When The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on December 14, moviegoers will be treated to an unexpected preview. (Well, I guess it's not unexpected anymore, what with it being...announced.) Paramount broke the news this morning that the first nine minute of the highly-anticipated, stupidly-titled Star Trek Into Darkness will be shown on around 500 IMAX 3D screens across the United States. That makes it the first preview footage to ever be screened in IMAX 3D, and it almost makes up for the dumbass title! (I'm kidding. It doesn't.) But it is said to be "absolutely incredible," according to IMAX chairman and president Greg Foster, and it is nine brand new fancy minutes of J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek movie that we get to see before it comes out next May. So, get ready to head to the Shire, fellow Trekkies! (via Deadline)
