‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Bow Moved Up

Paramount Pictures just announced it is shifting the official wide-release date of JJ Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness from Friday, May 17 to Thursday, May 16 noting that sellouts are being reported for IMAX’s sneak-peek 8 PM shows Wednesday. IMAX screenings offering up about 30 minutes of footage shot with IMAX cameras are sold out in LA, NY, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Houston, San Diego and Minneapolis. The release date of the pic, from Paramount and Skydance, already had gotten a bump in the UK, where last month it was shifted up a week to May 9 in IMAX 3D, 3D and 2D cinemas.
