The margeting genius behind this one deserves a raise.
Seems attached to the IMAX premier of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol will be 6 minutes of footage from The Dark Knight Rises - a full seven months before the movie debuts.
Slash Film has it on good word from a source that works in the theater biz that Ghost Protocol will have attached to it The Dark Knight Rises "Prologue" footage, and they have updated with independent sources verifying.
Look for the IMAX debut of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on December 16th, as it premiers in IMAX five days before the December 21st release date.
Previously, footage of The Dark Knight debuted with I am Legend.
