The overwhelming ticket demand for a special sneak peek is causing Paramount Pictures to move up the release date of 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' Additionally, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy star in a hilarious new Audi ad.
Paramount Studios representatives said today, "IMAX theatres have been reporting sell-outs of its special Star Trek Into Darkness sneak peek shows on Wednesday, May 15th – with showings in Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Houston, San Diego and Minneapolis now at capacity." Star Trek fans are being offered the opportunity to be the first to see the film at 8 p.m. on May 15th. It appears that interest in the film continues to be so overwhelming at the other IMAX locations across the North America, in response, Paramount Pictures has moved the film’s Friday, May 17th release up a day to May 16th.
Tickets are available on the film’s first-of-its-kind movie App, a technology that allows users to delve deeper into the Star Trek universe, and can also be accessed via IMAX.com or through Fandango.com, Movietickets.com, as well as other ticketing platforms and at theatre box offices. While supplies last, all 8:00 p.m. IMAX fan sneak attendees will receive a limited-edition IMAX FANFIX Star Trek Gallery 1988 movie print by Mark Englert.
The IMAX release of Star Trek Into Darkness will feature approximately 30 minutes of footage filmed with the extremely high-resolution IMAX cameras. These specific sequences, which will expand to fill more of the screen exclusively in IMAX, will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch star in Star Trek Into Darkness.
Star Trek Into Darkness now opens in theaters everywhere May 16th, 2013.
To help promote even more excitement about Star Trek Into Darkness, Audi has just released a hilarious new video, title "The Challenge," featuring the original Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy, and the new Vulcan, Zachary Quinto.
Nimoy and Quinto have remained friends since Zachary began preparing for his role in the first Star Trek reboot. Their closeness made the Audi spot a fun time for the two old pals to meet again on the screen. "Leonard and I have spent a number of times hanging out and talking about just life and about the character," Quinto revealed. "Just getting to know him, personally, was incredibly freeing and helpful in the process of creating Spock for me. I also made a life-long friend in the process."
