Six minutes worth of prologue footage from The Dark Knight Rises will air before showings of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, it has been confirmed.
However, it will only air in IMAX cinemas that possess high-resolution 70mm screens.
US cinema chain AMC said in a statement: "The six-minute Dark Knight Rises prologue footage will only be shown on the higher resolution 70mm IMAX screens. Not the digital IMAX screens. Locations haven't been confirmed yet, so stay tuned for an update on AMC Theatre locations that will be showing the prologue Dark Knight Rises footage at a 70mm IMAX screen nearest you."
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is released on December 16, with the final part of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy hitting cinemas on July 20, 2012.
