Anyone else hyped about the new movie? The trailer looks really epic. Can't wait.

8-[ Oh there's a new ST move is there? 8-[
Is it another 'Next Generation' movie or is it something different?

I was already bored with Star Trek when I first heard they were making yet another film, but now the more I hear about & see stills from the new one, the more I want to run away screaming "I never liked Star Trek... I mean I never heard of it! What are you talking about?"

Anyway, it's effectively a reboot of the franchise. Supposed to be young Kirk & crew on their first mission aboard the Enterprise.
Apparently, there's a time-travel thing going on. YAWN AGAIN.
The time travel re-writes the timeline so that now, what we see is the official new timeline, or some such... It completely ignores established continuity by rewriting it. So why not just make up a brand new series? Why try to make this thing look like ST, but different? ST fans have either been going orgasmic over this new 'old' film, or hate it. Both sides have yet to actually see it, of course. Oh, I admit that I fall into the 'hate it' camp, if that isn't obvious. And like I said, I'm rather bored with ST anyway, so my disdain for the new film is more because I think that the whole franchise should give it a rest already. It doesn't need revitalisation, it needs to take a long break.

Anyway, the film...
Looks like a cross between Top Gun (I'm the only American I know who still detests that film. Never liked it, likely never will.) and Star Trek, with a bit of the latest popular young adult TV drama cast with young, beautiful people. I use Beverly Hills 90210, since that's the show that started that whole craze on this side of the pond. In short, I call the new 'old' ST film Top Gun Trek 90210.

I know, I know, don't judge it before I've seen it. I would say the same to those who think it's great without having seen it. (No offence intended to anyone here, by the way! I'm just pointing out that the 'don't judge' sentiment works both ways.) I admit that SFX-wise, it looks cool, but to me, that's not all that special. And sure, it looks action-y, but to me that just makes it feel like a marketing gimmick to sell the eventual video game version. Sorry for this long rant; :a013: I doubt it's been helpful.

Maybe I should just suggest looking up info at startrek.com or some other site.

Oh, but don't look at what they did to the Enterprise. :a103: Don't say I didn't warn you...

It's a prequal. New actors playing Kirk and Spock and all the old crew etc. They join Star Fleet and go on the first mission in the Enterprise.
Silar from Heroes playing Spock and the guy from Simon Pegg playing Scotty.
