New Star Trek TV Spot Gives Us Our Day of Reckoning


Back in November, I braved the cold to head to New York City for the chance to see some footage from J.J. Abram’s Star Trek, and I was blown away. I freely admit to being completely uninitiated into the Trek universe. I understand that there was some trouble with Tribbles, but other than that, I would have difficulty switching my phaser to stun. Still, the film looks like it will hold up quite nicely as a pure action flick with a huge CGI budget that looks like it’s money being well spent.

Now, there’s a new TV spot for the film that showcases a few more action sequences in what I have to assume is the teaser. Hopefully, the full-length trailer will be a few weeks away.

Feel free to argue the physics:

I’m completely positive about this movie so far, but I would like to point something out. As an outside, I’ve noticed that Kirk appears to be on the ice planet Hoth near the beginning and that the enemy has created some sort of giant weapon that destroys planets. That’s all I’m going to say.

I think it’s safe to say that everyone is looking forward to this own blowing up the summer. I, for one, will be at the midnight screening dressed as Dumbledore.

What do you think? How hard would it be to get into the military of the future? Base jumping from outer space onto a moving platform? It would take way more than the G.I. Bill to get me out there.
