The Dark Knight Rises: Prologue app is exclusive for Nokia Lumia phones and shows events before the movie
Despite the tragic events in Colorado on the opening night of The Dark Knight Rises, the film has been box office gold for Warner. Additionally, some of the success of the last film in The Dark Knight trilogy might rub off on Nokia as its Lumia line of Windows Phone powered models has had exclusive accessories and apps released, related to the movie. There have been special editions of certain models like the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900

Now that just about anyone who has wanted to see the film has been to the theater, Nokia Lumia users can exclusively find out what happened to the characters prior to the beginning of the movie. The Dark Knight Rises: Prologue app is a special type of comic called a "motion comic" as the images scroll and pan right on the screen of your Nokia Lumia device. At 52MB, the app is pretty hefty, but is well worth it for Batman fans.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, it is still ok to view the app; Remember, as a Prologue, the scenes and dialogue from the comic take place before the action in the movie occurs. If anything, viewing the app before you see the film might help you better understand the movie.

The Dark Knight Rises: Prologue is available from the Nokia Collection in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

I love and like the N9, more than these phones above.
Will be watching the movie soon.

My only two big questions are about the Dent act and the Joker's fate. Other than that, mostly everything else is pretty well understood in the movie.

Of course the new Lumia devices will have Dual-core processors and even Quad-core eventually, it´s a no-brainer!. Why wouldn´t they have that on their new devices????? In fact, WP8 can support up to 64 cores, so at this point everybody should know that.

Why is it exclusive to one device that has only seen a little success in the US? Would have made more sense to release it onto devices that have done well and have more of a presence in the marketplace like the iphone or something so everyone can enjoy it.

If you knew anything about the history of the Nolan Batman films you would know why. Nokia has had a major partnership with Warner over the movies since The Dark Knight, at least. It's like Iron Man and LG. In fact, when the Dark Knight came out Nokia had a special edition flip phone for Verizon.

So? It would have made more business sense to release it on devices that are in more consumer hands.

You don't think it's possible that there is a multi movie contract involved?

I know its possible. I just think its silly.

Yeah, it's silly, but it's part of whatever marketing deal they have. I mean, Nolan never seemed keen on really promoting brands through his movies anyway, which is one of the reasons I like him. As good as Iron Man was, at times it felt like I was watching little more than a parade of commercials for LG Verizon phones and Audi.

As a matter of fact, their desire for product placement resulted in an obvious flub, when Tony Stark uses an LG VX9400 to talk to Obadiah, WITH VIDEO, IN FU.CKING AFGHANISTAN.

It was stupid, is what I'm saying.

The movies represent two different types of superheroes obviously. What did you expect them to do use a made up crappy phone? I've seen both movies and none of them seem at all like obvious product placements.

I am saying it was stupid as well.

Yeah, why not do so? Or at least use a global phone that would actually WORK in Afghanistan.

And the placement isn't as glaringly obvious as it was in the 70s, but it was still pretty bad. Every car is an Audi. Every phone is an LG Verizon phone.

Oh you mean like the Droid that you love so much? Yeah sure that wouldn't be product placement at all. /sarcasm

Ok Sniggly.

I didn't say using a different product wouldn't still be product placement. It would just not look stupid.

I'd rather see a Nokia phone on the movies than an iphone....if Batman would've used an iphone, i would've stop watching the movie right there.

I never see Bruce Wayne/Batman even hold a NOKIA phone in the movie. the last phone i think I remember was a LG that was part one
