Rumor: New Star Trek Trailer Description [UPDATE: DEBUNKED] July 2, 2008

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Rumor,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

A possible description of the next trailer for JJ Abrams Star Trek has shown up online. According to CinemaBlend it was sent in by a reader so they have not verified it.
UPDATE: TrekMovie has confirmed the description IS NOT for the next Star Trek trailer.

 

 

The [FAKE] description makes the trailer sound like a modern updating of the TOS opening credits sequence. Excerpt from CinemaBlend:

Paramount logo shows (newly updated) and pans up into the stars… Then an incredible (new?) musical score begins which sounds as if a little of Trek 2 and 3 scores were blended in. Switches to shots of stunning starfields. Closeups of the Enterprise hull while voice-over begins. Narration from older Spock: “The needs of the many… outweigh the needs of the few..” quick pause… Younger Spock: “Or the one” (Quintos line seemed so Leonard Nimoy sounding!)Switch to shot of Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto standing together looking over a horizon at the Enterprise on Earth with an epic city in the background.

The classic Trek overture begins (sounds far more symphonic and far more intense). Narrator: “Next Summer Paramount Pictures Presents…” “The beginning…. of the greatest epic…. of our time” Music dramatically intensifies with numerous planets shown (special effects are mind-blowing).

Chris Pine (?) narration begins with music continuing to intensify while showing a space bound Enterprise…. “Space… “The final frontier….”

UPDATE: Sorry folks
According to multiple highly placed insider sources, this is just a fanboy dream, with one source even noting “Total BS,” Vreenak agrees…

Interest in the next Trek trailer is high and this is the second time TrekMovie has debunked a false rumor about the follow-up trailer to the teaser released in January. TrekMovie has confirmed that there is a trailer in the works and that it ‘goes beyond’ the January teaser. Right now the most likely target for that trailer would be for the Fall, with possibly another longer theatrical trailer for next Spring. As more is learned on the next Trek Trailer, TrekMovie will be sure to provide updates.

That sounds cool!

2. AdamTrek - July 2, 2008

Sounds like a decent 2nd teaser trailer to me.

3. That One Guy - July 2, 2008

First, methinks? Doubt it.

If this is the trailer, it’ll draw in FAR more people than expected. Gimme!

4. Anthony - July 2, 2008

if it is true, i will die a happy man. and cry. i will cry well

5. Kirk, James T. - July 2, 2008

OH MY GOD sounds incredible perhaps Star Trek will be at SDCC this year ;)

6. spockboy - July 2, 2008

I love the idea of using an updated version of Horner’s Trek theme. It is the best of them all in my opinion. Evoking the naval origins of Trek and a send of thrilling discovery. Updating the classic voiceovers to include Nimoy and Quinto was a great idea. Not sure if anyone will recognize Pine’s voice, but the words and the fact that it’s not Shatner should probably be enough for most folks to figure out it’s Kirk. But the most important reveal is the spacebound Enterprise glory shot. It it’s done properly, that should make me cry with pride & joy in the theatre. I can’t wait.

7. diabolik - July 2, 2008

My colon is starting to spasm a little.

8. Jim - July 2, 2008

It would indeed be a good day to cry.

9. Sisko's Shrimp Gumbo - July 2, 2008

Tres cool

10. Closettrekker - July 2, 2008

I have no idea what “Tropic Thunder” is, but if there is a new ST trailer attached to it, I’ll pay to see it…

Are you listening, Paramount?

11. Norman - July 2, 2008

I just hope the movie has Harry Mudd.

(Jack Black for the role???)

12. spockboy - July 2, 2008

Though I hope they don’t go too far with the mind-blowing special effects. Effects are important to be sure on a trek movie. I can’t wait to see a full realized starship interior, but effects are not what makes a good Trek movie (i love The Motionless Picture like a close relative, but it put effects well in front of meaning a good plot and character involvement). I sure hope JJ and the gang can come thru with the goods and create a story and update the characters so they are involving, identifiable and have a sense of realism to them as well as involveing them in a compelling story that’s fun to watch again and again. It’s a tall order. I hope they can do it!

13. Star Trek: Voyeur - July 2, 2008

Gawd, if it’s not true then J.J. should hire the writer of that script!
Now, I’ll be depressed if that trailer is not the real….McCoy!

14. hitch1969© - July 2, 2008

This is wonderful news, people, even if it’s not true. Because if it’s true, then how exciting. But even if it is false… it was still exciting.

It’s sort of like Star Trek eroticale’™, innit? There’s nothing wrong with that. Lettuce get our kink on. Let them all watch us. WHO CARES?

Oh what wonderful Wednesday funtimes! This made my day!

BEST!!

=h=

15. NCC-73515 - July 2, 2008

Every single hair of my skin was just raised and refused to return to the body…

16. SPOCKBOY - July 2, 2008

Hey, who the hell is using my name?
#1) #6) #12)

17. tholianhata - July 2, 2008

“The greatest epic of our time”? Somehow, that rings false. But the rest sounds good. And as long as we get to see the Enterprise, I’ll be happy.

18. Deep_Space_913 - July 2, 2008

I got goosebumps just reading the darn description!

19. ShawnP - July 2, 2008

Oh, man, I can’t wait! I think I’m drooling a bit…

20. SPOCKBOY - July 2, 2008

I realize that it’s a free country and everything but I ‘ve been posting gag reels and using that name on this site for quite a long time now.
I would appreciate it it you could come up with your OWN name.

Thanks buddy.
:)

21. SPOCKBOY - July 2, 2008

And yes, the trailer sounds absolutely fantastic!

22. S. John Ross - July 2, 2008

Sounds like a groovy trailer!

#17: Could be worse; it could say “everything you know is about to change” or some other painful trailer cliche :)

If they really do attach it to a Ben Stiller comedy, though (as the article suggests as a possibility) that would be … odd.

Speaking of:

#10: It’s a Ben Stiller comedy (w Jack Black and others) about actors playing soldiers who get drawn into real events.

23. Spock Boy - July 2, 2008

AMAZING! I hope the rumorz are true.

<–Sounting down the time til 09!

24. Anthony Pascale - July 2, 2008

“Spock Boy” and “spockboy” thanks for dropping by, but please pick a new names as our friend SPOCKBOY has staked out that territory

25. Kobayashi_Maru - July 2, 2008

wow…definitely can’t wait to see it…and it’ll be interesting to see if the flashes of the crew will be in the cadet uniforms or in their classic gear.

26. CmdrR - July 2, 2008

Please, Paramount, pick a better movie than Tropic Thunder to release this trailer.

Sounds great!

27. diabolik - July 2, 2008

SPOCKBOY has encountered both an evil clone and a Mirror double on the same day. Rarely does that happen.

28. DJT - July 2, 2008

Time is the fire in which we burn.

29. Sular - July 2, 2008

WWVS (What Would Vreenak Say)

30. Wayne Spitzer - July 2, 2008

Well, see? You have to have some faith. From the start, the signs have all been good–I don’t think this team has missed a note yet. I hope this is real (and I think it is). The description alone leaves me speechless. Makes you want to quit slouching around and stand up like a human again.

Good on Trek. Good on the movies. And good on all of us fans. Wow!

31. Norman - July 2, 2008

i think Spock Boy (clone) owes me money…

wait – i am thinking of Kodos the Executioner…

nevermind…

32. CmdrR - July 2, 2008

The article goes on to say:

“It truly feels like a 70s or 80s film where it was an event to see a film at the theater.”

That has been sorely missing. Everyone knows why. It’s not the quality of the movies; it’s the deteriorating quality of the theatre experience. I look forward to Trek, of course. But, unless theatres effectively get audiences to behave (i.e. shut off the cell phones and other gadgets, leave babies at home — except for kid-friendly films including Wall-E — and stop talking during the film) then they may as well shutter the googleplexes for everything but the most crass films that are designed for loud audiences and low memorability.

Now I’ll shaddap.

33. star trackie - July 2, 2008

If that’s the trailer it seems a little light. But I guess at this point it would still be considered a teaser.

Not that I don’t welcome it with open arms, but if they are going to reach out beyond the current fan base and put non-trekkie bodies in the seats, they will need a preview that goes way beyond a clip of NImoy and familiar dialog than only fans will remember. Then again, with a year to go, they have enough time to target every demographic imaginable. Maybe they are just targeting the trekkies first.

34. Brian - July 2, 2008

This sound AMAZING! I hope this is true!

35. Captain Mateo - July 2, 2008

WOW…I had been googling for information on this trailer for weeks each day, and the day I stop, the info is out and it is great news…

In the mean time someone ought to create a fake trailer with these descriptions and promote it as the real trailer.

36. SPB - July 2, 2008

NOT BUYIN’ IT…

Sorry, that sounds underwhelming and something shoddy you’d see on YouTube. Adding the “Needs of the Many” line (something I hope I never hear again–it’s already been done to death) only adds to the fanboyish-ness of the description.

37. MONGO - July 2, 2008

I want to see this now!

And Spockboy (for real one) I’ve been waiting for your gag reel of the new trailer. This news is getting old. It’s been mere moments.

38. Adam Cohen - July 2, 2008

Goosebumps. Major ones.

39. Trekmatt - July 2, 2008

I love that trailer description, i hope its real or if its not, i hope the real one is as good! Like a few people have said, they’re still in teaser trailer territory, so i’m not expecting a lot to be shown just yet, not till probs trailer 3, where they’ll most likely show a bit more ‘meat’.

May be Paramount will surprise us all and actually appear at Comic Con and show everyone the new trailer, we can only hope!

40. Bones Thugs & McCoy - July 2, 2008

This sounds fake.

The transition from Nimoy’s to Quinto’s voice will only mean something to a very small percentage of people…..

41. BrF - July 2, 2008

I don’t buy it. Needs of the many v. the needs of the few is insider baseball, and Paramount wants to reach out. The segue to Kirk’s voice is awkward, too, and when was the last time anyone was stunned by a field of stars? Whole thing sounds off to me.

42. SPB - July 2, 2008

THE OTHER THING NOTABLY MISSING FROM THIS DESCRIPTION…

…nothing about how both Spocks look (what are they wearing exactly) or any real description of the Enterprise (other than showing the hull… and…???).

“Special effects are mind-blwoing.” How so?

Description ends with Pine’s narration, but nothing else? Do they show a new STAR TREK logo? Does it say, “Coming May 2009?” What?

43. British Naval Dude - July 2, 2008

arrr… hope this trailer is double-wide…

“Tropic Thunder’ entails a movie within’ a movie in which a film crew shooting a war film unbeknownst ta’ them in a real war zone… Bobby Downey, Jr. plays a black gent, perhaps stereotypically… not unlike Orson Welle’s “Othello.” Bobby Downey gets ta’ start tha’ summer and end tha’ summer. Arrrrr… so could be worthwhile ta’ see beyound a silly trailer…

sorry thar’ mates… actual ST footage not be silly, eh

bad theatre experiences… I find that yellin’ inta a rude person’s mobile telephone “Here’s yer twenty bucks.. whar’ are me pants now?” is an effective way ta’ curb thar’ behaviour… or at least have some fun… get booted oot by tha’ usher…

Oh, and I am changin’ me name ta’ “Spockboy”… not here, but on me birth certificate…

Arrrrrrr…

44. That One Guy - July 2, 2008

Fake!

D’OH!

So when are we getting another REAL one?

45. Anthony Pascale - July 2, 2008

Vreenak has weighed in

46. cpelc - July 2, 2008

man…..well at least maybe somebody could take that description and make a fake one of it for us to enjoy until the real one comes out

47. ShawnP - July 2, 2008

OK, wiping up my drool…

48. Spockanella - July 2, 2008

32: Agreed about the movies. I almost never go anymore because of the behavior of the viewers. Folks, you’re not in your living rooms.

49. CmdrR - July 2, 2008

MAN, this is a long year.

50. Captain Hackett - July 2, 2008

Wow it sounds so neat!

There will be more than 500 comments in a new article about the movie trailer when it is released to public!

51. Captain Hackett - July 2, 2008

Ugh! Why do we have to be born suckers?! :(

52. Trekmatt - July 2, 2008

Fake – i’m sad now :(

53. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - July 2, 2008

We really should ask Harry Knowles before we debunk it

54. snake - July 2, 2008

fake??

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It sounded fuckin AWESOME

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

55. diabolik - July 2, 2008

My colon is calming down now after this false alarm. I just hope the real trailer is a great one.

56. British Naval Dude - July 2, 2008

arrrr… thar’ be some instances in which I rather enjoy fake things….

oh… fur goodness sakes, I be talkin aboot Pre-Raphealite forgeries…

maybe…

Arrrrr…

57. AJ - July 2, 2008

Man, the text of that “trailer” sounds like it was written by an 11-year old. And the idea of mixing the almost identical themes of TWOK and TSFS is hint enough that this is a load of BS. I would hurl if it were real.

58. Kobayashi_Maru - July 2, 2008

FAKE???

DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

I am in some serious need of some new news on this movie!!!

59. Norman - July 2, 2008

…maybe if Jack Black is unavaiable, Gary Coleman could play Harry Mudd.

may be too late for this pic, but maybe the sequel???

(or perhaps Shaq as Harry Mudd…)

“Kirk! how my *%$ taste???”….

60. Dennis Bailey - July 2, 2008

Well, there’s the fact that the description of the “trailer” in question includes absolutely no detail that is not either predictable or derived from previous Trek. That in itself is generally an earmark of a fanboy fabulation.

This is up now over at CinemaBlend:

“Update! The guys over at TrekMovie claim their anonymous sources say our anonymous sources’ above information is fake. But since everyone is stuck using anonymous sources… well your guess is as good as ours when it comes to figuring out which bunch of anonymous sources is right.”

Actually, everybody’s guess is not as good as everybody else’s – if you’ve been following the Trek news for the last couple of years you know that you can believe what Trekmovie posts, and any time there’s a contradiction between the news here and rumors on other websites it’s Trekmovie that turns out to be right.

61. hitch1969© - July 2, 2008

Look – don’t be sad. SO someone pulled a Crying Game® on us. But you know what, it’s like the old song by Meatloaf© tells us, “Now don’t be sad… cuz two out of three ain’t bad”. So there was ONE thing wrong with it. But it did have some really cool OTHER things going for it.

That’s what I am saying. Are you a glass 2/3 full kind of person? And the good parts were SO perfect, they really pulled it off. Nothing wrong with that.

Come on fellas, cheer up. Don’t be so negative. I’d rather remember the two thirds and just pretend I didn’t see the hangly dangly TROOF®. Then there’s no harm, no foul. Accentuate the positive and ignore the negative.

Who’s with me?

BEST!!

=h=

62. MORN SPEAKS - July 2, 2008

Vreenak doesn’t play games! Thank god that’s a fake, it didn’t sound good to me, it just oozed FAKE.

63. British Naval Dude - July 2, 2008

thanke nigh naught on thar’, hitch1969

iffi ever wanna be a churny bammed then mayhaps I can elistee up in yer biley commune and be a full o’marshee plums wit’ tha’ “positive vibes” which currly-ook me better quarters- well, at best tha’ wee gangley-oos that bearrrr registration marks…

oh- no offense, matey, but sometimes ye’ be hard ta’ understands…

Arrrrrr….

64. Trekmatt - July 2, 2008

Dennis and Hitch you both make good points

65. Closettrekker - July 2, 2008

Oh well…

66. Irishtrekkie - July 2, 2008

I <3 Vreenak

67. Norman - July 2, 2008

British Naval Dude for President!

68. Steve - July 2, 2008

Why are humans so mean. I will try to undash my hopes.

69. Trekmatt - July 2, 2008

Lets hope the real trailer leaves us all feeling as excitied :)

70. SteveinSF - July 2, 2008

Thank God it’s fake-it sounded so stupid!

71. Will Doe 68 - July 2, 2008

The fake sounded nice,at least we almost had something. Still resentful towards Paramount though. Can we have a Image please? Even the Wachowski brothers put an image of the Mack 5 online a year before the film.(didn’t help the picture though)

72. sherlockfreak - July 2, 2008

DEAR GOD I am ready for a new trailer!!!

Sigh…

73. Captain Alex - July 2, 2008

son a $@#$!

This got me so excited, and then poof, I’m listening to “It’s a fake!!!”

74. Thomas - July 2, 2008

I liked the description even if it was fake, but it does sound like something a fanboy would dream up. Too many references to previous Trek incarnations, when this movie should be bringing in people who know little to nothing about Trek. Also, does anyone really think they would even show Nimoy and Quinto standing together in the teaser? That sounds like something rather big to give away in just a teaser.

75. section9 - July 2, 2008

Sorry guys, Senator Vreenak has Spoken!

Vreenak is NEVER WRONG!

76. hitch1969© - July 2, 2008

You know the good thing is that AP has the ability to bring this to our attention so quickly, and then debunk it just as fast. I think some o’ you sourpusses are overlooking that fact. It was… fun. Oh My.

My reaction initially leaned towards believing it mainly because I wouldn’t think that AP would knowingly post a bogus story. He said that he was checking it. Fair enough.

What if there was no trekmovies dot com backsplash net? What if dis was just floating around da youtube wif no AUTHORITAH® like Vreenak™ to figure it all out for us?

This reminds me of a time in middle school, and all me blokes be sayin to hitch1969 dat tha school hottie was sayin dat she wanted to be all promiscuous with my person. Of course that part was true. So I took her on a date to Red Lobster™, got some liquor into her afterwards at City Park. Thought for sure that me is going to seal the deal. Then her daddy showed up with a shotgun and me ran like skeeered chicken.

The moral of the story was that either way, when me got home me take matters in me own hands and it be just as quality. Even though it wasn’t what me had planned, everything turned out OK and me got da same results. Aiiiiight?

It’s not how we get there. It’s where we’re going. It’s not how long it takes to get there, but how grate things are when we do. Am I making perfect sense? Of course I am.

77. I'm Dead Jim! - July 2, 2008

I pray nobody in this movie says the line “the needs of the many… etc.” I agree. That dead horse was beaten into compost.

78. spockboy - July 2, 2008

I don’t post comments very often, but I’ve been using Spockboy for at least a year, when was SPOCKBOY’s first post?

Anthony, I just did a search and there are at least a dozen Anthony Pascales listed in US white pages. Do you politely call themup and ask them to change their names? ;)

79. S. John Ross - July 2, 2008

I’m just glad that I can relax my concern about seeing a Star Trek trailer premiering in front of a Ben Stiller comedy :/

But I’d totally love that fake trailer, should anyone decide to make it anyway :)

80. British Naval Dude - July 2, 2008

tha’ ends justifyin’ tha’ means be tha’ worst bit o’ infantile illogic tha’ human race ever did concoct…
well… that be all I have ta’ say on that matter… ever…

Movin’ on now… I promise!

Tha’ lack o’ news in tha’ film area do provoke us yon into that thar’ red alert…

One day, we little ones will wake up and see tha’ trailer…
‘course by then I will have moved onto tha’ BlackSheepSquadronMovieNews.com webbypage…

Oh, I kid… I suppose I can have more than one hobby…

Norman-
When nominated, I will not run. When running, I will not get elected. When elected, I will not serve. When serving, I will not lie. When lying, I will not tell tha’ truth.

See? I’d be be open and honest all tha’ way. And’ inexplicably start a war wit’ Chile (what tha’ heck.)

Arrrrrr…

81. Joe - July 2, 2008

Sounds like the trailer is for meant for Trek fans, not the wider audience JJ is going for. Kinda gives away that it may be a fake.

What I wanna know is why the Enterprise is still on Earth. Didn’t Bob Orci or JJ or one of the other producers say that parts would be built on land but it would all be assembled in space?

Mr. Orci, if you are reading this, please confirm! I don’t think this little tidbit would give away a substantial portion of the plot, will it? Thanks!

82. Jai1138 - July 2, 2008

Vreenak seems like a trusty, stand-up guy… y’know, for a Romulan.

83. NCC-73515 - July 2, 2008

This is “insider info” vs “insider info”. No one knows the truth.

84. TrekBama - July 2, 2008

Well even though assumingly, its fake, I agree with other posters.. get the person who wrote it on board to make that very trailer, as they actually have a clue to what Trek fans like me want to see, a trailer strictly aimed at the Trek fanbase. As a lifelong 30+ year Trek fan, the first few hours we didnt know for sure it was fake had me giddy as well. So whoever wrote it, well.. it worked on me! To actually see it however would probably be some Trek-like religious experience for me.

85. Joe - July 2, 2008

Good point #83. Who knows if even Paramount is really behind this one as well as a few more over the next several months, just to confuse us all, but give us something to ponder over while they make the official one.

86. SPOCKBOY - July 2, 2008

Hey #78
Enough already.
I’m SPOCKBOY!
(I’m also Spartacus!)

By the way, thank you Anthony :)

peace.

87. Thomas - July 2, 2008

79. It would actually be a good idea for a Trek trailer to appear before Tropic Thunder. It would definitely reach a wide, untapped audience who might not be interested otherwise. Besides, Ben Stiller is a big Trek fan, he even named his production company Red Hour Films. Only a Trek fan would pick as (relatively) obscure a reference as that for their company’s name.

88. MONGO - July 2, 2008

NCC-73515 persons

I trust Anthony mans more than coffee movie site. Anthony more focused than other.

And name copiers are bad.

89. Anthony Pascale - July 2, 2008

spockboy (aka Bill)
Actually you have been using ‘Fanboy’ not spockboy. I am reserving SPOCKBOY for Paul who is also a contributor to this site…i am sorry. Feel free to use Fanboy or any other unique name.

90. Anthony Pascale - July 2, 2008

NCC-73515
The reputation of this site should speak for itself. We have NEVER got a report like this wrong, and have debunked quite a few false rumors in the past. I can assure you that our multiple sources on this list are far far far more reliable than someone who wrote into another site.

This is reminiscent of when screenrant was 100% sure that the new trailer was going to be with Indy 4, even after we reported that was not true. It is the same sources who tell us this report isn’t true

some rumors take hold because they are what people want to believe. We report what we believe to be true.

91. Norman - July 2, 2008

my suspicion:

AP = Shat

he is taking us all for a fun ride…

92. S. John Ross - July 2, 2008

#87 sez: “It would actually be a good idea for a Trek trailer to appear before Tropic Thunder.”

Of course it would be a good idea. It would be a good idea for a Trek trailer to appear before every movie Paramount can afford to stick it in front of … the broader the exposure, the better.

But I never said it wouldn’t be :) My concern wasn’t about the trailer appearing with the Ben Stiller comedy; my concern was the notion (that the article, pre-amendment, suggested as a possibility) that the trailer would be specifically attached/premiered with the Ben Stiller comedy (which would be … odd).

93. classictrek - July 2, 2008

whats all this bloody ‘where no one has gone before’ business!! its ‘where no MAN has gone before’ for the original series. this has to be a hoax.

cheers

94. fanboy - July 2, 2008

Okay SPOCKBOY. I’m certain I’ve posted under spockboy before without complaint, but I’ve also used fanboy. So if Anthony says to give it up , I will since I respect this site a lot. No harm meant.
And I don’t want MONGO mad at me either.

95. Thomas - July 2, 2008

92. Admittedly, it might seem unusual that it would be attached to a comedy, but who knows? We know that Ben visited the set and that he is a fan, so maybe he could possibly have had some pull in Trekteaser becoming attached. It doesn’t matter anyway, since this is apparently a bogus trailer description.

96. Anthony Thompson - July 2, 2008

This was easy to debunk on it’s face. ‘cuz May 9th AIN’T considered Summer, is it? That pathetic fanboy better study a calendar next time – hahaha!

97. Jordan - July 2, 2008

Plus, recycling lines from Trek 2 prob. wouldn’t happen, and the score for Treks 2 and 3 was identical save some different scenes, so a Trek 2 & 3 score “combined” would only sound like the same score.

98. Spocko - July 2, 2008

I don’t care if it is fake, I got excited just reading it!

99. Green-Blooded-Bastard - July 2, 2008

I’m glad it’s a fake, because I wasn’t impressed with it after reading it. I don’t expect to see a trailer until at least September, and knowing JJ, his trailer will be a lot more grandiose than what I read of the fake.

100. Uncle Rogi @ Denali - July 2, 2008

That surely has to be the most horrendous sounding possible teaser trailer ever.
Whoever tried to blag this one is either a player who has never seen anything Trek or thinks that we are bloody gullible.
How awful.
My 2 year old could’ve written a better teaser.
Can’t wait for the next real teaser.

Do not waste our time again you blatant amateur!

101. CanuckLou - July 2, 2008

Thank you once again Vreenak for setting us all straight!

It does sound cool though.

….the adventure continues…..

102. [The] TOS Purist aka The Purolator - July 2, 2008

I’m glad that it’s a fake…it sounded really lame and cliche, and I can just hear the non-fans groan at it in the theatre…

Abrams is no genius, but I don’t think he’d be stupid enough to make a trailer as dumb as that. He seems like he’s making real strides towards hauling in the non-fans (to questionable effect), starting with dropping the lame, over-used “OMG SUCH A GRAND EPIC OF IDEALISTIC PROPORTIONS” mindset that most people frown on. I mean, come on, even I want to slap a fan when I see people sign posts with:

“The Human Adventure continues…”

#102 TOS purist

I’m of the opinion he doesn’t have to be a genus… he just has to deliver. And having non-fans attend is a bad thing?

Anthony Pascale.
I suggest a “teaser” writing/description contest. We all don’t have access to the video equipment to make one.. but most of us here can spell and put together a coherent thought.
Two categories… earnest and humorous.

What do you think?

Since this afternoon CinemaBlend has added this final sentence to the “your guess is as good as ours” disclaimer:

“It does seem however, like TrekMovie’s sources may be the real deal, which makes the above a probable fake.”

106. Kirk, James T. - July 2, 2008

apparently the next trailer is just a massive shot of Shatner’s face, the screen fades to black as the TJ Hooker theme is played and the word’s “He lives!” then a brief flash of JJ Abrams with his thumbs up.

107. Viking - July 2, 2008

A friggin’ Star Wars fan just trying to bait us again…….*HARUMPH*

108. Izbot - July 2, 2008

Glad its just a fake. I was *not* impressed. More of a *yawwwwwnnn*.

109. Ed - July 2, 2008

It sounded like a great idea but until I get offical word from Vreenak that the next trailer is real then I will believe.

110. The Last Maquis - July 2, 2008

IT”S FAKE!!!!! Geez!!! They Said it was Fake from The get Go, People!!!

I was kinda Excited, but then thought, “WHY?” it’s not Real…….But I knew that BEFORE I read it. Oh and I’ll Just Copy right Words For no REASON®
I hope that’s Cool®? Maybe I’ll Steal Someone else’s Identity Too®, or Turn my posts into SEA chanty’s® or have a name That sounds Like a Fruit®, but then talk Like a “Vegetable®” There’s only One Zai, by the way, but Heywood, and Trekbama your names Are really Pimp though………why the Hell Am I writing right now?®

JJ should add Vreenak’s line at the end of the credits of the movie. That way, it will be more related with the experience we are having this year.

XDD

Hey boborci, it turns out that all you have to do to drive us Trek fans into frenzy is to type up a trailer for us here and we’ll lap it up. It could save Paramount a few bucks!

I think it really shows how desperate we are all getting for any little scrap of legitimate media from this film, maybe its a diabolical plot to kill all the older trek fans by making their heads explode with anticipation before next May…

Anthony, how about you run a competition to see who can write up the best description of a trailer!

113. m. c. - July 3, 2008

- Hey….where is the countdown to THE NEW STAR TREK TEASER TRAILER…???…..

114. Lancelot Narayan - July 3, 2008

After finding out it’s a fake, I re-read the discription. I can’t stop laughing.

115. Papa Jim - July 3, 2008

JJ can’t you give us something? Please throw us a bone!

116. Izbot - July 3, 2008

This “fanboy wetdream” fake trailer is exactly what JJ and team, I would think, would *not* do. This type of trailer would appeal only to the diehard fans who would ‘get’ all the references. Too elitist, not broad-reaching. My guess is the actual trailers will be unlike those of any Trek trailers we’ve seen before. No repeated dialogue from other films, no predictable musical cues — and especially no cornball 70’s-esque narration.

“(special effects are mind-blowing)” >squeal!<
Yeesh.

#116—I understand what you’re saying, but I think they can have their tranya and drink it too.

There is no reason a trailer with an obvious objective of appealing to a broader audience could not also contain a nugget or two that acts as the “fanboy reach-around” we’re all sitting on edge for. It certainly shouldn’t be the focus of the trailer, but a little something that only the old-school fans would pick up on wouldn’t hurt Abrams’ two-front PR campaign on bit, IMO.

In fact, I would say that Nimoy’s voiceover in the first teaser was, in principle at least, in the same ballpark.

118. Entropy - July 3, 2008

the thought that excited me the most….the thought of TWOK”esque” music.

119. S. John Ross - July 3, 2008

#117: Absolutely. The thing about fan-service is that you can pack a trailer wall-to-wall with it and (A) the broader audience need never notice it, let alone be distracted by it or confused by it (B) the trailer gains not a second of running time and (C) the hardcores are pleased.

It’s one of those rare and wonderful instances where you can, 100%, have it both ways, since fan-service can be utterly unubtrosive and invisible.

120. Captain Robert April - July 3, 2008

SHOW US THE DAMN SHIP ALREADY!!

121. Arthur Simone - July 4, 2008

Damn!! Here in Brazil we can’t wait for a new material from the new movie… Another teaser, a theatrical trailer, a new poster, whatever…

122. ARGTREK - July 4, 2008

Give us something !!!!
Can´t wait no more. Now going to hibernation chamber for another ten months… see ya

123. Jack Burton - July 7, 2008

Of course it is a lie. The Enterprise was built in dry dock above earth, not on the planet. And now that I’ve geeked myself, I could also point out that whoever he is he’s insane. First Contact was complete garbage. The fact that he was excited about it proves his madness. Sounds like Vegan Choriomeningitis to me.

124. Steve (Trekdude) - July 9, 2008

Lets face it, we are all axious about the new movie, and can’t wait to see it. I really don’t want too much to come out too soon and ruin the hype. Its happened before, which has killed movies. I think the first trailer came out way too soon. next trailer shouldn’t come out until sometime after Thanksgiving.
