Is this supposed to just be for this movie? Or the entire ST universe?

Also, you made me think there was a new trailer! Booooo.

New trailer.


I was actually liking the beginning. Some decent dialogue there. Then the plot....or whatever....kicked in and I lost interest. Sad, for about 20 seconds I was really into it.

I agree. It certainly started off a lot better than the previous trailer, but once it got to the aliens, it still looked like generic spacey action movie again. I see nothing compelling or fresh about the aliens in the movie, no indication of plot given either. And either the Enterprise gets destroyed, or it gets so ridiculously close to it that it's going to look Beyond stupid to have it magically fixed yet again. Modern trailers give away too much.
The dialogue at the start was nice, but it seemed hollow without the rest of the trailer indicating a payoff.

On the plus side, it didn't make me think less of the movie, but I doubt that would have been possible anyway. :P

The best I can gather is....bad guy has grudge against Kirk or Federation (likely the latter) and destroys the boat and takes everyone (and lots of others) prisoner on his....prison planet. They fight back and escape and stuff. Meh. I dunno, I'm guessing you could boil down the other good movies into similarly silly sounding plots, but at least those had characters I really cared about. While I actually like Pine and Urban in these movies, I don't much care for anyone else.

Anyway, I don't feel like getting into it with Kotow or bring too much negativity. Those are my reactions. I'll bow out now and stick to the general thread unless something gets released.

Watched it a couple of times now.

Much better than the first trailer of course. And I think it looks great.

Doesn't look as bad as i first thought...

I'm not expecting this to be the next Wrath of Khan or Undiscovered Country, but it at least looks like a fun movie.

I'm gonna go see it with an open mind!

They already tried that.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Three ? How was 2009 like Wrath of Khan bar the one tiny scene where Nero puts a bug in Pike to make him spill the beans ?



Nemesis was like a blatant Wrath of Khan remake. It stole way more from TWOK than Into Darkness did.

Back to the trailer and I *love* any shot with the USS Franklin flying around. I like the new trailer more each time I watch it.

I thought the first trailer gave that away pretty clearly. Moreover, aren't there scenes with it smashed up on the ground?

Yes. You see a scene where Kirk and *someone* - maybe Chekov jump out of the viewscreen and are sliding down the saucer.


Justin Lin is a massive Trekkie - i'm expecting there to not only be a new Enterprise at the end BUT one closer in design to the Motion Picture Enterprise.

Yeah, there are. I really wasn't paying much attention at first, but watching it again, it's painfully clear. It's like they have to cram every explosion and stunt into the trailer to make people watch it, never mind giving away key points. People apparently don't watch movies for plot anyway these days anyway.

You're right. Let's spend $150m on a movie and only show the shots of people talking. That'll make us our money back LICKETY SPLIT.

Given that the first trailer was universally panned for being nothing but explosions and bike stunts, it couldn't hurt. :biggrin:
But of course it must be entirely one or the other! It's not like they could show a balance of elements to appeal to every cross section of audience or anything, and show some depth as well as fun. And perish the thought of holding back a single explosion! Don't allow the audience any surprises such as destroying the flagship of Starfleet!

I'm with you as far as giving everything away in the trailer but the people involved in the film aren't always calling the shots on the trailers.

But for me - I don't really care about spoilers. I don't find they dilute my enjoyment of the whole film on the big screen.

Me too. I think it looks like a lot of fun and i'm not naive enough to think they're making this for anything other than big bucks and to appeal to a mass audience.

The difference is that I don't care and I enjoy fun sci fi action films on the big screen.

I feel the same. Most of the best films they've made have been action films. 

I hope to get the writing and the storyline from the TV series.

Sooo... The shot in the trailer where Bones, Kirk & Spock are staring into the distance and Bones says " You really wanna head back out there ? "

..seen someone say online that it could be them staring at their brand new Enterprise at the end of the film. :)

No burning fuming hatred. I mean, it looks pretty bad, but mostly it doesn't make me feel anything at all. In fact, my only negative feelings toward the whole (new) franchise is that it's called Star Trek. If you redesign the stuff, give em different names and call it "Space Fighters" or whatever, I would simply ignore it. There's lots of terrible sci fi/action movies out there, this just one just happened to attach a name of my favorite franchise to it. Change that and I wouldn't feel anything at all toward it.

That was the least offensive clip I've seen yet.

After watching some of the fan-made stuff, I realize that my problem isn't that they're making Transformers movies. People like popcorn flicks and so be it. It's that they're not making ST with that great cast they have. I'm just annoyed at the loss of opportunity given the potential they have to work with. It's a damn shame.

Pretty inoffensive clip. I don't know why they'd choose that clip to advertise the movie. Is it the only consecutive minute of footage without an explosion? It definitively wasn't anything to get excited about regardless of how starved the fanbase is. Again, not really holding back on spoiling the destruction of the Enterprise.

I said "I bet they can't go a full minute without explosions", and they thought "oh yeah? We'll show him!" Then after a couple of weeks of creative editing, they made it happen.
