JJ Abrams Talks 'Star Trek', Movie To Have 1,000 Visual Effects Shots

Producer and director JJ Abrams recently did an interview to answer some questions for his highly anticipated upcoming big budget flick -- 'Star Trek'.

Abrams started off by saying that while they will be using plenty of special effects, and he's anticipating about 1000 visual effects shots, he didn't want the movie to look like a 'green screen movie' and is doing his best to make it seem as realistic as possible.

"My goal is to make Trek real -- that is to say, not have it be camp -- not have it be phony -- not have it look like a scrap of green screen was used anywhere,” says Abrams. “Of course, this is Star Trek. We’re using every trick in the book. But wherever we can, we are shooting on sets -- either built on sound stages or expanding upon found locations."

"This is important. What this means is that the movie won’t have that actors performing in a blue or green void then placed in front of a spaceship set’ feeling that makes me insane.”

He says "the Enterprise will be a combo of the physical and the virtual.” You can see the first released photo here.

Although we did get a very short teaser trailer ahead of 'Cloverfield', Abrams says we can expect a full trailer in theatres early to mid summer, after production is wrapped up in April.

And the answer you alll have been waiting for, yes, the doors on the Enterprise will have the familiar 'swoosh' sound effect.
