I have a feeling many will point to the films themselves as something they had the most fun with, but I had a very different experience so I'll just lay that out first. It was seeing the first trailer with actual footage. I was in theaters for QUANTUM OF SOLACE and as usual I show up on time for the trailers. By that point, I had no idea what nuTrek would be like because it was so well hidden under wraps that I was completely unaware that a new trailer was gonna come out. So, the first thing in this new trailer is that a Justin Bieber lookalike is driving a car down a precipice. It looked like another dumb/nonsensical action film that I wasn't going to pay much attention to. Wait, what the heck is that RoboCop? Okay. "What is your name?" "My name is James Tiberius Kirk!' My fucking jaw dropped. Wow, that came out of nowhere, and so a bunch of new images start playing out with Kirk seeing the Enterprise. I'm seeing footage of the new Star Trek, and I had no idea it was gonna happen a few seconds ago. It just hit me like a train out of hell. Everything about it looked new and exciting. I wasn't sure what to really think. On one hand, the trailer made it look like any other action summer spectacle, yet at the same time it's the brand new Star Trek. Most of the time I'll catch trailers or at least read about upcoming ones online. That's pretty much how that works these days, where you see a trailer online before anywhere else. So this was a very nice surprise for me, almost makes me wish I wouldn't be so compulsive over seeing a movie trailer and just wait to see it in theaters. A recent example is the Captain America 2 trailer. Kinda wish I had just waited to see that on the screening for THOR 2. It wouldn't have been too long, and it would have been pretty exciting to see that unravel on the big screen. Today is pretty different from 1998 where everyone showed up at a screening of a film nobody cared to stay around for just so they could see THE PHANTOM MENACE, now you can just catch that online unless the studio intentionally waits until the weekend is over. So that's the most fun and excitement I ever had with these films. I look back fondly to that moment, even though I may not care much for the actual films. Maybe when Trek XIII's trailer is released I'll just wait to see in theaters, assuming there's a good film out there at that time.
