Re: (Possible Spolier) Clip#3 'I Allow It': Kirk and Harrison.

Both actors do a great job in this clip. The reason why Cumberbath's performance is dominating Pine's is because that's exactly what the scene needs. Harrison is calm, collected and utterly cold, while Kirk is steely-eyed and boiling just below the surface.
I agree. It is really well done, with the contrast showing between them very clearly.

I wouldn't at all use this scene as some kind of yardstick for acting ability (as some folks are), because this is just a minute of footage.

For example, in the last trailer, Kirk turning to the bridge crew and saying, "I'm sorry" in an almost defeated and guilty tone is really nicely done and really for that moment.
