'Star Trek' footage will arrive exclusively in IMAX theaters next month. The 'Star Trek' sequel was partly filmed using IMAX cameras.
Sci-fi fans are still eager to discover what J.J. Abrams and writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof have done with the sequel to 2009 Star Trek reboot, which we now know will be titled Star Trek Into Darkness. Abrams jokingly premiered a single frame of footage from the film during a recent talk-show segment – but we’re pretty sure that annoyed more people than it amused. After several delays and a thick fog of mystery clouding things, suffice to say that Trekkies the world over are starving for some substantial reveals.
Well, that hunger will soon be sated, as we now learn that an extended preview of Star Trek 2 will be shown to moviegoers in December 2012 – and it will showcase the film’s new digital IMAX 3D format.
Check out the official press release from Paramount:
