Hangout with J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, the Cast of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS and NASA…Live from Space!

     May 14, 2013


There are those who boldly go where none have gone before on movie screens and those who do it in real life; you can chat with both during a Google+ Hangout with the cast and crew of Star Trek Into Darkness, plus real astronauts from NASA.  Director J.J. Abrams, writer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho will join Chris Cassidy, who is currently on the International Space Station, and Earth-bound astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren to talk Star Trek fiction and NASA fact.  More importantly, this is your chance to ask questions of both sets of space adventurers!  (Just don’t ask what happens when you wring out a washcloth in zero gravity.  It’s been done.)  Hit the jump for all the details.

Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Zachary QuintoZoe Saldana,Benedict CumberbatchKarl UrbanSimon PeggAnton Yelchin and Bruce Greenwood and opens in IMAX 3D tomorrow, and in both 2D and 3D in traditional theaters on May 16th.

star-trek-into-darkness-jj-abramsHere’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:

In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth.  In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
