The mystery of which other summer film Edgar Wright directed a shot in has been solved. Earlier this summer, the Scott Pilgrim director teased that he directed one shot in a summer film this year that wasn’t his own. On Thursday Wright, fresh off a brand new trailer for The World’s End, took to Twitter to reveal the film in question was indeed Star Trek Into Darkness.
Wright posted a photo from the J.J. Abrams set, which looks like it takes place on Kronos, the Klingon home planet, with an IMAX camera. In the film, Kirk, Spock and Uhura find more than they bargained for on Kronos, both in the locals and also the evil John Harrison. Check it out below. Read More »

Most of us will never get to visit a J.J. Abrams set. The director is simply too protective about his work to let anyone not directly involved with the production linger as cameras roll. Thankfully, Paramount has released a seven-minute video from the set of Star Trek Into Darkness that puts the viewer right on the bridge of the Enterprise.
The video is a long montage of the film’s production, featuring actors like Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine when they’re not filming, Abrams directing various scenes, all kinds of different camera set ups, and more. It’s a fascinating snapshot of Abrams and the Enterprise crew in action. Read More »
No doubt about it: you need to see J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness in IMAX. It’s only the fifth major studio release (behind The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises) to be filmed with real IMAX cameras. It will have about 30 minutes of its run time in full screen, massive 70mm IMAX. Plus, it’s first of these studio IMAX films to ever be done in 3D, making it’s the first-ever feature length 3D IMAX release. A milestone.
So there’s that. And to convey the film’s size, IMAX and Paramount have released a brand new poster specific to this version of the film. The poster shows the Enterprise being chased by a ship that looks similar, but is several times bigger. That can’t be good for Captain Kirk, Spock and the crew. Check it out below. Read More »

As F. Scott Fitzgerald said, the rich are different from you and me. For one thing, while the rest of us have to deal with overpriced concessions and overcrowded seats to catch a movie in IMAX, they’ll soon be able to enjoy it in the privacy and comfort of their own home.
IMAX has revealed plans to enter the home theater market with IMAX Private Theatre, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Tons of films hit IMAX screens each year, but actually watching footage shot in IMAX remains a special experience. While regular 35mm film can be upconverted to fit the giant screens, they still can’t match native IMAX for crispness and quality. And Paramount and IMAX are hoping the moviegoing public have noticed.
At CinemaCon this week, the companies announced a new five-picture deal to release films in the bigger format. The first two titles to come out of that pact will be Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar and Michael Bay‘s Transformers 4.
Update: According to our own Peter Sciretta, at CinemaCon tonight Michael Bay said that Transformers 4 is being shot in native 3D with a new IMAX camera. We don’t have the precise specifics of this camera at this point.
