EQUAL OPPORTUNITY: One of the controversies about Star Trek Into Darkness is a brief scene showing Alice Eve in her underwear, and whether it's exploitative. In the film itself, I didn't have much of a problem with it (though it's more than a bit gratuitous), but the fact that the shot appeared in basically every trailer and TV spot. J.J. Abrams was on Conan this week to talk about it, and credit to him, he admits that the scene didn't work the way he'd hoped (more as a Kirk character beat than about Ms. Eve's physique) and show a brief deleted scene in which a shirtless Benedict Cumberbatch takes a shower.
