In an interview with Japanese media outlet Nihon Seizai, Disney’s CFO Peter Oppenheimer shared some insight into the movie’s 3D experience.
“The 3D [experience] was the result of a lot of trial and error and testing, and I think people are really looking forward to it,” Oppenheim said.
“I can’t really speak about its resolution, but I can say it’s not the same experience as the original theatrical release.
The 3D is actually a big improvement over the original.”
In a press release, Disney described the 3D re-release as “a cinematic experience in the same way that a traditional film experience is a cinematic experience.”
The film’s release in theaters on December 15 will come after a successful teaser, which has seen audiences and critics alike excited about the new 3D visual effects.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” will also be making its debut in theaters in 3DS XL, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
