Actually, the idea that we might be able to look at this thing and not be able to sort it into a category we "get" - viewscreen or window? - is pretty "futuristic" in itself.

Looking at this picture, Paramount could have used the architecture of the Opera House to their advantage, and placed the Trek logo on building.

*Unless they tried and couldn't get permission.
Apparently after the film it was dark and they did have the windows backlit so it appeared to be gold and blue starfleet insignia.

Was Captain Robau a badass ? ?
Yes. He is intensely badass.

Is the Enterprise viewscreen also a window!?
can't tell. it's pretty cool looking.
Another question if you don't mind... did the trailers reveal most of the film?

As in, has a lot already been spoiled by all the tv spots and trailers or are there huge chunks of the film not seen yet?

there is a lot that people have speculated, some is right, some is wrong. there are significant chunks of which no one has speculated.

obviously if you're reading spoilers now, pretty much the whole movie will be revealed before the official release.

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

So, the general, non-spoiler version is that Star Trek is awesome? I have yet to read anything approximating a negative review, but then, I am being very careful to avoid spoiler-y reviews...man, May 8th can't get here fast enough!

This should probably be posted in the Non-Spoiler thread at the top of Star Trek XI forum. Thanks for sharing, Tuln.

You know the red carpet pics look somewhat sparsely attended.

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

Another positive reaction from Garth over at Dark Horizons. He attended the Sydney premiere

I myself was in attendance but can't publish my review just yet as I'm under embargo until April 21st, I will say though that those anticipating this will walk away very satisfied.

The presentation was immaculate. A special projector screen and sound system were installed simply for this event, while the film's sound technicians flew in from Los Angeles to specially remix the film to take advantage of the concert hall's acoustics.
The results on that front were exemplary, while the Texans may have gotten it a few hours earlier it can't compare to the special setup that was put in place for this event. Sadly phones and bags were checked for security reasons so I couldn't snap any shots.
Abrams and the group all stood up on stage to introduce the film, all getting loud cheers with home boy Bana in particular getting a very warm reception. After some wisecracks and comments, the film got underway.

Audience reaction, normally very muted at premieres, was surprisingly responsive. Giggles a plenty at the jokes, cheers at key points such as Nimoy's first appearance and the end of the thrilling laser drill action sequence.
As the end credits played, spotlights snapped on and highlighted the cast sitting at the front of the dress circle. A standing ovation quickly followed, the 1,600 strong crowd turning and clapping them loudly. Abrams in particular seemed quite overwhelmed by the reaction and emotion of the room.

Leaving the cinema, comments from others in attendance were quite enthusiastic on the walk down the causeway. The cast continue interviews here in Sydney on Wednesday before flying off on the next leg of their world tour.

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

Me confused - isn't it unusual to have a screening, for critics, this early before the release of a film?

Don't you want reviews to appear in the press the same week your film premiers?

Am I just hoped up on goof balls?

Forget what has been speculated, I'm talking about what's been SHOWN via trailers.

My question is, is there big chunks of the movie that no one (who hasn't attended the screenings) has seen? For instance, we've all seen the Kelvin spacebattle, drilling rig sequence, the Enterprise arriving at Vulcan, and Delta vega bits... are there are locations that we haven't seen? Or is that pretty much the whole movie?
