It’s a damn good time to be a Trekkie.
After over four years of practically NOTHING (unless you count three frames of footage and a few blurry snapshots of the film set), the past few weeks have seen a sudden flood of shiny new goodies from the next installment of the Star Trek Reboot. Between the official synopsis, the teaser poster, the trailer, the first (spoilery!) movie still, AND the first 9 minutes of the film airing in IMAX 3D screenings of The Hobbit, I barely knew what to do with myself.
To top it all off, interviews with the cast of Star Trek into Darkness have started showing up online. It feels like an old band getting back together and touring after a long hiatus. And it fucking rocks.
Here’s my favorite interview so far, from ET Online. In which the cast and J. J. Abrams undergo a “warp speed” trivia round.
