JJ Abrams says ‘Star Trek 2’ will NOT be filmed in 3D

Now, before you start cheering and organising a party, read on. JJ Abrams has said that his Star Trek sequel will not be FILMED in 3D, but the plan is still to convert it into 3D. In a recent interview with MTV, Abrams stated that he has no plans to actually film Star Trek 2 in 3D, although early rumours suggested otherwise, instead the plan is to convert the film into 3D in the later stages. Abrams plans to use the same approach they used on Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2, and Clash of the Titans.

Abrams has said they will use a “good, high end conversion” and with the release of the film over a year away they will have the time to “do it right”, because “if you rush it, it never looks good”.

So it would appear that the new Star Trek film will be coming to us in 3D, but Abrams also hinted at another style of filming he would like to use, one that is much more promising: “I would love to do it. IMAX is my favourite format; I’m a huge fan.”

Abrams seems much more positive on the whole IMAX format rather than the 3D format. It is doubtful that the studios would be able to force Abrams to do anything, bit it would appear that he is being asked, or even pushed into using 3D against his will. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens. Star Trek 2 is scheduled for a May 2013 release.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
