Second Installment in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” Franchise, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, wraps up weeks of Premieres across the world with star-studded premiere at Hollywood and Highland Entertainment Complex.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” opens in the U.S. tomorrow and the cast and crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise wrapped up weeks of premieres all over the globe on Tuesday with a celebrity-filled premiere on Hollywood Blvd.
Director J.J. Abrams joined writer Damon Lindelof and producers Bryan Burk and Jeffrey Chernov in welcoming celebrities from the cast and the world of TV and Film to the Dolby Theatre at Holllywood and Highland for the final screening before the film opens in the U.S.
Chris Pine (James T. Kirk), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Karl Urban (Bones), John Cho (Sulu), Alice Eve (Dr. Carol Marcus) and Bruce Greenwood (Pike) all turned out to greet fans and members of the press to talk about “Star Trek Into Darkness” and what surprises are in store for audiences.
After an attack on a Starfleet subdivision in London, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise track fugitive John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) into enemy territory. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew must determine who to trust and what the truth might actually be while trying to save themselves and their world.
The film is an action-packed ride from start to finish. The dialogue is witty and fast-moving and the actors have settled into the characters in this second film. Benedict Cumberbatch is outstanding as Harrison and Chris Pine proves a worthy adversary as Kirk and Karl Urban and Simon Pegg provide fantastic comic relief as Bones and Scotty respectively.
The film clocks in at just over 2 hours which is a perfect running time to allow that no part of the film drags.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” opens in the U.S. May 17th.
