'Star Trek Into Darkness' Footage to Sneak Peek Before 'Hobbit'

November 15, 2012


Wagering that there might be some sort of cross-over market between nerds that like dwarves and nerds that like Klingons, Paramount is going to try hooking audiences into Star Trek Into Darkness when they go to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Following in the path of Warner Bros. with their Batmen, the studio is reportedly to debut the first nine minutes of J.J. Abrams' unnervingly-unpunctuated sequel in about 500 theaters this December, to be shown exclusively before IMAX screenings of Peter Jackson's latest Tolkien adaptation. Those in attendance should expect the footage to be met with 90% cheering, 10% scornful chuckles followed by exasperated, muttered explanations of why the fantasy and science fiction genres could not be further from each other.
