Quinto understands the need for the secrecy after his first day of shooting. "The first day I shot the movie, before it was over, J.J. came to me with his phone and showed me a picture that he had downloaded from the Internet of us standing in the room we were still shooting in," he said. "It was already on the Internet! That's actually what instigated the heightened security. The next day I showed up and we had floor-length vinyl jackets with hoods and golf carts that were completely enclosed in black tarp."
The same day! Pretty funny.
I wonder if they ever found the person who was responsible for the leak.
