Director JJ Abrams, who used the technology during the production of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, said that he was eager to experiment with it again.
"We were so thrilled with the creative results of shooting IMAX for Mission: Impossible that we jumped at the chance to use the format for Star Trek," said Abrams.
"All expectations were exceeded - the action and resolution is insane at this scale. We cannot wait for audiences to see the crew of the Enterprise in a way they never have before."
Chris Pine will reprise his role as Captain Kirk for the Star Trek sequel, alongside fellow returning cast members Simon Pegg and Zachary Quinto. Newcomers Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller will also star in the movie.
Star Trek 2 arrives in UK theatres on May 17, 2013.
