'Star Trek Into Darkness' Opening Earlier than Expected
Did you download the free Star Trek Into Darkness app for your smartphone? Did you use it during the Super Bowl Sunday TV spot?
If you did, then you likely already know that J.J. Abrams’ sequel will be opening two days earlier than announced. The new date is Wednesday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and it will screen exclusively in IMAX 3D.
Fans who used the interactive app were given a link to download tickets to the early shows, giving them exclusive access to the first tickets for the anticipated sequel.
“As we saw with the reaction to the first nine minutes of the film, which debuted in our theatres in December, fans are clearly excited by the opportunity to see this epic film come to life in IMAX,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Entertainment. “We're thrilled to work with our long-standing partners at Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures to offer audiences an opportunity to see J.J. Abrams' masterful interpretation two days early in the world's most immersive format – IMAX 3D.”
It’s not too late to download the app, which will boast interactive games and challenges that will unlock more exclusive content and opportunities as Paramount leads up to the release of Star Trek Into Darkness. Get the app, follow along, and prepare for Abrams’ second Star Trek chapter.
