Superbowl Star Trek Trailer = More Adrenaline

Published 6 years ago by

So here’s the deal, if you’re a long time Star Trek fan you’re either going to love the upcoming Star Trek movie or you’re going to hate it. I’m betting there will be no middle ground on this one. But I’m betting that if you’re NOT a Trek fan, this movie is going to rock your world.

While I’m still having a bit of a hard time wrapping my head around Chris Pine as Kirk (especially his use of the word “man” 200 years from now in the following trailer) I’m leaning towards the “gonna love it” camp.

Enough yakking, check out the latest trailer, which will premier on TV during the Super Bowl…


There have been comparisons of this film to Star Wars but I don’t think that’s right. This looks like it’s going to have its own look and feel and is going to be like Star Trek on steroids. In the end, will it be great? That remains to be seen, but at this point I’m thinking my cautious optimism over the course of the production will end up being justified.

What do YOU think?

Star Trek opens on May 8th.

  1. I dont have a link but TrekMovie has an analysis of the ad which includes a very spoiler specific explanation of what is now being called the skydiving scene .
    You can go to TrekMovie and see what thats about .
    Its very important to the plot .
    They believe the “Woo Hoo” line was not spoken by one of the main characters.

  2. Too Abercrombie for me. Seems we are in for a Bay-esque Trek. Still looking forward to it. Popcorn Trek is still better than the last 20 yrs of Next Gen, banal, pseudo-intellectial, pretentious, Berkley-Left wing Trek (except DS9 which was great)

    Yeah, I never liked Picard’s leadership by committee. Like he was incapable of making a decision on his own or just wanted to validate the self-esteem of his bridge crew by asking them for their opinion.

    Give me Kirk any day.


  4. Here Here!!!

    Or having a Kindergarten in the middle of the Space Naval Fleet’s Flag-Battleship???? Like some sort ofNorthern California-Oregon New Age Tantric commune. I guess ramming that section of the ship (Where the kindergarten would be) into the Shinzon ship in Nemisis (WITHOUT EVACUATING THE SHIP FIRST!!) took care of the shortage of chocolate milk. Pure Hippie Utopian poo.

    Hey Vicster, I like the cut of your jib and I love the site. Wondering if you ever get updates from Criterion regarding their upcoming releases.

  5. @Lord Garth

    Hey, thanks bro – appreciate the props. Sorry, but I don’t get any sort of updates from Criterion. I’m sure you can find that on the web somewhere…



  6. “Set your phasers to stun.”

    LMAO, imagine if our troops had to load rubber bullets into their M4′s… :-D

  7. oh my god this is going to be excellent. i know its going to be better than the past star trek films. the trailer looks so cool; the costumes, ships, and CG looks awesome.
    ”go star trek”

  8. As far as Kirk’s “Man” comment – Anyone remember doc McCoy in TWOK? I do remember him saying, “Good God, Man!” So it is no stretch.

    As far as the Enterprise being built on Earth. – Are you sure that was Earth? In the future, Mars is Terraformed no? The Mars desert may look like Earth. We should wait and see. ;)

    Personal Note — I am soooo pumped for this film I can barely contain myself!!! lol
