Star Trek Beyond Director Justin Lin and Producer J.J. Abrams recently confirmed, during a special presentation for Star Trek Beyond at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles and to reveal the second trailer, that the world premiere of the film will take place at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016. It will be an outdoor IMAX experience on July 20, 2016 at Embarcadero Marina Park in San Diego. The film will be accompanied with a live score performance by the San Diego symphony orchestra composed by Michael Giacchino.
Star Trek Beyond Director Justin Lin told fans at the special presentation “I am thrilled to celebrate the premiere of the film together with the fans at Comic-Con and excited for everyone there to experience Michael Giacchino’s incredible score played live.”
David Glanzer, spokesperson for Comic-Con International commented on the news by saying “We are both privileged and excited that Paramount Pictures, Skydance, and Bad Robot have chosen to honour fans by having the world premiere of the next chapter of Star Trek at San Diego Comic-Con International this summer.”
Lucky fans who attended the special presentation, including those who queued up but got turned away, where rewarded with a ticket to attend the world premiere screening.
Details on when and how more tickets will be distributed have yet to be announced.
