Into Darkness
Scene That Aged
So Poorly Damon
Lindelof Had To
Apologize
By DAMON RIVERA
“Star Trek Into Darkness,” directed by J.J. Abrams, holds its own as the highest-grossing "Star Trek" motion picture and is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. There are numerous reasons to get excited about the film, but there are also a few that make people a bit uneasy, including a scene that caused the writer, Damon Lindelof, to issue an apology to fans.
Science Officer Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) took part in a scene that helped the film earn its PG-13 rating, which may or may not have been totally necessary. At one point in the scene, Marcus is changing, and Kirk turns around to see her in a state of undress, giving the audience a full view of the beautiful actress in nothing but her undergarments.
Writer Damon Lindelof admitted the ordeal was handled poorly, while actress Eve is proud of her work in the scene. Whether it elicits feelings of pride or remorse, there is no question that the Carol Marcus "Into Darkness" tease is a good candidate for another notable moment in "Star Trek" history that stunned audiences.
