With the latter available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download now, Digital Spy hit the arcade with Clarke to blast away at some extraterrestrial invaders on Alienstorm.
On the agenda were the horror vs science fiction approach to Storage 24, working with JJ Abrams on Star Trek Into Darkness and his plans to return to directing in 2013.
"I've set up this film to do for next year, two actually, one to direct early in the year and then hopefully one to direct later in the year," he said.
"One of them I'm not going to be in at all, I'm going to just sit back and direct it. I'm really excited by it, people are really loving the script. The itch [to direct] is there - massively!"
On working on the upcoming Star Trek sequel, Clarke said: "JJ is awesome, he was exactly what you would hope someone like that would be. Really creative, not eccentric but just energy, pure energy.
"You see someone like him who can have fun and do the work and think on the spot and you just think, 'That is what I need to be'."
