Will The Dark Knight Rises prologue be playing at an IMAX theater near you?

12.02.2011

Remember the 6-minute prologue for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES that is supposed to play before MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL? Well, it's been confirmed by Warner Bros. and accompanied by a list of the IMAX theaters that will be playing it.

A press release was issued stating that the film will be released in North America on December 16, and in the UK on December 21, 2011. Additional international dates vary by territory and will be announced soon.

There is also a small quote from Christopher Nolan on the prologue, “Our experience on ‘The Dark Knight’ shooting and projecting IMAX 15 perf 65mm/70mm film was inspiring. The immersive quality of the image goes beyond any other filmmaking tool available, and in revisiting Gotham, we were determined to shoot even more of the movie in this unique format. Giving the fans an early look at an IMAX sequence is a great way to draw attention to what I believe will be an incredible way to experience our story when it comes out next summer.”

Roadtrip!!!

I was initially bummed when the closer (2 hour roundtrip) "IMAX" theater wasn't going to show the TDKR preview but that just means I'm making a roadtrip to Seattle.
6 hours roundtrip for 6 minutes of Bats footage and a movie's worth of crazy Tom Cruise hijinks? I'm f*cking in! I think I have a few of my friends psyched up to go to so this will be officially the most expensive movie I have ever gone to ...
Screw it, I've been looking for a decent excuse for a roadtrip and this will do

Nowhere near me.

Not Kansas City, not St Louis, nowhere in the midwest. Way to fuck over a huge part of the viewing audience.

Sounds like some people just want to bitch.

1. There's not 900 IMAX screens in NA. Not even remotely close.

2. It's not playing on all of those screens because the 42 listed are the only true IMAX screens, the rest are bullshit, smaller digital screens.

3. There aren't 2 screens in Philly, because Atlantic City is most certainly located in New Jersey. The 'writers' here (and at wb) were too lazy to double check.

4. There is a screen in VA, it's right there towards the top of the

Apple Valley, MN. Not only do I hate Apple Valley, but I don't want to see Mission Impossible. Guess I'll just have to wait.

There's 700 IMAX screens in north america, and the Dark Knight Rises footage is only showing on 35 of them. This is fucking stupid, why isn't Nolan putting the footage on all IMAX screens?!?

Atlantic City isn't remotely the Philadelphia area, its a good 90 minute drive with no traffic. They should have just called that one the Atlantic City viewing. And aside from the White house/Capital building area DC is every bit as dirty as Philly.

huh?

I could've sworn there was a list of theaters a while back when this was first announced that had many more theaters showing the preview...
I'm one of the lucky ones since I'm in NY so none of these are absurdly out of the way, but it would be nice if this was a little more accessible for everyone to benefit. I mean it's not like we're dealing with the biggest blockbuster of next year or anything ::rolls eyes::

if anything I hope this drives home the point that most people are getting

if anything I hope this drives home the point that most people are getting shortchanged at all of the faux-Imaxes out there. I still don't know why Sony would go through all of the trouble to develop the tech and then whore out the name to theaters that can't live up to it...

Really? Why so limited? So if I want to see this preview I have to go to SF? Why not just send it out to all legitimate IMAX theaters. If you want to ramp up people's interest, put it in as many IMAX theaters as you can. At least, that's what I'd think you do if you want to entice people even more.

That is utterly ridiculous that it's not playing in every city. The footage is just going to end up on the internet anyway, so why not let every have a chance to see it for real.

It's playing near me, but I have no interest in going. Not because I don't want to be spoiled, but merely because I don't really want to see it at all. Not really my style. But to those who want to see it, I truly hope you enjoy it.

Before it was an issue finding local Imax theaters, now content made for Imax theaters will be released to 10% of them??? This should be release in all Imax theaters or there is no point in releasing it.

Kind of mad that this is only going to certain Imaxs. It makes me wonder if the imax scenes we are supposedly seeing and paying extra for all this time are we actually seeing it how its meant to be seen? More movies are being released in Imax every year but if it s a digital imax, are we getting what were paying for??

Thank god for directors like Nolan who have integrity, I bet the studio hounded him to turn TDKR into a 3D crapfest. Trust in Nolan indeed...

because it's only in the 70mm format, IMAX's that show digital (or in other words FAKE IMAX's) won't be getting it, a lot of IMAX's are labelled IMAX but aren't really true IMAX in terms of the size and the projector.

the reason they probably did this was because they didn't have time to convert it
