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.

WTF is this dickwad doing managing the Star Trek movies? srsly? You hired this J J Abrams guy?

In an interview in Playboy (yes that playboy), Abrams admits how little he knows about Trek.

Well, I haven’t seen every episode of every version of every Star Trek series, but I’m sure there are many more places to go. What’s great about doing another origin story is that it’s all about anticipating the Star Trek world we know is to come. You can play with who Spock and Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise were before they were Spock and Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise. It’s a kind of tease.

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?

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.
