One thing I have always enjoyed in these nu-Trek movies is the way Pine takes the classic Shatnerisms and makes them his own. In a new set video from Screencrush, we get to see him do the hand gestures, and Simon Pegg goof off a lot between takes.
There’s also a white-skinned alien played by Sofia Boutella that I bet Kirk puts the moves on. Because if he doesn’t, I call shenanigans.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
