Video: Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch battles Zachary Quinto’s Spock on Star Trek set

See the pair tussle on location in Los Angeles during filming of the sci-fi sequel

Grainy unofficial video has been leaked from the set of the Star Trek sequel in which Spock actor Zachary Quinto is shown battling the film’s villain, played by Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch.


The footage follows images that emerged at the weekend that showed the pair tussling on location in Los Angeles. Speaking on Sunday at the Academy Awards, Quinto, 34, commented of the photos:

“The cameras weren’t even rolling, so imagine what it’ll look like when we’re actually doing it,” he quipped. “That happens, I guess. We’re on incredibly big set pieces in the middle of somewhere and people sort of got wind of it.”

The as-yet untitled Star Trek sequel, directed by JJ Abrams, has a scheduled release date of May 17 2013.
