ST13-PosterWe weren’t expecting much from Star Trek Into Darkness..

 

No we didn’t like J J Abrams first Star Trek movie…but Into Darkness..

Not too shabby.

First off..

KLINGONS!!

Yes we get a new era of Klingons in this pic (include super-cool new headgear).

We get Klingon speaking Uhura and Klingons speaking Klingon on Kronos itself.

No classic era Birds of Prey, but a sleek new type of scout ship that looks really cool.

OK next up.

KHAN.

No we didn’t expect to see him either, John Harrison is Khan – who knew? No this isn’t a Ricardo Montoblan Khan, but still a devious Mofo and an excellent villain.

The line by line recitation in this movie from Star Trek II Wrath of Khan – inverted with Kirk getting irradiated and Spock getting the call from Scotty that he needs to come down to Engineering right away…WAS SHEER BRILLIANCE.

Spock screaming out Khan!!! was neat, though a bit mis-placed. In Wrath of Khan, Kirk yells out Khan when he is trapped on the planet beneath Regulla One.

TRIBLES.

Another amazeballs twist, J J went all out to give classic fans things to love. Tribles saved by Khan blood save Kirk.

Overall a fun movie, not a pure classic like Wrath of Khan was/is but vastly better than the first J J Abrams Trek and absolutely an entertaining move that we are likely to see more than once.

Star Trek Into Darkness Official New Look Trailer – Not an April Fools Joke? (but we wish it were) April 1, 2013

ST13-PosterNo, we haven’t been terribly excited by what we seen so far for the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness movie.

We’ve got the former Starfleet officer gone rogue and overtones of a Khan like nemesis.

We’ve got the Starship Enterprise NCC-1701 falling from the skies (again) to crash into the San Francisco area (how many times do we need to see this good ship crash?)

We have a human-centric cast with no clue that the Federation is much larger than humans.

oh

and no Klingons.

that’s right

NO KRIFING KLINGONS.

Usually at this point of a movie release cycle (less than 8 wks to go) the trailers get really interesting. After all, the trailer is the studio’s opportunity to get the best 30-90 seconds of the movie into a snippet.

The latest Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer is out today – April 1st – but apparently it’s not a joke. It’s just a sad testament to the lack of direction and dedication to the Star Trek mythos

watch for yourself:

Star Trek Into Darkness SUCKS cause there are no Klingons March 26, 2013

No we’re not too excited about the new Star Trek into Darkness movie.

For one simple reason.

NO KLINGONS.

AGAIN.

No we don’t need to see Klingons in every movie, but we haven’t seen any in the Star Trek reboot yet. In classic Trek, Klingons are the definition of the bad guys and so much can be done with them.

But instead of Klingons we get some rogue Starfleet agent gone bad.

WTF is up with that?

Are you listening J J Abrams? What’s next? Are you going to make Star Wars Episode VII all about Jar Jar Binks?

 

Dying to see Star Trek Into Darkness January 10, 2013

a truly sad tale…but shows that J J Abrams does have a heart…

A terminally ill child had a request posted on reddit – http://www.reddit.com/r/startrek/comments/15f7rf/please_come_to_the_rescue_of_a_star_trek_fan/ – that he wanted to see Into Darkness before he died.

J J Abrams delivered.

“The next day, one of the film’s producers showed up at the door of their apartment with a DVD containing a very rough cut of Star Trek: Into Darkness in his hands. Paige had made popcorn, Dan had spent the previous day resting so he could sit through the movie, and after signing about 200 non-disclosure agreements they watched the film and had a blast.

ST13-Poster

The first Star Trek Into Darkness poster is here and we’re already worried.

Sure this is just a teaser..but the post apocalyptic vision of the Federation has been done – remember that Enterprise episode where Archer is taken into the far future where Earth is destroyed? yeaah that’s what we thought too.

Still it’s early.

There is still hope

KLINGONS!!! WE WANT KLINGONS.

 

Star Trek Into Darkness – the first plot synopsis is here! November 28, 2012

The new crew of Star Trek XI

Ok we know that Star Trek (Reboot) II will not be called the Wrath of Khan and instead will be called Into Darkness. What we didn’t know though was what the movie was about.

Now we kinda/sorta do.

Star Trek Producer JJ Abrams has released a preliminary synopsis of the new movie.

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

Umm ok.

So will there be any Klingons?

Seriously people. Klingons.

By the Betleth of K’ahless WE WANT KLINGONS.

Ok we’ve got a name for Star Trek 2 (reboot). No it’s not the Wrath of Khan, thought he original Star Trek II remains the best of all Trek films.

The name is

Star Trek Into Darkness.

Let’s all hope that the Darkness include some Klingons this time…the release version of Star Trek was missing them…

At this point, all of the principal photgraphy for Star Trek Into Darkness has been completed and the film is in Post Production.

Star Trek Into Darkness is set to be released on May 17, 2013.
