My excessive excitement about the impending Star Trek film is reaching unnatural extremes. I may do myself an injury. I cannot wait to see this film. Just released is the new trailer. This is two minutes of prime spectacle. I implore you to go and watch this right now.
You will be able to view the destruction of the USS Kelvin, an imploding planet, Spock and Uhura cuddling and Kirk being beaten up. This looks amazing and sends shivers down my spine and makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
Will I be disappointed when I see it in May? Yeah, of course I will but I still believe this film will p*ss all over Watchmen, Wolverine, Harry Potter, Transformers and Terminator Salvation.
Other Star Trek news: The film tie-in novel is to be written by the legendary Alan Dean Foster – who wrote a number of other great tie-in novels, including The Thing, Alien, Dark Star, Outland and Clash of the Titans.
Also, keep an eye out for the Star Trek XI prequel comic book Countdown. This spans the period between Nemesis through to the new film – obviously two different time lines and should go some way to explaining Nero’s desire for destruction.
