Lousy 3D Trailer for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ is Burning My Retinas

Paramount sent out some 3D glasses to press and apparently people you signed up at the viral website for Star Trek Into Darkness and today the reason why has been released in the form of an old-fashioned 3D trailer for the film. You’ll need the anaglyph red-and-blue glasses to view the trailer, but based on my little experiment with the glasses sent to me you’re probably better off not even trying. I’m still not sure my left eye is working properly.

Fortunately the theatrical conversion of the film utilizes 3D as we have come to expect it, but while I won’t review the film just yet, I will recommend seeing it in good old fashioned 2D… more on that down the line.

For now, here’s a taste of what the film would look like with offsetting colors that never quite align. Can you believe this is how people used to have to watch a 3D movie? How could they last the duration of an entire film?
