    Not sure how I feel about the new trailer. The tone feels off, and I'm not sure that the music fits at all. And am I the only one who can't understand what Kirk is saying in the very first line of the trailer (feels like bad, choppy editing): "My dad joined Starfleet because he blamed ???"

    I was skeptical at first, but after seeing the trailer, I was really impressed. It's hard to believe the trailer was less than two minutes long, there was so much packed in there. It's really got me pumped in a way the other two trailers (esp the first one) didn't.

    Trailer looks alright. It's the same stuff we've seen before, with maybe a couple new things. I'm somewhat indifferent to the Abramsverse movies, but I'm cautiously optimistic that this will be at least entertaining Star Trek and not the action-packed motorcycle movie that so many people are worried it'll be.

    The Rihanna song is great. Kind of haunting; oddly perfect.

    It's better than the ENT theme song. :biggrin:

    I don't like the song. It starts great, atmospheric and suitable to the visuals, but when you think the song ought to transition into a big chorus, it doesn't, it just gets really repetitive. But apparently this singer is quite popular? ;) I imagine this trailer would be quite impressive in the cinema.

    Look at the trailers now, you get a sense of the overall campaign (overlooking the TV spots etc for the sake of the argument):

    Trailer 1 used Sabotage and was specifically meant to bring back fans of the previous two movies by reproducing that JJ energy.
    Trailer 2 was the traditional-style trailer, to appeal to old-time Trek fans and science fiction fans in general.
    Trailer 3 uses Rihanna and is meant to open out the campaign to the general movie-going audience, i.e. people who don't have a specific interest in Trek and sci-fi. To put it crudely, it's stuff sploding for the guys, and Rihanna and feels for the girls. I did find it a bit odd that Uhura wasn't more featured in this last trailer, but perhaps they thought her on the screen combined with Rihanna on the soundtrack might make it seem too much of a chick flick.

    This promises to be one of the most visually spectacular Trek movies ever. The shots of Yorktown Station (very Mass Effect Citadel meets Nemoidia from Star Wars), the Enterprise deflector torn to shreds, the saucer crashing, and the Franklin igniting the swarm are all amazing.

    The song was great too.

    I thought it was an epic and spectacular trailer. Kirk's gravitas as he says "This is my last report as captain of the Starship Enterprise", with the amazing shot of the shredded saucer falling away, sent chills up my spine. The shot of Kirk and Chekov looking down the valley at the saucer crash is stunningly beautiful. And the Franklin surrounded by fire... just wow.

    I liked the music. It sort of fits and adds a bit of epicness to the trailer.

    I've been optimistic about this movie ever since it was announced that Orci and his bobos were out, that Pegg and Jung were writing it, and this trailer just solidified that I'll be there on opening day (although I really love the alternate universe Enterprise, so seeing it get wrecked will suck).

    Is it just me or did this music feel like it would fit better with a Bond film?

    Might be the fans they are trying to reach.

    I think the song is wrapped around the trailer awkwardly. But I'm not opposed to her doing the score. This is the first trailer that is otherwise well executed.

    She didn't. This song is hers, the score was done by Michael Giacchino.

    That because the Franklin flew into a star,came back out, pulling flams behind her. Then wait to warp, costing a solar flare to follow them all the way to their target.
