It was announced this morning that Paramount will be screening the first nine minutes of the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness movie before the new Hobbit movie opening on December 14th....
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.
“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.”
As excited as I am to see the new Star Trek movie, I don't really want to see the first nine minutes and then have to wait five months to see the rest of the movie.
I'd rather see a trailer and be intrigued to see the film, not see an actual portion of it.
Plus, I am not planning to see the Hobbit movies in IMAX 3D (unless I love it so much in "regular D" that I decide to see all of the formats). Other than Avatar, I haven't really been impressed with 3D technology...so, I'll wait for those reviews.
So, I'll just wait until the trailer comes out...or until the nine minutes end up online (which never happens) and I accidentally see it there.
