Check out Sylar's pointy ears!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Continuing their STAR TREK dominance, IESB and now JFX have gotten the first spy pics from the set of JJ Abrams' STAR TREK featuring one of the lead characters. Zachary Quinto as Young Spock is eerie.





He's sure got the look. That was never in question... from the beginning we knew that visually he'd pull it off. I think Quinto's a good actor, so I have faith he'll do the character justice, but I guess we'll see. Be sure to click over to JFX for more shots and over to IESB for yet more, blurrier, shots and even some video from filming!

    IESB has some good spy at Paramount

    by SpencerTrilby

    Earlier this year they dominated pretty much all things Iron Man, now Trek... And I'm pretty sure they put some juicy shit out of the Indy set as well. Coïncidence? <p> Oh, and Quinto looks "pointy" enough, indeed. I'm not a Trekkie by any means, and I don't really care for this flick one way or the other, but it looks like Spock. Nice work.

  • Nov. 12, 2007, 7:03 p.m. CST

    I'm sorry, but all I see is Sylar...

    by www.revyou.tv

    With all due respect to TV actors, it's hard to make the move to film. Karl Urban (Pathfinder, Bourne 2) would have been a cooler Spock. Here it's kinda like your buddy from school is playing the role, giving it a bit of a B-level vibe. TV actors + a TV director might = wait for the DVD...

    by Lord Elric

    He just looks like another young Vulcan, to me. I don't see the resemblance to Nimoy, at all. If anything,Sylar more resembles Eli Roth. Oh, a quick comment about the plotline ovat at IESB. If that's what the film is about, it sounds interesting. However, i fail to see how this would revive TREK. Are we talking about going on with this cast? If that's the case, then that's just plain nuts. As a one off, this could be quite interesting. I'm just having trouble seeing how it's going to breathe any new life.

    It's strange how the only time I'm excited for this film

    by samurai sark

    is when there's Zach Quinto news. I used to hate the guy, but what a vulcan/human he makes.

    Those of you bagging on the new Trek

    by queerfilmjunkie

    Don't you realize that only about 25% of the Trek movies and TV episodes are any good? To expect this to be some knock your socks off great film is a bit of a reach. Which of the Star Trek movies are great films? Seriously? Even the most died in the wool Trekkie must admit that alot of the Trek stuff is absolute shit. TOS, TNG, Voyager and DSN all had their good episodes and their bad and Enterprise sucked donkey balls. Some of the movies were good, others mediocre and others awful. Star Trek has always been a mixed bag, so why are you suddenly demanding perfection. Just be happy that they are trying to reboot the franchise. It might actually be good.

    The best bit of casting thus far

    by Reel American Hero

    So it seems they've got Spock down perfectly in this new one at least. I'm kind of iffy about the rest of the cast, but I'm still waiting to see a trailer of any sort once it's ready before I'll say this movie will suck or rock.

    There has never been a bad star trek. Even nemesis. Fuck off if you disagree.

    by football

    Though I'm hyped by the casting of Spock I'm a little less enamored by the rest of the cast. After all, who can replace Shatner or Jefferey Hunter? It appears even Abrams hasn't found the answer to that question judging by his other choices.

  • Nov. 13, 2007, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Wow! It looks like Spock

    by kirttrik

    Good choice in Casting, now we need to see who's going to fill Shatners shoes.

    Never been a bad Trek movie???

    by Kid Z

    ... are you kidding me? How about the first one? When I want to really relax, I slot that one into the DVD player and skip to the extended scene where the Enterprise flies through the V'ger cloud... and flies through the V'ger cloud... and flies through the V'ger cloud... and we see close-up reaction shots of the entire 500+ crew members... and the Enterprise flies through the V'ger cloud... and ... I have a nice looong nap! Or what about Star Trek 5: Shatner's Folly? 'Nuff said, there. Or Generations with Kirk's epic death scene, "It's... been... fun!... Oh! Shakespearean in depth, that one. Or the one where they were fighting aliens who go to the same plastic surgeon as Cher and Goldie Hawn... or, err... something. I won't even mention Nemesis because that just wouldn't be a fair fight. No kiddies, there's been a LOT of really, really BAD Trek films, wake the f**k up!

    "Good" vs. "Bad" Trek Movies

    by bswise

    The way I see it, there have been exactly three "good" (as in, decently entertaining) Trek movies: II, III, and IV. Everyone gives VI a pass, because it was the swan swong of the old farts--and it was fun--but a Klingon Christopher Plumber spewing Cliff's Notes Shakespeare quotes doth not a good screenplay make. Everyone also gives First Contact a pass, becuase it had some serious Data and Picard on Borg action, but it was also two completely ridiculous and absoloutely imlausible movies for the price of one. (Hey, Borg go back in time? Hey, how bout next time, Borg blow up whole planet.) As much a hack methinks "Jar-Jar" McAbrams to be, there really is nowhere for this franchise to go but up.

    Worst Trek ever...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...is Insurrection. Yes, even worse than Nemesis - by far.

  • Nov. 13, 2007, 4:35 p.m. CST

    Screw you guys. The Voyage Home was the best one.

    by 3 Bag Enema

    It was most like the series, and light comedy is the Shat's forte. Montalban with a plastic chest is entertaining and all, but it's too unRoddenberry. I'm going to go kill myself now.

  • Nov. 13, 2007, 5:32 p.m. CST

    The Voyage Home was goofy

    by I Dunno

    and "un-Roddenberry" can be good. The first season of TNG was Roddenberry with total control and it was fucking gay.

    with pictures of the entire cast, before some bad quality leaked pictures like that begin spreading over the internet and giving a poor first impression of the movie.

    Quinto seems like a good choice.

    by kabong

    But the lip pucker and the swishy cape don't belong on a starship. Maybe part of Starfleet Academy hazing ritual, the Epsilon Eridani frat. <p> Will the crew be wearing boots made for walking on the ship? That always seemed strange.

    I Don't Think that JJA can top TOS version of Trek.

    by DarfurOnTheRocks

    Sorry, people are getting hyped up for no absolute reason. JJ will NEVER capture the chemistry of Kirk-Spock-McCoy. I suspect that he wants to tap into the preexisting characterizations of Trek, but then go along and call it a reboot. Abrams, your reimagining mean nothing to me.

  • Nov. 14, 2007, 3:18 p.m. CST

    You know actually they weren't miniskirts...

    by Kid Z

    ... they were those culotte things... sort of a skirt/shorts chimera (look it up). Basically shorts with flaps on top to make 'em resemble a skirt. My guess is they were meant to prevent Pipple's "panty shot, panty shots." And besides, they all wore those thick-ass black pantyhose under them anyway. It was the 60s and people were real prudes back then.
