Star Trek Into Darkness

While the reboot sequel Star Trek Into Darkness has come and gone (and didn't live up to my excitement from last year), some fans are still enjoying the film since it was released on Blu-Ray and DVD. Though some didn't like the use of Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan (despite a great performance) and found plenty to nitpick about the story, you can't deny that the action and visual effects made the J.J. Abrams film enjoyable on a surface level. Hell, the film just got nominated for Best Visual Effects at the BAFTAs this morning. Now Industrial Light & Magic has released two featurettes looking at how those VFX came together for the film, with some pretty cool animatic breakdowns with tons of layers. Watch now!

Here's the two VFX featurettes for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness from ILM (via Collider):

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated everything the fleet stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a "one man weapon of mass destruction."

Star Trek Into Darkness is the sequel to the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot of Gene Roddenberry's original science fiction series. The screenplay this time was co-written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof. Most of the crew is back, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin & John Cho. Paramount Pictures has the film available on Blu-Ray and DVD right now.

At the end of the second one... that sound... doesn't that sound like a little roundheaded astrodroid from a galaxy far far away...

It's impressive, but somehow lacks weight or substance. Looks too much like a video game? So much fake stuff there's no sense of peril? Or just poorly-written material... It's hard to say.
