Plus Paramount and Bad Robot are holding a charity auction for VIP passes to the Hollywood premiere (including meeting cast/crew and after-party).
Glowing IMAX Print given away at May 15th Fan Sneaks
Today IMAX introduced their new new IMAX FANFIX program which was formerly called "IMAX® 12:01." The program aims to "reward the most avid IMAX fans with limited edition, collectible prints for select films." And the first new print will be for Star Trek Into Darkness (designed in collaboration with Paramount Pictures, Bad Robot and Gallery 1988).

Charity Auction For VIP Passes To Hollywood Premeire
Paramount and Bad Robot are offering fans a unique opportunity to meet director JJ Abrams and the cast of Star Trek Into Darkness with a charity auction for four VIP passes to the Hollywood premiere of the movie including walking the red carpet and attending the after-party.
Opening bid is $2,500. Bad Robot will match bids up to $25,00. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Mission Continues – an organization that helps Iraq and Afghanistan vets. You can bid on the auction at CharityBuzz.
Oh wow, I like that poster. Why couldn’t that be the standard movie poster?
This is such a bummer for me since I love the poster, but I can’t see 3D so I can’t see this movie in IMAX. :-(
Yay! I will be there!
poster = nice
ship = fugly
IMAX = cool!
added an bit, poster glows in the dark
Glows in the dark??? Is it velvet, too?
It glows in the dark? Am I too old, at almost 62, to hang it in my bedroom? Maybe on the ceiling?
#2. You should check with your theater afterwards. I got the special poster for the “The Great and Powerful Oz” even though I went a few days after the special midnight opening.
YES! My dad and I are getting the poster. This is awesome totally going up on my back wall of my cube.
Wow! The IMAX print is beautiful! It’s a work of art! Reminds me of the old painted posters. I wish I could get one. Or at least a hi-res version as a wallpaper. (Hint, hint ;-)
I want one of those posters!!!!!! But no IMAX within 5 hours of me so no poster for me.
YES! My theater is a participating location and I’ve got my 8pm tickets (have had for ages). This is cooler than the Harry Potter 3D glasses that I got.
#9. Borg Cube?
@1 – Because Zoe Saldana isn’t in it.
This is awesome. 3 of us in my family are going to this. That means we will keep one for the house, and then I can sale the remaining two on Ebay for say $30 each, which will pay back for the cost of the IMAX tickets and snacks.
I ordered my tickt for the Naperville AMC! YAY!
I cannot wait to get mine.
Does anyone know the dimensions of the poster??
@#7— HELL NO! Not too old! Hang it up and let your geek flag FLY!!!!
I do SO wish Paramount could have gone with Abrams’ original vision for the film print of 2D IMAX.
Trying to prepare myself for the over-stimulation of both 3D and IMAX at the same time. Bummer.
Wondering if my true IMAX theatre downtown will be able to show the movie in a month or so – does 3D film mean different projectors are required?
Boo-hoo-hoo, talk about a first-world problem! An embarrassment of riches ….
But whoo-hoooooo! I get a print just for attending the premiere on 15 May!!!
What’s the size of this thing? Even if 8 inches tall, it’ll push 2 1/2 to 3 feet wide from the looks of it.
I will say this: I saw the 9 minute preview before the Hobbit and I flinched and jumped twice, which was two more times I did for the 3 hour film afterwards. Just saying.
@14 – That’s COLD, dude but I agree with ya.
Perfect for geeks… like me.
Anyone heard if there exists 2D prints in imax ? Due to a vision issue 3D kills my eyes.
I am going to frame this and hang it up
So just because the 8pm showing was sold out and I had to book 11pm I don’t get the poster!? That sucks!! Luckily I don’t really care anymore,after reading the spoliers this movie just dropped down quite a bit on my list of movies I’m looking forward to. What was it someone here called it again!?….unenthused. LOL! I call it superexcited. I have two other movies I’m superexcited about so all is fine. And if I really wanted this poster I’ll pick it up on ebay.
Can’t believe I’m seeing this movie twice though. Next week,and the 11pm showing I booked,when I WAS superexcited about the movie,lol,,in the US for the week after! Oh well,if I lower my expectations enough I’m sure it’ll be entertaining. Still hoping those spoilers are fake though,lol!
cool me n my two bros should get the poster…
I want that poster.
Cool poster. But only available to fans who can see 3D films! It amazes me how Paramount is disrespecting and disregarding a large portion of Trek fans. : (
Nothing for fans at the MIDNIGHT Imax showings in London on May 9th… Sucks for us I guess.
I wish I could get it… Unfortunately I have a pair of Chem exams the next day… Well, maybe next time…
Their on eBay now. When it glows you can see the silhouette of the Vengeance :)
