This upcoming weekend officially marks the start of summer in the movie industry, and the season is totally front-loaded with hotly-anticipated titles. Iron Man 3 kicks the month off with a bang this Friday, both Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III will be fighting for Memorial Day weekend, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby will work to introduce some 1920s-style class, and the Enterprise will fly again in Star Trek Into Darkness. And in advance of the titles we can expect to be teased with all kinds of trailers, teasers, TV spots, clips and featurettes - for example the one above for Abrams' venture into deep space.
While the new Star Trek film isn't scheduled to hit theaters hear in the United States until May 17th, those who have friends living around the world may want to be on high spoiler alert over the next couple weeks as the film will be in many international markets as of next Tuesday, May 9th. If you desperately don't want to know the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's mystery character than I highly recommend taking a step away from Facebook, Twitter, and the like.
May 17th looks pretty far away even from April 29th, but at least you can be sure that there will be plenty more distractions to get you ready for the sci-fi sequel starring Chris Pine, Zachery Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. Check out this cool poster you can get at special IMAX screenings, give this weird tie-in promo a watch, and stay tuned for more.
