A wise man once said: "After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

Once the trailer comes, the bitching will erupt. "Too much lens flare!" "Not enough lens flare!" "Oh man, they're doing a re-tread of Khan!" "Oh man, they're not doing a re-tread of Khan!" "Too much Kirk, not enough Spock!" "Too much Spock, not enough Kirk" "Too much Kirk and Spock, no Riley!" "They went with Riley and still no Rand?" "They have Rand? Of course they're trying to appeal to the sexist men!" "They don't have Rand, they're not doing enough for the sexist men!" "Spock isn't shouting!" "Spock is shouting!"

I think I've made my point...
Expectations are low. After the disapointment of the last one, getting excited seems premature.

Nope. They really don't.

In fact, if you think back to the way news and promo for the last movie was handled, you'll remember that they were very stingy with details and peeks until the last three or four months before release. Thinking it will be substantially different this time around may be to hold an unreasonable expectation.

You'll do that if you decide you must, but if it's all the same to you, I'd rather drama threads like this one not become a regular thing.

Hey, fair point.

I promise you that I'm being ironic rather than dramatic though, it's just a film and I'm sure l'll last until the film comes out without popping!

I certainly don't want to draw a moderators attention after 3 or 4 posts.

A serious point though, I'm a customer of Abram's and Abram's isn't delivering to my satisfaction! I want to see something I'll spent the next few months following, is it worth following? Is it worth giving up my time for?

So on and so forth.

Hmmmm, never thought of my self as a "customer" in regards to film, the theater for sure, but not the film. Though, I suppose I am. Still, its the end product that I'm "buying". So its a bit early to care about the marketing campaign or to start deciding if I'll see it. Okay, I'll be seeing it no matter what. They don't have to sell me. The teasers, trailers and ads are just gravy.

I think we're customers; we want the product, we want quality, we want the narrative running through the exercise. I want smoke blown up my ass, I want to be teased and toyed with as a valued customer should be, I want to be bullshitted and stroked.

I want a trailer.

A secondary title to distinguish it from the rest of the franchise?
No other "Star Trek" movie was simply called "Star Trek".

Some countries promoted it as "Star Trek: The Future Begins", taking the slogan from the posters. Won't that do?

What's wrong with "Star Trek (2009)"?

Abrams will probably just name this one Star Trek 2 to vex the fans and continuity both at once.
We've had a "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan", so "Star Trek 2" is fine.

I recall a joke from the creators of "Jaws 2", who said they avoided the traditional Roman numerals for the first sequel because they were hoping to reduce confusion when they reached "Jaws 11".

Paramount marketing will release a teaser or trailer when they think its best, they wont want to release anything so soon that move goers forget about it. There arent many movies where they release trailers 9 months before the film is due for release.

Yup. Everything else is icing.
The news I care about is that the BO is an even bigger monster hit than the last one.

I'd be very surprised if the quality of the movie is the problem, but to really solidify that Trek Is Back, we need two top ten movies in a row. Then Les Moonves will start listening to TV pitches, so we can have a TV show ready to go, launching in the fall, few months after the third movie's summer debut to ride the PR wave.

I could probably tolerate not having any news. What gets me is that every few weeks or so we have Abrams and his cohorts saying things like "the movie is awesome, but we can't tell you anything" and variations thereof. It gets tiresome after awhile.

It is very frustrating, yes. Marvel started promoting the Avengers nearly 2 years before the movie came out and it helped wonders for them. Its about 9 months away and the forced secrecy is kind of dampening the thrust for Star Trek it seems to me. Of course not to me or other Star Trek fans, but the general movie going audience.
