The man, the myth, the legend, J.J Abrams, has been in the news quite a bit lately. He'll be directing the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII", and his "Star Trek Into Darkness", the last "Trek" film he will direct, was set to hit AMC Theatres on May 17th.

The good news my fellow trekkies? You can now catch the flick two days earlier, as IMAX has partnered with Paramount, for viewings of the film starting at 8pm on May 15th in IMAX 3D! Click here to get your tickets now!

Greg Foster, President and Chairman of IMAX, said, "As we saw with the reaction to the first nine minutes of the film, which debuted in our theaters in December, fans are clearly excited by the opportunity to see this epic film come to life in IMAX. We're thrilled to work with our long-standing partners at Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures to offer audiences the opportunity to see J.J. Abrams' masterful interpretation two days early in the world 's most immersive format - IMAX 3D."

Opposed to other films that are post-converted into IMAX or 3D, 30 minutes of footage from "Star Trek Into Darkness", was actually shot with high-resolution IMAX cameras. This will make the picture incredibly vibrant and crisp.
