I'll definitely watch it. But really I wish they'd go back to the 60's space-age look and the cheesy special effects. It's part of the charm of Star Trek.

The Japanese version of the trailer has an extra 12 seconds of footage at the end - very reminiscent of Khan...

Well naturally they have to reboot the best Star Trek film ever made. If people keep buying tickets Hollywood will keep rebooting them all.

It's probably not a reboot of Wrath of Kahn. More likely it is a reinterpretation of the episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before," set in this new timeline. Here's an analysis: http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/06/to-boldly-speculate-star-trek-into-darkness-trailer

 

I think that last shot of the Japanese trailer is more likely an homage to Wrath of Kahn, but there's no way they're killing off Spock already in the new timeline.

From the comment section on YouTube:

 

"Everyone that complains "this isn't real Star Trek," I am coming to your house to tie you up and make you watch Star Trek: The Motion Picture over and over until you scream for mercy. Then I'm making you watch Star Trek V: The Final Frontier until your brain begins melting. Then I'm making you watch that episode of TNG where Picard sits on a rock and shames the poopy tar alien that ate Tasha Yar.

Real Trek is what you make of it. I just hope this is a good story told well."

 

So true.

?????? and ?

 

Masks was way worse than Skin fo Evil. However that author was right about V GER. V GER was the worst Trek ever.

 

 

Edit: He is also right about Final Frontier.

To my mind these movies like the Vger thing and the other crummy movies (with a couple exceptions) with the original cast were NOT really Star Trek. You cannot bring back the 60s. You cannot bring back the original Star Trek, the same way you cannot bring back Dark Shadows. It was a product of its times.

 

Star Trek the Next Generation was successful, because of the characters, which were not the original characters or really based upon any of them.

 

Today, how do you young people view the 60s show who were not around when it came out?

 

That being said, even though this new movie is not the original, I will watch it. It is probably pretty good entertainment.

I like it, though I've only seen about a dozen episodes. But since I didn't grow up in the sixties and watch when it first aired, I sometimes feel like I'm missing something that's keeping me from understanding Star Trek as the original fans did. But I don't think any of that keeps from enjoying it. Regarding the new movie, it seems interesting and I would like to see it once I've seen more TOS and at least a few of the original movies, as well as the more recent one, which I have not seen.

Say what you want, but that guy fuckin' NAILED Khan's personality and voice. I never thought they'd ever find a young actor who could do that. I'll pay money to watch this movie just because I am suddenly completely crushing on Benewhozit Cumberthingie.

I'm crushing on Benedict Cumberbach. And I'm a straight male. Okay, so I could probably never bring myself to make out or have sex with him, but I'd try to date him.

Someone's got the hots for Benedict Cumberbatch, eh?

 

So guess who's also voicing Smaug the Fire-Golden and the Necromancer (aka, Sauron, the Dark Lord)...?

I'm definitely looking forward to this movie. The 2009 Star Trek was the first movie my wife and I saw together at the theater.

 

She's always been a huge Trek fan and likes The Next Generation best. I really enjoyed the Enterprise series with Scott Bakula as Kirk's predecessor.

 

I'm not sure how much Star Trek Into Darkness will reflect a Wrath of Khan scenario, but the Wrath of Khan was a fantastic breath of fresh air after that insomnia-curing Star Trek the Motion picture movie. I remember being bored and wanting to go to sleep when I saw that in the theater as a child.

I love Enterprise! I still have a bunch of eps on VHS. Too bad I no longer have a VCR that can play the cassettes. Speaking of old ST, EdwardRHamilton has a bunch of old SciFi movies on sale right now, btw. Mostly it's old Battlestar Galactica, new BG, and Caprica stuff, but if you have an old affection for Tekwars, you're in business. 3rd Rock from the Sun, too, which is one of my favorite series.

 

I just got done watching "Sherlock" on Netflix and am completely desolate because Season 3 doesn't exist yet apparently. FUCKERS. See, this is why I generally don't get into a series till it's long over. How dare they cliffhanger me like that? FUCKERS TWICE. Benedict is now one of my favorite actors. Ever. The blond guy playing Watson rocks too, but BENEDICT. At least I'll get my fix when the Khan thingie comes out.

I really don't see any need for them to reboot either Khan or Mitchell.  Now that Abrams brilliantly rebooted the franchise, I hope he doesn't feel the need to resurrect the previous Star Trek Universe.

I can't speak for them, but the Original Series was at once a product of its times and timeless.  In 2012 the details may seem dated, we may have made some progress and face other different problems or different bigots, but underlying messages on civil rights, war, religion, racial and gender equality, and that a better world is ours to build are still relevant.

Despite what I said earlier, I will judge the new movie on its merits alone, as I did the Dark Shadows movie with Johnnie Depp.  There is no way it can be the original series. 

 

That said, no one beats James T. Kirk!

I must have slept through the original Dark Shadows, but I thought the movie was good.  Hard to imagine Johnny Depp making a bad movie.

I still have a Dark Shadows book from the 60s. I'm a bit young for either the DS show or TS:TOS, but I didn't like either of them much. I grew to like TS:TOS eventually but Dark Shadows has just never managed to grab me.

JJ Abrams Grants Fan’s Dying Wish To See Star Trek Into Darkness

 

Director JJ Abrams has granted a fan’s dying wish to see Star Trek Into Darkness before he makes the final voyage into the undiscovered country.

 

On Christmas day Reddit user ideeeyut, aka Grady Hendrix, posted a plea on behalf of his friend Dan, 41, who is suffering from two kinds of cancer. Dan desperately wanted to see Star Trek Into Darkness, and, knowing that he has “weeks to live,” bought a ticket to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey just to catch the 10 minutes of Trek footage that was being shown alongside the Jackson film, but was hospitalized on the day of the screening, and so missed his chance.

 

The story swiftly reached Abrams and Paramount , resulting in a private screening of a rough cut of Into Darkness for Dan and his wife, which happened on Sunday.

 

Paramount and Bad Robot – to their credit – haven’t made a big thing about the screening, but Dan’s wife sent the following message to TrekMovie.com (click on the link for the full message):

 

 

“Hi everyone, it’s Daniel’s wife. We are of course sworn to secrecy, but we are officially allowed to say we saw it and we enjoyed it immensely as a film and as a gesture… However; Daniel ‘hates’ being an ‘inspiring cancer story’ we his friends and loved ones would prefer for the update to have more of a heartfelt message of giving, especially during this season

 

“This is a story of us giving something to him, the ‘internet’ community giving something to him and ultimately being a heartwarming gift to our friends, family and so many others. This story of us (and of course JJ Abrams & Bad Robot) being able to give this surprise gift of a screening to a huge movie buff like Daniel, especially a film made by a film maker who obviously makes movies with such care, with a fan like Daniel in mind (and a person like me who knows slightly less about these things). Also, it was truly amazing that a film-maker so secretive as JJ Abrams was kind enough to show this to us.

 

“It is also so wonderful for his friends & his family to finally hear some good news from us, They know how important film is to Daniel & could not think of a better way to please to him. So this gesture really has brought a lot of smiles all around.

 

“Be assured we enjoyed it 110%! We are so grateful thank you, thank you, thank you…”

 

Now that’s what we call a heartwarming Christmas story.
