If you were disappointed last week by confirmation that the six-minute prologue for The Dark Knight Rises will only be shown with Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol on 70mm IMAX screens, cheer up: It looks as if the new trailer will receive a wider release at the same time.
Fansite Batman on Film reports it’s been “unofficially” told the second trailer for the Christopher Nolan film will debut Dec. 16 with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. That’s of course the same day that Ghost Protocol makes its IMAX premiere (it receives wider release on Dec. 21). The website expects more information “shortly.”
The Dark Knight Rises, which opens July 20, 2012, stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.
