Photo of the Day: Armwrestling Kirks!

A couple of weeks ago Star Trek’s William Shatner revealed that for his The Captains documentary he chose to start off his interview with Star Trek’s Chris Pine with some arm-wrestling. Today the first image of this Kirk v Kirk moment has been revealed, check it out.

 

Kirk v Kirk

Today EPIXHD sent out the following preview image from The Captains via Twitter.


Its Kirk Prime v Kirk 2.0

A couple weeks ago in an interview with canoe.ca, Shatner described the arm-wresting moment:

He’s shy. So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.

Seeing this picture just makes me wonder the chemistry they could have had on screen if Kirk Prime was in the sequel. Oh well.

This pic is full of win~

I think there is still a chance if they are willing to explore the option in the third film. Perhaps as a way to reset the time line and still allow the 2.0 crew to complete missions unseen on the series or in between films? There are so many possibilities.

My money is on Shat to win,. Go Shat go!!

June 24, 2011 7:53 pm

Hilarious. Probably just a ploy by Shatner to work that voodoo soul switching trick he’s been working on…y’know…Pine ends up in his body while he transfers to Pine’s.

He’ll do anything to get in the sequel.

It’s a tie! Neither will want the other one to lose…

June 24, 2011 8:52 pm

I like # 4’s comment.

And after only seeing the pic and not even reading the article….I say again…..I love Shatner.

June 24, 2011 8:57 pm

We know how it ends. Kirk wins.

Keachick (rose pinenut)
June 24, 2011 9:08 pm

That’s right, of course. Kirk does not believe in a no-win scenario!

I have to say that Shatner and Pine look great together, but then why wouldn’t the two guys who play(ed) “my captain” so well look good? Lovely sunny day as well, I see. That always helps.

WTF is wrong with you guys who continue to not have Shatner involved in Star Trek? Don’t get me wrong, I love what you guys did with the first film, but having Shatner in the new film is a no-brainer

Give Kirk Prime the ending he deserves before it’s too late.

I hope I am as active as The Shat at 80 as he. It’s a confirmation that you have to love what you do in life to be that active and engaging and energized to go after life’s personal pursuits.

Peter Falk died yesterday. PBS did a story with a clip from Columbo. The clip features Columbo nailing the Shat. And if you watch it, William Shatner really has a real presence or as some of you Shat haters would say overbearing presence. Check out the clip from PBS below.

Columbo nails William Shatner.

Fun photo! I bet Shatner even went to Admiral Nogura to regain command of the new Enterprise, but it looks like he’s finally made peace with having to hand over center seat.

I know we don’t NEED Shatner in Trek 2, but looking at that picture can’t help you wonder just how amazing it would be to see Kirk Prime and Kirk up against each other.

June 25, 2011 5:09 am

Shatner: “Queen to Queen’s level three, Captain Kirk?”

Quinto’s Spock is waiting over in the corner to see who wins, or recommends he shoot both of them, to ensure the safety of the Enterprise.

June 25, 2011 5:12 am

That’s right! Bill for the Garth of Izar role, in (the Star Trek sequel) To Boldly Go…

June 25, 2011 5:14 am

…and a cameo for Scott Bakula, as grouchy old Admiral Archer.

June 25, 2011 5:18 am

Oh Bob, Bob? You guys need a hand with that script? Heh-heh. I’ve just figured out a whole storyline and a way to make this work. :-) ;-|

Shatner won, but only because he closed his eyes and imagined that he was breaking george Takei’s arm!

Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire
June 25, 2011 5:39 am

Shat Kirk won only because he used a portable agoniser on Pine Kirk.

someone should photostop a TWOK style uniform onto Shatner and the yellow shirt onto Pine and change the backdrop to the bar from ST09

closest we’ll get to shat in a nuTrek film

I think the universe is going to break with these two meeting….it canna handle to Jim Kirk’s battlining out in the same space time continuum!

Cue in the ‘Amok Time’ battle music!

Ok, now I feel like I can finally accept Chris Pine as the new Kirk. Abrams’s biggest mistake was not letting Shatner be involved with the movie.

As the two Kirks arm wrestle each other, the Kirk Prime says,”I’m Captain Kirk!”…in response Young Kirk replies,” No, I’m Captain Kirk!”…as this verbal tug of war continues on until Captain Kirk finally wins the match…whichever one that would be. ;-)

If William Shatner starred in the next movie as an older Captain Kirk, I can absolutely see his character being a father figure to his younger self.

@48, it is amazing. The shape of their noses and jaw lines are similar. He could have played his grandfather or uncle.

MJ
June 25, 2011 3:39 pm

@48. Yea, they are like twins separated by age only. Their profiles, every last detail about them…it’s just so creepy how much they look alike. Their facial expression, nuances in the way they speak, eyebrow movements, etc. It is like they are a clone of the same person.
