Paramount Pictures has announced their plan to arrange for numerous IMAX 3D preview screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness on May 15th, just two days before the film gets its widespread release. According to the studio, fans will be able to purchase tickets for the screenings through the official Fandango app while those without the app can visit the Fandango website to see where the screenings will take place.
Paramount developed the Star Trek Into Darkness app to act as a newsfeed for the film, collecting articles from around the web and letting fans participate in various “missions” that will allow them unlock exclusive images, video clips and chances to win Star Trek prizes.
