Star Trek Into Darkness may have held premieres so far in Germany, Moscow and Sydney, where James T. Kirk himself Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana who plays Uhura have said lots of positive things about making the film, but at the world premiere in London, it was time to admit what they didn't like. SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Chris Pine, saying: "We have a 5 minute sequence where I wear a wetsuit which was the thing that I wasn't necessarily the thing I wasn't the most excited about wearing. I soldiered through and had a compatriot in Karl Urban which was nice but it was fun, it was a good time." SOUNDBITE (English) Actress, Zoe Saldana, saying: "We had to put tonnes of baby powder in it in order for us to put it on and that was exhausting and by the time you got to zip the clothes, you needed to go to the bathroom. It was exhausting." Star Trek Into Darkness sees the crew of the Starship Enterprise go up against one man killing machine John Harrison played by Benedict Cumberbatch, who recently topped a poll to become the UK's sexiest man. SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, saying: "I think 'why didn't this happen to me when I was 17?' I think there's good reason. I think it's to do with stuff I'm doing as an actor rather than what I actually look like so I'm flattered on that part, I suppose." J.J. Abrams is jumping ship from the Star Trek franchise to make the next Star Wars film. SOUNDBITE (English) Director, J.J. Abrams, saying: "Honestly it's very early days on that. It's so early that I feel like I look forward to talking to you when the time is right but right now I'm focussing on getting Star Trek Into Darkness out and looking forward to talking about Star Wars later." One person who hasn't talked to J.J. about Star Wars is Chris Pine. SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Chris Pine, saying: "No, of course, I'm not sucking up to him to get a role in Star Wars. I think I'll deal with one Star and take it from there and leave a whole new group to tackle that one." Star Trek Into Darkness goes on global release from May 9th.
