Trek App Offers Early IMAX TicketsPosted by T'Bonz - 04/02/13 at 09:02 am
Two things were offered to fans who downloaded the Star Trek into Darkness app and used it during last night’s Super Bowl.
Fans were treated to a slightly longer Super Bowl Star Trek into Darkness ad, and the news of an early IMAX release for the movie.
The ad on the app is five seconds longer than the official one, with the only real new thing being an extra shot of Kirk.
The big news was that fans eager to see Star Trek into Darkness who have an IMAX theater nearby won’t have to wait until May 17th, but can see the movie on May 15th at 8 PM.
“As we saw with the reaction to the first nine minutes of the film, which debuted in our theaters in December, fans are clearly excited by the opportunity to see this epic film come to life in Imax,” said Imax Entertainment chairman and president Greg Foster.
Tickets can be ordered through the app. For those who don’t have the app (like this reporter on whose phone the app refuses to work), just head to Fandango’s website and order tickets to the IMAX showing there.
