Re: The budget for STID

I think the TMP budget of $40 million has been debunked as being false because it included all the aborted attempts at making a Trek Movie or TV Show from the previous 5 years. I think the true budget is $25 million and the rest is from aforementioned aborted attempts.

On top of all that they had to fire the VFX people they had hired initially and hire two more FX houses to get them out of the shit.
I think that's why TheNumbers.com had the budget at $35 million.

So much money seems to be required to make the CGI look like they're still working with photorealistic models, miniatures and matte paintings.
And yet from the trailers of STID, you can certainly see all the models and effects are CGI - maybe even more than with 2009's movie? There seems to be an overstylized glow/lighting to objects which breaks the photorealism - it looks like they're aiming for 'SimCity 2013' style:

Ya no one doing those shots is aiming to make anything look like a miniature or a matte painting. The goal is to make it look real, within the context of the narrative. Period.

And I guarantee that shot of Spock isnt finished. While I think it looks okay, not perfect but okay, it's only a temp version created for the trailer. Im sure the final shot will have a higher level or refinement and detail.

The CG is definitely unfinished - it keeps changing between trailers!

I only started seeing this bandied about recently, so I figured I'd post it: $185 million...
Was reported by Digital Spy back in August, in fact. There was a thread about it here, but not too much has been made of it since.
Totally missed that.
