Are you craving the all-around, in-your-face feeling of sitting down to an IMAX film? Do you want to feel the popcorn you devoured during the trailers rumble in your tummy as the THX sound check rattles your bones? Are you like me, willing to give up several children for the chance to be a part of the Star Trek crew? Those yearning to feel as if they're back on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise will be glad to hear that the sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek will be shot and released in glorious IMAX 3D.
The yet to be officially titled sequel, which we can safely call Star Trek 2 to avoid confusion, has recently been confirmed to be released in IMAX 3D. The film sees the return of the famous Starship Enterprise crew on a new trail-blazing adventure across the final frontier. J.J. Abrams is stepping in again as director with Lost collaborator Damon Lindelof, who recently penned the script for Prometheus, taking on the writing duties.
With a release in IMAX 3D, the film will truly feel like stepping aboard the spaceship first mad famous in the 1966 original series. It's somewhat wild to think that in just over 40 years, the low-budget cardboard sets would be adapted into the Zenith of film making technology. That said, this Trekkie will always miss the laughable fight scenes and hilariously bad set pieces that made the original series so special.
