Star Trek XI in IMAX

I can’t guarantee that this film is going to be any good, but one thing is for certain: J.J. Abrams is a marketing genius! And being a Star Trek fanboy that’s a good thing because one does worry how long you can make the series last. There was a time a few months ago where I would bemoan the fact that Lucas was so much better at pushing Star Wars than Paramount was with Star Trek, but with J.J. on the case I no longer have to worry about that:

J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Headed to IMAX Next Summer!

“If things couldn’t get any better then they were, it looks like J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek will be showing in IMAX theaters next year. While it wasn’t necessarily shot with IMAX cameras, the film will be converted to 70mm for projection on IMAX screens. Star Trek will hit both regular and IMAX theaters everywhere on May 8th next summer. It looks like IMAX theaters will have a very busy summer, with Star Trek kicking things off in early May, followed by Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Fueled by the immense success of The Dark Knight last summer, Hollywood has really ramped up their IMAX offerings for next year.”

Just think about it — even if the film is average you just know you’re going to want to see it in IMAX just to watch the spaceship battles!
