Description

Director J.J. Abrams new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time, "Star Trek" features a young, new crew venturing boldly where no man has gone before, as it tells the story of how the brash Starfleet cadet James T. Kirk first meets a Vulcan named Spock, and earns the Captain s chair of the Starship "Enterprise." The film quickly became a critical and commercial smash hit worldwide, as audiences confirmed Trekkers and newcomers alike thrilled to a state-of-the-art action epic which both respected the legacy of Gene Roddenberry s archetypal modern myth and forged ahead into an exciting future of its own. "Star Trek: The Art of the Film" is a lavishly illustrated celebration of that new vision, tracing the evolution of the movie s look through a stunning array of previously unseen pre-production paintings, concept sketches, costume and set designs, unit photography and final frames. Written by "New York Times"-bestselling author Mark Cotta Vaz in close co-operation with the film s production team, and including a Foreword by J.J. Abrams, this is the essential companion to the film."
