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.
"If you're a Trekker, this is without reservation a must-own book....this collection is packed with so many stunning visuals that it's worth plopping down on you living room table just for the eye candy alone." - Cinematical.com "Titan Books has once again delivered a companion book that is a must-have for any fan of the film.
