My GOD I am going to see NUSPOCK again!!! That sells it for me, really. I'm just sooooo excited about that and even if the movie is awful you can't take NuSpock from me..
Well, I can't blame you for that.

How do you manage that, short of waiting for them to come out on DVD?
A weekday matinee a month into the movie coming out maybe? Those usually don't have many people there, and the price to see most films is usually less.

If you walked up to the movie office, pulled out your wallet and tossed enough money on the table you could get a private screening of the movie. It may be at late night/early morning as not to infringe on the regular schedule but you could get it.

Re: How Excited are You about Star Trek Into Darkness?

When I say by myself I mean me and the 5 other people who were in the cinema the last 2 Trek films. For ST:XI I was in a huge cinema in a big shopping center the day after the midnight premiere and there were about 5-8 other people there. I assume if I went into the city it wouldn't be this empty.

I am fairly excited at this stage. The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film in earnest. *crosses fingers for NO Khan*
I told you not to freak out!
"The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film in earnest." I think you mean, "The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film at all."

Re: How Excited are You about Star Trek Into Darkness?

^ Well, hey, they gave us a title. And there was all that leaked video footage.

Honestly I was surprised at the lack of all of our picking over the leaked videos. There were potentially months of examination and discussion, (read: "arguing" ) over them which we all seemed content not to bother with - much.

I'm definitely going to see it, but I'm a little nervous after watching Lindelof's Prometheus disaster.

I saw it tomorrow. It was great.

Are they concerned about what they've filmed and hurrying to salvage it? Is there something else that's a problem?


We were told - years ago! - that there would be much secrecy and tight security.

Oh ye of little faith.

Extremely excited!

About not only the film, but the 'moichendising, moichendising' as well. Can't wait to see what Hasbro comes up with - let's hope they do it better than Playmates!

I'm very excited.

And I don't get how people are still complaining on how we have next to nothing about the film, and that we should know more....

I mean, guys, this is basicly what it used to be before the internet you know? Nowadays you sit in the theatre and you'll go 'yeah, I read about this scene' or 'oh, this is what we saw as a clip online'.

There was a time when everybody was unspoiled and thought of it as (shock and horror coming) normal!!
Amen, brother!

And, yeah, I'm looking forward to the movie, but don't feel a burning desire to know all about it RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE!

Come May, I'll be in line . . . .
A thousand times this. A preview at the cinema a month or two before the movie opens is fine with me. I already know the basic premise--it's Star Trek.

You may as well ask if I'm excited about season 10 of The Big Bang Theory because I know f**k all about that too.

Re: How Excited are You about Star Trek Into Darkness?

When you are in love you don't care if you don't know what is happening next.

Delusion? Probably but it's a nice ride.
