En La Oscuridad Premieres In Mexico
TrekMovie was on the red carpet in Mexico City for the Mexico premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness (or as it is known in Latin America "En La Oscuridad"). Director JJ Abrams was there to show off the movie, joined by actors Alice Eve, Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana. TrekMovie had quick moments to chat with Abrams, Eve and Saldana (in Spanish), but unfortunately Chris didn’t have time to stop. Here is our red carpet video.
And here are some excerpts.
JJ Abrams on how directing Star Trek and Into Darkness was different
I am always learning from my mistakes and I make enough of them so I learn a lot. I feel like the fun of doing this movie was not only getting to work with this cast again and making a deeper, bigger, better movie, but also even in four years what we could do technically expanded. So I knew we had to do some real cool stuff visually.
Zoe Saldana on the most challenging thing playing Uhura (translated from Spanish)
Learning to move in the tiny, tight dress. It presented a real dilemma for me.
Alice Eve on if she is a Trek fan
When I was younger I watched it with my grandfather so I knew it then, but now I am a real fan
Photos from Mexico
Here are some of the official Paramount photos from the Mexico premiere. As with all the premieres, the stars took time to take photos with fans and sign autographs.
Here is the group posing and on stage addressing the audience.
And here are some images from a photocall from earlier in the day.
Finally after JJ Abrams finished with his interview with us he stepped away but then returned to autograph the the Mexico Star Club sign.
