But even more eye catching than the film’s good-looking cast were the space-age props set against a historic London backdrop.

The carpet quickly filled with cast members Chris Pine, Alice Eve, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Zoe Saldana, who plays Nyota Uhura, commanded the photographers' attention.

As did Alice Eve, who plays Dr. Carol Marcus in the film.

Writer/producer Damon Lindelof's interview was broadcast from a large screen above.

Once inside the theatre, guests sipped on champagne waiting for the screening to start.

Eventually, Zoe Saldana strutted her way down the theatre aisles.

And Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the film, high-fived fans.

J.J. Abrams nearly had to rip the mic away from actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays John Harrison, to introduce the film.
