Star Trek 2 Will Shoot In 2D
And be post-converted for 3D

Star Trek 2 Will Shoot In 2D

A very slight update from the Star Trek camp here: JJ Abrams has revealed to MTV that, while Star Trek 2 will be in 3D, it'll be a post-conversion affair.

Not to worry though, because "We'll do a good high-end conversion," Abrams promises. "It'll be like the Harry Potter movie and all that. Luckily we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good." The director also reveals that IMAX is on the cards, although nothing has yet been confirmed: "IMAX is my favourite format; I'm a huge fan. I would love to do it."

Aside from technical specs, there's not much new to report, since Abrams remains as tight-lipped as ever. He won't be drawn on the issue of the villain, but has confirmed that there will be no appearances from original-series cast members this time round.

What he will say is this: "Damon Lindelof, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman wrote the most amazing script, and I'm thrilled to get a chance to direct it. It's totally mine to screw up. If you don't like it, it's completely on me! Our sets are almost done, so we're going to start shooting next month..."

3D
Seems a strange decision to convert why not just shoot it properly, anyway probably just see it in 2D. More

3D?
Just wanna know why? Is it really just so they can make more cash from higher ticket sales? 3D is such a waste of time. Will wait for the Bluray and watch it in glorious 2D at home More
