'Star Trek Into Darkness' Footage Will Sneak Before 'The Hobbit'
The first nine minutes from the film will play in Imax 3D theaters across the country ahead of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
Paramount will sneak the first nine minutes from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness before Peter Jackson's December tentpole The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in about 500 Imax 3D theaters, the studio said Monday.
Abrams used Imax cameras to capture several sequences in the sequel, which opens May 15.
The Hobbit, from New Line and Warner Bros., opens Dec. 14.
“Our longtime partners J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and the Bad Robot team have really hit it out of the park," said Imax Filmed Entertainment president Greg Foster. "The footage is absolutely incredible."
Star Trek Into Darkness was written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Abrams is producing with Burk, Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci. The Star Trek reboot grossed $385.7 million worldwide in 2009.
