The cast and crew of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' are currently on a whirlwind publicity tour. Starting in Sydney, then Moscow and Germany, now London. We had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban (aka Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy) whose comic relief performance in this sequel is just as terrific as in the first.
He does, however, get to do a little scientific work in the picture, and some of it involves medical tests from some old fuzzy franchise friend – the Tribbles.
Sharp-eyed viewers saw a Tribble in the 2009 picture (it's on Scotty's desk during the Delta Vega sequence) but this time he's front and center. We asked Urban about working with a Tribble and he told us a surprising fact.
Perhaps the title was a pretty clear indication of what to expect, but 'Star Trek Into Darkness' looks a little bleak, huh? For a series that's been built on the concept of humanity standing together and bettering itself, it sure is odd to see the phrase "Earth will fall" in a newly released TV spot.
We barely know who the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' villain is (OK, well we pretty much know) - is it possible that at this early stage we've already got a pretty solid idea as to who the 'Star Trek 3' villain will be? Writer/producer Damon Lindelof spoke on the film's red carpet and dropped some information as to who will be facing off against in 'Star Trek 3.'
The latest 'Star Trek Into Darkness' poster is perhaps the coolest, with the USS Enterprise being chased by the much larger, much more intimidating USS Vengeance.
J.J. Abrams filmed a scene for 2009's 'Star Trek' that featured Klingons but the scene was eventually cut from the movie. While Abrams has been cagey about Khan, he's always been up front that there would - finally - be Klingons in 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' Up until now, we've only seen a fleeting glimpse of what a J.J. Abrams Klingon looked like with its helmet on. But today we get our first look at the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Klingons without their masks. And the verdict is?
'Star Wars' fans needn't worry about whether their favorite composer will return to score the new 'Episode 7'-led trilogy -- director J.J. Abrams assures us John Williams will be coming back.
The latest clip from 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is the most intense yet, showing a confrontation between a heated Captain Kirk and his prisoner, the terrorist John Harrison.
Ever the busy producer, J.J. Abrams not only has 'Star Trek,' 'Star Wars' and 'Revolution' on his plate, his company Bad Robot is looking to get the rights to Stephen King's '11/22/63' and bring it to the small screen.
'Star Trek Into Darkness' is looking to be one hell of a movie as the first reviews are starting to trickle out of the premieres. Now, how about your 'Star Trek' fix for the day, huh? Hopefully you said yes to that, 'cause we have a new batch of footage and posters.
J.J. Abrams gave his first extensive interview on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' to Playboy and spoke at length about the challenges of being in control of 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' - two of the biggest sci-fi franchises in history. He talks about how he'll be collaborating with George Lucas, his feeling on the prequels and how you shouldn't assume he won't direct 'Star Trek 3.'
