Joseph Gatt talks Banshee, Star trek Into Darkness and Thor

Thanks to Philomina for the heads up.

1. You play the cybernetic-humanoid Enterprise Starfleet Bridge Crew Member 'Science Officer 0718' in the new "Star Trek Into Darkness". What can we expect from this character?

0718 is one of the new officer additions to the primary Enterprise bridge crew. I'm an augmented human, in a way that increases my intelligence & reduces my emotions, sort of like an artificial Vulcan. My main job is to work closely with the science & engineering systems in a role that shadows Spock's position.

2. J.J. Abrams said in an interview with his reboot of the "Star Trek" franchise he wanted to bring optimism back to science fiction movies. Would you say this is also the premise in "Into Darkness"?

I totally agree with J.J., and he's definitely succeeded with "Into Darkness". Speaking for myself and a lot of people I know, we are totally bored with dark, depressing movies which end in misery and death leaving no hope for the hero or mankind. In these movies the earth is a dark, bleak, and depressing place full of very bad people who never look beyond the ends of their selfish noses and kill and hate indiscriminately. With "Into Darkness", J.J. has returned to what made "Star Trek", the original series, so compelling in the first place. It's about hope, exploration, trying to do the right thing for friendship, love, and ultimately humanity. There are many strong political and humanitarian morals to this movie, and after 132 minutes of tears, laughter, tension, and surprise, you leave the theater with a sense of happiness and pride in humanity and our future. That is very rare for a modern movie or TV show.

3. Abrams also said you don't need to be a "Star Trek" fan to enjoy this movie. Would you agree and what does this mean for the movie in terms of is it more action/drama, less "technobabble" or something like that?

This is a movie that a total "Star Trek" first timer will love, as well as a hardened Trekkie! There are so many moments that relate and pay homage directly to previous movies, and especially the original series, that only Trekkies and fans will understand and appreciate, but you don't need to understand their origination to still feel the humor, tension, sadness etc. It's a very well-crafted script.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
