‘Star Trek 2′ Fight Scene — BTS Clip

Splash News got this Behind the Scenes footage of Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) against SHERLOCK’s Benedict Cumberbatch in a fight sequence for Paramount’s STAR TREK sequel.

Director JJ Abrams was on hand guidng the actors through their movements, and though a stuntman for Quinto was on set, it looked as if the actor was doing the bulk of the work.
Probably any shot with the character being knocked down was doubled, as insurance companies are naturally disinclined to allow stars to take actual falls.
