Zachary Quinto Talks STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, Filming the Bridge Sequences First, IMAX, 3D, and Says He Sees the Film Friday for the First Time

     April 16, 2013


A few minutes before the Star Trek Into Darkness cast hit the CinemaCon stage yesterday in Las Vegas, I landed a video interview with Zachary Quinto on the red carpet.  While J.J. Abrams and Paramount have slowly been releasing more images and footage from the Star Trek sequel (click here to watch the new trailer), the cast is still very careful about saying anything specific about the anxiously awaited sequel.  Knowing this before the interview started, I made sure to only ask Quinto questions he could answer like what it was like to film the bridge sequences first, working with the IMAX cameras, whether he’s seen a rough cut yet (the entire cast sees the film for the first time this Friday before leaving for Sydney), and more.  In addition, he also talked about why he thinks Star Trek Into Darkness being in 3D is a good thing.  Hit the jump to watch.

And if you missed my video interview with Chris Pine, click here.
