With the exception of some high class and very well paid madams, there is simply nobody in Hollywood that keeps a secret quite like JJ Abrams. Just like all his other projects, the sequel to his Star Trek reboot has been kept under wraps tighter than most Egyptian pharaohs.
So it comes with some surprise that MTV has managed to score these onset pics, giving us our first real glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch’s unnamed villain battling it out with Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana) on what appears to be a space barge.
The first image shows us exactly why you don’t find many successful pointy-eared alien masseuses. Spock seems to be employing the classic Vulcan grip on Cumberbatch, who certainly does not seem happy about it. And what is that black uniform that Cumberbatch is wearing? Could that be a Starfleet Academy uniform?
The second image shows Uhura “using a phaser to save Spock from Cumberbatch’s villain” according to MTV. So not so successful with the Vulcan grip then Spock, ol’ boy?
