The sky was blue, the carpet was white and London was the centre of the Universe. We have been avoiding the internet, keen not to give too much away about the film. But here is a roundup of our experience.
Wednesday 1st May:
Our first task for the away mission in a trip to Sky News HQ where we talk about our expectation about the film. Bit cringeworthy now we have seen the film. But other than the preview, we knew nothing about what to expect. You can find the interview on the Sky News App, downloadable from iTunes
After a night filled with dreams of explosions, miniskirts and lens flares we arrive back in London this morning for the Press Conference. You couldn’t pick a better location, set against the backdrop of London, the very scene used in the movies posters (in our minds we see 23rd Century architecture too).
Today is the the world premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness in London and to celebrate that and its release on 9 May, we have teamed up with Paramount Pictures to bring you a fabulous set of Limited Edition free goodies.
Simply visit the promotional link and choose your gifts whilst stocks last. All the gifts are free – all you pay is the postage and packing fee to ship the items. But be quick, this offer is advertised in national papers this weekend (they have slightly more readers than our blog!)

We’re heading Into Darkness aka London. Although its sunny for the first time ever! We are very privileged to have been invited to an advanced showing of Star Trek Into Darkness, so whilst sat on the train we discuss what we think might happen in this film. Our speculation is purely that. We have no idea what will happen in this film. Read at your own discretion 🙂
- John Harrison will die (and Carole will cry!)
- Johns Harrison’s death will be the premise for the next film
- Leonard Nimoy will make a suprise appearance
- Best quote will go to Spock
- Scotty will score funniest moment
- Someone’s life (probably Spock) will be left in peril
- Amongst devastation, a pregnancy is revealed (But will it be Marcus or Uhura?)
- We will cry at the end of this movie. (We got teary in the preview!)
Wednesday 1st afternoon/evening – Press Screening
Thursday 2nd – 10 am Press conference with all cast, JJ Abrams, Orci and Kurtzman, Lindelof and Burk
Thursday 2nd – 5pm London Premiere, Empire Leicester Square – we will be dressed up in our Starfleet finest attire with our Trekkies In Training, we do hope you’ll join us and give the cast and crew a big 23rd Century welcome.
Whenever we see a tweet declaring a ‘new’ trailer we have to do a little bit of studying to ascertain if it is new and different from the last one we saw. Not that we’re complaining but we reckon if you shuffle all scenes from all trailers you can piece together the whole film now!

Just like how touching the Pheonix made it more real for Picard. Being able to purchase tickets to Star Trek Into Darkness makes it ohhh so real.
Tickets are now on sale for the following UK Cinemas:
Odeon IMAX 3D
So a thorough coverage and selection to choose from. These can be purchased through the official Paramount Star Trek Into Darkness site here. Not all locations showtimes seem to be available yet. But for our local cinema (Portsmouth) it allowed us to click through to Vue's website and purchase tickets. Can't help but notice the Wednesday 8th May 00.05 screening hailing us!
