Abrams talks costumes
Like the EW cover story, Empire spoke to Star Trek director JJ Abrams. You have to pick up the magazine to read the full interview, but Empire offers this teaser online of Abrams talking about the wardrobe:
For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project, which was how to take something that’s kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary colour costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It’s ridiculous and as potentially cliched as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?
New images from the film
NOTE: This is not yet confirmed, but the actor on the left appears to be Greg Ellis who is playing Chief Engineer Olsen (see TrekMovie article for more on Ellis)
UPDATE: Empire added one more image
