Paramount Programs Two Blockbusters into Rare Double Feature

Paramount Pictures wants to give you one last chance to see two of its largest summer movies on the big screen before the season draws to a close. 
 
The studio announced that it will combine Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z into a rare double feature at select AMC Theatres, Carmike Cinemas, Marcus Theatres, Regal Cinemas and other participating theaters nationwide in RealD 3D and 2D. 
 
Beginning Friday, August 30 through Thursday, September 5, the double feature allows fans to relive both films for one ticket price. Tickets currently are on sale, and can be picked up right here
 
Other studios should do this. The double feature – like the drive-in theater – has become a thing of the past. But I think more people would flock to theaters for the opportunity to save a little cash, revisit a movie (or two) that they saw and enjoyed, and just get out of the house before the weather turns or the back-to-school crunch consumes our lives. 
 
Paramount turned both of these movies into seasonal hits. World War Z, in particular, stunned analysts by bucking its negative prerelease press and going on to generate more than $525 million in worldwide ticket sales. 
 
Brush up on both films with the following trailers. And grab a ticket to the double feature today!
