9 Minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness to be Shown Before The Hobbit

The first nine minutes of the Star Trek sequel will screen before next month’s huge release The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the filmmakers want to show audiences how they’ve used the IMAX 3D format to create something really special. Personally I’m excited as I loved what J.J. did with Star Trek in 2009.

“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.”
