John Cho, Zachary Quinto, Director Justin Lin, Chris Pine and Karl Urban attend photo call for “Star Trek Beyond” in Sydney, Australia.
Is it is, or does this photo call have a vaguely unsettling tone to it?
They look like they’re all there to dump a body off the pier.Karl Urban is clearly keeping his hand in his coat pocket because he’s got a gun pointed at us. Also Captain Weird Pants and First Officer Pleated Trousers really need to rethink their lower body style choices. Those cuts don’t look good on them. John Cho is the only one who’s dressed well – and that, to us, is ENTIRELY appropriate, since it was just announced that his version of Hikaru Sulu, in honor of the original actor to play him, George Takei, will be revealed to have a husband in the new film – which is both AWESOME and sadly way behind schedule for this franchise.
More vaguely ominous posing ahead:
John Cho, Karl Urban, Director Justin Lin, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine attend the premiere of “Star Trek Beyond” in Sydney, Australia.
They’re smiling because they just got finished amicably dividing up the city’s gambling, drug and prostitution zones among themselves.
Again, the Cho is blowing the rest of these guys out of the water. Karl’s okay, but it’s a bit business-like. Chris looks stuffy and uncomfortable. He’s been working that look for a good while and it’s starting to look stale. He doesn’t look terrible, but it really doesn’t do much for him except make him look older than he is. It’s all very “Stay thirsty, my friends.”
As the only representative of the gays (so far as we know) in these shots, Zachary Quinto is failing us in a very big way. We can’t decide if he’s serving up Cagney or Lacey.
