Plus: Christopher Nolan talks TDK with IGN.

The much-ballyhooed IMAX intro to The Dark Knight has had its premiere screening — and IGN Movies was there to tell the tale!

The six-minute intro, which will be attached to IMAX screenings of I Am Legend starting December 14th, was unveiled Wednesday night, and IGN Movies has posted the details. We won’t share ’em all here, but let’s run down a few of the high points:

1. It begins with the first few minutes of the film, which introduce Heath Ledger‘s Joker to the audience.
2. A bank heist is involved.
3. William Fichtner sighting!
4. Explosions! Gunfire!
5. It ends with a series of clips of Batman in action.

To read a more detailed rundown, click on the first link below — either before or after you click on the second link, which will lead you to IGN‘s in-depth interview with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan. Don’t expect a ton of new information — Nolan’s no dummy — but nestled among the expected quotes (Heath Ledger’s performance will amaze us, Nolan isn’t concerned with the Justice League of America movie, et cetera), you’ll find a few interesting tidbits, such as:

We never wanted to do an origin story for the Joker in this film. The arc of the story is much more Harvey Dent’s; the Joker is presented as an absolute. It’s a very thrilling element in the film, and a very important element, but we wanted to deal with the rise of the Joker not the origin of the Joker, if that makes sense.
