Sci Fi Wire was part of a group of reporters that attended 2 seperate press conferences on the same day with J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman. Apparently a lot of what they talked about was a sequel to Star Trek and where they would plan on taking the rebooted franchise. Some of the ideas are cool, like Kirk being in it, Spock Prime possibly returning, and revisiting missions in the alternate reality from the classic Trek show.
One idea I found very disturbing and stinking of bandwagon jumping was the idea of the sequel being done in 3D. OK, so yeah - I'm over the 3D thing. Does it look cool? Yes. Is it necessary to make a film watchable? If it is, then that movie should have never been made in the first place. I think the 3D thing is pretty cool for an every-once-in-a-while treat to make a movie an "event"? But to make it commonplace and the norm? Not really buying into it.
To check out everything the guys had to say and what their early plans are for the sequel, go here.
