Zachary Quinto is at ease as he waits for Star Trek into Darkness to release.
Trek fans may be nervous though, as Quinto promises that the sequel will be “darker, bigger,” with “more at stake for everyone.” Expect “more action, more peril and there’s more at stake.”
Quinto has “never felt any pressure” from being part of the Star Trek franchise. “I only felt supported,’ he said, “…and I have only felt like my job is to get to work and be a part of something that people want to watch and want to see. That certainly was the case the first time around and I think it will be more the case this time.”
Star Trek into Darkness is a “bigger experience,” said Quinto. “We shot this movie in 3D and IMAX and I think the story just lends itself to much more of an explosion onto the summer movie schedule scene. I am just really excited to get it out there and share it with people and I don’t feel any particular individual pressure to doing anything other than my job and my job is already done. I shot it in the first half of 2012, so I’ve been done for awhile and now the responsibility is in everybody else’s hands to bring it all to life. J.J. [Abrams] is just a genius and everybody who works around him is incredibly talented at what they do, so I feel like people won’t be disappointed; that is certainly my hope.”
