J.J. Abrams Comments On STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Footage Debut & More!

Talking about Mission: Impossible V and how they are in talks with Christopher McQuarrie about possibly directing the film, J.J. Abrams also shared his thoughts on filming Star Trek in IMAX and how he feels about the footage debut...


Earlier today, Paramount Pictures revealed a teaser poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, a sequel to the very successful reboot from 2009. The first 9 minutes from the film will be attached to the IMAX 3D screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14th. We will also get a teaser trailer soon, which running time is 1:03. Talking to IGN at the 100th finale party for Fringe, director J.J. Abrams was asked about how he feels regarding finally showcasing the first footage:

"You know, I’m excited because we’ve been working on this for awhile, and the idea of getting some of the movie out there to the world is going to be a real thrill for us, and as always you just hope people will like what they see."

As for filming Star Trek Into Darkness with IMAX cameras, he said:

"It was amazing. Part of it was challenging because of the technical aspects of it, the machinery of it. The cameras themselves are a little unwieldy and a little loud and unpredictable. But then you go to dailies and you watch on this massive screen these images that you’ve shot having been filmed on a negative that’s eight times bigger than what you normally use, and you cannot believe how good it looks. So that’s exciting! But unlike Ghost Protocol, a lot of what we shot is integrated into special effects and visual effects in a way that I cannot wait for people to see. I think it really is mind-blowing, how it looks. The IMAX frame, I think, is really the best way to see a movie."

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Alice Eve, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood and Peter Weller, Star Trek Into Darkness will hit theatres on May 17, 2013.

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
