'Star Trek 2' gets extended IMAX trailer

November 15, 2012|By Adam Lukach, @lucheezy | RedEye

In an attempt to seduce movie-goers into paying that extra IMAX money, Paramount Pictures will release an extended nine-minute preview of the new "Star Trek Into Darkness" movie in about 500 IMAX theaters around the country.

The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel will be released in May 2013, but some viewers will get an extended look at some of the IMAX footage beginning Dec. 13. Other franchises, such as Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and "Tron" in 2010, have used this IMAX-only trailer format before.

"Darkness" returns with first film's crew entirely intact, including Abrams, the writing staff of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and the cast, which includes Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Zachary Quinto. Damon Lindelof of "LOST" fame lends a writing assist on this sequel.
