(AP) In a story May 15 about astronauts at the International Space Station getting the new "Star Trek" movie, The Associated Press reported erroneously when the film opened on Earth. "Star Trek into Darkness" opened in the United States on Thursday; it opened in some other countries earlier in May.


A corrected version of the story is below:


Space not the final frontier for viewing movies


Beam me up popcorn Scotty; space station crew gets 'Star Trek' film before U.S.

WASHINGTON (AP) The crew of the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before to see the new "Star Trek" film.


The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of "Star Trek Into Darkness" days before it opens Thursday in the United States, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-G.


NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It's unclear if they watched it.


U.S. astronaut Chris Cassidy is taking part Thursday in a Google+ hangout that's bringing together two Earth-bound astronauts, film stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho, and its director and screenwriter.
