Paramount have released eleven new images from JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, and thanks to Collider, we can share them right here with you. Some of the images have already been seen, but it is nice to have them all together in one place.
The new images feature shots of the crew of The Enterprise in some rather tricky situations, and mostly under threat of gunfire, indicating that things will indeed go horribly wrong for them in the new film. We also get another look at Spock (Zachary Quinto) in that volcano, plus another shot of him in about to take out an unseen enemy. Kirk (Chris Pine), also looks ready for anything in the new images, while the sexy Nyota Uhura (Zoe Saldana) is seen hiding from gunfire and we also get a shot of a rather worried looking Scotty (Simon Pegg). Also included are a few images of Benedict Cumberbatch as the mystery villain.
Also included here is an update on a recent, heartwarming story of an unfortunate man and a wonderful gesture of goodwill from Abrams. Known only as Daniel, the man is suffering from terminal cancer, and Abrams responded to a letter, and offered Daniel the chance of a private screening of the new Star Trek film. This was one of Daniel’s dying wishes, and Abrams in a wonderful act of kindness, granted that wish. Daniel’s wife provided an update on what happened through Yahoo:
Hi everyone, it’s Daniel’s wife, we are of course sworn to secrecy, BUT we are officially allowed to say we saw it and we enjoyed it IMMENSELY as a film and as a gesture…However; Daniel ‘hates’ being an ‘inspiring cancer story’ we his friends and loved ones would prefer for the update to have more of a heartfelt message of giving, especially during this season:
This is a story of us giving something to him, the ‘internet’ community giving something to him and ultimately being a heartwarming gift to our friends, family and so many others. This story of us (and of course JJ Abrams & Bad Robot) being able to give this surprise gift of a screening to a huge movie buff like Daniel, especially a film made by a film maker who obviously makes movies with such care, with a fan like Daniel in mind (and a person like me who knows slightly less about these things). Also, it was truly amazing that a film-maker so secretive as JJ Abrams was kind enough to show this to us.
It is also so wonderful for his friends & his family to finally hear some good news from us, They know how important film is to Daniel & could not think of a better way to please to him. So this gesture really has brought a lot of smiles all around.
It was a wonderful thing to see with Daniel and a wonderful thing to see Daniel enjoy – Making someone as ill as he is smile for any length of time really makes a difference. (At this point making me smile is good too)
This is also so poignant as JJ Abrams took so much care in the first Star Trekmovie to at least TRY to get everything ‘right’ for the fans and we were so touched when he was concerned that we wouldn’t 100% enjoy the screening as it’s still being worked on…….Be assured we enjoyed it 110%! We are so grateful thank you, thank you, thank you…..
