Smith And Grunberg On 'Star Trek XI'

Those who have seen or may be in Star Trek XI, including Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg (Heroes) are excited about the film and pleased with the portrayals by the actors.

As reported by collider.com, when Smith, (Zack and Miri Make a Porno) was offered a chance to see a rough version of Star Trek XI, he leapt at the chance. "I remember, we were at San Diego Comic-Con and that's where I met Zack Snyder for the first time," said Smith. "He invited me. He was like, you gotta come over and watch the movie. And I was like, Oh, I gotta! You can't keep me out of that screening room. He was like, It ain't finished. I was like, Dude, I don't care. The fanboy in me needs me to see it. I've been around the block long enough to fill in the blanks in terms of what's missing. Or this is a wire-frame FX shot that's going to be a very smoothed out, flesh FX shot when it's done."

Smith had praise for the actors, especially Chris Pine (Kirk) and Simon Pegg (Scotty). "Chris Pine, who plays Captain Kirk in the movie, does not do a William Shatner impression, but, at the same time, he's unmistakably Captain Kirk. He just brings all the brio, the gusto, everything about Kirk except Shatner's deliver to bear on the character. It doesn't disavow anything that's gone before. It lives side by side with everything that's gone before in Star Trek lore, in the movies, and the TV show. He did a great, great job." As for Pegg, "Simon Pegg was good. I don't want to spoil too much because they made me sign an NDA as well. But he's not right front and center right away. He comes into the movie later...Scotty's the last one they bring in. But he’s pitch perfect."

Meanwhile, Heroes' Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman), who may or may not be in the movie, had this to say about Star Trek XI in an interview with IESB.net. ""I can't talk about it. You're going to have to see the movie to find out." He also wouldn't answer the question as to whether he had played the role of a redshirt or whether he had seen the movie, but said, "I can't even talk about it. I'm very excited. The movie is going to be unbelievable."

And ten shots of an "icy" Star Trek XI set have appeared on On Location News. Several feature Chris Pine in the "snow,", and one has a cutout of what appears to be a creature from the ice world. The photos can be seen here.

So I'm guessing we won't see Pine (Scotty) until we get to the Enterprise. Good, that means they aren't doing the contrived 'they all knew eachother since the academy' thing.

"I remember, we were at San Diego Comic-Con and that's where I met Zack Snyder for the first time," said Smith. "He invited me. He was like, you gotta come over and watch the movie. And I was like, Oh, I gotta! You can't keep me out of that screening room. He was like, It ain't finished. I was like, Dude, I don't care. The fanboy in me needs me to see it. ..."
Like, radical dude!

Zack Snyder? Either Snyder got to see STXI and asked Smith along or Smith is talking about Watchmen as well as STXI....

Ice creature? JJ wasn't kidding when he said he wanted to bring more Star Wars into Trek!

This looks like the Dodger Stadium location we saw in aerial photos.

Did any of you see Kevin Smith on the Tonight Show last Friday? My god, that man has gotten huge. Jay Leno even told him he was concerned about him. Then most of his chat was about how he's so fat he broke a public toilet. I felt bad for him. It must suck when your appearance is so shocking that the talk show host wants to discuss it when you're there to promote a movie.

Pegg's playing Scotty, not Pine, but I agree with the sentiment.

They might have had a problem talking about the movie on the show. It's been getting a lot of problems from censors...

So we still don't know if Grunberg is really in this or not?

Or more TOS back into Star Trek. Been ages since we've seen any "man-eating" space monsters like a Mugato or the M-113 Salt Vampite creature...

I think it's a safe bet he's in it. He's in all of JJ's stuff.
