I, for one, am going to love seeing Bernd's head exploding over the next month.
THE NEW SHIPS ARE NO BIGGER THAN THE OLD ONES. THAT SHOT WHERE THE VENGEANCE'S ENGINEERING HULL WAS THE SIZE OF ALCATRAZ ISLAND WAS A MISTAKE. ALL THE SETS ARE MISTAKES. ALL THE CG ARE VFX ERRORS. THAT CARGO HOLD SCOTTY RAN ACROSS WAS REALLY THE SIZE OF A BROOM CLOSET.
I imagined him saying all that while going like this

That's perfect!

Well, you mentioned the bay of the Vengeance, where youve got the challenge of running across this place that really does feel like its the inside of an airplane hangar. When you go in there, whats your reaction when you see the space youre gonna have to jog across so many times?

Yeah, it was immense. Its always very important to J.J. that we are surrounded by physicality, that were never really relying on too much green screen. Certainly from my experience in the film, there was very little green screen work done. We always had some kind of physical prop around us and we were always in touch with some solid object, you know, and that set that was down at hangar in West LA, which is essentially a gigantic warehouse that people use if a sound studio is not big enough. That was all there and when it was lit up, when the kind of emergency lights were flashing. It was insane. It was 100 meters long, it was like half a mile. It was ridiculous. I ran it three times, sprinted it as fast as I possibly could, and it was extraordinarily fun.
Q
Fun and not completely exhausting?

Pegg
Oh, I threw up after the third one because Id only just had my dinner. We were doing a night shoot and I kind of...

J.J. has this thing where he makes you want to do your very best all of the time. He never demands it of you. He never kind of like plays any game in asking for it. He never even physically asks you to do it, but you always want to do your best for J.J., because its J,J,. So, I ran faster than Ive run since I was a kid and broke the land speed record. All of the crew applauded and I felt really good about myself, because, you know, Im the oldest of the crew members and then J.J. said, That was great, Simon. Would you do it again, and I was like, Yeah, yeah, just give me one minute. Then I kind of got my breath back and I did it again and then I did it again and then I had excuse myself and go throw up.
Thanks! I loved Scotty's run through the hangar.
