New Star Trek Into Darkness Images In Entertainment Weekly
As we reported yesterday, the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on newstands Friday) features two collectible Star Trek covers. Today EW is teasing more of the issue including this synopsis of the film:
What is known: This time around the headstrong Kirk violates Starfleet orders and jeopardizes his command in order to take the Enterprise on the trail of a terrorist who launches spirit-crushing attacks on London and San Francisco. Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch plays the bad guy in question, a man called John Harrison who’s described by co-writer Alex Kurtzman as a ”member of Starfleet who turns on Starfleet.”
And here are the new photos…
More excerpts from the issue available at EW.com.
UPDATE: More from Abrams, Quinto and Orci
TrekMovie had a chance to read the feature story and here are a couple more excerpts…
Abrams on the four-year gap between his two Star Trek films…
"It would have been better probably for the studio [if we’d put it out earlier], because it would have been fresher in people’s minds. But I’m happy we didn’t rush it. It wouldn’t have been a better movie if it came out earlier. I know that. "
Quinto on Spock and Uhura’s relationship
I think we tapped into something in the first film that a lot of people weren’t expecting, which is the emotional undercurrent and how powerfully it runs through him. That continues in this film. There are things that happen to him—and things that he’s part of–that are incredibly personal… That was really exciting for me both physically and emotionally"
Roberto Orci on Abrams directing Star Wars and future of Trek
For J.J. this is achieving a childhood dream–Star Wars is waht got him in the business. So Watching him go to his super Bowl like this? It’s genuinely joyful for mr. [But] as a guy who is in love with Star Trek and in love with this version of it? It puts a scared lump on my throat. It’s like hearing one of the band members is going to do a solo album. I know Star Wars is going to be the better for it. And I suspect Star Trek will be fine with the rest of us here."
