J.J. Abrams has been silent on “Star Trek Into Darkness”. So has the cast for that matter with Chris Pine, Karl Uraban, Zoe Saldana and company not spilling any details. But, fans won’t have to wait too much longer. A nine-minute prologue will appear before “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”. There’s a catch. Only on 500 IMax 3D screens. So, if you were hoping to see this in any other format, as the saying goes, you’re up a creek without a paddle on that one. Christopher Nolan did something similar with prologues for “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises”.
