Pine, Quinto, and Saldana talk Into Darkness
Chris Pine, Zoe Zachary Quinto, and Saldana talk to Extra about Star Trek Into Darkness. This interview appears to have been one at last month’s Bad Robot event and doesn’t seem to add much, but it is interesting to see how the movie is being promoted in the mainstream Entertainment press on TV.
“Extra’s” Ben Lyons asked, "Does it feel like there’s more pressure this time around because you raised the bar so high?” Chris, “I suppose I feel more pressure with this one.” Zach saying, “This one really took me to a new limit.” A new limit for an on-screen bromance as well. Zach tells Ben, “Kirk really earns his leadership. Spock really earns the understanding of friendship.”
Spock also lands the woman, Zoe Saldana. Ben asked Zoe, “There’s gonna be a romantic theme to the two of you?” Zoe, not giving any secrets away, said, “Whether they’re together or not that will remain to be seen. But come on, I’m not gonna ruin the element of surprise!” Zoe continued, joking, “I signed papers, trust me! I will lose a kidney if I say too much!”
The actors were careful not to reveal any specific details about the plot, but on his own impressions of the film, Zach saying, “Even though you think you can imagine how big it’s gonna be when you’re shooting it, it never quite translates to how staggering it is on the big screen.”
