Fistfights are nothing new to Captain James Tiberius Kirk, although during the filming of his most recent outing, “Star Trek Beyond,” things hit a little too close to home — pun intended, sorry.
“Beyond” held its world premiere during last week’s Comic-Con International: San Diego, and Idris Elba, who plays new antagonist Krall, recounted a fight sequence opposite Chris Pine’s Kirk that got a little too heated on set, according to PEOPLE.
“Chris Pine and I actually got a little too physical and he ended up with a black eye,” Elba said, adding that the shiner actually made it into the final cut of the film.
Pine took it in good stride, apparently, and even went so far as to thank the man playing the film’s villainous Krall, according to Elba.
“It was great. He gave me a black eye, and that was fun, and we used that,” said Pine. “He’s a big guy and we tussled and threw some fake punches. All in a day’s work!”
To find out just how badly Captain Kirk took a beating, fans can check out “Star Trek Beyond” in theaters now. The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, and Simon Pegg, and is directed by Justin Lin (“Fast and Furious”).
