LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "Star Trek Into Darkness" will dock in the United Kingdom a week before it hits theaters in the United States.
It was Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in J.J. Abram's "Star Trek" sequel, who broke the news. He tweeted on Thursday that the film will beam into theaters across the pond on May 9, instead of the previously planned U.K. release date of May 17.
"Looks like 'Star Trek Into Darkness' will land in the UK first. Release date May 9th," Pegg wrote. "That's about 8 weeks away. Not long considering."
That means there will be some spoilers on the internet for days before Americans can see the movie. It will be released domestically on May 15.
Cover your eyes and ears, Trekkies.
