There’s a little movie opening up soon that you may have heard of, J.J. Abrams’ reboot of Star Trek. Sci Fi Wire has a short ‘behind the scenes’ vignette with some of the cast and crew, along with a little new footage, in this short clip. And this movie will ‘blow you away!’, at least according to the cast.
I’m still skeptical. I’ll say this for Abrams, the movie looks really good and I especially like the ‘orbital diving’ scene. But the reservations are still there: Chris Pine doesn’t look like Kirk and while the trailers show plenty of action, Star Trek isn’t necessarily about that. As a result, the trailers don’t feel like Star Trek.
I’ll still go see this in the theater though, damn you J.J. Abrams.
