    Catered to such a young audience

    by BurgerKing

    Trekkies must be shitting their pants. The "baditude"of Kirk in this trailer makes the movie seem targeted for a younger, broader audience than old Trekkies would be happy with. However, it does look awesome, but there is very little resemblance to Star Trek in this ad besides brief glimpses at the Enterprise. <p> It's almost as though they are hiding the Trek aspect of the movie and emphasizing on how bad ass Kirk is.

    Wow. Take intelligent science fiction, come up with a b.s. time travel concept to glaze over all continuity errors, and have splice in some "Top Gun" baloney. Oh yeah, how can I judge from the trailer? I cannot. But I can say that the trailer looks like a pile of overdone crap. I can say that.

    by Orionsangels

    Remember Star Trek 7 was supposed to start with Kirk Spacediving. He would start in outerspace and pass through the earth's atmosphere and parachute. The scene was too expensive and cut out of the movie. Now they type on keyboard, use a mouse and you get a spacediving scene in the new ST film.

    The more I see of this, the dumber it seems

    by YackBacker

    Look, STAR TREK isn't a high-falutin' cultural masterpiece. It's popcorn fare- but what makes it unique is its dorkiness. JJ and Co. are trying SO hard to not.. make... it... DORKY that they've missed the point. We must outcool STAR WARS they're thinking. And look where the SW franchise ended up- with an empty set of stories that many find forgettable.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 6:28 a.m. CST

    by Sparhawk38

    It depends on story and cast chemistry. The look is fine from what little I have seen. There was a moment in Costner's Robin Hood when Christian Slater's character yells "Fuck me!" in astonishment. It was wrong in every way. I hope the dialogue strives for more than trying to connect with today's language...

    by rbatty024

    the other preview. So far, the preview with half a second of Leonard Nemoy was the most exciting. I'm crossing my fingers that they can handle this, but at this point I have so little invested in Trek that it isn't going to kill me if they ruin a franchise that's already in the dumpster.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:44 a.m. CST

    This Trek has to do two things:

    by rbatty024

    1) win over new fans and 2) turn out a fun film. Without the first one then Trek is dead, and without the second one it might as well be dead. <p> It looks like they're trying to win over new fans. Without this there's no point in making another film. Trek just isn't viable. Because of this I think any new Trek should be given a little leeway to accomplish this goal. It would be nice if films could just cater to hardcore geeks, but unfortunately hardcore geeks alone do not push box office numbers. <p> As far as the second, I have my fingers crossed. It looks like there's some decent action and they're at least making gestures towards the personality of the characters. It might not be what I would have done, or even what Gene Roddenberry would have done, but it appears as if they are trying. At this point in the franchise that's about all I can ask for.

    by joker2thief

    I hope to christ you incessant whiners go opening day and pay to see this, even if it's just so you can spend the next 6 months whining about how it raped your childhood. This has to have as much eyecandy as possible to bring in new viewers, and if it does well, then we can look forward to a new series of films where character takes over as the budget gets trimmed. Fanboys don't remember the SFX masturbation exercise that was ST:TMP. If no one had gone to see that, there would be no WOK. So shut up with the whining, and go see the goddamn film.

    Age Before Beauty

    by JumpinJehosaphat

    I can see why many Trek fans may not be ready to digest this particular story of younger versions of classic characters. Star Trek has typically shown us seasoned, older professionals we can gain immediate respect for while giving us the likes of Wesley to represent Star Fleet youth. When the whole story seems to revolve around the younger set, it's traditionally not a fan fave. Therefore, it's pretty clear they're deciding to call it good enough with the traditional fan base, and pick up new fans. I wonder if it'll pan out like the new BSG has, or be more divisional betwixt the old guard and the newbs....

    I am a trekkie. I know it's trekker but I don't give a fuck about that shit. I was thoroughly disappointed about the cast when it first came out. The trailers though have me excited. It's a new look to trek and we have to give it a shot, cause let's face Star Trek is on it's last leg. I'm sorry but Voyager and Enterprise were not good shows. The producers of Trek ran that shit into the ground. This is what it needs. I'm just worried about JJ's third acts. His conclusions are horrible MI3's ending was absolute shit compared to the great first 2 acts.

    The one thing that will break/make for me...

    by mrfan

    is the relationships and chemistry between the characters. Star Trek the original series definitely showed us that. There were some stinkers in terms of episodes. The saving grace was the chemistry between the characters and actors. That is the one important factor for me. You can give out a super storyline. You can dazzle me with special effects. Without the human element you just won't have a movie.<p>I will probably see this (unless the worst reviews possible appear). Hopefully, it can capture some of the magic that was seen before. It is a tough act to follow and I wish it the best.

I say Incredible Hulk style good-not-great numbers. Still, they dropped a shit-ton of cash on this and it's nice to see Star Trek take one more shot at the mainstream. And the mind-boggles that they're actually trying a comic-book style Sequel/Prequel/Reboot all in one movie... how will mainstream audiences wrap their heads around that one?

    by MarkSingle

    I've been a huge fan of Star Trek ever since I saw the first episode of TOS in the 70s. (Yes, I'm old!) Having the privilege of being able to see about 25 minutes of the new Star Trek two weeks ago,I can only say this: THIS MOVIE WILL FREAKING ROCK! The spacedive scene is unlike anything you ever saw in a Star Trek movie and the scene in which Leonard Nimoy introduces Kirk to (the new) Scotty is sheer magic. I think this reboot is exactly what the franchise needed. Can't wait to take my 11 year old son to this one!

    BSB- the game was boring for 3/4 quarters

    by YackBacker

    But the ending was fantastic. I was rooting for Arizona by the end of it, I didn't like the penalties, overall officiating. This STAR TREK movie looks kinda dumb at this point, but maybe I'm wrong (hopefully!). I hope you and the wifey are doing well.

    Oh, yeah, this is going to be so "sexy."

    The Star Trek movies have mostly been bad.

    Looking good so far

    by Lane_myers111

    very pleased with with the look of this so far.Never been to a convention and probably never will. Love Next generation and own the boxsets.Love DS9 and will own the box sets. Love a few Voyager episodes but especially hated the entire concept of Enterprise. There was no need to go back,shackling yourself creatively because you cant and shouldnt mess with what you know has to follow your story. They should have done a story set say 400 years after voyager. There would have been limitless ideas,technology and directions they could have focused on. Among other things they could have expanded the idea that Star Fleet has a few timeships that operate under a temporal prime directive as suggested in voyager. Any way as Star Trek Fans weve had pretty much a terrible time since DS9 finished. The last 2 films have been absolutely shit. Voyager was mostly awful and enterprise in my opinion at least was a bad mis step.much as i respect that William Shatner and the original crew are legends and the franchise owes them everything,they arent gonna be around much longer and the Star Trek Universe should not die with them. This actor playing Kirk knows hes never gonna be close to Shatner in the Hearts of fans. Give the guy a chance to be something different. Those criticizing him saying man, i dont understand,Kirk,Bones and Scotty used the word numerous times "Im a Doctor man" "God Dammit man" and so on. I thought the delivery was fine. Of course it could still be shit you can never tell from trailers these days but so far so good i say.

    I thought Abrams was world famous for his precise dialogue.<p> "Why are you talkin ta me, maaaaan?"<p> Right - James T Kirk was a roughneck mall rat skateboarding suburbopimp before hooking up with John Wayne Jr in the role of "Mah. Len.Herd.Mah.COY.Peeel.Gruuhm.

    It's interesting to note ...

    by OneBuckFilms

    that those who saw the 20+ minute preview of scenes from the film give it an overall thumbs up, yet the detractors have seen little more than the trailers etc. the rest of the world has. There could be some wisdom in there ...

    ArcadianDS, James T. Kirk as seen in this film is different due to events in the movie, also due to the fact that he has not been through training yet. The character does have to evolve you know.

    Karl Urban will steal this movie

    I think I have it figgerd out.

    by kronos6948

    Make this movie cater to the masses, then, once this one is a big hit, the sequel can be more for us Trek fans...depending on if JJ wants to cater to us at all.

  • Feb. 2, 2009, 9:06 p.m. CST

    I tell you one thing that I find annoying..

    by malificus the whole scene establishing what a "bad boy" young Kirk is by driving a classic Corvette off a cliff for thrills. That is stOOpid with capital "o"'s. First of all, why is there a road leading to a blind cliff face with no warning signs of any kind, and second why a classic 20th century Corvette and third why is it just so damn cliche? They should show the Corvette hitting the canyon floor and exploding into flames on the rusted hulk of Thelma & Louise's converatble just to drive the point home. Oh, and don't get me started on the whole assembling the Enterprise in a ground-based shipyard when anyone fucking knows that the Enterprise superstructure is bolstered by tractor fields because without it the sheer weight of it in anything but zero gravity would cause it to collapse. Sorry to sound like such a Trek geek, and with all due respect to Abrams because I love LOST, but it seems as though he's willing to ignore key aspects of Trek if it doesn't fit into a particular shot or action sequence he wants to do. I think he has a core disrespect for the franchise, he's not a fan at all, it seems like just a prime gig for him and though there are things I like about what he's doing he should understand that only the die-hard Trek fans are going to matter, he's NOT going to convert anyone based on his take, people will avoid Trek like the plague simply because it IS Trek and they don't want the stink of it on their cool, so by shitting on canon he's only screwing his new moneymaker. The "gayface" bit I find hilarious, but actually the guy has throwback Jeffery Hunter good looks and I think the casting is great, IF the guy can act. Finally, I DON'T like having Nimoy in the film, though I love the guy, enough is enough and just thank GOD the Shat isn't appearing because he'd kill the fucking movie quicker than a summer release. Oh.....damn....

    Although the rumors abound that it will be a time travel scnario, no matter what it may be, Leonard Nimoy's presence may lend some validity in spite of the fact that those of us who have been around since the beginning (ST-TOS and films with the original cast) may be skeptical to see all the flash and bang of the new film. We can only hope there will be more substance than spectacle.
