Watch ILM Build A Futuristic San Francisco For STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

Hollywood special effects company, Industrial Light & Magic, has released a new visual effects breakdown video for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness that showcases their contributions.

What does the storied city of San Francisco look like in 2259? How does it function? Who lives there? All good questions -- these are exactly the questions that ILM VFX supervisor Roger Guyett, Co-VFX supervisor Patrick Tubach, VFX art director Yanick Dusseault, digital environments supervisor Barry Williams and model supervisor Bruce Holcomb had to answer to create a version of the city by the Bay that satisfied director J.J. Abram's vision for the film. - ILMVisualFX
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation 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.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was directed by J.J. Abrams ("Super 8"), from a screenplay written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Returning for the sequel are Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoë Saldana, and Anton Yelchin. Joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. Now available at your local Blockbuster.

This film definitely had some of the best effects of any film from last year.

Fantastic film.

Khan was pretty badass.

That moment when he hold on the volcan pinch, was the moment he got my respect as a true badass villain.

Film was utter shite, scifi for idiots!

For crissakes people the used cold fusion to freeze a volcano?!

Khan made 72 missiles to hide 72 of his own people in, basic maths and no one could figure that out?

And he somehow turned from an Asian sikh into an English white guy yet kept the name Khan Noonian Singh with no explanation to how?

God the list of absolute brain dead shite in that film is endless.
