Welcome to the January Fan Art roundup, the first entry for 2012 in our series of monthly write-ups showcasing fan art relating to the work of Christopher Nolan. Each month we comb through the fan art submissions on our Forums and our Tumblr page, then we collect the half-dozen or so pieces that are getting the most feedback to share them here in these roundups. So what does this month’s roundup include? We have beautiful new Batman Begins inspired 2D digital art, an epic recreation of the The Dark Knight Rises IMAX prologue score, and some very creative The Dark Knight Rises inspired videos, posters, and pieces of art.

On the latest episode of the Nolan Fans Podcast, Teddy and Alex talk with guest hosts Mike Eisenberg and JC Blass about the 6-minute IMAX prologue and the theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. Coming in at a record length of 90 minutes, we get into a wild, tangent filled discussion about everything revolving around Christopher Nolan’s last entry in his Batman trilogy. We advise you not to listen if you haven’t seen the IMAX prologue… or Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Ides of March, Deathly Hallows Part 2,Marley and Me or Superman Return for that matter. Yup, spoilers for various movies are all over this podcast.

On the latest episode of the Nolan Fans Podcast, Alex and Teddy chat with guest host Mike Eisenberg (The MovieMash.com) about the new Bane poster for The Dark Knight Rises, the upcoming full length trailer, the viral marketing campaign, and the 6-minute IMAX prologue. For those of you weary of spoilers, don’t let the title confuse you. This podcast was recorded before any of us had seen the prologue, and we don’t discuss the descriptions that had already been published. If you need something to pass the time while waiting in line for the prologue or trailer late Thursday night, download our latest episode and give us a listen! For those interested, we’ll likely be recording a spoiler-heavy prologue review episode over the weekend.

After the viral marketing campaign for The Dark Knight Rises kicked into gear on Wednesday and Thursday, fans found a mysterious viral site for “Operation Early Bird.” The countdown displayed on the front page of OperationEarlyBird.com counted down to 1pm EST/10am PST — or basically, right now. There was much speculation as to what would be revealed at the end of the countdown. Would it be a poster? A trailer? Another viral video?
Well if you guessed either of those, you guessed wrong. Located on OperationEarlyBird.com is map with a form for coordinate entry. Located on TheDarkKnightRises.com is an audio player announcing coordinates. The coordinates, when entered, point to various IMAX theater locations. These locations are mostly the same 70mm IMAX theaters we listed the other week, with a handful of new additions, but now they’re playing screenings of the prologue 3 days early, and for FREE! On December 13th at 10pm locally, advanced screenings of the prologue for The Dark Knight Rises will be happening across the country. To get your tickets, go to OperationEarlyBird.com and click on the location nearest you.
This is a disappointment for those who don’t live anywhere near a 70mm IMAX location. At the very least, all of us gathered for a giant collective experience. We smashed our online user record on the forums. And is it me, or did one of the voices handing out coordinates sound suspiciously like Emma Thomas?
