Many media sites and select industry people were invited to a screening of the Dark Knight Rises Prologue tonight. Super Hero Hype posted a summary of what takes place in the prologue:
Even though the opening shot takes place immediately after The Dark Knight and features Commissioner Gordon speaking at Harvey Dent’s funeral (and is shot in 35mm), the footage moves immediately to IMAX and the events that transpire during the hostage situation discussed in the viral documents. There, we’re treated to a hostage transfer and the reveal of Bane aboard a private plane and an ensuing fight that takes every advantage of the IMAX frame. Think less The Dark Knight and more Inception or, even closer, an IMAX version of a James Bond film.
Twitter also blew up with many industry comments like Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright
