JJ Abrams Talks Star Trek Into Darkness Challenges: Plus New Stills
We are about a month away from JJ Abrams‘ Star Trek sequel hitting theaters. The movie is still very secretive, but we’ve seen several trailers and stills from the film. Abrams recently set down with the Omelet, via Collider, to talk about the challenges of making the sequel. During the roughly four-minute chat, Abrams talked about making a character-centric story to reintroduce the crew as if there wasn’t a first movie and keeping secrets since his days on TV with Lost and Alias.
TrekMovie also unveiled some new stills in HD today. The crew of the Enterprise are accounted for as well as Benedict Cumberbatch‘s villainous “John Harrison.” There are a few more previously released stills in HD over at the site. You can click here to see the rest. Star Trek Into Darkness lands in theaters May 17.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
