J.J. Abrams: Star Trek 2 will make fans cry

Jan 24 2013, 12:09am CST | by

'Star Trek: Into Darkness' will be an emotional rollercoaster.

Director J.J. Abrams promises the sequel to 2009's franchise reboot will have audiences in tears at the end of the film thanks to its message of hope and love triumphing over fear.

He told MTV: ''The goal of this movie is to make you cry. If the movie does its job, then by the end of the movie, you will have had a reaction involving the eyes. If the movie works, then there's definitely an emotional component.

''[It is] very much about hope, about love, about romance, and about facing something that is truly terrifying and finding a way through the connection of your family and surviving and being stronger afterwards.''

Zachary Quinto, who plays Captain Spock, added that the Entreprise crew will be put in far greater danger than ever before by Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous ''terrorist'' character John Harrison.

He said: ''There's reason to worry. There is an insidiousness and ruthlessness and fierce intelligence to [Harrison] that almost undermines the interconnectivity of the crew. The stakes are much higher.''

Although famously secretive filmmaker J.J. has kept quiet about details of the project, he recently confessed he was counting down the days until fans got to see the finished product and the sheer brilliance of Benedict's performance.

He enthused: ''I just can't wait for people to see the movie. Benedict is unbelievable. It's a tall order, coming into that movie, because the crew of the 'Enterprise' - that cast - is so damn good and they're wonderful to work with and they're all good hearts.

''I not only love him in the movie, but I love him, as a human being. He's an amazing guy. I can't wait for people to see the movie and experience what he's done.''
