Folks who went to see Cloverfield got a tantalizing glimpse at the upcoming Star Trek movie
, scheduled to hit the Theaters on December 25, 2008. Click here
to visit the official website and see the trailer itself. An official press release has this to say about the movie:
"From director J.J. Abrams (“Mission: Impossible III,” “Lost” and “Alias”) and screenwriters Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman (“TRANSFORMERS,” “MI: III”) comes a new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time, “Star Trek,” featuring a young, new crew venturing boldly where no man has gone before."
Recently, I've been watching the DVD set of Star Trek Deep Space Nine and I have to say that I wish there was more of that on the large screen. There was more intrique, more development, more sense of huge fleets of deadly ships moving across the galaxy to change the destinies of planets and empires. Think back to the recent Star Trek films - how many ships were on the screen? Two or three. Compare that to "Way of the Warrior" (DS9 Season 4) where an entire Klingon fleet was battling the space station.
That is not to say that more ships on the screen makes for a better movie. There was a lot of tension that built up to the battle, so that when it finally arrived, you knew that this was a huge powder keg about to go off.
But what do I know? I'm just a cartoonist that's good at making games. But I know what I like. Time will tell.
