Star Trek

Yesterday, we posted a pair of set photos from the Los Angeles location shoot of Star Trek 2. Six more photos have emerged from the production and you can check them out here below.

Much like the ones released earlier, the set pics are taken from the filming of a fight scene involving Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), and the film’s still-unnamed villain played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch. In the sixth picture, in addition to Quinto and Cumberbatch with their stunt doubles you can clearly see the IMAX camera being used to capture the action.

Cumberbatch (I’m going to keep typing that name so it is forever burned onto my brain and I don’t spell it CumberPATCH anymore) doesn’t appear to be wearing any make-up or prosthetics, so it’s possible his character is human, or maybe one of those humanoid aliens that used to pop in those cheapie 1950’s sci-fi B-movies. He’s definitely wearing a Starfleet uniform.

I’m excited that the movie is being shot in IMAX, or at least portions are. I saw the first Star Trek in IMAX back in September 2009 and it looked like I was watching it on Blu-ray on the world’s largest HD flatscreen television. After seeing the prologue for the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises projected in the format and the praise heaped upon the action sequences in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol that were filmed in IMAX, I’m convinced that IMAX and not 3D is the best way to enjoy movies like this.

Of course that isn’t stopping Paramount from converting the J.J. Abrams-directed sci-fi epic into 3D for its release to milk those extra dollars from moviegoers, even though IMAX ticket prices are usually higher than 3D prices. Go figure.

Star Trek 2 opens on May 17, 2013.
