Star Trek Into Darkness Opening Earlier In IMAX 3D

Bigger-screen version of sci-fi sequel to open two days before general release...

Star Trek Into Darkness is set to open on 3D IMAX screen two days before it goes on general release, it has been confirmed.

According to Benedict Cumberbatch has said that he doesn't think he'll end up typecast as a typical English-accented villain after the movie.

He told The Sun: "I am very aware of the English transition of an actor being from a different culture coming over and they are being like, 'God, this guy does theatre and c***. We'd better give him the bad guy role and a cape and just make him be really horrible'.

"It was the pitch that JJ [Abrams] gave me, a couple of scenes to audition with and he fleshed out the whole world of the rest of the script, and there's a purpose and intention to his otherwise violent and pretty distressing actions that made it really intriguing.

"And I thought, 'Well, OK, there's a purpose to this man'."
