The stars and film-makers of Star Trek Into Darkness were in London this week for the UK press conference. In attendance were Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Alice Eve, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and Benedict Cumberbatch. The films director J.J. Abrams and his writing team of Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof were also there to talk about the brand new Trek movie at London’s iconic City Hall.
The press conference was full of anecdotes from the cast and crew about their feelings towards their characters, the direction this new movie takes and the challenges associated with playing such iconic roles.
Star Trek Into Darkness follows on from the popular 2009 reboot and features Benedict Cumberbatch as a terrorist with a grudge against Starfleet. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise are tasked with bringing him to justice.
