- J.J. Abrams – if you’re not already familiar with the director of Star Trek Into Darkness, he was also one of the creators of Felicity, Lost, Alias, Fringe, and Undercovers. In addition, he directed Mission: Impossible III, Super 8, and will be taking on the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII. I have some serious sci-fi nerd love for this man – juggling Star Trek and Star Wars at the same time?! He’s a cinema super hero in his own right, I tell you.
- Mix the action adventure of Star Wars plus the liberal optimism of Star Trek equals the new and improved Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness.
- Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are the Turner and Hooch of Sci-Fi film (sorry guys, I couldn’t come up with a better analogy). Chris Pine is a romantic and action lead of Unstoppable, Smokin’ Aces, and This Means War fame. Zachary Quinto is an edgy television villain from Heroes and American Horror Story.
- Benedict Cumberbatch, two words: English accent – swoon!
- Action, action, action! A whole bunch of sci-fi, space crusader, alien loving, Star Trek action!!!
