STAR TREK 2 Set Video Shows Zachary Quinto Fighting

     February 27, 2012

The clear highlight from last week’s batch of Star Trek 2 set photos was Benedict Cumberbatch (highlight to read) and Zachary Quinto (and their stunt doubles) in a scuffle.  Tonight we have footage of the fight.  Admittedly, it will look much cooler in the theater when the green screen is filled in and the scene is properly shot and edited.  But I think you’ll find your imagination is willing to fill in some of the holes when it’s Spock vs. Sherlock.

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho, Alice Eve, Peter Weller, and Noel Clarke also star.  Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Trek 2 opens May 17, 2013.  Watch the clip after the jump.
