New Image + Pine Talks Terrorism in Into Darkness
The at LA Times has a short interview with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, which also includes this not seen image from Star Trek Into Darkness.
One of the interesting bits of the interview was talking about the real-world parallels in the movie, here is an excerpt:
“This film is about earthbound terror,” said Pine, speaking weeks before the real-life bombing at the Boston Marathon. “It’s about terrorism, about issues we as human beings in 2013 deal with every day, about the exploitation of fear to take advantage of a population, about physical violence and destruction but also psychological manipulation. John Harrison is a terrorist in the mold of those we’ve become accustomed to in this day and age.”
Lindelof: Into Darkness explores Enterprise tech
io9 has an interivew with Damon Lindelof from Cinemacon and one of the questions asked what kind of Trek science we will see in Into Darkness, here is what he said:
Lindelof: I don’t want to give away too much in terms of what surprises the movie has to offer. But I do think what’s cool about Trek is it’s not scifi fantasy. We view it as hardcore scifi. So you want there to be some sort of technological explanation behind everything. And one of the things that J.J. has been really interested in is to explain and show how the Enterprise works. We will be exploring sections of the ship, the Enterprise, that we’ve never seen before. And I think that will be really cool.
Damon also talks about how they approached time travel in the last movie and about the four year delay and they also talk to Zachary Quinto about Spock’s relationships with Kirk and Uhura, watch it at io9.
