Star Trek 2 set photos reveal some on set action with Spock and Uhura
J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK 2 is currently filming and now we have some set photos to further tease us. In the photos we see an altercation with Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the unnamed villain being played by Benedict Cumberbatch and then the resulting back up arrival of Uhura (Zoe Saldana) who is wielding a phaser gun.
Check 'em out:
Cumberbatch's role has been rumored to be that of Khan from the original STAR TREK sequel, WRATH OF KHAN, but it's not confirmed. Plenty of speculation can reign now that we have a look at his character, who certainly doesn't have the appearance of the Ricardo Montalban Khan. Interesting stuff.
I really enjoyed Abrams' STAR TREK and am looking forward to what he does with the sequel, lens flares and all. He's one of the most consistent filmmakers working today and seems to have a real passion for delivering a great product.
STAR TREK 2 is scheduled to arrive on May 17, 2013.
