Bruce Greenwood Exclusive Video Interview – STAR TREK

I’ve seen “Star Trek” twice. I saw a screening so I could cover the press day, and I also went to the premiere the other night. So what did I learn after watching it a second time? It actually got better.

Since I’m not going to spoil it for any of you, all I want to say is….

If you were nervous about the cast, don’t be. If you thought J.J. Abrams is just a TV director…he’s stepped up his game to the next level. And if you were somehow thinking Paramount was going to nickel and dime the franchise like they’ve done in the past, the special effects in this film are going to shock you.

Simply put, “Star Trek” has opened the summer movie season with a huge home run and I don’t know how anyone will be disappointed.

Anyway, at the Los Angeles press junket I got to speak with the entire cast and the filmmakers. Yesterday I posted my video interview with Eric Bana, and now it’s time for my interview with Brice Greenwood -who plays Captain Pike.

During out time we talked about how he prepared for the role, what was it like to work for J.J. Abrams, did he catch all the easter eggs in the film for fans, and a lot more.

Finally, I’ve also posted 6 clips from “Star Trek”, so click here if you’d like to watch them.And I’ve joined the ever growing world of Twitter.

“Star Trek” warps into our galaxy next weekend. Don’t miss it. And look for another video interview tomorrow.
