CinemaCon: Chris Pine Talks STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, Filming the Bridge Scenes First, and Says He Sees the Film Friday for the First Time

     April 16, 2013


Earlier tonight at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Paramount showed almost twenty minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness to attendees.  If you saw the extended Star Trek preview before The Hobbit a few months ago, you saw part of what they showed tonight.  But while that preview ended with someone trapped in a very bad situation, the footage tonight showed the next few minutes of that sequence, plus an amazing scene in space that took full advantage of 3D.   If you had any doubts about the Trek sequel, everything I saw tonight tells me it’s going to be something special.

Shortly before the presentation started, I spoke to Chris Pine on the red carpet.  He talked about how J.J. Abrams love secrecy and how he does as well, what it was like to spend the first few weeks of filming doing the Bridge scenes, is it finally nice to be able to talk about the movie, and he reveals that he finally sees the finished film this Friday before leaving on the worldwide press tour.  Hit the jump to watch.

Chris Pine:

  • Is it nice to finally be able to talk about the movie
  • Talks about how Abrams love secrecy and how he does as well
  • How the first few weeks of filming they did the bridge sequences
  • Has he seen a rough cut of the film yet?  Says he sees it Friday. The day before they all go to Sydney.
