There is no denying that Star Trek Into Darkness is already a huge hit, having taken the number one spot at the US box office at the weekend, dislodging Iron Man 3 along the way. Unfortunately though, the movie does have its faults and some fans have complained about certain aspects of the movie.
One such complaint is the need to actually have Alice Eve strip to her underwear on-screen, while she changes into her special torpedo disarming suit. Now, writer and producer on Star Trek Into Darkness, Damon Lindelof, has admitted that it was an error of judgement on his part and he has apologised for the scene.
In a series of tweets on his official Twitter account, Lindelof said, "I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress. We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies. Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic (sic). What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future." He then went on to joke "Also, I need to learn how to spell 'misogynistic."
Star Trek Into Darkness managed to gross a highly impressive $70.2m on its opening weekend at the US box office. That figure takes its worldwide gross to $115m. With the guaranteed success of the movie, Star Trek 3 is already in the works but, the question is, who will direct the Star Trek sequel?
