Galway Film Fleadh: from Zachary Quinto and Saoirse Ronin to Aiden Gillen

You don’t hear the phrase “under the blazing Irish sun” very often, but that’s where the 25th annual Galway Film Fleadh is unfolding, in a city where it often rains and currently shines. Actually, it’s hot as hell, but the people and films are cool. Zach Quinto, who arrived yesterday (a little late for the “Star Trek” presentation but in time for an acting masterclass and screening of “Margin Call,” which he helped produce) almost immediately made a stop at a café here where he used to work.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Preview Report: Producer Bryan Burk Talks Promo Tour, Franchise Future

Friday in London, Paramount Pictures screened an extended look at "Star Trek Into Darkness" at the BFI IMAX cinema, introduced by producer Bryan Burk and including the opening 28 minutes of the film plus two other extended sequences. What they showed of J.J. Abrams’ belated sequel, which arrives four years after he rebooted the franchise with 2009’s "Star Trek," was thrilling stuff, even if you don’t count yourself a colossal (or even casual) Trekkie. That, as Burk explained in his intro to the footage, has always been their primary goal with this sequel: to make a film that appeals across the board.
