Film Countdown: Star Trek

It’s still not fully clear whether or not next summer’s ‘Star Trek’ by J J Abrams will be a prequel or a reboot (Leonard Nimoy’s appearance complicates matters somewhat), but I’m not that bothered either way. The origin story of the ‘classic’ Trek crew, reimagined and recast carries huge risks and could yet be a huge disaster, but it doesn’t look that way in this trailer. Following on from Casino Royale and Batman Begins, there’s a fresh, new beginning here, and although I don’t know how they’re going to make the classic uniforms and mythos tick (have you noticed how painfully dated even early Next Gen now is?), it looks worth giving a try.

And Chris Pine is hot…

  1. I must say it looks way better than I feared. I think it’s prequel

  2. I am definitely intrigued, and for all JJ Abrams’ faults when it comes to some of his TV shows, he’s certainly got a good range.

    I’m looking forward to it. And yes, I quite agree.
