Mission: Impossible Gifted Dark Knight Sales Boost

The IMAX screenings of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has been given a gift that will surely boost the sales. AMC Theatres has confirmed that the movie will get an IMAX only six minute prologue from The Dark Knight Rises. The chain further confirmed that the prologue is only for "real" IMAX theatres that take the 70mm film, not the digital IMAX that have popped up of late in modified theatres.
