Various “Star Trek” Film Updates

Despite the trailer with that hint of a Kirk-Uhura sex scene, actor Chris Pine says the new “Star Trek” film has “no crazy sex scene”. He tells E! Online that “There may be some bare midriffs, but you know it’s been a long time since the bikini was invented, so I don’t think we’re going to ruffle any feathers.”

Pine also told The Associated Press of the upcoming “Star Trek” film that the story charts Kirk and Spock’s lives “to a small extent from boyhood and their first encounter, which is a bit contentious, to kind of the beginning of the relationship we all know”.

“They are at odds at first. The conflict of the relationship actually gives Zachary a couple moments where he’s not as controlled and rational as Mr. Nimoy’s character was. He has a couple of outbursts that aren’t exactly the classic Spock” he adds.

Also an extensive interview with scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman about the project has shown up at First Showing.
