“You will experience fear.”

Posted by Michael Warren on March 7, 2009

After someone over on this side of the Atlantic got a little impatient, and put it online a few days ahead of schedule, Paramount officially released the new Star Trek trailer on Friday morning (when they were originally planning to do so on Monday morning). It was a nice thing to wake up to – although it did almost make me late for work as a result of the magnificence.

Yes, I thought it was spectacular. Giving us action, characterisation, emotion and jaw-dropping visuals, it blew the first trailer out of the sky. And it gave us our first looks at a number of things, including [highlight to read] George Kirk, the Enterprise in full, and James T. taking his place at the conn.  I had to go back and watch it through a few times just to process everything. And the music was just right, Two Steps from Hell once again delivering a spine-tingling piece.

I close out with a few of my favourite images and moments…

"Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes..."

"Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes..."

"We've got no captain, and no first officer to replace him." "Yeah, we do."

"We've got no captain, and no first officer to replace him." "Yeah, we do."

Tell me this didn't give you goosebumps...

Tell me this didn't give you goosebumps...

The angles on some of these shots are like nothing I've seen in Trek before - and that pleases me.

The whole thing has a "blockbuster" feel to it...

New Star Trek trailer incoming…?

Posted by Michael Warren on August 14, 2008

This weekend, the British movie magazine Empire and the British Film Institute are hosting the first ever Movie-Con in London – a movie preview event. The material being shown is described as ‘highly exclusive’ and ‘footage that you won’t be able to see elsewhere’.

The schedule of events was posted earlier today – and one item in particular caught my eye…

Sunday – August 17th

4.15pm – 5.45pm

A number of items, including:

  • Paramount sizzle reel including Ghost Town, Eagle Eye, How to Lose Friends And Alienate People, Madagascar 2, Friday The 13th, and Star Trek trailers.

Now, based on the quotes above – is this the teaser we’ve all seen, or is it something new…?

(The full schedule can be seen here.)
