Kevin Smith Hasn’t Seen JJ Abram’s “Star Trek”, But If He Did He Really Liked It
In one of those cases where you’re prevented from disclosing certain details about a certain thing you’ve only got so many options to leak info. Kevin Smith is in that situation after having definitely not just watched JJ Abram’s reboot for “Star Trek”. And by “definitely not” I mean “definitely did”.
TrekMovie landed the denial interview with Smith:
Smith: I saw a movie last night that I cannot talk about.
Host: Was it good?
Smith: It was phenomenal.
Host: Any stars, any break out stars, and do they trek?
Smith: The stars absolutely trek in this film. It is fantastic. Anybody who was worried doesn’t need to be worried–about this film I cannot talk about…It was in very capable hands. The director did a phenomenal job–the director and his crew. Top notch cast and the guy that plays the lead is an instant star. That dude is going to be so famous. He is so wonderful. He picked up a role that I would say is pretty challenging for someone to step into the shoes of, because it is a role that has been played before many times by the same guy.
Host: How do you out Shatner, Shatner?
Smith: I don’t what you are talking about.
That definitely makes me feel better about the franchise relaunch, especially with the new Kirk. After getting burned by Abrams’ last hype, “Cloverfield”, I’m still a bit cautious.Facebook, Twitter, & Email
