    Now like 2.5 days for me. Just watched the trailer again.

    Plus on the weekend, I'm gonna be part of the local branch of Starfleet at a cinema in Sydney. Getting very excited. Soon, I'll try and get some sleep.

    Getting closer. I hope the opening weekend brings in hoards of cash. Good Lord, did you see how much Iron Man 3 brought in?? Crazy.

    Actually you could have said it's 10 1/2 days because the US is having Thursday evening preview shows starting around 7:30 p.m. My friend Michelle and I are in fact seeing a 7:30 3D showing (not IMAX, but on a large format screen - Cinemark's "XD") on the 16th. Which means 10 days from this very moment, we'll be watching it. :cool:

    I'm soooo jealous King Daniel! I hope you have a great time!

    Will we all be moving over to the "movie grading thread" once all of us see it, or we do a little discussion here as well?

    Now it's down to 23 hours until I see it. I know there are midnight screenings tonight, but not where I am.

    You may want to update the US countdown, as they've pushed the release date to the 16th. I'll be able to see it as a midnight showing at 12:03am on the 16th!

    ^Yeah, I saw that late last night. They're doing it especially to ruin the end of my countdown!

    US/Canada general release (May 17):[highlight] -8[/highlight]
    US IMAX/3D (May 15): [highlight]-7[/highlight]
    UK, Ireland and Australia (May 9): [HIGHLIGHT]-1[/HIGHLIGHT]

    Thanks!:)
    I think once we see it we can talk about it here, but be sure to use spoiler tags on spoilery stuff for those who haven't yet.

    ^ I know that first screening in Australia is just over 4 hours away from now.

    I'm trying to some study, as I wait tonight. Maybe few more hours and then sleep. Tomorrow is about Trek.

    ^I've been completely Trek mad for the past few days. I won't know what to do once I've seen it. Except maybe see it again!


    And now, to celebrate the final day... here's an exclusive extended trailer clip!*

    ^ I've watched the movie again. Now it's sleep. Hopefully I'll get a good sleep tonight. Thinking what to wear to the cinemas tomorrow. Plus almost finished season 1 of the original. And going in costume on Saturday.

    Argh, WHY ARE THEY MAKING ME WAIT??

    Don't get me wrong. Being Canadian is great. Just ask Ensign Lavelle. But still... THE WAIT, IT IS KILLING ME. RAR.

    I'm watching it in 12 hours. Twelve long hours - it feels like I'm a kid on Christmas Eve. Have a great time, teacake and ElimParra! I hope it's as good as we all want it to be.:)
