Acclaimed filmmaker J.J. Abrams returns to the director’s chair for this latest action-packed installment in the iconic Star Trek franchise, which features Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the Starship Enterprise called back to Earth in the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization. After the crew of the Enterprise finds an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Abrams shot several key sequences of the film that feature big action set pieces with IMAX film cameras, which have become an integral tool for visionary filmmakers to tell their amazing stories. Exclusively at The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre, sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution film cameras will expand to fill the entire 62-foot-tall by 85-foot-wide screen and further immerse the audience in the vast dimension and adventure of this highly-anticipated follow-up.
The IMAX 3D release of Star Trek Into Darkness has been re-mastered into the unparalleled image quality of The IMAX Experience on true 15-perforation/70mm IMAX film. The crystal-clear images, coupled with The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre’s classic IMAX theatre design and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
