First Trek film footage unveiled

Filed under
Movies

Lost creator JJ Abrams has unveiled footage from his Star Trek prequel at a press event in London. The clips featured US actor Chris Pine as the young Captain Kirk, Heroes star Zachary Quinto as Mr Spock and Simon Pegg as Enterprise engineer Scotty.

The audience also saw Leonard Nimoy reprise his role as the older Mr Spock in one of four excerpts from the film.

In his introduction, Abrams said he wanted the film, to be released in May 2009, to feel "legitimate and real".

Speaking at London's Vue West End cinema on Tuesday morning, the film-maker admitted he had "never really been a huge Star Trek fan".

The preview began with a screening of the latest trailer, which showed scenes of Kirk and Spock as children and Eric Bana as Romulan villain Nero.

Abrams then introduced the first excerpt, in which "farm boy" Kirk gets into a bar brawl with four Starfleet officers.
