Star Trek Into Darkness Sydney Premiere was on last night, 23 April 2003. Director J.J. Abrams, actors Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban walked on the red carpet at the Star Trek Into Darkness World Australia Premiere, meeting fans and media at Sydney George Street Event Cinemas. The red carpet was laid well before 6pm when the Star Trek Into Darkness Sydney Premiere scheduled to start. Sydney Star trek fans queued early for a premium spot to see the stars close up and possible photo opportunities and autographs. Many people passing by stopped to participate in this first world gala red carpet event for this movie.
It was a long wait… Journalists from Sydney media outlets lined up along the red carpet, getting ready to interview the star crew. Some unknown local “celebrities” walked pass the main entrance, but nobody asked any questions or took photos. Trying to a celebrity is really hard gig! Finally, at close to 7pm Karl Urban appeared at the front gate. He was wearing a midnight blue suit and a dark grey tie, looking handsome and smart. Maybe because he gave a lot of thought about the questions he was asked, Karl Urban almost always looked down when answering media questions regardless the height of the journalists but eventually I did get a few close images of him looking up.

Direct J.J. Abrams was the second to emerge. He was wearing a smart black suit, styled with a grey shirt and black, silver grey stripped tie. He looked every bit like an extremely intelligent man, listening to media’s questions attentively and appeared very friendly with fans.
Then it was Zachary Quinto. Dressed in a sharp shawl-collar Margiela suit, a blue polka dot shirt and burgundy Calvin Klein bow tie. He looked funkier and the least interested in the crowd around him. Fans screamed. Loudly. It seemed startled Zachary, even Chris Pine looked up from a few steps away.
Chris Pine is such a sweet heart. He was the last to appear on the red carpet and spending the most time with fans and media. He signed autograph and posed photos with his die hard fans, who have been standing there waiting for nearly the whole day. The most unforgettable was his smile… warm and genuine. Oh I nearly forgot to mention, he’s even more handsome in person. He was wearing a silver grey striped Ermenegildo Zegan suit with a dark blue striped tie and a pair of tan Ralph Lauren shoes.
The Star Trek Into Darkness Sydney Premiere is also the official world premiere. Why they choose Australia to be the first? Maybe Australia is a lucky country after all:).
