Our long, slow trek into darkness is almost over. We've seen and reviewed the 'Star Trek' sequel and soon you will, too. (Well, you'll see it – whether your review will be anything more than saying, “hey, that was fun!” as you go out for Whoppers afterwards is up to you.)
The Federated States of Bad Robot have made a global sweep of the world's press, starting in Sydney and ending in Los Angeles. We put a call into sick bay and had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban, back on board the Enterprise as the lovable curmudgeon Dr. Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy. Urban's take on Starfleet's finest chief medical officer is a welcome bit of comic relief in 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so much so that it took great self-restraint to keep from begging him to shout “dammit!' over the phone. We did, however, touch upon other topics.
If 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is anything like its predecessor, it's going to be a visually stunning film filled with some seriously intense action. Well, if there was any doubt about that, go ahead and erase it. A new clip from the film has arrived and it looks to be very much in line with what has come before.
For some 'Star Trek' fans, it was a slap to the face when director J.J. Abrams stopped going where no man has gone before and decided to journey to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How will they feel when they see Abrams discussing how great 'Star Wars' is with the chief engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (aka Simon Pegg)?
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.
'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.
