Re: New ST:XI trailer

I don't get why they're not releasing it today. It is attached to a competitor's film, after all. The Watchmen trailer went online this morning; why do we have to wait until Monday?

Edit: Never mind, I figured it out. In order to have the Trek XI trailer attached to the Bond movie, Paramount probably had to agree to keep the trailer offline until Monday so as to not impact the weekend take for MGM.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

I'll be seeing Quantum of Solace tonight, and I'm trying not to get my hopes of seeing the ST trailer up too high, since it seems that quite a few theaters did not show it before their copy of QoS. It wouldn't surprise me whatsoever if it didn't make its way here to Milwaukee.

And, as much as I want to see it, I don't want a "shakycam" version. It's bad enough when you're in a theater and people around you just won't shut their popcorn-holes because they think the trailers are fair game to talk through and fiddle with their cell phones and come waltzing in at the last minute to find their seats (heaven forbid you actually make an attempt to get to the movie theater early!). To have all of that happening around some guy holding a cam like he just did a triple espresso with a shot of Jolt, trying to film a trailer...nah, pass.

Monday comes fast enough for me; I'll wait until then if it's before QoS tonight.

Yeah, I'm trying to avoid Youtube till Monday. Seeing the shaky cam of the teaser ruined it a speck for me.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

Just got back from seeing the trailer. I'm one of those uber geeks who show up just for the trailer and don't stay for the movie. In fact, I'm one of those uber-uber geeks who call seven or eight theaters first to make sure they are showing the trailer after the recent rumors of many not atttaching the Trek trailer to Quantum. (By the way, several did not).

Trailer spoilers here on out:::::::::::::

Friggin' unbelievable!!!! In a good way. Everything about this movie just screams epic. Flashbacks to little kid Kirk, flashbacks to little kid Spock, Amanda and Sarek, Pike doing the voiceover, Sarek doing a portion of the voiceover (I think???). Huge panoramic shots of Vulcan. When James T. Kirk pulls into the frame on his motorcycle, it wasn't Shatner, but it WAS James T. Kirk. Very hard to explain, but I'm blown away. The shot of Enterprise being built on the ground with Kirk looking on - wow. Really brings the shot of him watching it fall out of the sky in Movie 3 come full circle.

And the music! Pulse-poundingly great. And from what I understand that is actually from the movie's score, so even better. {Edit: Apparently it was edited by Giacchino but is not from the score.} I literally had this dopey grin throughout the entire trailer, as the music continued to build and build.

Congratulations all around to the director, producers, writers, actors, and all involved with this film. I think you just made Star Trek cool again.

Really great to hear. However, the score is from the "Children of Dune" miniseries, from what I've read.

I'll post my thoughts on it tomorrow night after seeing it with my crew.

Thanks for that correction. Trekmovie.com says it was edited for the trailer by Giacchino, so still an excellent indication of his taste and the stye he's going for.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

I absolutely loved the trailer. It was very epic, all-around. I loved how you didn't know it was a Star Trek film until little Kirk announces his name. People kind of appreciatingly laughed at that, and I think people (at least in my theater) were swayed by the end of it (approving nods and such).

Regardless of what others thought, I enjoyed the living hell out of it. The movie simply put looks gorgeous. It honestly kind of feels like Star Wars, but I think that's because no Star Trek movie has been given this scope before.

I will say some of the cinematography was interesting (the all-white of the Enterprise bridge, which at first seemed jarring, now kind of gells with Abrams' past work, in my opinion, so I can see where he's going with his aesthetic choices I think). Some of the shots were...some of them were cool, some of them were confusing, let me just say (especially the shot with the Vulcan Council, where the camera angle was sort of slanted on its side...very interesting, but a bit vertigo-inducing at the same time).

Anyway, bring on May 2009!

^Same here. I'll catch it online. Since that site may be overwhelmed, I'm thinking you will have time to sleep first.
Exactly. I'd say "overwhelmed" will probably describe that site for several hours after the trailer launch. If frustration isn't your thing, give it a while. It should provide a good textbook case on how to crash servers and such. I've noted a few trek sites slowing to a crawl, download-wise, just from response to the 1701 pic this week, so the interest is out there.

Great to see some good reviews trickling in. I think that even the grumps on these boards are gonna be happy campers in May (even if some won't admit it).

Re: New ST:XI trailer

Saw it earlier too when I saw the new Bond movie. I thought it was great too. A great way to show 13 yo James T. Kirk and then go forward. I truely think this will be a big blockbuster than any of the previous trek movies. Can't wait now. Glad they did move it til May. Makes for a better year now.
Also got to see the new Enterprise in action and it looked great. The Nacelles do go over the top of the saucer just like the old verison. Just like Church and Probert defending the first pic of the ship, that view doesn't do justice til you see this trailer.
Shows a lot of battle scenes as well. Oh also, it's Uhura and Kirk getting it on too.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

The crowd at my theater laughed.

I've been dead set on remaining optimistic about this flick but the trailer didn't fill me with much confidence.

I must remain confident.
