Well if there is anything to support that statement its the previous movie. Its hard not to trust the man that has created that “over the top lens flares apple store crappy story peace of shit”. Here is an excerpt of the interview that MTV concluded with the Mission Impossible 3 director:
“The goal of this movie is to make you cry. If the movie does its job, then by the end of the movie, you will have had a reaction involving the eyes,” Abrams promised with a laugh. “If the movie works, then there’s definitely an emotional component.”
“The definition of who these two people are definitely comes to bear in this film. It’s central to what happens in the story,” said Chris Pine. “Spock is a logical man of cold reason who is run by laws, regulations and prescriptions. Kirk is a guttural, by-the-heart, instinctive and impulsive guy. Those two ways of looking at the world are central to these characters and their journey.”
“There is an insidiousness and ruthlessness and fierce intelligence to [John Harrison] that almost undermines the interconnectivity of the crew,” Zaquary Quinto teased. “The stakes are much higher.”
Quinto insists that “there’s reason to worry” about fans’ favorite characters.
