It’s been a long 4 years, but we finally get a look at JJ Abrams highly anticipated sequel to the rebooted Star Trek. In my opinion, the new Star Trek franchise is one of the few reboot/re-start/re-imagining that surpassed expectations at every level- and I am saying this as a HARDCORE Trekkie. Even though 4 years has been a long time in cinema terms, I’m glad that JJ took his time with it instead of rushing a ‘McMovie’ out to make a buck. Apparently from to this teaser, this Star Trek adventures seems to be much different than it’s predecessors- which is a good thing. We’ll be getting a longer version on Dec 17th so keep your hailing frequencies open. What are your thoughts?

When it was first announced that JJ Abrams Star Trek sequel would hit the theaters in 2013, I was elated. Then when it was announced that a special 9-minute preview would be released in front of The Hobbit IMAX, I was going plain bananas- and immediately started making plans to seeing it there. However, upon further thought, I started to reconsider this decision. Even though I loved seeing both the Dark Knight and DKR previews, I do think it took away from the impact when seeing their respective films. I love Star Trek more than anything so I am in a dilemma if I should see this preview since it’s my highest anticipated film for next year. What do you think? Do you like to see these extended previews or do you avoid them? Thanks for your vote!
I take offense to this…but admit it’s all true
Easily the most hyped panel at WonderCon this year, Prometheus is building up to be potentially the best movie of 2012. At it’s panel, Director Ridley Scott, Charlize Theron, and Michael Fassbender all avoided using the words ‘Alien prequel’- however this trailer seems to spell that out pretty clearly. I guess Scott is trying to keep it a mystery as long as possible. Prometheus brings Scott back into the sci-fi genre after a two decades absence (Blade Runner). I can’t wait.
IGN does another REWIND of the newest AVENGERS trailer. Warning, potential plot spoilers included. Enjoy!
If you didn’t catch it during the game, here’s the Avengers Super Bowl spot (extended version). It’s ripe with new details and glimpses to analyze and gush over until May. One of my favorite shots has to be at 42s, the emphasized sound of each hero’s weapon as the camera pans around is a very nice and epic touch. May 4th can’t come soon enough.
10. Les Miserables – Dec 7
2. The Dark Knight Rises - July 2012
Director: Chris Nolan
Cast: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Marion Cotillard
DUH. The only reason this movie is #2 on the list is because of The Avengers. I have no doubt The Dark Knight Rises will be the better film, but we already know what to expect from Christopher Nolan in this final chapter of the Batman saga.
1. The Avengers – May 4
Director: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samual L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg . . did I get them all?
Iron Man. Captain America. Thor. Hulk. Black Widow. Hawkeye. Nick Fury. ONE MOVIE. I’m still in awe that this movie is being made. We’ve been waiting for it since Nick Fury stepped out of the shadows of Iron Man in 2008. Four years and four cameo-laden, reference-filled, and stinger-capped movies later, the wait is almost over. AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!
The first two Batman movies should have been enough to dispel any doubts in the franchise. However, since the early images of Bane and Catwoman hit the airwaves, we have still managed to conjure up criticism. This new trailer should prove that the third installment will be nothing but epic. In fact, epic may be an understatement. In Nolan we trust.
The more we see, the more we like. Marvel, keep it coming!
I have to admit, this second trailer makes Thor look a little better. I have been skeptical about seeing the Norse god on screen but maybe Marvel can pull this off. With Captain America, X-Men First Class, and now Thor- DC you better get your act together! Let us know what you think!
Opening March 11th.
