Re: Star Trek Teaser - Grading and Disscusion

I saw Cloverfield this morning and I thought the trailer was increbible, just like the movie. I'm just glad that they actually put the trailer in front of a movie as good as Cloverfield. TBH the showing I went to had one of the best collections of trailers I've seen: Trek, Hellboy 2, Iron Man, and Jumper all back to back.

Re: Star Trek Teaser - Grading and Disscusion

What can I say? It's nice to finally see something done for us again. We've had to sit back and watch while fans of every sort (Star Wars, Batman, Spider-Man, Harry Potter, Transformers...) got to see their worlds looked after and lovingly brought to the big screen. We've had to sit back and watch while they've had their time in the sun. While they've had trailers to get excited for. While they've had opening nights to go to.

With this trailer, their time is officially over.

Now, it's time to see our world brought (back) to the big screen. It's time for us to get excited about trailers. About going to an opening night.

It's our time, baby. :thumbsup:

The guy who did the Human:Ship size comparison video, Vektor, the person who did the April Fool's Day design, and the person who did the recent fake trailer were correct.

Not so fond on the guys with goggles welding stuff, though. Somehow it looks too modern.
I dug that part, it was my favorite aspect of the whole trailer. I've always had a soft spot for Trek (and future sci-fi in general) that looked to the future with details from past. Kirk's antique glasses, breaking a champagne bottle on the hull, I love that type of thing.
I agree about the anachronisms used in "Star Trek".

Except this time, given the apparent theme of the teaser, perhaps the welders were meant to be laborers from the 1960s rather than from the from the future. The workers from one era contructing the new future and all.

But let's be honest, the whole payoff is the glimpse of the Enterprise. We already knew there was going to be a movie. What we wanted was to "see a bit of ankle." And that's what we got.
In the Trek history of the future remember Earth has gone through WW3 along with other huge upheavels of probably cultural and economic conflicts ("the post atomic horror"). One thing I thought Enterprise did not do well was to show the future as well as say the TMP novel. Enterprise was too America centered, it looked like it was too linear with todays world. In a couple of hundred years after wars and econonomic collapse and rebuilding and restructuring there may be a mix of old and new. A guy welding with a stick welder, possibly fusion powered two pieces of starship plating made of materials that we could only guess at could be quite feasible.

Two things that will change the world:
1. Fusion power
2. Matter teleportation/manipulation

A world with these two inventions would probably be unrecognizable to us, we're 17th century people looking at the year 2000. Ben Franklin would probably be a little disapointed though looking under the hood of Ford F-150 truck that we're still using pistons to move the darn thing.

'Stick Welder'....yea cool. But i wonder what it's attatched to?

Sorry for the ramble...Loved the trailer, I want it in HD!

Re: Star Trek Teaser - Grading and Disscusion

Saw it on youtube and WOW that was great. From the first few seconds you wouldn't know it was for a Star Trek movie. The use of the transporter sound at the end gave me goose bumps. Can't wait for the next trailer.

Speaking of, anyone else who went to see Cloverfield get 10,000 BC instead for the trailer? I was kinda pissed about that, at least the movie was good.

Re: Star Trek Teaser - Grading and Disscusion

I can't remember other Trek teasers well enough to say that this one was the "best ever." What I saw at the theater tonight was good, but not quite a mind-blowing experience. They didn't show a single actor from the main cast, and I didn't like the way the starship was lit.

Anyone who says that this Trek teaser alone was worth the price of admission is certainly nuts.

Its a TEASER - anyone who had expectations that they would see any or the main cast clearly doesn't grasp what teaser trailers are for...

As for your other issue that's all about opinion I'm sure. I don't think we were supposed to get a "glory shot" for this by any means.

If memory serves there's almost always a starfield involved with Trek teaser trailers, and for Trek VI there was a projection on the Enterprise of past adventures from film and tv. That one also seemed to stand out in that it was different then most teasers. Trek II's I think was a voice over of one of the normal "voice over guys from the 80's" and a starfield. All the others escape me.

Re: Star Trek Teaser - Grading and Disscusion

Audio analysis:

It sounds like they'll be using the important Courage music cues... which makes me happy. Also, people keep calling that sound behind the delta shield logo "the transporter sound" but in fact it's more... it starts off as a TOS transporter sound but it ends up as that "ringing plant leaf" sound they used as audio atmosphere in a lot of landing party scenes... most notably in The Cage (where Spock and Pike grasp the leaves moving in the breeze and the sound stops).

A rather convenient defense. Teasers are supposed to be largely free of content, so we shouldn't criticize them for any reason. I'll try to keep that in mind.

When I was younger that plaque really confused me since well I guess I assumed: "Its a starship, it must have been built in space - yet San Francisco is a on Earth. Why would they call orbital facilities 'San Fransisco shipyards'? Given there is such a place." it always seemed contradictory to me.
It makes sense, if said shipyards are in geosynchronous orbit over San Francisco.

The ST trailer was $AU 11.00 using my "Hot Cash"/"Screen Saver" voucher - and the other trailers, ads and "Cloverfield" were free.

A bargain!

We had an "Indy 4" foyer display at "Cloverfield", with a real hat and a whip!
