On a red carpet event for last night's "Star Trek Into Darkness" debut, VH1 asked stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Zachary Quinto to play "Fuck/Marry/Kill," a "game" that involves asking people who, out of their peer group, they'd hypothetically like to ... well ... have sex with, marry or kill. It's typically played by "cool" middle school kids in the back of a school bus, but it's way more fun to play with celebrities.

"Wow, is this VH1?" asked Cumberbatch. "Wow, OK. Wow, OK," said a flustered Cumberbatch. "I can't believe this. I can't believe this." Reluctantly, the "Star Trek" villain admitted that out of his crew, he would marry Spock, because he'd be good at doing tax returns and math, and kill Chris Pine:


The "Star Trek" sequel grossed "a tepid $3.3 million" in its Wednesday night opening, reports THR, but as the week continues, it's projected to earn $100 million -- $25 million ahead from Abrams' 2009 reboot.
