This is why Twitter is awesome. Yesterday, “Shaun of the Dead” director Edgar Wright went to his account to reveal that he shot a scene in the upcoming “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the highly anticipated latest installation in the J.J. Abrams “Star Trek” reboot (read our review here). The uber-secretive Abrams might not be so happy, but it was inevitable that things were going to leak with the film already open in the U.K., only a week until its official U.S. release and reviews pouring in. Just enough to keep us enticed, but not enough to give away any plot points (or really any aspect of the film). This is within days of the release of the trailer for Wright’s latest “The World’s End.”
We hear that the shot was in Klingon with Kirk (Chris Pine), Uhuru (Zoe Saldana), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and new villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). If rumors are true, we’re surprised that the scene didn’t involve long-time collaborator Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty.
So just a little Cornetto flavor before the full scoop later this summer with “The World’s End.”
