions have been published and the overwhelming response is that the short prologue was awesome (SPOILERS).
Nolan, while speaking with /Film, revealed that he is early in the editing process, but expects TDKR to have about 50 minutes of complete IMAX filmed footage.
The Dark Knight had 26 minutes of IMAX footage and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will have about 25 minutes. As filmmakers continue to work with the format, audiences will be the lucky recipients of these exciting endeavors.
