While in Australia for the World Premiere* of Star Trek last week, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto sat down with Bruce Moyle of CoolShite.net to talk about J.J. Abrams’ reboot of the classic series. This very entertaining ten-minute interview covers such ground as contacting Shatner and Nimoy, the daunting task of stepping into such iconic roles, and what the future holds for the franchise. This is by far the best insight we’ve gotten so far from this dynamic duo.
I have been stoked about this project for months … but between this interview and the slew of rave reviews the film has received, my excitement is now operating on all thrusters. Star Trek opens May 7, 2009.
* Star Trek made its unofficial premiere hours before the one Down Under, at a theater in Austin, Texas where a showing of Star Trek II – The Wrath of Khan was scheduled. Leonard Nimoy was on hand, and gave those in attendance the thrill of a lifetime.
