This week the TV Guide Channel’s "Hollywood 411" show did a brief segment on the new Star Trek movie, including some comments from director JJ Abrams, Zoe Saldana (Uhura) and Zachary Quinto (Spock). Not much is new, but the segment shows how the film is being positioned in the mainstream media. video below plus more photos from a recent event with Abrams and his stars.
VIDEO: Abrams, Quinto & Saldana pitch Trek
Much of the above video was shot at the recent Children’s Defense Fund "Beat the Odds" Awards in Los Angeles attended by Abrams, Saldana, Quinto as well as the new Kirk, Chris Pine (who is not in the video). Here are more pics of JJ and his crew from the event.
NOTE: Some fans have wondered where Karl Urban is in these shots, however this is not an official Paramount publicity shoot, just a charity event attended by Abrams and some available cast members. Bear in mind that not all cast members even live in the Los Angeles area, Karl Urban (McCoy) lives in New Zealand and Simon Pegg (Scotty) lives in the UK…so chill.
