Star Trek held its world premiere in Sydney on Tuesday night, and we've got a few images from the movie's red carpet in front of that city's famed opera house.

Meanwhile, SlashFilm has helpfully compiled early reviews of the movie from the surprise screening in Austin, Texas, and the Sydney premiere, most of which are positive.

In attendance were cast members Zachary Quinto (Spock), Chris Pine (Kirk), native New Zealander Karl Urban (McCoy), John Cho (Sulu), Aussie native son Eric Bana (Nero), director J.J. Abrams and producer Bryan Burk, all decked out in dark suits.

More than 1,500 people attended the gala premiere screening in the opera house.

Star Trek opens in North America in IMAX and conventional theaters on May 8.
