World War Z and Star Trek Into Darkness are being packaged as a double feature set for release this weekend for one week only from Aug. 30 to Sep. 5.
Paramount planned a double whopper for action-film fanatics by slating two of its summer blockbusters for a double feature at select theaters such as AMC, Regal, Carmike and Marcus. The films will play back-to-back on 3D and 2D screens, and will come at the price of one ticket.
Brad Pitt's zombie flick made over $526 million worldwide upon its release in June, making it Pitt's highest grossing film ever. J.J. Abram's Star Trek Into Darkness raked in over $450 million worldwide when it opened in theaters in May.
Another Star Trek sequel is already in the works, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci writing the script. Abrams also revealed that he would be shooting the new sequel on classic 35mm film, "specifically Kodak film stock 5219."
World War Z released in June and Star Trek Into Darkness released in May this year.
Paramount announced in June that a sequel for World War Z was on the cards. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times the film's director, Marc Forster, said that he viewed the "World War Z as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of Matt Damon's Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC's Walking Dead."
