SYDNEY, March 20 (UPI) -- J.J. Abrams' film "Star Trek" is to have its world premiere at the Sydney Opera House.

The BBC said the event is to take place April 7.

Abrams, who is the creator of TV's "Lost" and "Alias," directed the movie about the early days of the crew of the USS Enterprise. The reimagined story is based on the classic sci-fi series and stars "Bottle Shock" actor Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk, "Heroes'" player Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock and "Hot Fuzz" hero Simon Pegg as Montgomery "Scotty" Scott.

Leonard Nimoy, who was the first actor to portray Spock, is the only original cast member to appear in the new film, the BBC noted.

The movie is to open in U.S. theaters May 8.
