‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Preview In IMAX This December

This is certain to excite a few people.  While I am a Star Wars guy through and through, I certainly cannot deny that Star Trek is one of the things that will get the masses excited, especially now that J.J. Abrams had a hand in reinvigorating the franchise with his 2009 reboot.  So for anyone asking themselves, “Hey, where’s the sequel at already?” here is the chance to find out what is in store for them, as a 9-minute sneak preview will be arriving in IMAX 3D theaters on December 14th.  This should be especially nice for those already planning on seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on opening night, as they will be getting this special bonus with their film, much like how The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises were given the same treatment.  The Star Trek footage will be the first 9 minutes of the highly anticipated film and it will be exclusively shown in Digital IMAX 3Dtheaters worldwide on that date.  Continue on to find the full press release with all the details. Now Updated with the First Official Poster,

The first 9-minutes FROM THE ANTICIPATED SEQUEL WILL BE RELEASED EXCLUSIVELY IN DIGITAL IMAX3D THEATERS WORLDWIDE

HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 14, 2012) – Paramount Pictures will release the first 9 minutes from J.J. Abrams’ eagerly-awaited “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” exclusively in IMAX 3D months prior to the film’s official release in May 2013.  This first-look at the movie will play in approximately 500 digital IMAX 3D theatres beginning December 14th.

“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS,” the sequel to Abrams’ 2009 hit film that redefined the Star Trek universe for a new generation, marks the first time exclusive footage has played in IMAX 3D and only the third time a first-look will be released in IMAX.

“Our longtime partners J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and the Bad Robot team have really hit it out of the park – the footage is absolutely incredible,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment.  “Their use of the IMAX® Camera and canvas is sure to impress current and future Star Trek fans alike, and we’re thrilled to once again work with our friends at Paramount Pictures to offer this extended ‘first look’ at this highly anticipated summer blockbuster.”

To further the IMAX experience, “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” used IMAX cameras to capture several sequences. Exclusively in IMAX theaters, sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution cameras will expand to fill more of the screen with unprecedented crispness and clarity, putting moviegoers right into the explosive action and vast scope of the film.

“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” is written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and directed by J.J. Abrams.  Abrams is producing with Bryan Burk through Bad Robot Productions, along with Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci.
