LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramount Pictures is partnering with Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform, to reach consumers and drive ticket sales for the highly anticipated summer blockbuster – "Star Trek Beyond" - with a creative two-week 360° marketing campaign leading up to the July 22 release.
The campaign will feature exclusive content from "Star Trek Beyond" that will premiere inside the app. Additionally, there will be a 15-second "Star Trek Beyond" co-branded in-theater spot (view here) that will air over a two-week period at AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas where Atom Tickets is live.

Their modern and easy to use platform is the very first to create a social experience around going to the movies. We believe Atom Tickets will strike a chord with audiences, and we are excited to support an innovative company that will strengthen the theatrical movie business."
