Zachary Quinto was present at the recently held Tribeca Film Festival and he dished about a very interesting facet of the Star Trek movies, the differences between J.J. Abrams, who directed the last two films, and Justin Lin, who has directed Star Trek Beyond.
Entertainment Weekly reported from the event and got Quinto's, who plays Commander Spock in Star Trek Beyond, comments on the matter. "I think Justin brought his own vision to the story, for sure," he said. "I don't think he was trying to do it like J.J., which is great. And they're very different people, they're very different directors."
Quinto went on to elaborate on their distinct styles: "Both are enormously talented. J.J's much more extrovert. Justin's much more, sort of visually knows where he's going with things and kind of keeps his distance a little bit, and I think he also came into a fully formed ensemble of people who've worked together and done some movies together. I loved working with him. He's very respectful but very sure."
Star Trek Beyond is the third entry in the rebooted sci-fi franchise, which already includes Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into the Darkness (2013). The first two were helmed by J.J. Abrams, who's now busy heading up the Star Wars sequels, so this one is directed by Fast & Furious reviver Justin Lin with the familiar crew of Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) all set to return.
Star Trek Beyond will open in theaters on July 22, 2016.
