Star Trek star Zachary Quinto showed up on Conan and talked a little bit about playing Spock in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness. He also showed off a fun little clip from the film as well... it's just not really accurate with what we will see in the film. While on the show he also talked about President Barack Obama giving him the Vulcan salute.
Below the video of Quinto on Conan you can read part on an interview with Abrams where he talks about the movie and what it was like shooting it IMAX.
Here's what Abrams had to say about the movie in an interview with IGN:
You know, I’m excited because we’ve been working on this for awhile, and the idea of getting some of the movie out there to the world is going to be a real thrill for us, and as always you just hope people will like what they see.
As for his experince shooting parts of the movie in IMAX he said:
It was amazing. Part of it was challenging because of the technical aspects of it, the machinery of it. The cameras themselves are a little unwieldy and a little loud and unpredictable. But then you go to dailies and you watch on this massive screen these images that you’ve shot having been filmed on a negative that’s eight times bigger than what you normally use, and you cannot believe how good it looks. So that’s exciting! But unlike Ghost Protocol, a lot of what we shot is integrated into special effects and visual effects in a way that I cannot wait for people to see. I think it really is mind-blowing, how it looks. The IMAX frame, I think, is really the best way to see a movie.
This is defintely going to be a film that I need to see in IMAX! I love that Abrams is excited about it. The movie hits theaters on May 17th, 2013!
