Today we have two new clips from the upcoming and eagerly anticipated Star Trek. The videos give us a nice introduction to Dr. McCoy and hints at the relationship between Kirk and Spock.
First up, thanks to Film School Rejects, we have a scene featuring one of the big three original Star Trek characters, Leonard “Bones” McCoy. In J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Dr. McCoy is played by none other than one of my favorite actors, Karl Urban.
The video emphasizes McCoy’s personality and character, and Urban truely portrays the character as he was in the original series without coming off as an imitation. This video shows that he nailed it - watch and see what you think:
I think he’s absolutely perfect for this role and I can’t think of anyone who looks and plays the part better.
Next, we have another funny scene – this one taking place where Spock first meets Scotty. Although, the funny part comes not from Simon Pegg’s Scotty, but from feeling the anger build up inside of Spock. Check it out and see for yourself:
These videos are awesome and Dr. McCoy is awesome. After hearing all the great reviews of the Star Trek from the premieres in Austin, Texas and Sydney Australia, Star Trek is back in my top three most anticipated of the year.
What do you think of the videos and will you be seeing this in theaters?
Star Trek opens May 8, 2009 and I’ll be there.
