Star Trek 2 won't shoot in 3D after all

A couple of weeks back we reported that director J.J. Abrams's second Star Trek flick would be filmed in 3D, a decision that baffled and frightened us in The Basement. The first film was great and hugely popular, so why gimmick up something that's sure to be huge hit with audiences anyway? Or so we wondered.

Turns out Abrams himself talked with MTV and shot down that rumour. The film will be shot normally and undergo the dreaded 3D-conversion process instead, meaning people will be able to see it in both Ds when it hits theatres in May 2013.

This is good news in a sense, as I could care less if Star Trek 2 was in 2D, 3D or even 4D. All we in The Basement want is another Star Trek movie already.

Also good news is Abrams dropped that he'd love to shoot the film in IMAX, which The Dark Knight and the latest Mission: Impossible were filmed in. IMAX gives a movie a powerful feel and scope that three extra dollars can't come close to capturing. Seeing the Enterprise warp in that format would be epic.

Here's the trailer for Abrams's first Trek.
