J.J Abrams Shares His Thoughts On The 3D Conversion Of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

Unsurprisingly, it turns out that it was the studio who forced 3D on J.J. Abrams for his highly anticipated Star Trek sequel, but the director talks here about using the format along with the scenes shot in IMAX to great effect. Hit the jump to read his comments in full!


Talking about the 3D conversion of Star Trek Into Darkness, director J.J. Abrams has assured fans that despite him not being a fan of the format, it is being put to good use in the sequel. "3D was something that, frankly, I was not a big fan of to begin with. Essentially in order for us to make this movie, the studio said 'You gotta do this in 3D'. So we said, well, we can do a 2D version that we love that can also be converted to 3D," he revealed, before adding: "And the truth is that I've actually been having a lot of fun with it." So, it sounds as if he still believes that 2D is the optimal way to view the film. However, while he was clearly forced to convert the film, Abrams is putting it to very good use so those who DO want to view Star Trek Into Darkness in 3D won't be disappointed. "We have an amazing amount of creative freedom, doing the 3D in post[-production]. This is kind of the myth, that it only looks good if you shoot the movie in 3D, which is completely not true. In fact, we're doing a bunch of things with the 3D in this movie that have not been done before, using techniques that have not been seen. All the exterior shots, including the shots in space, are all either shot or rendered in IMAX format. It's the first time a movie has been shot in IMAX to this scale and converted to 3D." Will you consider checking out Star Trek Into Darkness in 3D? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
