Eric Bana treks to London to launch new Enterprise adventure

21 APRIL 2009
Aussie star Eric Bana joined the cast of the new Star Trek film in London this week to present the latest instalment of the sci-fi movie series. Hundreds of fans, many wearing pointy Vulcan ears and Starship Enterprise crew costumes, had lined the special blue carpet to catch a glimpse of the actors as they arrived.

Especially excited to be unveiling the new flick in the British capital's cinema hub Leicester Square was British funnyman Simon Pegg. The Gloucestershire-born actor - who donned a kilt in honour of his Scottish character, Montgomery Scott - described the launch as "a geek dream come true".

Simon's co-stars at the bash included Chris Pine - the flick's Captain James T Kirk - and Heroes star Zachary Quinto, who plays Mr Spock, and Australian Lord Of The Rings actor Karl Urban.

Adding a touch of glamour to the lineup was Six Degrees actress Zoe Saldana elegant in a silver hued-prom style dress.

The New Jersey-born actress is tipped for big things after landing the part of Captain Nyota Uhura in the new film. Director JJ Abrams has a habit of sending his leading ladies' careers into orbit - Keri Russell, Evangeline Lilly and Jennifer Garner all raised their profiles by starring in his projects.

British stars turning up to see the new sci-fi adventure included Strictly winner Tom Chambers and Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson. And TV and radio presenter Jonathan Ross was there with his children Honey Hinny and Harvey Kirby.
