Star Trek Into Darkness To Be Released Two Days Early

Star Trek Into Darkness, the upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot, was originally going to be released on June 29th, 2012. Due to various goings-on behind the production, the project was eventually delayed and the date was pushed all the way back to May 17, 2013. It was a lot of extra time to wait, especially for hardcore fans just dying to head back into the world of Star Fleet, but today the wait just got a tiny bit shorter.

The recently released Star Trek Into Darkness app promised that it would reveal something special when used while the Super Bowl trailer was playing in the vicinity, and now that end result has been uncovered: Paramount Pictures will now release the new Star Trek movie in theaters two days early, on May 15, 2013, at 8:00pm. Tickets are currently available to purchase through the app. The announcement says that this is only the first surprise that the app will be used to reveal, so keep a look out for more uses.

Written by Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, Star Trek Into Darkness begins with Star Fleet being attacked from within and follows the crew of the Enterprise, led by Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), on the hunt for the mysterious John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), the man who orchestrated the attack. Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, and John Cho all reprise their roles from the last film while Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, and Peter Weller join the cast.
