Kirk vs. Kirk — Great Still from William Shatner’s THE CAPTAINS
Next month, on July 22, 2011, EPIX will debut a documentary on the captains of the Star Trek universe by the original Kirk himself, William Shatner. It’s called The Captains, and the above image of reboot Kirk (Chris Pine) arm-wrestling Shatner is taken from that doc. Says Shatner in The Sudbury Star about this image:
“He’s shy,” Shatner says of the 30-year-old actor who took over the role of James T. Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek prequel/reboot. “So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.”
And here, if you haven’t seen it, is the trailer for The Captains:
Looks promising to us. Howzaboutyou?
