The cast of Star Trek Into Darkness has been sworn to secrecy when it comes to the plot. But that hasn't stopped Chris Pine from giving us hints about a major scene that appears in the sequel.
While speaking with RadioTimes, Pine spoke about watching the film's villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, shoot a fairly difficult sequence.
"There's one scene in [Star Trek Into Darkness] that's like, you know ... in all kinds of heavy science fiction there's got to be the exposition scene where it's like, what the hell's going on? It's a really, really, really hard scene. Not for me, for Benedict—and watching him handle that and to make something that I think, on paper, could have been a death trap for an actor and to see how he [deals with it] ..."
But Cumberbatch doesn't have all the fun. Pine says Kirk will have his fair share of obstacles. "Kirk is fun because he is a brash, cocky, bullheaded kind of guy," Pine says. "I think the journey he goes on in this new film is a lot about—the first one was about getting the [captain's] chair and the second one is about earning it. And I think that is a big part of his journey."
We can't wait to see both men in action. Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters May 17.
