Click here for the new kick-*** trailer for Star Trek!
Must have Quicktime. Available in HD.
There’s a premise that I see a lot in the movies these days. It’s one that proposes the best leaders were the worst kids. That’s NOT a great message to send out to all the kids that will go to see this movie.
I wonder how far they will take this premise into the movie. Is he a rag tag scoundrel until he is gifted leadership? Once again, not a very good message for children viewing the movie.
BTTT ( For later not-at-work viewing)
Are there any clues there on how to get the Ferringei out of the White House?
Non quick time starting point:
And yeah, WOW!
My college roommate was a Trekkie. We’d come back to the dorm from our night jobs at the Pla-More Bowling Center in LaCrosse, and watch the reruns. I got hooked, had to have more, and spent a small fortune at the used book store on more Trek stories.
Introduced my then boyfriend, now spouse, to the series, and raised both our children as Trekkies. Haven’t quite gotten our grandson hooked - yet - but I’m sure we will. :-)
We’ve seen the movies, the original series, and all the spinoffs, multiple times.
I hope this really is FINALLY a return to the Anti-PC BC that infested star trek franchises in the last decades.
Garbage. Sorry. But, it is.
This looks absolutely awesome! I can’t wait to see it. Syler will make a great Spock!!
This looks like the recent attempt to re-do the classic 1960 film "The Time Machine." The 1960 original had top-rate actors, Wells' greaty story, imaginative F/X, and holds-up very well despite a small budget. The 2004 remake is huge, loud, a departure from the Wells novel, had a big budget, and is a loser that disappeared after six weeks at the box office.
Hollywood's attempt to remake iconic stories has failed 95% of the time. The new Trek contunues the trend. It is clearly a Dress Up movie: young actors (kids) playing grown-up with newer toys. The original Trek actors were stage trained and had the deep baritone voices from that training. The trailers for the new Trek show, well, basically, kids, dressed-up as Kirk, Spock, et al, backed by ILM's eye-popping but ultimately empty F/X. They have sharp, alto voices and have clearly been TV-only actors. The Trailers show the film to be the 98th remake of the same story. This presents a problem for whomever sees it. Kids watching will go for the F/X. Older folks (like me) cannot help but compare it to what has come before: good stories that relied primarily upon experienced actors and writers to hold the audience. Frankly, watching the trailers is, for me, uncompelling. I laughed at Quinto acting as Spock, frankly. Nimoy is a one-of in that role, which he played with a twinkle and from a background of years of theater. Quinto comes across as a kid auditioning for a high school production of Star Trek. The kid playing Kirk is the bratty kid you knew in junior high who always bullied the weaker kids. Some role rewrite. Sorry.
Abrams has been a greatly successful director and producer, but this film is clearly about noise and F/X, not story. Abrams has reinvented Kirk to be a dangerous misfit who is sent packing to Star Fleet before he does any more damage. This is the reverse of the original role, a man of intense but controlled feelings who felt duty and honor were the highest callings.
This movie will open big and then vanish.
Looks great to me. You know there has always been two view of the future. That portrayed by Star Trek and that portrayed by Mad Max. I am afraid we are headed towards Thunderdome faster than Star Fleet.
Is it just me or does the villain look like a chubby Carville?
Holy Cow! That looks awesome. I think I just had a geekasm and I’m counting down to May 8!
As soon as I hear that it doesn’t contain any socialist / environmentalist propaganda the wife and I will be buying tickets. :) (If it has just a little then I’ll wait for it on Blu-Ray)
Actually in times of war some of our best leaders have been people who were misfits as kids. They don’t fit into polite society well, but gawd are they good commanders when it counts. Grant comes to mind as does Patton and Napolean. None were good with the polite society stuff, but they could win wars. As could Halsey, LeMay, Montegomery, Forest and others.
Actually, I would say he is more of a Volcan. Logical, superficially impressive, but ultimately clueless. At least the Ferrengei understand free markets...
a Ferrengi would honor a contract and never allow Obama’s collectivist manure.
Obama speaks like a Romulan...
The STAR TREK FRANCHISE HASNT BEEN ANY GOOD AT ALL FOR MANY MANY YEARS NOW. LET IT DIE ALREADY!

ps: yes voyager really really really sucked. seriously sucked. What did you expect from an actress captain who is a flaming liberal whose show had to be rescued by an eye candy wife of a republican caught in a wife swapping sex scandal that allowed a sacrificial candidate to accidentally become senator and then run for president based on associalitions with radical left wing enemies of liberty organizations.
yes voyager really sucked.
