Bruce Greenwood Talks STAR TREK 2, Robert Zemeckis’ FLIGHT, Derek Cianfrance’s THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES and Atom Egoyan’s DEVIL’S KNOT

     July 27, 2012


On the red carpet at tonight’s Saturn Awards, I was able to interview Bruce Greenwood.  We talked about J.J. Abrams Star Trek sequel, Robert Zemeckis’ Flight, Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines with Ryan Gosling, Atom Egoyan‘s Devil’s Knot (which also stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth and follows the true story of the West Memphis Three case), and more.

For fans of Star Trek, I asked Greenwood about filming with IMAX cameras, what the first few days were like on set, lens flairs, what it was like being on a fully constructed Enterprise bridge, and the size of Pike’s role in the sequel.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.
