[Movies] J.J. Abrams Says He Regrets Keeping Plot Twist in Star Trek Into Darkness Secret
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.02.2013



As you may recall, in the lead-up to this year's Star Trek Into Darkness all cast and crew involved with the show were very adamant that Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrasion was not Khan, when in fact he was. Now, J.J. Abrams tells MTV News that he regrets keeping that one quiet.

"The truth is I think it probably would have been smarter just to say upfront, 'This is who it is,'" Abrams said. "It was only trying to preserve the fun of it, and it might have given people more time to acclimate and accept that's what the thing was. But the truth is because it was so important to the studio that we not angle this thing for existing fans, it felt like if we said it was Khan, it would feel like you've really got to know what Star Trek is about to see this movie. And that would have been limiting. So I can understand their argument to try to keep that quiet, but I do wonder if it would have seemed a little bit less like an attempt at deception or something if we had just come out with it."

The secret didn't hurt the box office of course; Star Trek Into Darkness made over $467 million worldwide on a $195 million budget.
