Well of course J.J. Abrams is not pleased. They have been working on STAR TREK 2 for some time now and to have photos leaked this early - even before we know the name of the movie itself - is not a good thing, creatively anyway. From a marketing point of view, I think it's a great thing to happen, as long as there are no more occurrences for awhile. There has to be some semblance of security on set!
Here's what Zoe Saldana (Uhura) had to say:
"J.J. was very upset. I have to say that. It's not going to stop people from intruding, but they are, and it's such a bummer because it only hurts them by stealing away the surprise."
...And Zachary Quinto's reaction too:
"The picture leaking did not go over so well. They’re go to great lengths to preserve security."
So today, to rub it in further, we have three more spy shots and to me they're even better. We see J.J. in action, Cumberbatch overcoming the Vulcan Nerve Pinch with a successful move of his own and more of Zoe Saldana as Uhura.
Cool seeing Quinto's stunt double too.
Here is a video of Zoe Saldana's response to the spy shots being leaked (note that the beautiful minds at MTV have blocked this from viewers outside the US):
