A new image has surfaced from Star Trek Beyond showing Idris Elba’s villain up against a certain starship captain.
Entertainment Weekly has released a new interview with Star Trek Beyond villain Idris Elba about his new mysterious character. Along with it came this new shot from the film.
Elba talked about the villain, named Krall, and how he is a totally new addition to the Star Trek Universe.
Yes. What’s interesting about him is that he has a real beef with what the Enterprise stands for. Krall’s a character who’s deeply steeped in hatred — in my opinion, a well-earned hatred — for the Federation. It felt quite political. There’s a relatability to what’s happening in our world. Not everybody’s happy with what everybody calls the good guys.
Krall is predatory. He’s not one for big speeches. He is one for going to get what he wants. If that means having to do it himself, outside of his army, he is not afraid to do that.
As with any latex-clad Star Trek actor, Elba talked about the hard work of putting on the makeup and costume each day.
Typically, my day would start at 4:15 in the morning. I’d be in the chair until around 7:30, shoot about 8:30. Shot ‘til around 9 at night, maybe later. Get home, unwind, get to sleep, and then wake up in the morning and do the whole thing again. It was definitely an extensive process. I learned so much about working with prosthetics, and how that can influence the performance. I’m claustrophobic by the way; I don’t like rubber masks on my face.
