Exclusive: Empire Star Trek Cover
Plus images from our exclusive shoot
These are exciting times at Empire, because our new issue is about to hit shelves and it's jam-packed with exclusive images and interviews from JJ Abrams' Star Trek.
Not only does our cover replicate an iconic Kirk and Spock pose with the new cast, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, but we also shot special character images of both actors and scored some never-before-seen stills from the film itself, showing Kirk and Spock at work on the USS Enterprise.
We talked to both stars and director JJ Abrams about bringing Star Trek to a new generation (sorry) - and as a taster, here's what JJ had to say about the challenges he faced even in the wardrobe department. "For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project, which was how to take something that's kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary colour costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It's ridiculous and as potentially cliched as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?"
