Star Trek fans have been waiting anxiously to see exactly how the relationship between Spock and Uhura develops in the sequel.
But, if super-villain John Harrison has anything to do with it, the relationship is doomed to end in tragedy.

is there a spoiler alert with this.
I do not want to see more than is on the current US trailers.
it ticks me off that Star Trek an American show (yes we all know it embraces multi culturalism) opens first in Australia and Europe. what’s with that?
The IS the current US trailer.
I saw the pictures. The way these characters capture the physical appearance of the original Spock and Uhura, in younger form, is impressive. However, the photos of that kiss make me think more of a couple of young women I knew years ago who fell in love with homosexual men...sort of sad and icky at the same time. And it’s sad that so many romances from the screen these days that have any juice to them are fantasy, fall-in-love-with-an-alien-or-vampire...And, of course, the actor that plays Spock is an outed gay guy.
It’s been going that way for years. The late great actor Ron Silver, self described liberal who was mugged on 9/11, was on Book TV a few years ago and told us why. Hollywood’s priorities aren’t the US box office anymore. It’s now foreign releases and DVD sales. Also what drove all of the anti American films for the past few years.

Its our own fault. Hollywood can make a movie full of anti-American, anti-family, anti-Christian content, but if it has “great special effects” and “lots of action”, many people will see it anyway. They’ll tell you, “I didn’t see it for the plot, which was terrible. I just didn’t want to miss the special effects and they were AWESOME! You should go see it—in 3D!!”
We are Pavlov’s Dog.
Just another movie in a long list of movies I won’t see. I only watched about 1/3 of the first one and it sucked IMO.
I don’t think his orientation matters, as long as he can be convincing as Spock. He’s a good actor, IMO. And from everything I have read, he doesn’t swish around lisping “i’m here, I’m queer, get used to it”!
He was in both seasons of American Horror Story and he killed it! Literally in some cases.
Unfortunately it comes down to economics, and it's going to continue to get worse. Check out some the film revenue sites like boxofficemojo, films these days make far, far more (sometimes as much as 5 times) outside the US than they do inside. So, in response, Hollywood is catering to a non-US audience more and more.
Funny, though, if you look at TV, it would seem to be the opposite. For example, NCIS gets 20 million US viewers a week while ALMOST A MILLION each in Canada, Australia, and Europe watch it.
I wonder how much in taxes Hollywood pays. Guessing they already get a huge break releasing overseas, and then the anti-American films probably have to pay no taxes anywhere, just free propaganda for the Hussein Heads.
I loved it... and i fell in love with Spock all over again!
I watched the first one at the theater when it came out.
I liked it well enough.
Watched it again on Amazon so I could brush up on it before seeing the next one.
Maybe I wasn’t paying attention, but, the first time, I somehow missed the significance of the plot device of this new series being in a completely altered future from now on. It’s a somewhat clever mechanism to let this new series deviate significantly from everything before, while still retaining similarities and characters.
It was obvious the second time through, and I don’t know how I missed it the first time - maybe I went to get more popcorn during crucial scenes or something.
Too bad Spock is gay !
Many will see it specifically for the anti-American, anti-family, anti-Christian content.
About a third of our country (all on the left) share those opinions and love to have them validated.
My problem is, once I know an actor is gay, I have a hard time not seeing him as any thing more than "the gay guy" in whatever movie he's in. Take George Takei, Sulu from the original Star Trek. I never had a problem with watching him until he came out as gay several years ago. Now I can't watch the orginial series without looking for gay mannerisms in the actor, which tends to take me out of the story.
when i see star trek i want to see adventure stories, not touchy-feelie crap.
Iron Man 3 also — already grossed $250M overseas.
