Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof apologises for including 'misogynistic' Alice Eve underwear scene
Trekkies and moviegoers around the globe have been very vocal with their criticism about one particular scene in the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie. A short scene in the blockbuster that features a semi nude Alice Eve has caused such furore that the film's producer has publicly apologised for it. Damon Lindelof used his Twitter account to say sorry for the clip which has been deemed 'misogynistic' and unnecessary by some viewers.

Has the screenwriter apologized to the actress? The director? This is beyond stupid. To appreciate the female form is to hate it at the same time. Oh, okay.
Oh get real. You see more skin on a daytime soap opera. To Hollywood, porn is “free speech” but a bit of harmless flirting is “misogynistic”.
And... has anyone told Damon Carol Marcus is the mother of Kirk's son in the original Trek timeline?
I think the scene was unnecessary, but this is the Leftist thought police enforcers. Nothing more. There is nothing misogynist about the scene. This is all about enforcing feminist dogma. And the director, no doubt a leftist himself, was all too eager to kneel before the alter of political correctness.
Oh for god sakes, they wear less in a jeans ad these days.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in JJ's office...
Feminists are upset because they don’t look like that,
and know that women who do have an advantage over them in society.
Mission accomplished. Now I just want to see the movie even more! ;-) Anyone think they may be going for a little manufactured controversy? Just sayin’... Heck, I was planning on seeing it anyway, I’m a Trekkie since the original series, so you know I was going to no matter what...
I didnt hear them complaining about any of the other almost EXPLICIT copulating scenes coming from there
Did someone break the internet?
Showing Kirk in bed with, not one but two female cat people is ok (freaky psuedo bestiality is fine with libs) but simply showing a normal female body in something that needs to be apologized for.
She’s only allowed to be that nekkid when she shows up at the Oscars to claim her award...
Star Trek chicks....
And this after all those yeomen running around in tiny little miniskirts in the original, Deanna Troi in her skintight leotards in TNG, and a scene in Star Trek Enterprise where a male and female character spent about a minute in their underwear slathering disinfectant gel all over one another in a decontamination chamber.
Not to mention, Seven of Nine.
I saw that scene in IMAX 3d....ugly scene...felt lunch coming up.....uhhh at least that’s what I told my wife who was sitting next to me. (whistling past the grave yard.....)
I remember in the first reboot of Star Trek we saw Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, and Rachel Nichols in their underwear.
Saw that scene in IMAX 3d with my son...good thing we had unlimited refills of popcorn as the bag fell off my son's lap.
Yeah, you’re probably right. And I probably fell for it.
That scene was needed of course for the plot. sarc///
That hot blonde hit the set knowing she was eye candy.
How many years into the future and underwear is still the same as today?
Oh, a beautiful, blonde woman in lingerie, oh the humanity! This is seriously one of the least offensive things coming out of Hollyweird, I find shows and movies that push the gay agenda to be way more offensive.
Gee, this “apology” sure has gotten this flick a lot of free publicity, hasn’t it.
I has thought that underwear that far into the future would be some type of personal semi transparent force screen... personally adjustable for touch, semi touch, or “don’t touch me” static shock settings! Other features might include “potty on the run” disintegration features and antiflatulence protections with noise suppression! Energize!
EXACTLY my point, anyone that disagrees is either a liar or well.. you know.....
Impressive! She is...umm.....very fit.
I would love to know Abram’s opinion on this idiocy.
I second that, ‘NOT GUILTY!’
Male homos deeply offended....
Such a pity. The original ST had women who were unreservedly beautiful, wearing, if somewhat risque, then definitely striking and unique costumes, elaborate hairstyling, and unafraid of their sexuality. They *knew* they were women, and they liked being women.
Importantly, it also included many older women, who while dressed somewhat more demurely, still projected an image of strong femininity and competence.
By the time of the movies and The Next Generation, unisex outfits, low maintenance hair, and mannequin facial expressions had taken over. While they might be intellectually able, they were emotionally deficient. And some came across as positively lame-brained.
(Enemy ship communication: “We will destroy you!”, followed by firing an array of weapons.)
Ship’s Counselor: “Captain, I sense ‘anger’ coming from that other ship!”
Captain: “No ****, Counselor?”
Truthfully, that character was so underwritten that some wit got an inflatable sex doll, dressed it up as Counselor Troi, and gave it a randomized voice player to say inanities at the touch of a button. He would ask it an obviously rhetorical question, then push its button, and it would quote random statements made by the character in the series.
The lady in question is Carol Marcus, who will one day in the future have Kirk’s son, David, who will be brutally murdered by Doc Brown...er Klingon commander Krug.
there is no gratuitous skin in star trek - being star trek, the stories require it.
Agreed. Perhaps you should have included a spoiler alert.
you see more on a non topless beach.
what a weenie...
Gee.....you would have thought Kirk was sleeping with 2 women with tails????
She wasn’t nude...Unfortunately.
Did you see it yet?
