Indian audiences first to see Star Trek Into Darkness
As the countdown for Star Trek: Into Darkness begins, audiences are geared up for this year’s highly awaited release. Sci-fi fans are in for a surprise as the movie comes to India a week before its International release.
Watching the movie in 3D is something that the audiences are looking forward to. Talking about it, director J. J. Abrams says “For the story to move forward, this had to be a more ambitious movie than the first. The action and the scale are light years ahead. Bringing IMAX and 3D technology in will give audiences yet another level of excitement and fun to be had.” The film is constantly engaging with fans through innovative and cool ideas which can be seen all over the internet.
After giving a 30 minute sneak peak of the movie, the team launched the ‘Star Trek Academy’, an application which quizzed the trekkies about their Star Trek knowledge and generates an official customized ‘Star Trek Certificate’ based on their knowledge.
John Harrison, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, has created quite a stir amid the audiences.
Talking about the character, J. J. Abrams says, “What Benedict brings to the role is natural intelligence, wit and sophistication, but he also brings this kind of unbelievable grounded truth to it and that is wonderful for a character that you want to fear, question or maybe even relate to”. With just a few days to go, advance bookings have already started in full swing and by the looks of it; the movie is going to be a hit. It’s going to be a visual treat to watch Spock, Kirk, John Harrison come back and continue the league of “Star Trek”.
The movie is slated to release on 10th May.
