Can't be viewed in the United States of America.
Yeah? Now you know how the rest of the world feels. IN YOUR FACE.
How about this link?
Yea, that has viewable videos for the first world.
The trailer didn't show too much, but it did look like a lot of Earth scenes. I hope the crew gets to boldy go somewhere. And Klingons, did I miss them, or were they not there? I need Klingons.
Benedict Cumbersnatch is rumoured to be playing Khan. I caught a glimpse of him in the trailer but it looks like he's wearing a federation uniform.
There's a deleted scene on the DVD for the first movie that features Klingons. Enjoy!
Synopsis on website says rogue federation commander.....
Looked great to me. I'm in!
That's a teaser trailer alright. I enjoyed the previous one but I haven't got much to go on for this.
The Japanese trailer has an extra scene right at the end and... Well, hopefully Spock starts calling Kirk "Jim" in this one.
That was debunked a while ago, Khan isn't the villain in this. From all reports -
So water world, lava world, falling out of the sky world, they crash the Enterprise again, and Spock dies in the radiation chamber. Got it.
Instead of Khan another theory is that the antagonist is Gary Mitchell.
Lum has Nute on ignore. Harsh.
true fact: as forum admin I can't ignore anyone.
you can imagine the pain
I've watched enough Sci-Fi to know that Earth is the only planet with multiple biomes. That's why all the aliens want to live here.
Can we ignore you? Not advocating, just curious.
Can we ignore who?
Ah, I was basing that on the entry in IMDB.
Nope. You can't ignore me either.
I imagine this is
Lum right now:
Will someone please answer my question about ignoring Lum and Elyscape?
I was thinking about setting everyone on ignore except Ely so I can see him talking gibberish to himself.
I guess that really wouldn't be much different, actually.
I have a bad feeling about this movie.
Star Trek (the reboot) was a bit of a fluke, carried mostly by an enthusiastic cast and fast-paced action that left little time to ask questions like, "Why does engineering look like a brewery?" (Answer: Because it is a brewery.) I don't have much faith that J.J. Abrams can produce a good story so Into Darkness is probably going to have to rely mainly on the cast carrying it again. That means it probably won't be outright bad or anything, so there's that. And there's bound to be less lens flare.
There's one really short scene that shows Cumberbatch doing some pretty crazy stuff. He jumps 20 feet into the air carrying some giant cannon-rifle, shoots two people with perfect accuracy with a pistol, and then bashes some other dude around with his cannon as he lands before turning it on Kirk. Seems a little super-soldiery to me.
This scream scene bugs the everloving crap out of me. That's really all I have to say about it.
Maybe they're going to mash Mitchell and Khan into one character? Mhan? Khitchell?
Yeah, totally awkward-looking.
But kinda sexy.
I'm happy for people that like this rebooted Trek and I guess I'm glad they can make money off it but they're changing it to the point where it's starting to look like Star Trek in name only.
Well the plot can't be any worse than the first film, so that's a plus.
Since the name defines what it is - the problem is...?
I can't agree with that. If you created a Star Wars film about how Darth Vader went and found planet earth and then it turned out that President Obama was a Jedi...that would not be Star Wars.
It might be better than SW:TPM but it wouldn't *be* Star Wars it would be a joke.
If I did it, no. Because I don't get to decide what constitutes Star Wars.
If whoever actually does get to decide that - being the people who make the movies - then yes it would be.
You should check out a book called "Naming and Necessity" by Saul Kripke. I think you have a pretty simplistic take on this kind of question that the book would help refine.
What's the problem that you have with the first film?
The first Star Trek reboot? Or SW:Phantom Menace?
Because if #1 then it's that I didn't like the new timeline thing and the villain.
If #2 then come on...it blew.
God no, number one. Everyone knows that TPM was mostly awful. Explain the timeline thing to me, I'm not sure what you mean.
Uhm, they kinda blew up Vulcan?
