Star Trek 2 will be ‘relentless’

April 26th, 2012 by bash 2 Comments

Access Hollywood and Zap2It have spoken to Chris Pine and Benedict Cumberbatch, respectively, about the forthcoming Star Trek 2.

Pine, who plays a young Captain James T. Kirk, said he thought the new movie would be better than the first: “Of course I’m gonna tell you I think it’s gonna be better,” he laughed. “You pick up the characters from where they left off, and the development of the characters, I think, is just as exciting as the first one… And it’s relentless. I think that’s the best adjective I can use.”

As for Cumberbatch, who plays a villain in the sci-fi sequel, he said: “I’ve gone up two suit sizes. The character I’m playing, he’s strong. I can say that much. I’ve changed my physique a bit, so that requires eating like a foie gras goose, well beyond your appetite, And, providing I don’t feel too ill, I then work out two hours a day with a phenomenal trainer. It’s the L.A. way.”

Star Trek 2 also stars John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
