In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the Star Trek sequel that took twice as long as expected, and the British comedy drama shot in under two weeks.

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) was actually confirmed as being in development before 2009’s Star Trek reboot hit the screen. And the decision to withhold a spoiler proved divisive.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
