No IMAX theaters anywhere near me.

I guess I'll just go to Ain't It Cool News the next day and read someone's half-illiterate description of what they saw.

They must be pretty confident in what they have if they are going to release the first nine minutes. A bit of a gamble.
Perhaps.

However, wasn't it at about this point in the cycle last time around that there was a special press screening at which twenty minutes (four complete scenes) were shown?

We have two of them but they both suck for different reasons. One, (Regal) has uncomfortable seating & the other, (AMC) charges three bucks extra for flimsy Mylar lens glasses which blur and distort the image.

OK.

I had no intention of seeing The Hobbit in IMAX because it's expensive and a pain in the ass but if they show these nine minutes here I may just go ahead and do it. And sit in my seat waiting for the next screening so I can see those nine minutes again.

I'd rather just watch the nine minutes over and over though.

I paid to see Wing Commander because it had Star Wars Episode I trailer attached lol.

Re: nine minutes!

Paramount obviously looked at the promotional campaign for the last Batman movie.

I'm going to have to walk two whole blocks from home to catch this in IMAX.

I'd be interested to know if this was JJ's idea or Paramount's. Wouldn't surprise me if the Star Wars Episode 7-9 announcement factored into this, the nine minutes being a way to recapture some lost thunder for Trek XII. Not to say that they needed to--I think Trek XII will be plenty high-profile when the time comes--but it does strike me as the kind of consideration a studio suit would tend to make, for good or ill.
Yes, the grand new announcement, what everyone wants to see!

Episode VII

STAR WARS VS STAR TREK

I wonder which fanbase that would piss off more?
I'd probably throw something.

Seriously though, I'm hoping this 9 minutes is just a space battle. I really don't want to be spoiled and I'm worried a 9 minute chunk won't have that seduce the audience tease quality that a good trailer has.

I went to my local theater and just watched the trailer about 5 times without paying for anything for TPM

I paid to see "Cloverfield" (and ended up enjoying it) to see the last Star Trek's first teaser trailer at a midnight screening. I paid to see movies I've probably now forgotten to see trailers for STs II-X.

Decades ago, attendees of ShoWest convention saw the "Star Trek II" presentation film (much longer than a typical trailer), narrated by William Shatner, which ended up being the only place where fans and film buffs saw that Saavik was half-Romulan, and that a romantic attraction had been intended between Saavik and David.

Re: nine minutes!

If they are attempting to imitate Nolan's Batman movies then the opening of the movie will probably introduce Benedict Cumberbatch's character and/or the Klingons. Batman didn't appear in the opening of either one, so it won't surprise me if we don't see the Enterprise or crew at all either.

Re: nine minutes!

The closest IMAX theater for me is 25 miles away. I won't drive there just to see this. Hopefully something will be leaked on line. I wonder if there will be a regular trailer with the Hobbit in plain old regular theaters?

Re: nine minutes!

I await the backlash when people hear Cumberbatch's voice.


Two weeks later his voice is dubbed by Patrick Stewart.
