Yes, Warner Bros. studios continues to tease you more and more. We’ve already seen leaked images of various shots, Anne Hathaway in a maybe Catwoman costume and much more, but now you will get to actually see a REAL part of the highly-anticipated third film in the current Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises, a few months before its 2012 debut. However, there is a catch. The film’s few minutes will be shown at 70mm IMAX screens before the airing of Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, another installment in the Tom Cruise-starring film series.
December 16th is the date for the release of Mission: Impossible, a few days before it hits release in general theaters. It’s a clever strategy, as the company did this for the last release, The Dark Knight, by attaching it to a guaranteed hit with the Will Smith as lead I Am Legend. Whatever is revealed in those first six minutes will surely be rehashed, analyzed and salivated over, leading to next summer’s release of the film in its entirety.
