Post Kevin Smith Has Talked MORE About Trek!

More From Kevin Smith On Star Trek, Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana September 10, 2008

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: ST09 Cast, Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
A few weeks ago we first reported that Clerks director Kevin Smith gave a review of his early screening of JJ Abrams Star Trek. Now MTV got the geek insider, who seems to see everything early, to talk more about the movie as well as the new Kirk (Chris Pine) and also the new Uhura (Zoe Saldana).


Smith on seeing Star Trek:
“It’s really strong, [J.J. Abrams] was rejiggering the opening few scenes. It’s one of those things where you first heard about it and were like no they’re not going to redo ‘Star Trek’! And then you see the movie and you think, wow he did pull it off! He turned it into a viable renewed franchise.”
Smith on Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana:
Chris Pine is fantastic. It is a star-making performance. From his first scene forward, this dude is not doing an impression of Shatner. He is doing young Kirk. He doesn’t have the slow delivery mannerisms of Shatner but it’s totally James T. Kirk, the bravado, the self-assuredness. It’s such a great performance. You can’t take your eyes off the guy. Anytime he’s not on the screen you’re waiting for him to get back. And the chick [Zoe Saldana] who plays Uhura is really great. They made Uhura really interesting

Nothing really new, only more evidence that Uhura will have more to do than 'hailing frequencies open' as Number 4 (not in terms of rank but concerning character importance). At least that is my educated or perhaps not so educated guess about her role

More evidence, in the sense of no evidence, sure.

But seriously, for what it's worth it is always encouraging to hear more good remarks on Pine's work as Kirk (his Kirk work!), since it's one of the biggest unknowns and unknowables at this early stage.

Just imagine: Nimoy does his usual fantastic job in the character he created, Quinto knocks Young Spock out of the park, and Pine is as 'fascinating' at Kirk as Kevin relates. What a strong film that would be!

Right...I mean, for him to pick out PINE and say you can't wait for him to be back on screen...when we know there's Quinto and Nimoy....that is good....very, very good.

Maybe Pine is that good, you never know! Still encouraging as I like Smith and his work.
