Well, Paramount Pictures, Skydance, Bad Robot and IMAX have just announced that a digitally re-mastered version of Star Trek Beyond will be shown on IMAX screens the day it debuts, on July 22, 2016. Both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness were released on IMAX screens, but Star Trek Into Darkness had scenes that were filmed in 3D and on IMAX cameras, with no news on whether Star Trek Beyond had scenes shot on IMAX cameras or not.

Justin Lin, fresh from directing Fast and the Furious 3-6 is behind Star Trek Beyond, where he said during his announcement on his excitement for Star Trek Beyond in IMAX: "IMAX provides a one-of-a-kind movie going experience to audiences all over the world. I am excited to bring the newest journey into the 'Star Trek' universe to its screens".
