They did it again! Women Talk Sci Fi went to the Australian Premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness! Now they say that it is not a World Premiere but they got to see it first so they are more than happy! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri are on the Red Carpet in the Media Bay so not only did they get to see the Stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, JJ Abrams and many more walk past but did they get to interview some of them as well? Eugenia and Gerri will give you some insight in what it is like to be at a premiere with some commentary from them and they get to chat to some fans who are also hanging on the red carpet waiting to catch a glimpse of some of the stars. They also talk about the film, discussing what they liked and maybe you will hear a little on what they thought of some of the surprises from the movie “No spoilers sweetie” of course!!! In answer to the question did Eugenia and Gerri get to talk with some of the Stars and others on the red carpet well yes they did! So have a listen to Georgina Haig who was in episodes of Fringe, Penelope Austin who composed and sings the song that is in the movie, Karl Urban the wise cracking Bones, JJ Abrams Director extraordinaire and Captain Kirk himself Chris Pine! You may even find out why Eugenia was a little excited to be on the red carpet and why! Yes it could be a little corny but funny! Thanks to Paramount Australia http://www.paramountpicturesaustralia.com.au and Gabby and Rachel from Way to Blue PR http://www.waytoblue.com for giving us this great opportunity! So listen and then go out and by a ticket to watch the movie! http://www.startrekmovie.com.au . You will not regret it.
The clock is ticking until the public release of the born again Star Trek movie. So Gerri and Eugenia are madly trying to cram everything in before the big event. So you guessed it this is another Star Trek podcast. What a cool podcast it is though with none other than J.J. Abrams as the main focus of today’s podcast. It isn’t just all interviews with the rich and famous though. You get to spend a day in the life of a podcast reporter. Find out what really happens behind the scenes of the media frenzy. The core of this podcast is the J.J. Abrams interview though. He seems to be a very level headed man with a passion for good stories. It doesn’t matter if it is Star Trek or not just that the story evokes an emotional response. Some of you might cry that nothing is more important than Star Trek. I believe though that J.J Abrams has really grasped what Gene Roddenberry envisioned for Star Trek. It’s not a show for flashy special effects and cool gadgets. It’s a platform designed to tell you a story. One with meaning, filled with optimism and hope for the future. Whilst J.J. Abrams freely admits he was not a Star Trek fan when he started this project he also freely admits that the Roddenberry vision has roped him in. Star Trek will do that to anyone who wants to desperately believe that humanity will ultimately make it. In J.J. Abrams one words that very optimism that has made Trekkie’s so uncool is set for a reversal. Optimism and hop is the new black. It’s not all about J.J Abrams though. There is also a red carpet interview with producer Bryan Burke. Over all this is a great podcast especially for those interested in the people who work behind the cameras.
