J.J. Abrams left a note on the Star Trek Facebook page informing everyone that all will be complete next week.
We’re just making final tweaks to the movie — we should be totally locked next week. Then we’re going to flash-freeze it so it’s totally fresh for you in May. I can’t wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I’m so grateful to this cast and crew — and to all of you for your interest and patience. We’ll continue to update this page with new info and exclusives, so check back when you think of it. In the meantime, have a happy, healthy, fun holiday!
From the last days of the sound mix,
Originally the release date was set for 25th December so I’m sure they would have completed it by then if they had to. However, they shifted the release date to May so i’m guessing they will put the final cut in a huge vault surrounded by laser beams and German Shepherds for 5 months.
