Can’t wait for the movie!! Unfortunately I still haven’t seen any promotions here in The Netherlands… :-(

April 18, 2013 2:58 am

I still have tickets to a Thursday 2D screening at 11am that I found through the mobile app. I hope the listing is legit, because I’d really like to see the movie before the official opening day AND avoid having to see it in 3D.

April 18, 2013 3:08 am

Loving the Mazda ad.

No big displays but the Hype are giving tickets out daily to the Sydney premier next week.

I only found out yesterday you can enter as many times as you like. I may have to block out a day and keep entering.

So for the Aussies. http://au.thehype.yahoo.com/competitions/win-star-trek-into-darkness-premiere-tickets/-/16488806/

April 18, 2013 3:09 am

I apologize. I just read that the entries for that competition are now closed.

“AND avoid having to see it in 3D”

Oh my….

April 18, 2013 3:18 am

My local multiplex has the old poster off in a corner and a piece of printer paper taped over it saying they’re selling for Thursday the 16th. Just sayin’

April 18, 2013 3:23 am

Event Cinema’s where the premier will be held will be giving away ten double passes. This comp just opened a few hours ago


April 18, 2013 3:52 am

Yeeeaaaah, not going all the way to NJ for a Thursday show (the closest Cinemark theater). It’s just 14 miles but the bridge has a toll and my cinema is 5 minutes away. I’ll wait for my local Regal listings. I hope they’re up soon. :(

April 18, 2013 3:55 am

Speak of the devil. My Fandago app is now showing a listing for the Regal near me. 8pm on Thursday, May 16th for 3D. No midnight?

The Mazda is driving by the Caltrans District 7 building which you can see in the trailer when the saucer is crashing.

April 18, 2013 7:11 am

So are we going to Spock drive a Mazda in the movie now? I just remember the groan-inducing Nokia product placement from the first movie.

April 18, 2013 7:24 am

13 – The lens flare windshield feature would make you wreck long before that.

So having R2-D2 in ST09 would that now be considered product placement.

What’s going on with the viral marketing? Any changes to the “Are you the 1701?” thingie?

April 18, 2013 9:03 am

Acer are doing a Star Trek promotion now. Just come up on twitter.

I always thought the best tie-in possible would be one with Apple considering how Star Trek fore saw a lot of apple tech (and the apple store bridge) oh well.

Mazda: Yet another boring auto design. WHY doesn’t anyone design cool car cars anymore? (that normal people can afford…)

April 18, 2013 9:35 am

No star trek advertising in my local cinemas in Germany. :-(

Considering all the 2D to 3D conversion which have been going on lately, I’m surprised Star Trek ’09 wasn’t being converted over the last four years to coincide with this release. Maybe after …

I was just checking the DirectTv listings and was surprised to find that considering ST09 has been on cable and network TV numerous times for free over the last four years, that the only way to view it this month is PPV. One would think it would be offered for free everywhere to get anyone not familiar with the franchise to tune in and get amped up to see the new one.

April 18, 2013 9:52 am

8pm showing Thursday May 16th in my hometown Sault Ste. Marie Ontario Canada as well…change of plans?? OH YEAH!!!

naturally there are no cinemark theaters near me, heh

April 18, 2013 10:12 am

@23 – Stephan:
Is it also that bad in Germany? Here in The Netherlands the same thing… Maybe because NL is such a small country…? There are no competitions over here where we can win premiere/VIP tickets or something like that…

kinda boring….!!

April 18, 2013 10:53 am

Sucks that IMAX insists on using their proprietary 5.0 sound system and doesn’t support DOLBY ATMOS or Dolby Surround 7.1.

INTO DARKNESS has been mixed in DOLBY ATMOS and so to get the full experience you need to see it in 2 different theaters: IMAX to see the native IMAX footage and a theater that has the ATMOS sound system.

April 18, 2013 11:03 am

I read that there was supposed to be a clip from the movie released today on the web. Do you know if that’s true?

April 18, 2013 12:18 pm

So awesome living near an IMAX screen. May 15!!!

Why does the voiceover say “Maaaaarrrrrrzda”?

It’s Maz. Da.

As a middle class dad the Mazda 6 is about the pinnacle of my aspiration. We have a Mazda 3 now but another sprog on the way. We could do with the extra room.

April 18, 2013 2:42 pm

Just ordered my ticket for the 3D showing on May 16th. :) Will probably see it in 2D the next day. xD

April 18, 2013 5:34 pm

#17 – I seriously hope so.

Do Vulcans know how to drive cars though? Prime Kirk did not know how to drive a car, but obviously this nuKirk does!

A car is a car is a car…

April 18, 2013 6:29 pm

I have stupid work on Thursday so, me no go. But, I hope to be there for the official opening Friday.

They coulden’t even manage a bus ride for a while there. I wonder if prime Spock will slip the correct change into Kirks pocket sometime in the future.

Son of Jello
April 18, 2013 6:56 pm

I just realised Kirk does know how to use profanity. Maybe prime Spock has already clued him in on the future. And kirk now keeps a penny in tied in the corner of his hankie.

I hope there is a dvd extra “one on one swearing lesson with Mr Spock”

Re post #36 #37 #37

I just thought of a joke

Kirk goes upto Prime Spock as says “Any tips you can give me on the future Spock” Spock replies “Yea here’s a buck fifty and go fu@#k yourself dumb ass”.

Son of Jello
April 18, 2013 9:42 pm
Ok here we go Kirk and Spock are sitting in a room. Spock “Ok Jim I want you to clear your mind and try. Kirk closes his eyes and concentrates “b…bbb….bbbi… bicycle”. Spock “Were talking about the an entire species here…….. Jim you have to get this right”. Kirk “O K Spock Im do ing my best but I don’t undersatnd why you want me to do this….What species? Save them from what? from who? Spock “You have to trust me Jim the future of the planet depends on it” Kirk “b..bbbii……biiiiii……bingo!” Spock “Ok Jim one more time” Kirk “bb……bbiiiii……..biiiiit………bitch” Unfortunatly Uhura is walking past the room at this time Uhura “Hey mouth breather I hope that wasen”t directed at me?” Uhura then turns and sees prime Spock gasps in shock backs out of the room and runs of down the corridor. And for the rest of the day she cant get the image out of her head so later on when she is with her Spock being intimate. Uhura stops what she is doing.The image of a naked prime Spock is burnt into her mind Uhura “Im sorry Spock its over” And thats how Uhura and Spock break up. Thanks you’ve been a great audience I just got a new job on Thursday and dont start until Tuesdey next week so I will be here all night. And don’t forget if you want Spock and Uhura to stay together and Live happily ever after support these orginizations, http://www.seashepherd.org.au/ http://www.whalewatch.org/… Read more »

Never heard of ‘Cinemark’. Why no advanced showings in 2D???

April 20, 2013 6:41 pm

Just got my fan sneak tickets at the local brand-new RPX theater. Very glad they’re doing it- I’ll even put up with 3D at least once.
