  • I just pooped a little. In my pants. I can't wait for Star Trek!!!! AHHHH!!!!
  • Farris
    That looks so incredible. I can't wait.
  • this movie shows just how important is is to NOT go fanboy all the time with franchises. new concepts, ideas and etc usually exist outside the inner circle. can't wait for this movie.
  • ImaginaryVisionary
    Ewww....I think this trailer is going to piss off the fanboys. It looks cool to me, but for a person who loves the TV show I think this trailer is going to be a big turn off. "It looks nothing like Star Trek, too young, too slick" I can almost hear them now.
  • !!!!
    woow...... well um... I never have seen star trek and do not ever want to see the old ones.... this looks good though... and seriously wtf to trekies...... those guys are not losers at all.... sorry though... just kinda sad...
  • MBD
    #2 "This looks so ridiculous. A bunch of explosions and aircraft carriers, WOW!!!!" That's a direct quote by you in the Transformers post. How is this ANY different?
  • Zach
    well, for one thing, this movie wasn't based on a toy.
  • JimD
    Looks good. I will enjoy this more then transformers.
  • This ain't your daddy's Star Trek. The new 'old' gang isn't afraid of drinkin', wenchin', kicking ass and blowing the hell out of the enemy. I'm a fan of the older franchise, but this... THIS... is MY Star Trek. Bring it!
  • JS Chan
    to #4, what kind of star trek r u lookin for, old crappy special effects from back in the day?? It doesnt look like star trek?? Do u want William Shattner back in the picture or somthing?? if u say yes thats just sad.
  • Wottock Hunt
    I'm now slightly less excited about this film. It looks nothing like Star Trek, too young, too slick.
  • Tim "Cloverfield"
  • looks good
  • Darunia
    Doesn't have shit on transformers 2 and G.I joe trailers.
  • NeoSlyfer
  • HOLY SHIT. I may be more excited about this than TRANSFORMERS 2.
  • Bender
    I agree with #11. Also what worries me is that we don't have a chance to have longer franchise with it. 2-3 movies tops. I don't see that cast willing to do a regular tv show or something. So what... another franchise relaunch in next 5 years? Not really a fan of this idea.
  • suresh
    This looks great... looks better than Transformers -2..
  • Al
    agree with 11 and 17. The big budget look and feel of it is totally not Star Trek.
  • Actually glad some of the wistful ultra-fans don't want to see this movie. Star Trek is dead. Gone. Finished. I want them to resurrect the franchise, even if it is only for "2-3 movies tops". Good grief, 2-3 movies is a heckuva lot bettter than NO movies! Which is exactly what the old franchise will be putting out. Nothing. See the second sentence above. Have a memorial party for the old crew, and welcome in the kick ass new crew. I want Kirk as he was meant to be. A womanizing, shoot-from-the-hip, empathic individual with amazing tactical skills. Kick ass, Kirk!
  • deltavoyage
    I seriously cannot wait for this movie. This is my most anticipated movie of 2009. All of the reboots of old franchises (Battlestar Galactica, Batman, James Bond) have been absolutely amazing, and it looks like this movie is poised to do the same thing for Star Trek. I'll be there on May 8, 2009!
  • Andy
    #1 on my "movies i m excited for list"
  • RandyG
    #11: I agree, too young and estrogenized. Besides, JJ Abrams' record is mostly drivel.
  • Fisherr
    #11 I think we'll have to wait and see it looks good to me.
  • Ian
    I wasn't that sold on this movie when I saw the first trailer and I am pretty much less sold now. Thinkin' about it the other day, I would not like to be the kid playing Kirk for all the whiskey in Ireland. I mean think about it: for the last 43 years, when you think Captain James T. Kirk you think William Shatner. I mean that's a hell of a thing to live up to.
  • LRS
    HUGE Trekkie here...I am sooo excited about this!!!
  • dan
    when i first heard they were going back to the beginning with everyone being young, i didn't think it would work. but, now i'm starting to get excited about it. the action looks great. i'm interested in what info we get on the crewmembers as they come together to helm the enterprise.
  • N
    #20 is absolutely correct. I loved the old star trek. Loved TNG. But they're done. They won't be putting anything out, they're finished. Time for a revamp, bring some energy, a good cast, a solid plot, and some of the incredible CGI we're capable of now, and it looks like they've done a damn fine job.
  • avoidz
    Star Trek: The Ritalin Generation.
  • Frame
    When I think about Star Trek this is what comes to mind... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1eFdUSnaQM ...so screw the fanboys. Abrams' got chops and this won't be some Star Wars Episode I throwaway shit. Just because it's flashy doesn't mean it'll necessarily lack substance... goodness knows Star Trek's image needed some style anyway. I've definitely got this thing listed higher than both Transformers 2 and G.I. Joe and I'm not even a Star Trek fan... Oh yeah, go Pittsburgh.
  • feohatestheworld
    Yes! Something Feo really HATES!
  • T
    I really do not understand the star trek true die hard fans. It is FICTIONAL PEOPLE get over it. I have been a star trek fan for a long long time, and every single movie that has come to the theater I have embraced, I accepted it for what it was...a movie with characters and a starship. So the Enterprise has been a bit redisgned. How do we not know if this would of been a design that Gene himself would not have embraced and said...damn! thats what I was looking for in way way way back when the series first started? What was his name Berman...Hmmmmm I think it was drove star trek into the ground with boring story lines with TNG, DS9 and Enterprise. I think that Paramount has done the right thing by breathing new life and new imagination into the franchise may just be what Star Trek needs to get a relaunch of more movies more tv series. I am patiently waiting and will enjoy no matter what the final outcome. Because if Paramount does not get the result it is seeking then this could surely mean the demise of the entire franchise....
  • L
    Im not a huge fan of the Star Trek Series. I hardly ever watched the Original series, NGE was pretty good, Voyager was decent, but the ret and be buried. However, I have always liked the movies and this one looks just as amazing.
  • Lazarus
    J.J. Abrams will have done what most in the inner circles of the Paramount offices who worked on every Star Trek show after our great Gene....Capture lightning in a bottle for the franchise. Most have done well after Gene's passing. Even "Enterprise" started to get it....but a director looking at this bottled ship (which trekkies & trekkers have made it into a priceless diamond) from the outside...really gets it. It was always the characters that made the show strong...not the cool ships...the characters living in a fantastical world...having incredible adventures...Thats Star Trek...Theres no matrix to hunt you down , or an evil lord looking for a ring, or a farm boy deciding to follow into his fathers shadow... Star Trek...men & women...living in space, having wild dangerous fun...with ray guns, cool ships, very evil aliens and going...where no man...no one has gone before...This movie will let me dream big again...and thats all movies should do...great characters in great adventures....
  • Tim "Cloverfield"
    Good job LAZ!
  • I am so not a Trekkie or Trekker and have never been one...but this looks pretty damn good!
  • neonblue
    so many movies, so little time
  • Diego Doyle
    Hard to tell if I like it, 'cause this little ad is chirping at me so incessantly. But on the upside I'm a "WINNER".
  • A.B
    fuck yea!!! J.J Abrams your the man. this looks AM-A-ZING!!!! this is wat i've been wait for.
  • bourneidentity
    This looks like it has Phantom Menace written all over it. I'll pass.
  • Dan Walimaa
    By the looks of this, and the Transformers 2 clip, so far it looks like Summer 2009 is going to be a great time at the movies!
  • Tim "Cloverfield"
    Bullshit # 23 Drivel??? I take offense to that. Ok, so I agree I am not a Lost fan ( which we ALL know is based on one X-Files episode)....but Drivel ? A little harsh don't you think? And Jason # 20, Kirk had to start somewhere, give it a chance.
  • miracle disease
    Definitely I watch this one... even though every time I watch a trailer for this movie my mind is struggling not to think about Starwars... good thing I'm a Starwars fan so I guess this movie could be a good thing for me
  • RandyG
    #42: Yeah, drivel may be a bit vague. But what else would you call Armageddon, Regarding Henry, Felicity (c'mon!) and the outright insulting Lost? Cloverfield was so bad we left and got our money back (even the manager agreed it was an awful film). Okay, some people like Alias (but for me life is too short to waste time on a one year soap opera that is manipulated to reach the 100 episode target for syndication, which applies equally to Lost). Even considering the decent MI3 and Joyride, Abrams work is characterized mostly by the contempt in which he seems to hold his audience. Which predicts Star Trek is his next laugh all the way to the bank.
  • Suetonius
    Looking at this trailer and those of the other action-adventure-scifi flicks coming this summer has to give studio execs some heart for a respite from the current economic downturn. Transformers, GI Joe, Pixar and Star Trek are brands that will draw audiences, even if only one week. I would not be surprised if releases were spaced out a bit during the summer, as some of these are bound to be one-week wonders. As for the Star Trek prequel, I will pretty much seen anything with Simon Pegg. He is hilarious!

  • Tim (#42). You didn't read my comments, apparently. I'm giving the new Star Trek movie a chance. In fact, I'm ENCOURAGING the new movie. If you read my complete post, I was explaining to the ultra-fanboys why they SHOULD give the new crew a chance. As of right now, Star Trek is dead. Hopefully this new movie resurrects the franchise. I hope so! If it bombs in the boxoffice, I doubt we'll see another Star Trek movie for quite a few years. :(
  • feohatestheworld
    #44 Cloverfield was nothing but BRILLIANT!!!!!! I don't like Lost just because of the X-FIles rip off earlier mentioned. God your wrong. BAD ROBOT! and SLUSHO!
  • Tim "Cloverfield"
    Jason (47) I am sorry, mis-represented your comment in my post. Totally giving it a chance. YOur correct with ST being dead, and this film should help the old, along with some new fans. Lost is not my fave rave, but I also agree with #48. I loved Cloverfield.....still do.
  • Fritz Blaze
    As a fan of the Original Series, I think this movie will kick major butt! The show from the 1960s was as action-packed as possible for what was possible at the time. I like this reimagining. I think the franchise is very much alive, thanks to JJ and his vision. So, yeah, as a fanboy, I'll be there opening day.
  • thasaltshaker
    wow, I'm a huge JJ Abrams fan. THis movie looks right up his alley. As for Star Trek and alot of people hating it without ever actually seeing it, I really don't understand it. It amazes me, and for the record... the similarities of Star Wars and Star trek are there... you would think there would be more acceptance. Anyway, I saw Generations and First Contact back in the day and I thought they were both great.
  • Silver
    I like it. One of my most anticipated of this year. BTW powerful picture at the top
  • Joe
    The Star Trek universe has grown exponentially since the first episode. There are literally millions of stories to be told and the best they can come up with is to retell a story about how Kirk and crew met. This is embarassing. They took a risk with Voyager and her brand new crew. It paid off big time. Does Abrams not have the guts to do the same with the movie?
  • The Star Trek universe may have grown exponentially... but it's viewer base has remained stagnant. Hence, Enterprise was booted off the air. In reality, that show should have been tossed after the third season with it's absolutely horrible raitings. But Paramount hung in there hoping the fan base would grow. It didn't. It shrank. Does Abrams not have the guts? He's the director, using what he can. He's not the issue. It's Paramount that's the issue. Voyager sucked in ratings the last two years, the series finale was a collosal disappointment. Enterprise just tanked after the first season. For Paramount to even THINK of putting more money into Star Trek they have to be damn sure it's going to pay off. I think the new movie will surpass even Paramount's expectations, draw in new fans, and help update the antiquated effects/storytelling of Star Trek. I mean, really... Sticking to Gene's ABC storytelling for television is completely outdated. (You MUSt have a main 'A' story arc, with a 'B' minor plot, with a 'C' throw away... with minute counts for each arc. BLECH!). It totally limits the writers with what they can do, and what they can accomplish per episode. Just watch Battlestar Galactica and you'll see a major difference in story arcing. Gene's Star Trek Bible HAS to be updated and revamped. Unfotunately Rick Berman didn't have the gonads to do so. Buh-bye Rick (and all the money Paramount lost with him). Hello J.J. Let's hope new fans are born, and the action/adventure of Star Trek takes off in the 21st century. If not, we're left with novels and that's it.
  • rossi
    i agree with #14 so f..k u hating cowards
  • vegasdanny
    Well im sorry to say im not a fan of StarTrek at all.....but this has just turned my head big time! Lets face it JJ has the talent and ideas to make this fresh and exciting and for once Star Trek looks like it has a pulse and the franchise will rise again!! Bring on the summer!
