Speaking to MTV about his upcoming Star Trek 2, director J.J. Abrams revealed that his next film's lens flares will fly off the screen and probably making you go blind through the magic of 3D. Though he isn't planning to shoot in 3D, he'll be using the process that's sometimes terrible, sometimes acceptable, and always unnecessary: post-production 3D conversion, which Abrams promises will be "good" and "high-end" if still one dimension behind Star Trek: The Experience's Borg Invasion 4-D. With his Mission: Impossible successor Brad Bird shooting parts of Ghost Protocol in IMAX, Abrams is also reportedly looking at shooting some scenes from the next Star Trek in the novelty-sized format. Said Abrams:

"We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format."
