Behind the Scenes: Star Trek: Into Darkness

Blue screen, IMAX cameras and J.J. Abrams serving as his own lens flare technician highlight this collection of stills from Abrams’ “It’s not Kahn….OK, it’s totally Kahn” sequel.

The images come from this story on Kodak’s website and fstoppers. Star Trek: Into Darkness hits DVD, on-demand, etc. on September 10th.
