Star_Trek_Into_Darkness

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a man known as JJ Abrams who would find his way into the lives of every cult TV, and sci-fi fan’s life. He proved himself with his own creation Lost, he will soon be cradling the new born Star Wars movie in his arms, but for now he has taken the beloved Star Trek franchise to places where no man has gone before.

People were nervous when Star Trek was being rebooted a few years back, but most sighed with relief when it was actually pretty awesome. It’s now time for the second outing of the Enterprise and everyone is nervous to see if the second movie will match or better the first. In these press conference highlights you’ll hear thoughts and insights into making Star Trek into Darkness from the cast and crew which includes director JJ Abrams, and most of the key cast members Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Alice Eve and Simon Pegg. Sulu and Chekov fans beware, because John Cho and Anton Yelchin were absence from the otherwise impressive line up of attendees. Check out the full video highlights below:

In the video the cast and crew have fun talking about stealing from the set, the challenges of making a Star Trek movie, their characters and more. Benedict Cumberbatch answers how he approaches playing iconic roles such as Sherlock Holmes, Smaug the Dragon and his role in Star Trek Into Darkness and JJ Abrams is his usual tight lipped self when it comes to any mention, hint or clue about the plans for the new Star Wars movie, but talks on how Star Trek is a different beast altogether.
