Trek back in IMAX

Sep. 2, 2009by: Tony Lang

     Zack REALLY wants to be on IMAX...

Say what you will about JJ's STAR TREK revamp, it kicked all kinds of butts at the box-office and schooled a whole lot of franchises on how to properly reboot. And for those like me who only got to see it once in theaters, here's a bit of good news.

The film only had a 2-week run in IMAX screens when it was released last May, due to other "big" movies already booked in as well, even though a huge crappy mess of transforming robots isn't any better on 22ft screens. So while we're waiting for that November DVD release, Paramount will re-release Trek on over 100 IMAX screen this Friday for an additional 2-week run.

The move MIGHT simply be an attempt to boost its summer box-office numbers, but honestly I don't care: I got a few days off coming and you bet your ass I'll get me some Green Orion chick on that uber-giant screen!

Extra Tidbit: Will Zach Quinto walk out on Heroes, or will he put his new-found fame on hold while the show runs its course? Although the show might not be alive for many more years...

Thumbs up for referencing the very hot Rachel Nichols.
Thumbs down for more lame TF2 bashing.

I'll be re-watching Trek in IMAX Thursday night.

Yeah, sure. The fact that you're putting the latest Michael Bay summer popcorn action movie in the same sentence as that fucking monstrosity of a female fanbase is pitiful on your part.

A few friends went to the Trek con in Vegas and saw Quinto at his Q&A and he said he would stick with Heroes as long as the show wants him, but when it's over, he was going to stop doing tv.

Star Trek was the best movie of the summer...period. It was even better than my beloved Drag Me To Hell.

i saw it at an imax dome in the franklin. the imax theater is one of the oldest and since the film was made with imax cameras, the dome just kind of stretched it all out. i wanted to go to a newer imax theater to check out though. so i probably will now. i wonder if they'll still charge full admission.

Heroes needs a new villain anyway

Sylar is an overpowered character that does jack for most of the season, except act menacing. They had a shot of doing something with him by making him good, but that was quickly squashed.

Transformers 2 was a "huge crappy mess of transforming robots"? I want news, not your band wagon opinions.
