IAR's very own Guest Correspondent Katherine Tulich recently had a chance to travel to London, England and sit down with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto to talk about their work on Star Trek Into Darkness. The two popular actors discussed the new movie, its homage to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Spock's fight scenes, why the Vulcan is angrier in this sequel, Quinto's relationship with the legendary Leonard Nimoy, and Pine's experience acting opposite the film's mysterious villain, who is played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for a special Easter Egg at the end of the video featuring Pine singing a line from the classic Bon Jovi song "Wanted Dead or Alive."
