Apparently, the final frontier is a lot closer for Australians than everyone else. Paramount have announced that JJ Abrams' reimagined Star Trek will get its world premiere at the Sydney Opera House next month.

The April 7th premiere is just the start of an international series of premieres (including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Spain and the UK), before the movie opens here on May 8th.
