6 minute DARK KNIGHT RISES prologue will screen before MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL in IMAX

It has been confirmed today that a six-minute prologue to The Dark Knight Rises is being attached to all IMAX prints of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. In further good news, Ghost Protocol opens exclusively to IMAX five days before its general release (December 21). Both Christopher Nolan and Brad Bird shot extensive scenes for each movie in IMAX, making it their format of choice for exhibition. I was already on board for Ghost Protocol, but this news will have me there at the first available session! Warner Brothers did a similar move back in 2007 when they attached the opening six minutes of The Dark Knight to I Am Legend in IMAX. While the Will Smith film ended up being a disappointment, it was absolutely worth attending the midnight screening for the awesome Batman preview. I saw both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight at IMAX twice and I can testify that it is the ideal format for Nolan’s epic trilogy. (via Slashfilm)

I didn’t think another Mission: Impossible film was necessary when it was first announced; Tom Cruise doesn’t have the same appeal as an actor (or person) as he had when the J.J. Abrams-directed third film in the series was released back in 2006, and he hasn’t made a good film since (excluding his Tropic Thunder cameo). But I’m intrigued to see what director Brad Bird, who is known for his wonderful animated films (The Iron Giant, The IncrediblesRatatoullie), can do with a big-budget action film. I’m also impressed with the wonderful supporting cast he has gathered, with Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames returning alongside Tom Wilkinson, Josh Holloway, Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner, who is rumoured to be taking over the franchise following this film.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol opens in New Zealand on December 15th. Watch the trailer below.
