J.J. Abrams was ''very upset'' after images from the 'Star Trek 2' set were leaked online.

The director is currently working on the sequel of the sci-fi movie and while the two photos - show Zachary Quinto and then Zoe Saldana facing off against Benedict Cumberbatch, the film's new villain - the notoriously-secretive Abrams was not happy.

Zoe told MTV News: ''J.J. was very upset. I have to say that. It's not going to stop people from intruding, but they are, and it's such a bummer because it only hurts them by stealing away the surprise.''

Zachary also spoke out about the images and said they are not representative of what actually happens in the movie.

He said: ''That was not an actual scene that will be featured. The cameras weren't even rolling so...imagine what it'll look like when we're actually doing it.

''That happens, I guess. We're on incredibly big set pieces in the middle of somewhere and people sort of got wind of it.''

'Star Trek 2' also stars Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho and Alice Eve and is due for release next May.
