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.''

STAR WARS EPISODE VII Concept Image Depicts Epic Lightsaber Duel

Sep 26 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Collider

Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I've seen from the movie so far.  It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber.  It's epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively).  The ...

New Concept Art Reveals STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Chrome Trooper

Remember last month when some genuine concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII started popping up, revealing the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo?  Well the same source is at it again, as they’ve now revealed a Chrome Trooper image by way of even more concept art.  Thankfully this isn’t incredibly spoilerly, but it’s neat to see how director J.J.

STAR TREK 3 Might Include William Shatner… If He Decides to Show Up

Sep 22 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Collider

I remember the friction between William Shatner and J.J. Abrams before the release of Star Trek reboot in 2009.  If I recall, there were some awkward exchanges (and even videos) bandied about regarding Shatner's displeasure with his cameo being cut.  For whatever reason he didn't appear in Star Trek Into Darkness either, but now there's a sliver of hope to confuse the timeline even more in Star Trek 3. Apparent ...

Even though J.J. Abrams is currently busy in a galaxy far, far away, he’s still got time to turn back the clock to November 22, 1963 to explore what might happen if someone got the opportunity to go back in time and stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy because it was just announced that Hulu gave the adaptation of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 a direct-to-series order. Bad Robot, King, executive producer-writer Bridget Carpenter and Warner Bros.

The STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and BATMAN V SUPERMAN War Continues with a First Official Look at the Return of the Millennium Falcon

Sep 18 2014 11:05am CDT | Source: Collider

Directors J.J. Abrams and Zack Snyder have been going back-and-forth online by parodying their respective blockbusters, Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Snyder struck the most recent blow by showing a Stormtrooper getting arrested for hi-jacking Batman's ride.  Abrams has retorted in a way that will be tough to top.  He's stolen the Batmobile back and placed it on the underside of the Millennium Falcon.  And this isn't just a cutesy ...

Daniels Talks C-3PO's Look in Episode VII

Sep 17 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: ign

C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels has revealed that he won't just be voicing the lovable (but sometimes irritating) protocol droid in Star Wars: Episode VII, but actually acting as him in a practical suit as well. In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Daniels said that director J.J. Abrams initially asked if he'd be up for just voicing C-3PO. That drew an emphatic no from Daniels. "He knew I’d say that," said Daniels wh ...
