The UK release of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness has officially been moved up by a week to May 9 when it will go out in IMAX 3D, 3D and 2D cinemas. Paramount currently has the film set for a May 17 release in the States with IMAX 3D screenings on May 15. The shift has led some to wonder if the U.S. date may move to May 9 as well, but then what would happen to all those Super Bowl viewers who unlocked movie tickets for special early showings on the 15th? Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the film, just tweeted: “Looks like Star Trek Into Darkness will land in the UK first. Release date May 9th. That’s about 8 weeks away. Not long considering.”
Hey! What did we win the revolutionary war for if not to bully those folks into sharing their early releases with us? This is so not fair! It’s like the times my sister got to ride in the front seat and I had to sit in the back of the car where I couldn’t see anything and couldn’t participate in the conversation very well! Yeah, it’s that level of unfairness I’m talking about here! Methinks it’s time for another war!
