See Nines Minutes Of Star Trek Into Darkness With The Hobbit In IMAX

Star Trek

It’s been done before with The Dark Knight and I Am Legend, and again with The Dark Knight Rises and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. So since it worked out so well for those films, it’s being done yet again with Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. What is it they’re doing, you ask? Giving a little preview of a movie when you see the other one in IMAX!

On December 14, if you go to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX 3D, you’ll be treated to the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel to J.J. Abrams’s 2009 reboot of the Star Trek universe. While IMAX previews have been done twice before, this is the first time it’s being done in IMAX 3D, if you’re into that sort of thing. The film will feature sequences filmed with IMAX cameras, so just like The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, so these first nine minutes are probably one of those sequences.

Of course, that would assume you’d want to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX 3D, when the movie wasn’t shot in IMAX, so it wouldn’t be better (and may be possibly worse) to view it on a bigger screen. If anything, you’d want to hunt down one of the few theaters in the US that offers the movie at 48 frames per second instead of the usual 24. I also feel like that should be avoided, but that’s another discussion entirely. The point is, you should really only see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX 3D if you really want to get a sneak peak at Star Trek Into Darkness. Personally, I’m fine with waiting for the actual film release on May 17, 2013.
