Even more Star Trek goodies have arrived as the world waits for J.J. Abrams’ anticipated sequel, Into Darkness. The movie has been world premiering in select foreign territories, and will have a massive premiere celebration in London in a few days. But the rest of us are focusing on footage from the film, and how the plotline might unfold for a few of our favorite characters.
“If Spock were here and I were there, what would he do?” is a question asked by Kirk (Chris Pine) in a recent clip while his second-in-command tries to deactivate a volcano … from inside the fiery monstrosity. And the idea of “What would Spock do?” is reiterated in the Yahoo Movies clip (via StarTrek.com) centered on Spock as he’s targeted by John Harrison – or whomever Benedict Cumberbatch actually plays in the sequel. Cumberbatch says:
When you think about it, dividing Kirk and Spock makes all the sense in the world of the Trek series. One is ruled by logic, while the other is ruled by emotion. They shouldn’t work well together … and the conflicts debated by Kirk and Spock drive most of the greatest Trek episodes. In fact, I was having a conversation with a die-hard Trekkie recently about how Abrams’ movies are action-laden, but Trek -- as a franchise – is rooted in the exploration of big scientific ideas … and the arguments waged between the characters on board the Enterprise.
This new clip suggests that Abrams and his team are exploiting the conflict raging inside of Spock (Zachary Quinto), and that could make for high drama when Into Darkness finally reaches theaters on May 17.
