Extended Star Trek trailer shows Captain Kirk hit by self-doubt...
UK Daily Mail ^

Posted on 12/17/2012 3:45:45 PM PST by Perdogg

Earlier this month Trekkies were treated to a minute-long teaser trailer for the eagerly awaited Into Darkness movie.

But now fans of the hit Star Trek franchise have another minute of footage to relish with the release of an extended trailer.

The latest one is almost two-minutes long, with fast-paced running scenes and fiery explosions, all set to an emotive musical score that descends into a foreboding drone.

Thanks. Looks like Holmes vs. Kirk, with a similar over voice trailer as the new Superman man of steel.

So that goofy-looking Enterprise gets destroyed. Good.

I'm a "Star Trek" fan from the beginning, but I just can't warm up to little boys commanding starships. I mean, in the future, will 25 year olds really rise up that fast in the chain of command?

Give me a Commander Kirk [and a Spock, and an Uhuru] with a little life-experience. A couple wrinkles. Just a few.

40 should be the minimum age for a starship commander.

It doesn't sound to me like that's Kirk hit with self-doubt. It sounds like Admiral Pike trying to talk some humility into him instead.

George Washington was a general at 22. :)

The federation is the equivalent of a navy. I may be wrong, but if you get appointed a rank due to circumstances, and do the job well, they probably won’t demote you.

But somebody, who knows better, can correct me if you can’t keep a rank that you get appointed to.

Yeah, but, c'mon, life expectancy was about 40 then.

I'm just being a crank [but you knew that.] Even back in '69, Commander Kirk must have been pushing 40. A more mature Kirk would spark more interest from me in the new films.

But, of course, I won't go see them anyway. So, who cares?

Gah! They put way to much guyliner on the male actors these days. Otherwise looks like a good date movie for hubby to take me to.

More wussification of Star Fleet.

First they make the Captain a wimp who chooses Earl Grey Tea over Romulan Brandy (then later try to rehbilibate his machismo in a bar fight but too late) AND put a touchy-feely “counselor” (read: liberal doubter).

I was rooting for the Borg. Now I can root for the bad guy,

Age or waist measurement?

FWIIW, James T. Kirk was 31 when he took command of the Enterprise (according to the original canon).

Shatner’s Kirk was 34...he says so in “The Deadly Years.”

Shatner was 38 and I’ve always carried a torch for him since I was about 10, sigh.

“I mean, in the future, will 25 year olds really rise up that fast in the chain of command?”

No, just Kirk, because, well, he’s Kirk. I’m not going to let a little detail like that bother me too much, because they did a pretty impressive job with the reboot overall.

Really, I can’t think of another actor besides Pine who could play Kirk and pull it off as well. He managed to capture the essence of the role without it coming off as a cheesy Shatner impersonation, which I think is pretty impressive. So, I’ll forgive them for making Kirk younger, instead of picking an older actor who wouldn’t give as good of a performance.

WOW! Thanks for the reminder! Worth pondering.

I haven't seen the trailer, but in TOS there were several episodes where Kirk expressed self-doubt to McCoy.

He was born in ‘31 and the series started in ‘66, so that means he was about 35. I also carried a bit of a torch ...! I got to meet him in 2006. He was in great shape (not fat) and seemed like a very comfortable guy who liked people a lot but who didn’t give a particular damn whether or not they liked him. I was pleasantly surprised. I liked him: you always know where you stand with people like that.

I would hope by the 23rd century that wrinkles have been ironed out, so to speak.

A young commander wouldn’t hit the post button multiple times.

You’re right, but he was 38 or so when I was 12.... He’s actually only two years younger than my father. But he was dreamy then and his eyes twinkled.

And I still fall for that strong man-mischievous boy act. Save the world and make the girls giggle. It’s Tom Sawyer all grown up. Yummy.

I took my son to see The Hobbitt in IMAX 3D on Saturday, and they played a special IMAX 3D teaser of Into Darkness. It was almost 10 minutes long. Looks great.

I did the same thing, except on Friday night. After about 3 minutes of the extended scene, my friend’s girlfriend turned to me and asked if this part of the movie was in the book.

I was like, “No, Captain Kirk was not in the Hobbit!”

I have to admit for a minute I thought I went into the wrong theater or something. I didn’t know it was coming, but it was cool.

I saw the Hobbit, and the extended trailer, as well, I got dizzy during the goblin cave. The 3D wasn’t well done during this scene.

The only episode I can recall is the episode where there are two Kirks caused by the transporter accident.

It looks like they copied the scene from Skyfall with the caskets, I hope Kirk doesn’t have mommy or daddy issues.

Well, you've probably solved it then. I was 16 in '69, so Shatner's 34 looked grizzled and time-worn to me. Guess it's a matter of perspective. Everyone under 50 looks like a kid to me now.
