J.J. Abrams has shared a few more tidbits concerning forthcoming sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, singling Benedict Cumberbatch out for particular praise, without giving anything more away about his character.
“I just can’t wait for people to see the movie,” says Abrams. “Benedict is unbelievable. It’s a tall order, coming into that movie, because the crew of the Enterprise – that cast – is so damn good and they’re wonderful to work with and they’re all good hearts.”
“So, to come into that group, as he did, as Alice Eve did and as Peter Weller did, and be one of the family was something that I was doubtful could happen. And he completely did it. I not only love him in the movie, but I love him, as a human being. He’s an amazing guy. I can’t wait for people to see the movie and experience what he’s done.”
Praise indeed. So what else can audiences expect from Abrams’ second bite of the cherry? Well from the sounds of things, the answer to that is scale.
“It’s a far bigger movie,” says Abrams. “What I’m still grappling with and learning how to do is to be looking and thinking cinematically, having come from television. A lot of that is about keeping all that stuff in frame and understanding composition.”
“There were things I wish I had done on the first movie, that I got a chance to do this time. There were shots I wished I’d gotten, that I never got a chance to get, so it was fun to get that chance this time. But, there are no gimmicky things that I’m aware of, that I’m imposing or forcing down an audience’s throat.”

Here we go! After I told Cumberbatch that I was ridiculously tiny, he laughed and scooted down, resulting in this wonderfully silly face as he is amused at my height.

Please don’t crop me out, he had to crouch pretty low to be my height :P
This one wins the ‘best photo of the day’ award :D
I’ve just arrived home and I’m not entirely…. coherent, shall we say. Today has been a lot to take in! Chess-ka (my very patient ‘enabler’), Mxdp (the wonderful Lemons and Landmarks cover artist) and I were on the guest list, meaning we got some rather exciting ‘production guest’ stickers and didn’t have to queue to get in. We also had reserved seats, which were handy given the task ahead.
I’ve already seen some wonderful posts about the recordings, so I won’t speak about those here (though I’ll probably do a post about them tomorrow if I feel I can add anything to the discussion). For now, I’ll skip forward to David Tyler’s frequent allusions to ‘the other thing’ that would follow the retakes. Finnemore looked intrigued- what other thing? He was about to find out.
I won’t write too much about what was said to the audience, either by me or by David Tyler and John Finnemore because you’ll be able to see these things for yourselves very soon (we were allowed to record, and several people did). I can, however, provide the details which were not captured on camera, starting with the eminently flattering moment when, during Tyler’s introduction, Roger Allam (the only member of the cast who knew what was going on) leant over to utter words to the effect of ‘this is amazing’ before making eye contact with me in the audience. Anyone who knows anything about me at all will know how much of an Allam devotee I am, and his approval meant the world to me.
Knowing what was about to happen, my heart was fluttering like a doormouse’s. I’m generally surprised that both my voice and my person appear steady in the video I’ve seen, because I was vibrating. Mr Finnemore hugged me first, and I was surprised to see how bright his eyes were with emotion; I may have been the one getting the applause on stage, but it really was for all of you who took part. You did this, and John Finnemore was visibly moved by all of your efforts, so thank you so very much.
When I came to deliver the CDs and cards to the other cast members, Roger Allam (who was quite teary himself!) came to help me. He gave me a hug and a kiss (I could have died) and I must say he smells delightful (these are the kinds of things I pick up on). I then gave Stephanie Cole her card and present and she gave me a big hug and some very lovely words (she gives wonderful hugs), and Cumberbatch decided to join in. He called me amazing (pfft) and hugged and kissed me (sorry…). He was a bit… moist, shall we say, having sweated a lot during the recording, and he was also somewhat of an octopus- all limb and no co-ordination between us so that for one brief and awkward moment my face was buried in his neck (oops). For anyone wondering, he smelt rather nice too. Quite festive. I then gave a card to ‘another cast member’ (not saying who… spoilers).
So, there’s a brief run-down. Feel free to ask any questions. Mr Finnemore (and his mum) spoke to me at length afterwards and he’s deciding on which charity the money raised will be going to- I’ll let you know what he decides. Videos will be posted soon, as will further accounts of what happened before (and after) along with details of how to get hold of Lemons and Landmarks books / CDs / pdfs, with the proceeds going to the aforementioned mystery charity. I just need a little time to come down from my cloud. Thank you all so, so much. This would never have happened without you. You’re all brilliant!

JJ Abrams has spoken about casting Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek Into Darkness.
The helmer was effusive about Cumberbatch’s performance in the sequel, revealing that he wanted to cast him immediately after watching his performance in Sherlock.
“One day, Damon Lindelof texted me and said, ‘You should check out Sherlock’. And I watched Sherlock, and was completely blown away, there was this absolute undeniable feeling about it.
“Certainly it was important to hear the words come out of this actor’s mouth, and so we got Benedict the pages and he sent an iPhone-taped audition to us, but it was almost a little bit of a formality.”
Abrams went on to suggest that Cumberbatch’s presence had raised the standard of performances across the board.
“Being on the set with him… I think everyone was bringing their absolute A-game. I think, frankly, in a way, [his] presence sort of elevated everything,” he added.
“Time and again, every scene, Benedict brought a surprising, unexpected, grounded, real and often terrifying aspect to the role. So we are incredibly grateful, all of us.
I love reading comments like this.
OH MAN, I am forever happy ahah.
He was really so nice AHHH, gosh I’m so awkward—AND HE’S SO HANDSOME
Oh lucky you, he looks gorgeous :)
Benedict, your mouth is smiling but your eyes are tired.
It’s overwhelming just to LOOK at this photo’s, i can’t imagine what it must have been like for Benedict. Bet that woke him up!!
No seriously, these photos are great. But… My eyes are going crazy looking at that shirt. I like his coat?
