Today Paramount updated the official site to include a list of IMAX theaters in the USA and Canada which will be featuring the first 9-minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness along with IMAX 3D screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. You can see the full list at startrekmovie.com/imax.
You should note that not every IMAX theater showing The Hobbit will also be showing the Star Trek preview so make sure you check that list before buying your tickets. The preview will be showing with the "Digital" IMAX 3D theaters. About 20% of IMAX theaters use traditional film, but those will not be participating in the preview. A spokesperson for IMAX explained why to TrekMovie, saying "This is because there is not enough capacity on IMAX’s film platters to include any additional content (including trailers) ahead of the movie."
For fans around the world, TrekMovie is told that select IMAX Digital Theaters globally will be showing the 9-minute Star Trek preview with The Hobbit. UPDATE: A list of international IMAX theaters showing Trek preview is available at .IMAX.com (scroll down).
Bear in mind this 9-minute preview will not be made available online, so to see it you have to go see the Hobbit in IMAX 3D at one of the participating theaters. But as we have been reporting there will be another teaser trailer (1:50 in length) which will be shown in theaters (Domestically) with non-IMAX screenings of The Hobbit. That teaser trailer will be made available online on Monday December 17th.
IMAX also tweeted out this poster variant for the special Star Trek event.
