These days, when you say J.J. Abrams, I think Star Wars. That’s just the way it’s going to be. As if to remind everyone about that other Star movie Abrams is directing, Paramount has released a short behind the scenes featurette for Star Trek Into Darkness. It doesn’t reveal anything new about the film and is somewhat generic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching. Especially if you’re jazzed about the movie.
The video includes remarks from J.J. Abrams, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana. They make vague statements about the tone and beauty of the movie, and the clips definitely back up the latter – the Trek universe looks pretty. Abrams goes so far as to state that it’s the most “fun and challenging” experience he’s had making a movie. Let’s see if that still holds up in a few years, eh?
Watch the featurette after the break.
