Abrams Undecided on Star Trek 2 in 3-D

Collider has posted a brief addendum to their interview with JJ Abrams' when they asked him the studio wanted Star Trek 2 to be in 3D ("Yep") and his thoughts on the format.
“I have nothing against 3-D in theory. But I’ve also never run to the movies because something’s in 3-D. [As for Trek], as soon as I read the script, if it says, “Somebody pushes a weapon toward the camera in a menacing way,” and we think, “That’d be better in 3-D!”… I dunno.”
Unless the 3D sales take a noticeable nosedive (and don't see how considering movie goers will have a difficult time avoiding them considering the volume of them being released) then I think Star Trek 2 will be in 3D. That battle was proven to be definitively lost the moment Peter Jackson was forced to make The Hobbit films in 3D and rumored to be planning to post convert the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

  1. I don't really like 3D- it doesn't add anything too dramatic except for in movies like avatar. And they're more expensive too

    oh well, if it's here to stay, it's here to stay
