Just a few short days ago, Chris Pine talked briefly about his experience on Star Trek 2saying the film would keep its comedic elements, but the crew of the Starship Enterprise would face an even greater threat.  Now, co-star Zachary Quinto has a few words of his own to share on the J.J. Abrams’ sequel, calling it “bigger and bolder.”  Quinto had much more than that to say, and you can read it after the jump.

Star Trek 2, also starring Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve and Benedict Cumberbatch opens May 17th, 2013. 

Chris Pine Says STAR TREK 2 Will Have Comedic Elements, But the Crew Will Face a Greater Threat

While Chris Pine is currently shooting Jack Ryan in downtown Manhattan (you can see images of him and Kevin Costner here), he recently spoke out about the tone of Star Trek 2.  Specifically, Pine was quick to mention that the J.J. Abrams sequel doesn’t follow the rules set down by Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, which says a follow-up film should be “like the original, only darker.”  As the first Star Trek had its lighter moments (Pine’s Kirk having an allergic reaction and being repeatedly injected by Bones), the sequel appears to keep the comedic element amidst a greater threat to Starfleet.

Also starring Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve and Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek 2 opens May 17th, 2013.  Hit the jump to read what Pine had to say.

Karl Urban came to Comic-Con with the intention of bringing some exclusive footage from Star Trek 2.  He teased the release of the footage by the end of the week and delivered on his promise.  However, it’s not exactly what we expected to see.  Urban was in hot water earlier for a possible slip up during an interview in which he may have revealed the villain in the upcoming untitled sequel.  Writer Damon Lindelof reportedly said that he had no idea what the footage was that Urban was referencing and said the prankster was “off the reservation.”  Now, it’s the end of Comic-Con and some Star Trek 2 footage has finally been released.  Hit the jump to check it out (and keep your expectations in check as well).

J.J. Abrams Sneaks Klingon Screenshot Into MTV Movie Awards; Possible Villains in STAR TREK 2? (Update: The Klingons Will Be Featured in the Sequel.)

The Klingons pictured above are angry at being left on the cutting room floor of JJ Abrams’ 2009 film, Star Trek; it’s possible the director will make amends by including them in the as-of-yet untitled sequel, Star Trek 2.   At the MTV Movie Awards last night, Abrams participated in a skit that misdirected your attention onto Jennifer Lawrence’s hotness and Joel McHale’s terrible archery skills.  What you may have missed is an intentionally included screenshot of a Klingon warrior on a monitor behind Abrams.  Reportedly, this isn’t an old screenshot from the 2009 film, but an image that was added to the skit on purpose.  Does it confirm that Klingons will be in the sequel? Maybe not, but it does confirm that Abrams likes to dick with us.  Hit the jump to check out the image. (Update: HitFix has confirmed that the image is from the sequel and that it features a real live Klingon.)

If we can trust the Tweet, then Star Trek 2 and Zachary Quinto have officially wrapped.  Quinto sent out an image and a brief message over Twitter today that would suggest the follow up to J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 Star Trek has wrapped.  After these set photos and video initially leaked earlier this year, we haven’t see a whole lot out of the Starfleet camp (here’s a hat).  Quinto stays the course with this Tweet, as far as images go, but it’s good to know the production has wrapped up.  Maybe now we can get an official title.  The Untitled Star Trek Sequel, starring Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho, Alice Eve, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Benedict Cumberbatch. , opens May 17th, 2013.  Hit the jump to see the image along with a recap of what we know about the sequel.
