ILM has released two new VFX featurettes for Star Trek Into Darkness, which is on the short list for a Visual Effects Oscar.  The first one is more of a montage of VFX shots that takes viewers behind the scenes of the opening action sequence that takes place on the vibrantly colored planet that just so happens to house an active volcano, a breakdown of the Enterprise’s hangar, and a wormhole space chase.  The second video takes a more in-depth look into the action sequence on the red planet, so keep an eye out for future featurettes that further explore the movie’s most intense scenes.  Hit the jump to watch.

Check out the VFX featurettes for Star Trek Into Darkness below:

Synopsis:

“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS,” directed by J.J. Abrams, follows the crew of The Enterprise as they are called back home to Earth in the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization.  In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.  As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
