    Amen, brother!

    And, yeah, I'm looking forward to the movie, but don't feel a burning desire to know all about it RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE!

    Come May, I'll be in line . . . .

    I'm not overly excited but it is likely to be an opening weekend film for me

    I'm mostly meh.

    The 2009 film I was incredibly excited about. Hell, I travelled to another country just to see the European premiere. Then the film was a disappointment to me. Now I'm not that invested anymore.

    I'm more annoyed by the secrecy that TPTB have shrouded this film in. I'm looking forward to it and I hope it's good, of course, but I'm starting to get worried since no teaser or trailer is out yet when it's less than 8 months away from release. Are they concerned about what they've filmed and hurrying to salvage it? Is there something else that's a problem? Cumberbatch should be excellent if his character is written and directed well. I liked the 2009 film alot but it was hardly without some annoying flaws that chould've/should've been caught by the experienced and successful team of the writers and the director. I'm hoping that with all the time that they have taken to get this one together, they've spent it wisely to avoid such issues this time. I would be much more into it if they shared the basics that the vast majority of studios provide by this point: a trailer that depicts the stars and their roles as well as the basic plot. While it's a safe bet that something will come soon, I'm starting to get that bad vibe that I usually get when a film doesn't provide a review for critics usually out of fear that it will be universally panned. Don't freak: I know we're not at the point but it's just the feeling I'm getting and I'm hoping I'm wrong.

    ^Cue the Debbie Downer sound effect. Don't worry, it'll be Killer. I hope. ;-)

    I am fairly excited at this stage. The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film in earnest. *crosses fingers for NO Khan*

    I am super exited. Loved the previous movie so I am really excited to see this movie. So far nothing has come out to diminish my enthusiasm.

    In the middle. I didn't like the last one much at all, which is rather odd given that I have been able to like every other Trek series and almost every Trek film.

    I'll watch it, probably at a midnight screening because it's best experienced with fellow Trek nuts, but won't go in with any high hopes.

    I like watching the new movies by myself. I don't want other people and their noises impinging on my pure experience.

    How do you manage that, short of waiting for them to come out on DVD?

    Well, I can't blame you for that. ;)

    A weekday matinee a month into the movie coming out maybe? Those usually don't have many people there, and the price to see most films is usually less.

    If you walked up to the movie office, pulled out your wallet and tossed enough money on the table you could get a private screening of the movie. It may be at late night/early morning as not to infringe on the regular schedule but you could get it.

    When I say by myself I mean me and the 5 other people who were in the cinema the last 2 Trek films. For ST:XI I was in a huge cinema in a big shopping center the day after the midnight premiere and there were about 5-8 other people there. I assume if I went into the city it wouldn't be this empty.

    I told you not to freak out! :p
    "The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film in earnest." I think you mean, "The real excitement will kick in once they begin promoting the film at all." :guffaw:

    ^ :rommie: Well, hey, they gave us a title. And there was all that leaked video footage.

    Honestly I was surprised at the lack of all of our picking over the leaked videos. There were potentially months of examination and discussion, (read: "arguing" ;)) over them which we all seemed content not to bother with - much. :shrug:

    I'm definitely going to see it, but I'm a little nervous after watching Lindelof's Prometheus disaster.

    I saw it tomorrow. It was great. :p

    :guffaw:

    We were told - years ago! - that there would be much secrecy and tight security.

    Oh ye of little faith. ;)

    Extremely excited!

    About not only the film, but the 'moichendising, moichendising' as well. Can't wait to see what Hasbro comes up with - let's hope they do it better than Playmates!
