“The wait is over.”

Words cannot express how much I am looking forward to the new Star Trek movie. It goes above even the anticipation I felt for “Speed Racer” or “Spider-Man 3.” AND NOW THE TRAILER IS ONLIIIIIIIIINE!!!

Here’s the link to the video itself on youtube.

More specific thoughts on the trailer: OH MY GOSH A REAL TRAILER IS FINALLY HERE!!!

Even more specific thoughts on the trailer: It looks awesome. Just. Flat-out. Awesome. There’s more going on in this trailer than has been going on in the Trek-verse for nigh on five or six years now. My doubts about Chris Pine as Kirk have nearly been erased – he looks like the perfect cocky mo’fo to play the legendary captain. There’s precious little of Spock, but what is there looks excellent as well – Zachary Quinto, as we all knew was going to be the case, is perfect. Simon Pegg – “I like this ship – it’s exciting!” is hilarious. And is that Zoe Saldana doing a little strip tease? Hmmm……….and plus, we’re getting glimpses of the bad guy – Karl Urban as Nero. I like his dialog. “Space is diseased.” Basically, this movie looks like everything that the Trek franchise needs to get back on its feet. The story looks pretty damn interesting, it takes some liberalities with the Trek-verse apparently too (oh hush down you diehard fanboys – sometimes a little editing and snippage is necessary to make something better), and looks to give us an action packed story that will also be full of fascinating character interactions – this is the Enterprise crew back before they were a well-oiled machine – they’re going to make mistakes, blunders, and we’ll get to see them grow. Plus, of course, the special effects and action look top notch.

Dang it, why does it have to be all the way in May?
