'Star Trek: Into Darkness' Spoilers—Stars Hint At What's To Come
Star Trek Into Darkness stars Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana and director J.J. Abrams offered fans a few light spoilers about their upcoming movie in an interview with E! News.
Quinto, who plays Commander Spock in the film, touched on how his character’s relationship with Pine’s Captain James T. Kirk is explored in the movie.
“I think that each of them understands by the end of this film that in order to be their truest and fullest self and realize their potential, they need each other,” Quinto said.
Cumberbatch, meanwhile, provided some interesting insights about his villainous character, John Harrison.
“It was really important for me to give him something of the reptile,” Cumberbatch said. “The cool-blooded, cold-blooded even, thing of just something that was resting, this thing that has been very quiet and in repose and was preserving energy.”
Abrams, whom Saldana called "the most humorous character ever," stressed that approached the movie by "honoring what it is that they [the fans] loved and know about" Star Trek, while also trying to "boldly go where no one else has gone before." Check out the full interview here.
After Abrams's original installment, Star Trek, was such a success, earning nearly $400 million worldwide, there is great anticipation for the sequel.
