Take a look at the official details in the press release below.
IMAX Corporation and Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., today announced that fans across North America will be able to experience the upcoming motion picture event Star Trek Into Darkness exclusively in IMAX® 3D beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 - two days in advance of the wide release on May 17.

The IMAX release of Star Trek Into Darkness will feature approximately 30 minutes of footage filmed with the extremely high-resolution IMAX® cameras. These specific sequences, which will expand to fill more of the screen exclusively in IMAX, will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers.
