Stars Trek Into Darkness And Also London
J.J. Abrams sci-fi sequel premieres!

03 May 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Last night J.J. Abrams and the cast of his USS Enterprise boldly went where quite a few people have gone before: to Leicester Square. But unlike all previous visitors, they did so for the premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness, which saw the square decked out in its sci-fi best for the occasion.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban, Alice Eve and Simon Pegg were all there for the occasion, with support from director J.J. Abrams, writers Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci and producer Bryan Burke. They were interviewed on a set resembling the brig of the Enterprise as they walked the carpet, before introducing the film to wild applause.

Star Trek Into Darkness is out, of course, on May 9 here in the UK and on May 17 in the US (apart from some US IMAX screens, where it starts on May 15).

If you have the iPad edition of Empire, you can still get hold of our J.J. issue to read all about it; failing that, watch this space for more interviews and info on the film next week, and check out the trailer below or our trailer breakdown here.
