With Star Trek Beyond opening in theaters next weekend, the other day I landed an exclusive video interview with stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Since they’ve been answering a lot of the same questions about Star Trek, plus the fact that I didn’t want to talk about spoilers from the movie, I decided to just ask some fun questions. We talked about what they collect, favorite video game consoles, if they were playing Pokemon Go, and — since Star Trek is all about alternate realities — is there a sci-fi franchise or the sci-fi movie they would have loved to have been part of?
As most of you know Star Trek Beyond finds the crew deep into their five-year mission, and brings Idris Elba into the fold as a villainous character, with Kingsman standout Sofia Boutella playing a new ally. Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin also star as director Justin Lin works from a script penned by Pegg and Doug Jung.
Check out the interview above and below you can find the official synopsis followed by some recent Star Trek links.
“Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
