Quinto And Burk On 'Reframed' 'Star Trek'

Star Trek XI will hopefully reinvigorate the Star Trek franchise and lead to more Star Trek movies in the future.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, as seen in SFX, many terms have been bandied about when it comes to describing the new Star Trek movie, and Zachary Quinto came up with yet another one. When asked if the objective was to reinvigorate Star Trek, Quinto said, "I think it is. I think it's to reframe a franchise whose genesis had incredible foresight. It was a very prescient series, ahead of its time, and it had so much social relevance when it first came on the air. It's about taking the integrity of that and reframing it for today's world, which is obviously vastly different from the world of forty years ago."

It's up to fans to support this effort to restart Star Trek though. "Once it's released into the Zeitgeist, then it's not up to us," said Quinto. "I hope people respond in a way that gives these characters and this story some more life but that's something that will only reveal itself once the movie is released."

Executive Producer Bryan Burk agreed with Quinto's sentiments. "If enough people go and see the movie, hopefully the franchise will continue. That's the plan and that's the hope. Having seen the movie, everyone here says this feels like a big summer movie."

Eager fans may see a new trailer for Star Trek XI by the end of the year according to Roberto Orci as reported by IESB. When asked when would fans be able to see the new Star Trek XI trailer, Orci said, "Before Christmas sometime I think."

Well, I had been guessing Thanksgiving weekend, but it looks like I'm off a bit.

Ironic, we get the trailer at the time we were originally supposed to get the movie. I wonder when they would've released the trailer if TPTB hadn't changed it to a summer movie?

Re: Quinto And Burk On 'Reframed' 'Star Trek'

I know that the summer is a big time for movie ticket sales, but where do Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas weekends rate? Is there an advantage to Thanksgiving over Christmas other than it's earlier? Do any other factors come into play?

Wow. I'm honestly not excited anymore about this film. That sounds rather shallow, but all these months of scripted comments and now no trailer until Christmas or so has left me feeling flat about this movie. I wish I didn't feel that way, but it's like being at a striptease where 40 minutes go by and only the first veil has come off.

Interesting analogy, and so true!

Re: Quinto And Burk On 'Reframed' 'Star Trek'

We keep hearing that this movie isn't being made for Star Trek fans, but rather for the public at large.

Yet, all of this secrecy is the type of thing that studios normally look to avoid when it comes to their movies. The more publicity the better.

Once again, the ONLY buzz that has been around this movie has been on Star Trek boards. And, that buzz has been extremely monotonous.

If this movie is as close to being done as they claim it is, they would be revving up the hype machine for this $150m movie and never let up until it was released.

I know I tend to be a cynic. But, more often than not, if somebody wants to avoid telling me about something until the very last minute, it's because they think there's something about it I won't like.

Nobody every waits to tell people something good.

Re: Quinto And Burk On 'Reframed' 'Star Trek'

What's the point of getting excited about a movie 7 months in advance?

I plan on getting excited when I'm at the theator. Until then, there's no point in worrying about it. Fans will see it, hype or no hype. For everyone else, hyping it too soon won't do enough to justify the cost.

We'll get a trailer around xmas (that's still 5 months ahead of the release) and then a hype machine will slowly build starting next year probably.

It's all good.

it's like being at a striptease where 40 minutes go by and only the first veil has come off.
More like, we showed up ten hours early and have nothing better to do but sit there staring at the stage, ten dollar bill clutched firmly in trembling hand.

Ten dollars?! That's what it cost to go to a movie?
