In a bold effort to monopolise the attentions of Chez Fluffrick on December 14th, IMAX have announced that screenings of “The Hobbit” on that day will be preceded by nine minutes of “Star Trek Into Darkness” prologue footage.
Just. Take. My. Money. Now.
This footage will be available in 500 IMAX 3D screens worldwide, and I’m hoping that my local Sheffield cinema will be amongst the lucky havens of nerdery receiving such an early Festivus gift – it’ll make up for my local IMAX not being one of the locations with projection capable of displaying “The Hobbit” in Peter Jackson’s much-discussed High Frame Rate presentation.
