/Film is reporting that Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol will have the six minute prologue to The Dark Knight Rises attached to it. This is similar to Warner Bros showing The Dark Knight prologue, Joker robbing the bank, with I Am Legend in 2007. Even better, Mission Impossible is playing in IMAX, which means the prologue would be as well.
Curiously, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, a Warner Bros film (MI is Paramount), is opening the same day, 16 December, and is expected to have the first full theatrical trailer for the final Nolan Batman attached. I guess it’s all the more reason to see both films! Too bad there’s only one midnight that night!
Mission Impossible opens 16 December in regular and IMAX theaters. Sherlock Holmes opens the same day in regular 2D. Both films will probably have midnight showings at most theater chains. Exciting! Which of them will you see first?
Also here is the teaser trailer in case you haven’t seen it yet![youtube http://youtu.be/q-Sktgm0aD8]
