Have you seen the other Trek-trailers? Lots of explosions (and in the case of Nemesis, fucking) there also.

It's a fucking movie-trailer!
What did you expect?
'Faust'?

Re: New ST:XI trailer

I've seen the trailer and some screengrabs (rest assured, Mister Moderator Sir, I won't be posting any links - anyway, if I found them, so can anybody...)
Here's my two cents on it:

- There's indeed a Star Wars influence in the movie. For me, being a huge fan of both franchises, it doesn't bother me at all. But I do understand why some of you don't like it. The rather cool "robocop" guy, for instance, could very well be some sort of super-droid from the separatist army!
- For those moaning (and bitchin') about how come there's still gas in the 23th century, please listen carefully the next time (or the first time) you watch the trailer: I can't hear a V8 running, or at least any V8 I know! The car is probably equipped with some state-of-the-art gizmo enabling it to move...
- By the way, fot those complaining about how stupid it is for young Kirk to throw the car into the cliff, well pay attention again: the road ends there!
And it's no natural cliff, either: in the first seconds of the trailer we see the Corvette blasting through some kind of road block. It's probably some forbidden area, hence the cops chasing Jim. Maybe the ruins of a WWIII-striken city?
- So much for the "Enterprise is built on Earth but assembled in space" theory. The trailer clearly shows the ship being built... in one piece! And by the way, I'd like to meet the Paramount "spy" who described this very scene in AICN as "Kirk wanders through the desert in his bike and then stops by some factory". Moron!
- The Big E looks great in motion, as I expected it to be. The nacelles' pylons are curved! There's a great shot of it leaving the space station (yes, the space station we all know from the original movies)
- Sarek looks great.. as do the Vasquez Rocks!
- The hangar scene looks awesome (the screengrab I saw shows that one of the cadets is alien)
- The "swirling" transporter effect is cool
- Quinto is great as Spock... and looks MENACING in the scene where Kirk confronts him!
- Kirk faces an amazing monster in the ice planet
- Nero's ship is HUGE! There's a great shot of the Kelvin facing it that shows it's tremendous size
- Bones looks POSSESSED (and great!) in the "space is dangerous" scene
- I didn't like much Scotty and his "wacky" presence. Pegg's scottish accent is spot-on, nevertheless...
- There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene with Pike ordering something. Bruce Greenwood looks the commandeering presence I've always assumed he would be!
- The space battles look amazing... and breathless
- The bridge is WHITE (and, judging by the screengrabs, full of those barcode readers we saw in the pictures) and the curved corridors look great too (by the way, they have nothing to do with the ones we saw earlier this year in the 1701.com viral site... )

All in all, I loved it!

Just one thing...

There's SEX in the movie?
Kirk is a womaniser? Who's the retard who wrote that?
I'm boycotting it!!!!!!!!!

(Please note that this last bit isn't exactly irony-free...)

Star Trek with sex appeal, who'd of thunk?

The vibe I got was this was intended to be a mainstream movie first and foremost and a Trek Movie.tm second. Broad appeal is what I saw here - lets hope it turns out to be so.

Different yet at the same time familiar I can live with it. Now I'm all pumped!

It certainly isn't what we are used to seeing from our typical Star Trek films -- that is it isn't BermanTrek, nor is it RoddenberryTrek -- it is very, very different.

Aside from the clichéd opening scene of the trailer (maybe that scene will translate better in the context of the film) I thought the rest of the trailer made the movie look great. It does't look like anything like Star Trek 1-10, but it still looked like a fun, exciting, and interesting film...and isn't that what we want?

My only real problem with it is that people are driving motorcycles and old cars in the 23d century. Fucking ridiculous. Otherwise, seemed pretty cool. I like the look of the ship's interior, and I'm glad they used the classic uniforms.

^^There are people today who still use 19th-century modes of transportation to get around (sailboats, rowboats, horses, etc.). Horse-and buggies are still popular today in some rural countries, and even in some parts of the U.S.

Maybe George Kirk Senior collects old cars and motorcycles.

Could be. We'll have to see the scene in context to know for sure, I guess.

Well, err....


It also makes sense as Kirk collects antiques.

Maybe picked up the hobby at a young age from his father or similar role model figure.


And yeah, there are still really old modes of tansport and equipment still used. In my local town, Faversham, Kent UK, where we have Britains oldest brewer, we have a horse drawn delivery cart from 1855 Still works, looks great, and still used.
