The Dark Knight Rises ’ viral marketing campaign continues apace today with the release of a new document referring to something called Operation Early Bird.
Coming hot on the heels of the two documents released yesterday , the new information was released via the viral Twitter account @thefirerises . Much of the information is again blacked out, but from what we can tell, Early Bird refers to a Special Forces operation to extradite Dr. Leonid Pavel.
As if that weren’t enough to get us all excited, a new website has been set up bearing the name Operation Early Bird , in which a clock counts down to 6pm this evening.
Hopefully by then we’ll have a better idea of what all this subterfuge is about, and just how the good doctor will fit into Nolan’s movie.
The Dark Knight Rises is released in the UK on 20 July 2012. In the meantime, here’s the latest document for you to pore over…
UPDATE: Well, at the stroke of 6pm yesterday, Operation Early Bird revealed itself as a high-tech map, detailing IMAX locations worldwide where screenings of The Dark Knight Rises ‘ prologue will take place next week.
Unsurprisingly, tickets have been snapped up fast, but there are still a few locations remaining – get in quickly if you want to revel in 6 minutes of IMAX goodness.
If you can’t get tickets for one of these screenings, you’re next best chance is to catch Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol at an IMAX venue capable of projecting the full 70mm experience, as the prologue will be playing as an epic sorta-trailer then.
