Looks like quite the pompadour there. Still makes me think of Garth.

Re: First Poster

I'm seriously underwhelmed by this poster - looks 100% like the Batman posters. Along with the synopsis, this just makes me believe that they're hellbent on making this the "Dark Knight" to ST09's Batman Begins - whether the story is all that clever or not.

I'll wait for the first trailer to see if my excitement sets in then. For now, I have no opinion on this film except: Let's hope it's more than what we know so far suggests: A rip-off of everything from Heart of Darkness to Batman...

Does this mean 47% of Starfleet and the Federation as a whole will be targeted for detonation?

Does he have PADDs full of humanoid females?

Meh... Everything borrows from everything. There aren't any original ideas left save for perhaps some strange disjointed "art" films that try to be original by being incoherent.

Nothing wrong with retelling stories, that's where all of our best stories have come from.

I'm glad I haven't held my breath waiting for something original from Star Trek the last four decades or so.

Makes me think of Starship Troopers- Rio trashed by a bug asteroid, and Doogie Howser in his Gestapo coat...

There are no soldiers, weapons, ships in conflict. Only one man. Excluding someone with super powers, it can be a terrorist attack

Khan's followers are placed on ships throughout the fleet waiting for their cue to attack.

Exactly! Cue the music.



The poster is nice, though.

Re: First Poster

I don't get why everyone is whinging about the dark knight poster. The resemblance is superficial at best. But then people are doing the same thing about the ME3 posters, so i shouldn't be surprised I guess.

Re: First Poster

^I haven't noticed whining, but nothing is wrong with noticing an unmistakable, but well-made, ripoff. The poster is nice, but it makes me ready for the next batman movie, not whatever they are doing with Star Trek. And the fact that I have to say "whatever" is kind of too bad. I'm not talking about giving out a bunch of details, but rather the idea that this movie has its own identity. That was what was nice about the last Batman trilogy. It didn't seem to be doing what everything around it was... I do hope this film succeeds, though.

Re: First Poster

Was there some discussion that the Enterprise would end up being underwater? If so, I hope they do a scene like this.
