Star Trek Trailer Warps Into [Some] Theaters November 14, 2008

by Staff , Filed under: Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

The wait is over– the new Bond film Quantum of Solace premieres today and it comes with a little extra bonus in the form of a trailer for the new Star Trek movie. The Trek trailer will be available online next week, so until then you have to go to the theaters (where it should be seen anyway). We have a summary of trailer news and Bond facts below. [UPDATE: Emails and comments from TrekMovie some TrekMovie readers indicate that not all theaters showed the trailer at the Thursday midnight showings]


Trailer facts

Trailer links:


Come for the Trek, stay for the Bond
Trek is in front of the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. The film opened two weeks ago in the UK and last week in other markets and is already a global hit with over $160 Million in sales so far. It has been getting mostly good reviews, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 72%. Bond is a good fit for Trek as it is a venerable franchise that also recently went through a reinvigoration, and recasting with the 2006 hit Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig as the new Bond in an origin story. Before that film came out, some hard core Bond fans made news complaints of the change, even down to his hair color, all of which seems forgotten now.

There are actually a few Trek/Bond connections. Our resident ‘six degrees of Trek expert’ and Memory Alpha editor Chuck Trotter put together a list:

And who can forget the Julian Bashir, Secret Agent holonovels seen and referenced in the DS9 episode "Our Man Bashir,"

Did you see the trailer?
If you have seen the new trailer, don’t be shy. Tell us what you thought below. Also of interest, what did your friends think, especially non-Trekkie friends and family. What was the crowd reaction? And this is a good time for some of you lurkers to join in on the fun.

NOTE: there have been some reports that some theaters did not have the trailer, if you went to see QoS and it wasn’t there, please note the name of the theater, city and show time.
UPDATE: It is clear from comments and emails that the Star Trek trailer did not appear at some midnight showings. It is hard to judge what share had it, and it isn’t clear if this will change for the Friday-Sunday showings. TrekMovie will continue to look into this, but it may be worth calling ahead to see if your local theater is running the trailer.



1. Jote - November 14, 2008

Ok, now where’s the ShakyCam [TM] version?

2. startrek4life - November 14, 2008

Showplace 16, Naperville, IL at midnight show did NOT have the trailer. I was so pissed! But QoS was awesome nonetheless.

3. raulpetersen - November 14, 2008

i cant wait till monday its killing me!

4. Gavvo - November 14, 2008

I’ve posted this before…but again here anyways

Mississauga, Ontario

midnight screening @ AMC Courtney Park Drive

no trailer was attached

5. Sogh Ho'neH jorDe' taI-VamPyr - November 14, 2008

Makes you want to go see 007. I didn’t even know that the new 007 had the first movie. Now it is the second one.

6. The Last Maquis - November 14, 2008

Come on Youtube.

7. Tripper - November 14, 2008

Dobie Theatre UT campus Austin Texas, no trailer attached. Only one trailer shown, it was for Valkrye

8. Fwise3 - November 14, 2008

Just got back from QoS… WOW! I’m extremely impressed with the style and uniqueness of the cinematography of the shots shown in the trailer! The crowd seemed completely unaware that it was Star Trek until he said “James Tiberius Kirk!” And afterward, the crowd was very silent… I’m hoping that’s a good sign! Why can’t it be May 8th?

9. dav - November 14, 2008

What track from Children of Dune was used in the trailer?

10. Remington Steele - November 14, 2008

I agree with my esteemed colleague at #1….

….Where’s the Shakycam.

I’m too impatient to wait until Monday.

11. Aragorn189 - November 14, 2008


My sentiments exactly.

12. Sxottlan - November 14, 2008

I’m actually planning on calling the theater where I’ll see the movie and asking which screenings will have the trailer.

They’ll probably tell me all of them will, but there have been times in the past when they’ve said the same thing and that wasn’t the case.

13. Littlenatey - November 14, 2008

The trailer was very fast paced. I can’t wait to be able to watch it over and over again on Monday!

Lowes @ Universal Studios Citywalk (Orlando) didn’t have The Watchmen trailer though. I was a bit miffed about that.

14. John Ozdundar - November 14, 2008

Toronto, Ontario

Paramount Toronto (now known as the Scotiabank theatre) also had no trailer attached to the 12:01 show.

However I was warned early that there would be a good chance of being the case. It was a digital “print” and wasn’t scheduled to be attached according to the projectionists I used to work with.

There was a 12:10 show too in 35mm… so maybe that one had a copy on it’s print. Anyone seen it yet at all??? Anyone? C’mon Youtube!

Anyone? :-)

15. Mikey - November 14, 2008

I hated the images that have been revealed, but the trailer blew me away. At the end Nero is seen saying “The Wait is over” damn right its over…on May 8th…

16. Starfleet06 - November 14, 2008

I went to QoS (for a midnight showing) specifically to see the new trailer and was greatly chagrined as it was not attached…

What’s up with that?

QoS was awesome though so the blow was lessened.

17. Starfleet06 - November 14, 2008

The theatre to disappoint was: The Oriental Theatre. Milwaukee, WI

18. Gatortrek - November 14, 2008

Just back from Quantum of Solace. the Star Trek trailer was infront of our print, though the theater manager said they had four prints of Solace and only one copy of ST trailer. So you might want to check with management to be sure the showing you are attending has the trailer.

My thoughts on the trailer is that the images move fast, but as one of those who watched TOS when it first appeared i liked this trailer and it made me want to see more!!!!

19. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

Wow! i saw it. I thought visually it looked great. The Enterprise shots looked wonderful, and the Kelvin blowing up at the end. People in my theater didn’t really react until the kid said, “James Tiberius Kirk”. Man, Pine looks awesome.

20. Reign1701A - November 14, 2008

Hey guys I just got back from seeing the trailer and Quantum of Solace! The trailer is amazing. As others have reported, this movie just feels so epic. The special fx look amazing. There are a few quick shots of the Enterprise: one with its back turned to the camera zipping to warp…the other with the Enterprise rushing towards the camera front-on. From those angles, it looks like TOS Enterprise except with much larger nacelles, though its still very much familiar. The shot of the Enterprise under construction is of a similar angle to the photo released. Still looks a bit awkward, but I like it better after seeing it from different angles. The cuts were very very quick and I can’t wait til it’s released on the internet so I can freeze-frame.

21. Mac - November 14, 2008

I saw the trailer in Boston. The description’s given were right on, but it did not do it justice. I was totally blown away by how it looked. Definitely huge! The audience seemed stunned that it was Star Trek. It was the only trailer where no one talked during it…and even afterward. This is gonna be a kick-ass movie!

22. TrekMadeMeWonder - November 14, 2008

Ahead Warp Factor 4, Mr. Sulu!

I can’t wait any longer!

23. Reign1701A - November 14, 2008

Oh and may I add that I went with two friends: one Trekkie one non-Trekkie, but both of them liked it. The a good portion of the crowd (which was mostly high school kids and young adults) cheered after the Enterprise delta symbol came on the screen, and cheered more intensely when the words “Star Trek” appeared. Looks like JJ has successfully gained at least some mainstream-movie going audience-interest in this project

24. reinvigorated, reintroduced, & rebooted h69© - November 14, 2008

I just went to see the new Jazz Bonn in, of all places…… Lisbon, Portugal. And guess what the F?

NO new star trek trailer!!!

nah i am just kidding of course. it’s old h69 waiting it out in midwestern united states colorado.

i am excited SO dont spoil it for me. or maybe DO.



25. Adam - November 14, 2008

Went to the midnight show in Mississauga, Ontario Canada WITH A SMUGGLED IN VIDEO CAMERA to be the first eagle eye for the trek movie crowd – but, while the trailers for The Spirit, and Valkyrie were amazing, there was no Trek Trailer attached.
Having all your friends and fiance laugh at you over Jack white and Alicia Keys… priceless

26. Gibnerd - November 14, 2008

just got back from the 12:01 showing at Showcase Cinemas in Ann Arbor, Michigan. While there were 2 screens showing midnights of Bond, mine DID NOT have Trek OR Watchmen trailers. So pissed. I still wanted to see Bond, but I’ll tell ya I was the only guy sitting there wearing a Star Trek t-shirt all grumpy when the MGM lion came on.

27. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

My favorite shot is when the camera was going through white Enterprise corridors, and you hear the familiar Red Alert klaxon. I got chills.

28. Devon - November 14, 2008

Did ANY cinema in Canada show it?

BTW, I have something to offer from Moriarity at AICN. Just had a chat with him.

This seems to be something that isn’t surprising if some aren’t seeing it. Apparently there isn’t a completely guarantee a particular theater or chain will show certain trailers, especially when the trailer and movie are from two different studios. Some screens may show trailers, some may not. Some chains may make deals to show a particular trailer.

In fact, there were some reports of NO trailers being shown before Bond. He mentions that isn’t uncommon, especially with midnight showings.

So I would definitely check ahead with your local cinema, maybe find out where it’s at.

29. Daniel Broadway - November 14, 2008

I went to Rave in Huntsville, AL. No Star Trek trailer attached. My wife and I were so pissed. That’s the whole reason we went.

Why do they have to wait until Monday to put it online? Just put it online Friday.

30. Dipling - November 14, 2008

When will we see this trailer in Europe and in front of what movie?

I would like to know that.

31. Daniel Broadway - November 14, 2008

Oh, and Rave also showed the OLD Watchmen trailer and not the new one. What is up with all these theaters showing the wrong trailers?

32. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

I got Trek, but not Watchmen. We had to sit through that crappy Wil Smith movie trailer twice, and Jim Carrey,

33. Devon - November 14, 2008

Well, I guess the trailers fall under the IDIC thing.. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

34. G-Boss - November 14, 2008

Here’s hoping that someone will be posting a youtube copy sometime today.
#30- I thought that Quantum of Solice was supposed to have the trailer in Europe beginning on Sunday???

35. unicronQ - November 14, 2008

I ended up calling the theatre here, and they said that they didn’t attach the trailer for time reasons. I’m considering trying to go to Omaha (about 90 miles away) to try to find a theatre that has it. I’ll probably call around to the theatres to see if any of them have the trailer attached (though I’m not sure if the people answering the phone would know).

36. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

Cool shot is when Kirk drives up over the hill on some hoverbike, and you see the Enterprise being built on the ground.

37. reinvigorated, reintroduced, & rebooted h69© - November 14, 2008

Broadway, you jackass…

THAT was the time to find the house manager and…

get an answer about when you can see the trailer. Hope that your hot wife gives it to you good tonight as consolation.

Dear Ms. Broadway,

IF ever there was a time for the mercy…………



38. Devon - November 14, 2008

About the YouTube copies, geeze people, can’t we wait for the FULL thing on Monday? I don’t know, but I don’t want my first impression to possibly be a poor recording of the thing. I think it completely kills the experience of it.

39. aries127 - November 14, 2008

Does anyone know if the big theater in Evanston, IL has it?

40. reinvigorated, reintroduced, & rebooted h69© - November 14, 2008

yes, aries127. the big theater in Evanston, IL has it.

thank old h69 later.



41. Jovan - November 14, 2008

People in the theatres… laughed at it.

I thought it was pretty cool. Gave some nice little hints at Kirk’s childhood and his motivation for joining Starfleet. All the spoilers about the trailer are true, but I think I missed the transporter effect by blinking. :-/

42. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

Yeah at the end like 2 people clapped at the logo, and everyone else was too busy looking at their cheap phones.

43. Jovan - November 14, 2008

I think I was the only one who cheered. They came here to watch a 39 year old secret agent survive absurd amounts of gunfire and they laugh at Trek? Whatever. They’ll see how good it is. :)

44. Enterprise - November 14, 2008

I laughed my butt off at the Watchmen trailer, cause it looked like all those bad superhero films from the 90’s with the blank actor stares and the goofy costumes.

45. reinvigorated, reintroduced, & rebooted h69© - November 14, 2008

now, lets be specific, Jovan Musk (for men)

were they larfing at the size of the mac? OR at the inadequecies of PC in the shadow of mac?

text me on the iphone


46. Paddy - November 14, 2008

QOS is out two weeks in Ireland and there was no trailer attached (obviously), anybody know what film it will be attached to???

47. LoyalStarTrekFan - November 14, 2008

23, that’s a good sign. Let’s hope that the new film is a huge success and that it becomes “cool” again.

20 and 27, the trailer sounds excellent. I won’t be seeing “Quantum of Solace” in theaters before Monday so I’ll look forward to seeing it online and in theaters sometime in the next week or so. The reviews of the trailer have been excellent so I have high hopes.

48. LoyalStarTrekFan - November 14, 2008

41, that’s not a good sign. Hopefully the advertising blitz in 2009 will change their minds.

49. Jovan - November 14, 2008

#45: I do not know what you are talking about.

#48: I think they just aren’t willing to accept Trek as “cool.” So what, anyways? We’ll be the ones laughing at them when they wish they had seen the midnight showing too. :)

50. S. John Ross - November 14, 2008

What I want is a website where, by city, I can look up a theater and see if they’re confirmed as having the trailer in front of QoS :/

I want to see QoS anyway, but if I go in expecting the Trek trailer and it isn’t there, that would be officially uncool.

51. Data - November 14, 2008

I went to the movie and there was no Trek trailer. :(

52. Devon - November 14, 2008

# 50 – The best you can probably do is call them.

Go to and type in your Zip Code. It will give you some theaters in your area. Click on one, then click on “Theater Info” and you should get a number.

53. Sci-Fi Bri - November 14, 2008

*sign* wnet to go see the trailer … and the didn’t have it attached. major bummer and it too 007 about 13 kills to get my spirits back up, but it was fleeting…

…guess i’ll go look at pr0n now…

54. Admiral_Bumblebee - November 14, 2008

I too have doubts that Star Trek in this form can be a success. First many – if not most – people see Star Trek as cheesy and laughable. People with pimps and greasy hear that that don’t have a life and run around in silly uniforms is what they associat with Star Trek.
And by bringing back TOS to the big screen they are backing up this theory IMHO.
They should have set Trek to a distant future without any references to any of the series or movies. They should have put it into a grim, dark future where there is no Federation, where the humans have to fight brutally for survival, where they don’t wear cheesy uniforms and the ships don’t look like fat ducks from behind.
Something even the biggest Star trek hater would have said would be cool and new and different.
They should have used the title Star Trek just tu lure Trekkies to the cinemas.

55. Diacanu - November 14, 2008

NONE of you got a Youtube clip up? NONE of you???

*Looks down nose, shakes head*


56. Khan Singh - November 14, 2008

I am, and always will be a tremendous fan of Trek… this was the most exciting trailer i’ve seen for a Trek film or any type of sci-fi film in decades. The Enterprise, btw, is gorgeous on screen. The released picture a few days ago of the ship was a terrible angle. This trailer shows us a head-on shot of the ship and it is breath taking. Serious cannon Trekies need not fear too much. It is very reminiscent of the original design, and makes the Refit, seen in TMP, a very plausible step up in design. Kirk is at his best. McCoy is humorous as usual. I happened to be amongst a packed theater of Bond goers who pretty much all cheered for this trailer at the end. Nostalgic moment in trek history for me.

57. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

54: Nothing you just described sounds “cool and new and different.”

The new Star Trek movie is on the right track. The early promotion efforts we’ve seen so far will get the media on their side, and that will have paid off in spades by May next year.

58. Devon - November 14, 2008

#54 – “They should have used the title Star Trek just tu lure Trekkies to the cinemas.”

Erm, that’s exactly what your *idea* suggests doing!

59. Kyle - November 14, 2008

No trailer for me either what a f***ing piss off. And Bond wasn’t as good as I was hoping either. Now I just have to watch it on my broken pixelated laptop screen.

60. Sean - November 14, 2008

Yikes, with all the reports of the trailer not being attached to QoS I’m not as likely to go see QoS. (it also doesn’t help that the entire QoS movie has already been pirated and is available on the internet)

61. James - November 14, 2008


That sounds horrible!

The whole point of Trek is that, unlike other sci-fi franchises, it is inherently optimistic. If you released a film like that, it would probably do well at the box office, but it would also be relegated to a little footnote in cinema history.

With any luck, this film will be distinctive and different, and give Trek the full-screen epic treatment it has deserved for so long, and arguably never fully received. Distinctive and different doesn’t mean a cross between Aliens, Pitch Black and Star Wars.

62. mark - November 14, 2008

go to

you wont be sorry

63. Sean - November 14, 2008

@ #62:

Great find! Thanks! Cool wallpapers of the Kelvin!

64. mark - November 14, 2008

uss kelvin

65. Andrew - November 14, 2008


66. catchupwiththesun - November 14, 2008

i got neither f****ing trailer. no watchmen, no trek. i feel betrayed

67. Quark - November 14, 2008

Bootleg please

68. Ed - November 14, 2008

Still waiting for a bootleg to appear…

69. cagmar - November 14, 2008

#62 – Spectacular. Things are definitely ramping up. How did you find that?? Could someone accidentally stumble upon it with a search after seeing the trailer ?

70. Sean - November 14, 2008

I think the West Coast is going to come through for us in terms of a bootleg trailer. It’s 2:30am there right now. Trailers started at midnight, movie started probably 20 minutes later. If the person stays to watch the entire movie they’ve barely left the theater by now. Hopefully we’ll see something in a few hours.

71. InSaint - November 14, 2008

To me the Kelvin looks more like the real thing than the new Enterprise.

72. mark - November 14, 2008

@69 hehe no, i just remembered the site and decided to look it up

73. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

70: I love that your post sounds like you’re giving us the play-by-play.

“Okay, it’s 2:35, so he’s probably walking to his car by now. Or maybe he took a taxi, in which case he might be a minute or so early. Unless he decided to walk…. The road surface is slippery, and the air temperature…….”


74. Robert - November 14, 2008

TRAILER! San Francisco… wow. WOW. Breathtaking. So rapid fire. Kudos to those who were somehow able to walk away with so many details in their head. The word is “GRAND”. There has never been a Trek film like this. It just feels so…. right. I’m sure there will be an ever shrinking minority that continues to turn their back on this movie, but most of us who see this trailer will be *moved*, and ready to Boldly Go…

Two things that really stuck with me: in the Iowa scenes, you can -oh-so-barely make out HUGE structures in the background, fading into the haze. And the space battles appear to rival the opening of “Revenge of the Sith”.

BTW, the audience went nuts. Some people w00ted when they saw “bad Robot”, they knew what was coming. But most of the audience certainly didn’t, until “James Tiberius Kirk!”. Then, all hell broke loose on screen, and in the audience.

Oh, and “Quantum of Solace” was great too! If you can, re-watch “Casino Royale” if it’s been awhile. The two movies are very tightly woven, more than I expected.

To Abram’s and The Team: EPIC WIN!

75. WannaBeatle - November 14, 2008

just saw it…I think I was the only one in the theater that was over the age of 12..every other person was looking like Hannah Montana fans (and the girls in the audience did too)

But, I saw the trailer and thought it was pretty good…very typical MTV style editing. But, it looks quite promising.

The trailer for Fast and the Furious got more attention that anything…what’s the deal with that (in my horrible Seinfeld impression)???

76. catchupwiththesun - November 14, 2008

70. us west coasters are out and getting home. i really expected someone from the east to have it posted by now.

this is messed. i was promised that trailer!

77. Diacanu - November 14, 2008

*Astral prjects next to the giy with the bootleg*

RUN!!! Pump your fat little legs!!! People are depending on you!!!


*Snaps back into body*

Y’get the feeling I’m getting impatient?

78. dave - November 14, 2008

Cinemark theatre in medford Oregon didn’t have the trailer before the midnight showing of bond. This is not the first time the local Cinmark theatre has not had a trailer before a movie that they were supposed to. Did anyone else experience a cinemark owned theatre that didn’t show the trailer?

79. catchupwiththesun - November 14, 2008


i was also at a cinemark. in ca.

80. Spock with a Crowbar - November 14, 2008

12:01 Showing in Portland, OR at Lloyd Cinemas also had no Trek trailer.

What the hell is happening? Why do so many theatres not have the trailer attached to the QoS film?

81. Robert - November 14, 2008

Oh, that’s Century Theater on Market St in San Francisco. Two nearly sold out midnight showings of QoS. Don’t know about the other theater, but Theater #5 definitely has the trailer attached, along with Will Smith’s weird 7 Pounds, 2012, The Spirit, some pretty cool Nic Cage thing (Knowing, I think) and at least one other I’ve already forgotten. If the audience laughed at anything, it was 2012 (tsunami hits the himalayas… har har). No Watchmen, boo.

82. shadow - November 14, 2008

Wow, that trailer… it was just as intense as the entire movie following it. After I saw that, my mind was just stuck there processing everything i saw. It’s mostly a blur honestly. All I know is that it looked amazing, the moment the child said, “Jame Tiberius Kirk” everyone in the audience started to cheer wildly (even if they had no idea who that was). The Enterprise looked amazing in motion, but I haven’t decided if I like the design yet. All I know was that the Enterprise and the Kelvin looked visually stunning and way more fluid than any other Trek ship I’ve seen before (including the Enterprise-E). I honestly think this is going to be the greatest Trek Movie yet, just by the sheer intensity of this trailer.

Wait there was a Fast and Furious Trailer? I think i completely missed that because I was processing everything from the Trek one…

83. Diacanu - November 14, 2008

*Pacing furiously, coffee cups and cigarette butts strewn everywhere*

Come on…come on….damn it…come ON…..

84. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

To those (lucky bastards) who saw the trailer:

Did the Enterprise and Kelvin, in motion, move like the huge hulking ships they seemed like in the first 6 films, or were they whizzing around like they did in the TNG/DS9 shows?

85. tony pieta - November 14, 2008

sigh…. I got up at 5 AM in the hopes of seeing this before i went to work. now i’m going to end up spending my entire workday endlessly refreshing this page looking for even a crappy copy.

86. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

I need a link! oh God please please please, some one break the law and sneak out a copy……


its getting cold, so cold……

87. Robert - November 14, 2008

#84 – honestly, to me, the clips were few and very short… I couldn’t tell you. It appeared to be a very crowded, intense battle. But hard to judge the speed when you’re only given 15-20 frames!

88. Ed - November 14, 2008

I don’t think filming a trailer is breaking the law. You bought a ticket for a film, which came afterwards. Also the copyright/piracy warnings don’t start until just before the film.

I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed that they holding off on posting the trailer onto the website. This means potentially thousands of people could see a reduced quality bootleg instead. Not really the best representation.

89. Quark - November 14, 2008

#88 – Exactly. And why not put the trailer with QoS in Europe too? Hell, we’re able to see the movie earlier as well.

90. Robert - November 14, 2008

Speaking as the guy who first video’d and uploaded the trailer for a certain highly anticipated space opera prequel about, oh, 10 years ago exactly, let me tell you… it *is* considered breaking the law, and it’s not worth the trouble. Believe me. (signed, “Scorpio”)

91. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

#87: THAT quick? Well, I can see how that’d be hard to follow… :P

I’m sure there’ll be a frame-by-frame analysis as soon as even a 320×240 cell-phone video is posted online, but hell… even 20 frames is 19 more than we’ve seen of the old girl so far. ;)

92. Ron Burgundy - November 14, 2008

Eddie Murphy

93. MiniKirk - November 14, 2008

Need trailer now….please???

94. Diacanu - November 14, 2008

Let’s see….the bootlegger will just be catching a taxi by now, he has to get home, get it out of his camera, into his computer, get anal retentive with his editing software like they always do, cuz they’re geeks, upload to Youtube, post the link, then this site will get so many hits, it’ll fuggin’ crash 5 times, I will have fallen asleep by then, and i’ll wake up around noon or so, the site will crash again, the clip will have been taken down by copyright cops, but it’ll be circulating around, and backups will be up, and the backups will crash this site….so…i’m looking at around 8 o’clock tonight until I can frigging see it.


95. MiniKirk - November 14, 2008

That sounds so bleak…at least until 8pm. I’m kinda obsessive about this, and lack the patience. I want it now! Make those lousy bootleggers bootleg faster! =P.

96. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Ich will den Trailer sehen…now!

97. Kerr Avon - November 14, 2008

Re 64: Thanks for that hyperlink. Also, just change the “2” to a “1” in that address for the second poster of the Kelvin. Then, substitute “Enterprise” for “Kelvin” in that address for a large size poster of the ship under construction (from the first trailer).

98. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

96: Damn. I was hoping Google’s translation tools were going to turn what you said into something hilarious, but nope..

Ich kann nur zustimmen.

99. Gary - November 14, 2008



100. voyager - November 14, 2008

Still nothing on youtube at all, where are these bootleggers!?

101. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

#96 Sorry, but here in good old Germany, the Trailer is not shown. Because QoS starts last week and theres no Blockbuster till “The day the Earth stood still” and I don’t believe they bring them before. Thats te reason why I’m stay here and wait like many others.

102. Todd - November 14, 2008

Keep it coming guys, especially reactions of the audience. I’m in Australia, so I’ll have to wait a few more days yet..

103. Rob - November 14, 2008

I’m in Oz too (#102), I guess we’ll get to see the trailer *after* the movie opens!

104. gohan - November 14, 2008

3:17 am PST…still waiting

105. Tanner Waterbury - November 14, 2008

COME ON BOOTLEGGERS! (Sorry JJ and company, I cant wait)

106. Quark - November 14, 2008

#105 – Sorry? They should have put in on the net as fast as they could. Everyone of us is going to see the movie anyway.

107. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Six cups of coffee und ten cigarettes, now it’s time. Bring the Bootleg online…hurry…Mr.Bootleger!

108. Resident nEvil - November 14, 2008

103: Same here! Who woulda thunk it… Australia.. Trekkie capital of the world. ;)

109. Tanner Waterbury - November 14, 2008


110. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

so…. as we wait for Mr Bootleg, anyone who has seen it got any comments, or surprises that they saw in the trailer?

anything? i need my fix

111. tom - November 14, 2008

we saw it at the arclight here in hollywood. the audience reaction was great. they loved it. was cool to hear the reaction when they catch that it’s star trek. it looks amazing. not like any of the other flicks. big. expensive. like a real f-ing movie. can’t wait.

112. capt mateo - November 14, 2008

Someone must have kidnapped the bootlegger!!

113. Kerr Avon - November 14, 2008

Well, I am an Aussie Blake’s 7 fan! :-)

114. Kerr Avon - November 14, 2008

Well, I am an Aussie too but I am more of a Blake’s 7 fan! :-)

115. Todd - November 14, 2008

not sure if i want to watch a dodgy bootleg first..must wait for the HD versions..!

116. Mike - November 14, 2008

111: Did you see it in the Dome? I’m worried the auditorium I’m seeing it in won’t feature the trailer.

117. Luke Montgomery - November 14, 2008

saw it in san francisco… very, very cool. Huge scale. the opening scene with young Kirk rocks.

we’ve never seen anything like this in all the years of trek.

i just hope i don’t get hit by a bus or fall victim to some fast-acting cancer before it comes out next summer.

I have 5 months to live? darn. can you make it six?

118. Prentice of Borg - November 14, 2008

No trailer at the 12:30 showing at Arclight in hollywood. And QoS was ok, Casino Royale was way better.

119. Tanner Waterbury - November 14, 2008

@ 117

Weird! Ive been having those thoughts too. Hoping that i dont die before XI comes out.

120. Luke Montgomery - November 14, 2008

@ 119

just take your vitamins and wear a bike helmet to bed.

121. gohan - November 14, 2008

cmon bootlegger…man even a camera phone would vid might work for me right now

122. gohan - November 14, 2008

anyone think a quantum of solace telesync copy would have the ST trailer as well?

123. Red Spar - November 14, 2008

@117, If you die I am sure God can get you a bootlegged copy.. ;) Unless you were a bad person in which case Satan will force you to watch Nemesis over and over as eternal damnation

124. Mike - November 14, 2008

122: No. Trailers are usually the last thing assembled for a movie and done on-site at theatres.

125. Kerr Avon - November 14, 2008

RE 123. LOL! :-)

126. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Unbelievable, every Trailer goes faster to youtube, than this. Mr.Bootlegger come on, the whole world wait for it.

Oh, I believe my Englishteacher of the past kill me, if he read this. :oD

127. Ed - November 14, 2008

Still waiting… :(

I’m in England and saw Quantum of Solace last week. It was alright.

Went to sleep last night thinking that when I wake up at 9am (GMT) I should expect to see official trailers on the web. There’s nothing :(

…. :(

128. - November 14, 2008

German webside dailytrek is reloading youtube and this page since five hours now every ten minutes, just to get this freakin trailer.
Master Yoda sais, “Annoying as hell it is.”

129. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

on a different topic before we all kill ourselfs the new Watchmen trailer is really good. im loving the philip glass, gotta love koyaanisqatsi

130. Not Quite Lucid - November 14, 2008

Well, fortunately I did see the trailer last night. ‘Twas amazing. Wish it was online now because I am dead tired but my excitement is keep the adrenaline going.

131. Captain Cannon - November 14, 2008

How dare you compare Star Trek to Bond? Bond is way better than Trek!

132. Tox Uthat - November 14, 2008

A stupid shoutout to #39 and #40.

I’m in Skokie, hope to see you at some point.

133. Sarah - November 14, 2008

I’ll wait till Monday until it’s on the web.
None of the movies currently shown is interesting enough for me to move behind to a movie theatre only to see a trailer. I’d watch a Pegg movie but only a British production. That’s more along my line of taste. Pegg is terrific. American movie writers are not so terrific. So… I can wait. I hope it’s going to be good though.

134. Brett Campbell - November 14, 2008

“who can forget the Julian Bashir, Secret Agent holonovels seen and referenced in the DS9 episode “Our Man Bashir”?

I can!

135. Kelvington - November 14, 2008

If you are going to see the Bond film, you might be disappointed. It was only so, so. They gave most of it away in the trailer, which is sad. What to expect? More roof jumping, more running through buildings, some one fire, and very little humour.

As for the Trek Trailer, they don’t put trailers at the beginning of press screenings, ever since the great popcorn throw during the Aliens Three Trailer all those years ago…. EEEBBBEEERRRRTTT!!!

136. CommonSense - November 14, 2008

AMC 30 Yorktown, IL


137. Daniel Broadway - November 14, 2008

It is terrible how many theaters are not showing the Star Trek trailer. I wish Paramount would just put it online already for those of us who missed out. I went to Quantum of Solace, and waited eagerly, and then nothing. No Watchmen, no Star Trek. Horrible.

At least Watchmen is up online. I don’t understand why Trek has to wait until Monday. Bob Orci, if you are reading this….see if you can’t get someone to put it up early. Heh. You probably can’t do anything about it, but it’s worth the try.

138. Kirk's Girdle - November 14, 2008



…..coming in 6 1/2 months

I’m going to check out a 10am matinee this morning and will definitely stay for Bond.

139. cugel the clever - November 14, 2008

No ST trailer.
Empire Trinity Theatre, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.

QoS sucks. Save your money and wait for the ST trailer online on Monday. QoS is nowhere near as good as Casino Royale. The Bond reboot lasted exactly one movie – now its back to the lame old Roger Moore days.

140. Christine - November 14, 2008

#35. I live in Omaha! I can try checking with theatres here, too, and let you know. :3 But if you find out, e-mail me: !

Gaaaah!!! The suspense is killing me! I gotta bug either my mom and dad or my best friend to go see Quantam of Solace with me. xD I hope Mia likes action flicks…

141. Duncan MacLeod - November 14, 2008

132. Tox Uthat – November 14, 2008

A stupid shoutout to #39 and #40.

I’m in Skokie, hope to see you at some point.

I am in skokie too! Myself and the girlfriend are going to see QoS on saturday morning in Old Orchard. She is a huge bond fan, and we are quite busy this weekend so im not going to call around. Hope the Old Orchard theater has it!

142. Trekmatt - November 14, 2008

Antony, any idea what film in the UK will have the Trek trailer attached to it?

143. JL - November 14, 2008

I cannot wait, this is killing me

I have all the confidence in the world this film is going to blow minds

144. Iowagirl - November 14, 2008


Yeah, but only with Sean Connery! :D

145. Quark - November 14, 2008

U.S. bootleggers are ignoring their function to society. This is killing me.

146. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Whether William Shatner sitting behind is Computer und is waiting for the Trailer like us. lol

Where is the Bootyleggy Bootleg Guy, who brings us, the Trailer.

147. - November 14, 2008

No bootleg out yet and i checked thoroughly :(

Maybe because not all theaters are actually showing the trailer in front or Quantum, even in the USA…

148. Driver - November 14, 2008

The Digital Bits has this to say about The Trailer –

“Now about that Star Trek trailer… wow. I’m still not quite sure what to think, especially having only seen it once. My understanding is that it’ll be available for online viewing on Monday morning… which is good, because legions of fans are going to want to analyze it frame by frame. By my quick initial impressions are as follows. First, this is not your father’s Star Trek. Not by a long shot. But it could… I think… still be Star Trek, at least in spirit. It’s just Star Trek on a much larger scale that we’ve ever seen it before. MUCH larger. This is big-screen, blockbuster, balls-to-the-wall Star Trek. Not better, but different… and EPIC. I suspect it will thusly have a far greater appeal to the masses than the usual variety. Will it be good? Will it be great? Will life-long Trekkers warm to it? I don’t know. But I am intrigued. We’ll see.”

Can’t wait to see it this evening.

149. John - November 14, 2008

Is the trailer playing with Quantum of Solace in Australia as well or only in the US and Canada??

150. arm - November 14, 2008

lets not forget the fact that you ppl went to an “advanced screening” you would have been lucky to even get a trailer. trek will show with bond a normal basis…you know, as in tonight?
so stop bitching if you didnt see trek at midnight.

151. DaveM - November 14, 2008

It’s not unusual for theaters to omit trailers for midnight showings or sneak previews. If its an “attached” trailer (and I have no idea how this works in a digital theater) it can be removed and restored in a matter of a few minutes before the regular run of the feature starts.

152. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

this is bullcr*p. im starting to get angry at the people who arent bootlegging now.

153. voyager - November 14, 2008

I think I’ve searched the entire internet now, it’s just not there.

154. Kirk's Girdle - November 14, 2008

Alright, time to brush my teeth and head out the door.

155. Viking - November 14, 2008

Given that, while I’m as big a Trek fan as anyone:

A) I’ve waited this long;

B) I’m not a big enough Bond fan to spring for a movie ticket;

C) I have a real life and family more important than any movie trailer;


D) I think I can wait until Monday.

156. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

errrrrrr i dont think your as big a trek fan as everyone if you claim C)

I wondered how long it would take someone to do that. :)

160. JT Kirk - November 14, 2008

This is shocking, Crew made the MLS cup final

on another note, i cant wait for the trailer where the bootleg aye!!

161. Julio - November 14, 2008


LOL… Rick Rolling always brings a smile to my face.

162. 3 days is to long to wait - November 14, 2008

never gonna make you cry……

163. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Dum di dum…Trailer…dam di dam.

164. Jorg Sacul - November 14, 2008

Saw the trailer… it felt like it was 5 seconds long, my brain couldn’t analyze all the imagery thrown at me because I was in total geek mode after I saw the Corvette. Looks like a $150,000,000 movie. Sweet!

The lady next to me says, “I didn’t know there was a new Star Trek movie coming out– I don’t want to wait for May, let’s see it now!” “I have to have it NOW!”

Oh, and the Bond film was good, too. ;-)

165. AdamTrek - November 14, 2008

Testing, 1,2,3, sibilance.

Why are my posts not showing up??????

166. Bennie - November 14, 2008

I saw the bond movie in Europe last week. I thought it realy sucked. Casino Royal was a good movie, but QoS is realy bad.

Still no bootleg……….sh*t

167. wiesniak - November 14, 2008

banda skurwysynów, gdzie jest trailer, czekamy tu już z wypalarkami

168. Bennie - November 14, 2008

Yes, in english please……

172. Sam - November 14, 2008

I was in Blacksburg, VA, and I am pretty pleased to say that as soon as the kid said “my name is James Tiberius Kirk” a hell of a lot of college kids in the theater started cheering. I’m pleased to know that there are still young people around excited about this. (I myself am a college student, so I guess I shouldn’t quite word it the way I did, makes me sound old, haha)

173. Quark - November 14, 2008

So many people who already saw the trailer, but nobody had the courage to video it with his cell. Pitty.

174. JL - November 14, 2008


“Looks like a $150,000,000 movie. Sweet!”

This is good to hear. Lovin’ the positive vibe and I remain very optimistic!

175. JT Kirk - November 14, 2008


176. JL - November 14, 2008


My bet is that by 1pm est there will be a bootleg posted somewhere… there are just too many rabid fans for this not to happen quickly…

177. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Hurry up…with the Trailer, in 20 minutes I’ll be at work. :o(

178. Julio - November 14, 2008


Of all the Star Trek characters, Captain Kirk is the one that I think most younger folks still feel is somewhat cool. He gets name-checked in hip-hop, and is usually referenced as a “butt kicking dude who’s smooth with the ladies.

I’m excited to see how the new guy does with a character that is – almost more than any other character in movies/TV – totally linked to a specific actor. I’m guardedly optimistic, although i’ll admit I’m a wee-bit concerned this is going to be Star Trek 90210.

Actually, another character I’m excited about seeing is Captain Pike… it’s cool JJ & Co. included him in this movie – apparently in a prominent role.

179. asswipe - November 14, 2008

Damn Americans too lazy to use their cellphones, Russians would have streamed the trailer live

180. Scott - November 14, 2008

Saw the trailer.

Went with my 15 year-old son to see Quantum at 11:59 last night. There was this cheesy “turn-off-your-cell-phone” mini-movie that they showed before the previews … only it turned out to be the Star Trek trailer. I didn’t realize it until the kid turns around and tells us his name, “James Tiberius Kirk.” (I had purposely not read the reviews on this site, knowing I had advance tickets to “Solace,” so I had no idea what to look for.)

After the opening chase, which I did not like at all (a car? a robot policeman? the Grand Canyon? Jumping out of a moving car like that and surviving?) the thing descends into chaos. The imagery was very big and fast, but that’s about all I got out of it. I wasn’t too keen on whatever subliminal images (they’re starting to come back to me now … Spock and Kirk being mad at one another, Sarek and Amanda and baby Spock, Spock as a sad little boy, Kirk being a puke, a row of shuttles, the Enterprise being constructed on the *shudder* ground, Uhura taking off her top and having a white bra on, Kirk bedding someone, some space ships, shiny, cheesy sets, McCoy making a smart remark about space, Eric Bana being pissy, the Kelvin…) imprinted on my brain. I was sort of intrigued by these enormous, indistinct columns of … something … rising up from the horizon of Earth into space. Not sure what that was about, but it looked “big” and cool. But more importantly:

The crowd at the theater was almost exclusively 20-somethings. My son and I were definitely in the minority. After the trailer, there was really no general reaction. The only reaction I registered was the guy next to me broke into his version of a “Star Trek nerd” voice, and babbled something he imagined a Trekkie might say. His buddy didn’t laugh at him. Neither did I.

I’ll go see the film. I’m not boycotting or getting all caps-lock about anything. But I’ve got to look at it as an alternate universe, or a tremendously expensive fan-film or something to buy into it at this point. It does look epic. I’ll give it that.

Oh, and Quantum was just okay. Casino Royale (which we watched again immediately before going to the theater), was brilliant, but this movie was way too frenetic (a common irritation these days with action films), somewhat pretentious in places (the opera scene), and had what was easily the ugliest location of any Bond film — I don’t know if it was shot in Bolivia, but wherever it was, man, what a hell-hole. Craig was great, but the direction, editing, music, and A-plot were a full step down from “Casino,” which is easily in the top 3 or 4 Bond movies.

Scott B. out.

181. Nick S. - November 14, 2008

I went to the midnight showing at the Rave Motion Picture Theater in Center Valley, PA and there was no trailer. There was also no Watchmen trailer, so this is all rather puzzling. I went to see the Bond movie and the trailer (since I’m equal fans of both) but it was very disappointing not to see it.

182. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

No, in Russia would you see the whole movie… lol

183. Marcus S - November 14, 2008

I urge anyone who have seen the trailer, to connect their positronic networks to the world wide web and extract from the visual memory this verdammter trailer. Bring it to us!!!

Sometimes I wish we trekkers were borgs. That would have rid us from this problem.

184. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

Verdammter Trailer, verdammtes Warten! ;o)

185. JL - November 14, 2008


You depress me.

186. Joseph Coatar - November 14, 2008

no, in russia the movie watches you

187. Tony Pieta - November 14, 2008

In Russia the entire movie would have been up as a bittorrent before the 1st frame was even shot!

188. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

I’m at work…Bye…

189. JimJ - November 14, 2008

#35 & #140-where are you from, #35? I’m planning to go to Sioux City tonight but don’t want to waste the trip if no trailer. #140-Could you please let us know here on the trekmovie website if you find a theater in Omaha that has the trailer? Anyone in Sioux City or Omaha that knows, please let me know!? Thanks a bunch!

190. JT Kirk - November 14, 2008

180 sounds like a grumpy old man lolololz omfg lololz

191. Zip - November 14, 2008

Didn’t see it yet !
some of us are hours and hours behind you guy’s,
like it’s 8:45am here, I’ll have to wait until 7:00pm when the cinema opens. but thanks for the Heads Up that some places may not be showing the trailer. ;-) I’m sure I ‘ll see it here first, but I going to QoS anyway.

192. asswipe - November 14, 2008

#187 – so why isn’t it up in Russia then, smart-ass?

193. Josh - November 14, 2008

The trailer was showed at my midnight Bond showing. A lot of the audience had no idea what the movie was…when they first saw the corvette and young Kirk. I did hear some groans though when they saw the robot cop…but people did clap when they saw the delta shield logo at the end.

194. Oberon - November 14, 2008

American cinemas (stop calling them theaters please, that’s where you go to see plays and musicals) sound really annoying. In England, I can’t stand hearing other people talk and whisper, I dread to think what it’s like with people cheering and clapping!

195. Julio - November 14, 2008

The “robot police” thing does sound especially horrid. I keep thinking they’re going to be Battle Droids

Roger, Roger.

I’m all for Uhura stripping, tho.

196. Norman - November 14, 2008

194 – yeah we munch loudly on popcorn and slurp soda too. I imagine the Brits get down on tea and crumpets in the ‘cinema’ and the atmoshphere is really snitty. sounds like fun!

Just kidding govna!

(PS – thanks for the colonies…)

197. Plankcore - November 14, 2008

I heard the cop was alien. :O

Hurry up, you piratey people you!

203. Sci-Fi Geek - November 14, 2008

come on people!!!! come out with the trailer already!!!!! im dying!!!!! KHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

204. Julio - November 14, 2008


LOL “Telesync”

I’m actually STUNNED there’s not a copy of this trailer up on Youtube yet. Considering all the Star Trek geeks (term of endearment there…) on the internetz, SOMEONE would’ve brought their overpriced fashion accessory iPhone to the “cinema” (govna) and bootlegged the thing.

I blame Obama.

205. Viper-1082 - November 14, 2008

NOT the trailer, but funny while you´re waiting!

207. Andrew - November 14, 2008

Hungary is waiting! :)

208. sean - November 14, 2008

Do you guys really want to watch a crummy handicam YouTube video? I’d rather wait for the official site or (as I’m doing today) pay my $7 matinee fee and see it on the glorious silver screen. It doesn’t hurt that I love Bond (the new one anyway, closest thing to Sean Connery we’ve had in a damn long while).

209. ensign joe - November 14, 2008

#208 yes, we do

210. Andrew - November 14, 2008

#208: We love crummy handicam YouTube video’s!

213. Mo - November 14, 2008

“Do you guys really want to watch a crummy handicam YouTube video?”

Oh yes, dear. We watched the series back in Sixties, when every up-to-date handicam would have had better Color and Sound. Star Trek is way beyond technical aspects…

Just wanna know if you get the feeling… been missing it for too long.

214. sean - November 14, 2008

#209, 210

Fair enough. I absolutely *hate* experiencing things that way. These trailers are specifically made to pop on the big screen, not on second-hand, shaky video cams that can’t even capture half of what’s going on.

Sorry. We’ve stumbled onto something I feel strongly about.

215. Sci-Fi Geek - November 14, 2008

Its so unfair only a select few have seen the trailer and the rest of the world has not!!! Only America gets it. Not fair!!!!

As an old logical friend once said, “The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of a few, or the one”

216. cpelc - November 14, 2008

As a sign of good luck…

a friend from school who works in a theatre got to see the movie wednesday night

she said she was blown away by the trailer. and needs to see the movie even though she doesn’t like star trek

yes…she…and not een a star trek fan

mission accomplished to reach out beyond target audience

217. tribble farmer - November 14, 2008

I can’t wait. Going TONIGHT. No way am I waiting even one day, this is gonna be my present to myself for getting my driver’s license today. (provided I pass -this- time.) xD

218. sean - November 14, 2008


What did your son think?

219. montreal paul - November 14, 2008

Anyone in Montreal seen the trailer yet? I’m going to see QoS anyway this afternoon… want to know if the Trek trailer is playing up here.

Funny enough.. i am going to the “Kirkland Coliseum” in Kirkland Quebec :)

220. me - November 14, 2008

I don’t think the trailer is already attached to any movie in Europe. So yes we have no other choice. We watch it on a handycam and then we watch all the things we missed on the HD video on the official site and the cinema (I will go to Bond anyway)

221. digger - November 14, 2008

I went to the 12:01 showing of bond at Regal Coldwater Crossing Stadium 14 in Fort Wayne IN no trailer very disappointing

A: Well, they ARE theaters over here.
B: We do not like the talkers either, but cheering and clapping and (God forbid) laughing are part of the experience. If you want numb silence, then watch the DVD at home.

223. Opcode - November 14, 2008

I am leaving to see the trailer. Should be back in about an hour. I am not planning to watch QoS at this time, perhaps tonight with my wife. Then I will have the chance to see the trailer again (supposing they have it in the theater I am going)…

224. sean - November 14, 2008


I understand, and I’d actually forgotten that it wasn’t coming out today everywhere. Still, if it were me in that position, I’d wait. I just feel certain things should be experienced as they were meant to. That may seem extreme and/or silly for a trailer, but I guess you could call me a purist in that sense. I hate watching movies on my computer, too.

225. sean - November 14, 2008


Paying just to see the trailer? Now here, my friends, we have a real fan!

I think so about the movie. That’s why I haven’t read any of these spoilers of the 20 min. Abrams showed.
But I don’t think so about a trailer.
A good trailer loses almost nothing even after seen it for the 5th time. For some movies I still watch the trailers, because they are so cool, while the movie itself was lame.

233. Fansince9 - November 14, 2008

Why don’t all theatres have the trailer? Are fans having to call their hometown theatres to ask them to carry it? Why?

234. sean - November 14, 2008


Because midnight showings frequently don’t even have trailers, and even when they do they aren’t always the same ones that accompany the regular showings.

235. me - November 14, 2008

“Why don’t all theatres have the trailer? Are fans having to call their hometown theatres to ask them to carry it? Why?”
Maybe some are more independent to others, or so small that they are not 100% up to date???

236. Kent - November 14, 2008

The reason is thus: when a trailer is supposed to play with a movie, two conditions exist.

“ATTACHED” – the trailer is physically attached to the print of the movie. This situation can only exist when the trailer and the film are from the same studio. As Trek is Paramount and Bond is Sony, this ain’t possible.

“IN THE CAN” – This is more often the case when trailer and film are from different studios. The trailer is placed in the package with the film, but it is at the theaters discretion whether or not to play it. For midnight shows I imagine it was just too much trouble to load it up in a timely fashion. I, for one, on e. 86th st. in New York, didn’t get to see it.

239. Scott - November 14, 2008

Re: 180, 190 and 218 – Yeah, my wife agrees that I can be a grumpy old man (I turn 45 next Tuesday) about things, but lessee, how do I respond?

By far, the two biggest “genre” interests I have — and they’ve consumed a lot of my time, money and thoughts over the years — are the original Star Trek and the comic book Iron Man. I developed a love for both back in the late 1970s.

While the run-up to the Iron Man movie had me excited and hopeful. Every image I saw, bit of news I heard, or interview with Jon Favreau I read had me thinking, “Yeah! This sounds like it’s going to be amazingly good.” And it was to me. So I’m not a completely hopeless crank who is unwilling to accept change of any kind. I voted for Obama, for Pete’s sake! I’m a hopeful kinda guy. Actually, I’m probably more like Dr. McCoy: outwardly crusty and cynical at times, but at heart, someone who is an optimist, holding onto a glimmer of hope that things can turn out well.

For me, Star Trek is a unique case. To compare it to Shakespeare or James Bond or Battlestar Galactica or Batman as many have done on this website … at some point the comparisons fall apart. I won’t explain why, but if you give it a little thought, I think you’ll see what I’m saying. The only thing that comes close would be Star Wars — an original, filmed entertainment entity that was embraced by millions, and took on a life of its own in the hearts and minds of fans. Now imagine if ten years from now, someone got the rights to re-make the original Star Wars trilogy. Now, I certainly like, but am not a huge fan of, Star Wars. But I would completely understand the 45 year-old Warsie of 2018, who fell in love with the original movie as a kid, and thought that a re-make, re-boot, re-imagining of his beloved film was something to be scrutinized with a finely honed, cynical scrute.

As for my son … he’s not a Trekker/Trekkie. He likes the show okay. I have not spent any time or effort turning him against the new movie. Quite the opposite. So, on the drive home, I asked him what he thought of the trailer without poisoning his mind first. He didn’t think it looked very good. But I think he and I both were turned off by the lightning cuts once the opening chase scene was over. He agreed with me that the chase was bordering on ridiculous, and just didn’t look like Trek. We laughed at how we both thought it was a “silence your cell phone” PSA.

Sorry to be so long-winded. Like I said, I’ll give the movie every chance to win me over. I’ve just been disappointed with more than I’ve been excited about so far.

Grumpy Old Scott B. out :-)

248. Ryan T. Riddle - November 14, 2008

Brian Tyler’s excellent score for “Children of Dune” is used in a lot of trailers; it was even used in “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.”

#243 I don’t know what’s worth the fact you linked to Rick Astley or the fact I actually watched the video for over 2 minutes….

I have no problem watching a bootleg. It isn’t as if they are selling it and losing money. Like most, I’ll download the HD version too.

The chances of someone getting a bootleg without being caught aren’t goof. In the UK Q of S was vigorously policed for pirates. I imagine they are twice as vigorous in America.

253. Trek in DC - November 14, 2008

I was so pissed last night, I couldn’t even enjoy the Bond movie because I was so angry. I went to the Regal theater at Gallery Place in Washington, DC and there was no trailer. I felt like walking out of the theater and asking for my money back.

254. Trek Nerd Central - November 14, 2008

#251. They’re counting on nerds like us to pay admission to Quantum of Solace just to see our precious little trailer. So I guess there is a money issue.

Was anyone who saw the Bond film last night as disappointed by it as I was?

Wow that’s a lot to proccess

From hell’s heart I stab at thee,
For hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee….

257. Sean - November 14, 2008

@ #251:

If you have a cellphone with a camera, you’ve got all you need. Movie theater employees don’t care if you’re recording a trailer, and even when I lived in North Hollywood, CA and went to the theater up at Universal Citywalk, there were no cops patrolling the theaters.

Even when they say “No Outside Food”, I’ve snuck in entire meals (two burgers, fries, candy, drink) into that same theater. The most I’ve ever seen was theater employees checking a movie for too many people. Nobody can sit on the stairs, fire hazard, and whatnot.

258. Ryan - November 14, 2008

I actually really liked the trailer, the police cop thing with a mask was very unhuman.. very unlike regular trek, but the trailer was very visually pleasing.

I guess the point that I’m really on the rocks about is the lack of moral undertone which is prevalent in most trek movies.

I am sure like most people who were pissed about the Transformers reboot we will all have its issues, but right now I’m more concerned about Star Trek being a financially viable franchise again, I’ll worry about the small details later.

259. Brando - November 14, 2008

lies lies!

260. AdamTrek - November 14, 2008

Couldn’t they have used original or Star Trek music from the hundreds of hours of Star Trek that exist!

I love music in general, and thematically a Star Trek theme or two would make a huge difference in the trailer. What’s the deal with that? (In a slightly better Seinfeld impression that poster above)

261. Quark - November 14, 2008

# 258 – Why didn’t you record the trailer?

262. Mo - November 14, 2008


No Star Trek theme at all in the whole trailer?

Can someone confirm this?


263. ucdom - November 14, 2008

I’m hoping MG is saving the most awesome Trek fanfare in the history of the universe for the movie.

264. Mark - November 14, 2008

Sounds like a lot of the theme is the idea of Kirk being more than he is and accepting the mantle of greater deeds (“your father was a captain for 12 minutes and saved 800… you can do better). I think that is a great moral.

265. Dennis Bailey - November 14, 2008

I saw it. It was remarkable. The Enterprise, as presented in the trailer, is wonderful.

It’s a short trailer, and I’m not sure what I can add right now to the descriptions you’ve already read. After the first few scenes establishing Kirk and Spock as characters with voiceovers talking about them (the one for Kirk I suspect is Christopher Pike) the cutting is very fast.

The precipice Kirk drives the car off of is pretty clearly a quarry – you can see the rectangular cutting marks on the rock faces and floor. In fact, there are shots when it looks like the huge “basement” of a missing building. The cop has a robotic face.

Bones’s line, I believe, is something like “Space is disease and darkness and danger and silence.” He doesn’t sound like he’s just complaining for the hell of it.

When the trailer comes online and people start frame-grabbing it I expect we’ll get a lot of information about various parts of the ship – bridge, corridors – but it all goes by real fast. The interior of the ship seems to be very white ala “2001.” The corridors are curved in cross-section, with flat ceiling and floor.

Nothing about this, though, looks like any previous “Star Trek” movie. There’s quite a sweep to it. If the trailer is any indication, it would have been really strange to have this called “Star Trek 11″ followed by a subtitle as if to indicate continuity with the previous ten films. This is just something real, real different.

The space effects – in very fast-moving montage, mind you – come across as dynamic and unlike anything in previous Trek movies.

And the scene where the Enterprise is up on scaffolding, under construction, and another very brief shot of it coming out of the light right into the camera – hang the details. It’s the Enterprise. And it’s huge.

The Enterprise being built on Earth makes for a great visual when the camera POV is someone on the ground – presumably Kirk, at least as the trailer is cut together – looking up at it.

The angle is breathtaking and the ship is majestic; it’s like looking at a huge monument as it’s being constructed. I thought of the Statue of Liberty, for no good reason.

As I said, the cutting-together of the trailer presents this as if Kirk is looking up at the Enterprise for the first time – it’s really damned effective at communicating what you would imagine Kirk might feel, much more so than a straight replay of the inspection fly-around in orbit could be at this point.

266. Anthony Pascale - November 14, 2008

next rickroll gets a ‘bannedforaweekroll’ from me…wont that be funny?

RE: star trek music,
there is a brief (1-2 second) Alexander Courage style sting at the end when they show the logo. I am pretty sure that part was recorded by GIacchiano

267. Ian B - November 14, 2008

No bootleg yet? Did somebody break the internets?

268. AJ - November 14, 2008

Once again,

The JJ marketing machine is putting the film at risk. To date we have:

1. The “Under Construction” teaser, which was linked to a film which underperformed (Cloverfield)
2. The website with the picture of the corridor
3. Geek mag photos
4. An unflattering pic of the ENT
5. An Intel site which has kinks in it
6. A trailer, touted to be attached to QoS which never quite made it to all theaters.


The geeks who went to midnight screenings of QoS are the core demographic who will walk out and discuss it at the watercooler, and start passing the word around that the new Trek is cool. QoS will be number one this weekend.

You missed that boat, guys.

Maybe we’ll have more kewl references to fake Japanese juice or LOST showing up on the Trek site soon. We need butts in seats next summer to keep Trek alive, and beyond this site, there’s no buzz out there at all.

269. John from Cincinnati - November 14, 2008


There are plenty of other options to see the sci-fi you just described:

Blood of Heroes

Like JJ said, now is the time to make optimism cool again.

To all those “I saw the trailer” – you’re so lame for not recording it.

272. LordCheeseCakeBreath - November 14, 2008

Bootleg please.

I don’t feel so bad about a trailer bootleg. It’s simply an ad for the movie.
I’ll see the movie 10x easy.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I truly love beef.


273. Dennis Bailey - November 14, 2008

#271: “To all those “I saw the trailer” – you’re so lame for not recording it.”

Sorry, dude – you’re so lame for acting like you’re entitled just ’cause you have an Internet connection.

I’m sure some dorky kid will shortly post a barely-viewable cell phone recording with awful sound for you to salivate over – but when you’ve watched that a thousand times you will not have seen what *we* saw by paying our way in.

274. dalek - November 14, 2008

#257 granted Sean, but look at the lack of youtube copies thus far, when lots saw the trailer last night. Fear of being caught, I believe, is the cause.

275. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

286. Ryan - November 14, 2008

For those who are asking why I didn’t CAM the trailer, it’s because the video on my blackberry malfunctioned.

I don’t really think that living up to the legacy of the father is a moral, I think it’s the desire of a child to supersede his parents, nothing abnormal about that, nothing grand about it either.

287. Ensign Jack - November 14, 2008

Wow I can’t wait to see this trailer! Youtube, Please if you can hear me, I’ll wash your socks for a week! We need that trailer now

288. rycpyż - November 14, 2008

Dennis Bailey – I don’t care for your “I’m better than you” attitude. I live in EU – here’s a piece of news for you: not everyone that has the “Internet connection” lives in the USA! – so I can’t just go to the Bond movie to see the trailer, otherwise, believe me, I’d go. And yes, I’d record the trailer for the masses as well, because I’m dorky. Whatever helps you sleep at night, bigshot

lets not move into politics people

I have contacted paramount about the trailer thing. I dont know if we will have an answer before close of business, but I will do an update if something comes back.

I do believe that there may be some issues with the movie and the trailer coming from different distributors and different theater chains. But right now there is no guidance beyond calling ahead or taking a chance. Sorry.

If you have zero interest in the Bond movie, then it may not be worth it, but the Bond movie is apparently pretty good

316. ensign joe - November 14, 2008

#310 Very cool Fred..

317. demonfafa - November 14, 2008

I think there’s a level of expectation here. When the teaser came out, a bootleg had made its way to the web two days in advance! It’s sad to think we’ve waited almost a year between that point and now… but I have to admit that I’m disappointed there haven’t been any bootlegs pop up on the web. Hell, I’m sure once they do, it’ll spread like wildfire and Paramount might ask for it to be taken down almost immediately. It’s a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t kind of situation.

A grainy youtube would satiate the heroin-withdrawl-like symptoms I’m feeling at the moment, but my brain tells me I’ll enjoy it more on the big screen or at the least, an HD widescreen digital version.

318. Kirk's Girdle - November 14, 2008

I just saw Quantum of Solace and I swear there were about seven frigging trailers attached to it including Angels and Demons, another Fast and Furious (puke), a Will Smith film called Seven Pounds, and Valkyrie, but no Trek.

319. Opcode - November 14, 2008

Ok, I am back from the movie. Lets just say that no spoiler I read here could prepare me for the trailer. Definitively breathtaking. I hope to go to see it again tonight.

341. DATA KILLED SPOT! - November 14, 2008

What if I were to tell you guys that someone I know recorded the trailer, in a movie theater, and just told me about it?

Should I

a) just watch it and forget about Bond tonight and convince him/her to post it on youtube as well?

b) keep it between me and him/her and let the rest of you pay 8 bucks to see it, or wait till Monday?

342. rycpyż - November 14, 2008

Did anyone notice that the Star Trek trailer is attached to Quantum of Solace?

There are Quantum torpedoes in the star trek universe. QoS is the acronym for Quantum of Solace. The homeworld of the Klingons is Q’uonoS.

Coincidence? I THINK NOT!

347. AJ - November 14, 2008



Congratulations on paying to see an ad. Congrats on your successful strategy of paying and then accusing a Trek fan on a Trek fansite of wanting to see it for free.

Some went to QoS last night to see it. They paid to see a long ad for Bulova watches, BMW and Smirnoff vodka, but didn’t get the Trek fix they paid for.

I would pay now to see it on the net. Like many, I will pay to see the film in the cinema several times, buy the Blu-Ray, some books and some ships.

But at least we should get the advertising for free. If a crummy version goes onto the net, it’s still advertising. It’s free, and perfectly apropos to the nature of Star Trek in the 21st Century

“I do believe that there may be some issues with the movie and the trailer coming from different distributors and different theater chains. But right now there is no guidance beyond calling ahead or taking a chance. Sorry.”

I wonder if this blunder will cause the studio to release the trailer online earlier than Monday. Seems kind of odd that they’d release the Watchman trailer online today as it debuted with QoS in theaters but not Trek. Maybe Paramount’s hands were tied by the Bond people (which is odd since Watchmen is being distributed overseas by Paramount).

I went to the 10 am showing of “Q of So” today 11/14 and in a most curious turn of events no trailers were shown at all in front of the feature. By the way, this latest installmant of the 007 franchise is certainly action-packed but as many reviews have indicated the story itself as well as the characters surrounding “M” and Bond are not well drawn.

377. Stiff Arsed Brit - November 14, 2008

can someone tell me how long the teaser is?

378. Scott - November 14, 2008

Go the the Movie Tavern in Atlanta, GA to see the trailer, as I did. The food is good, and the tickets, just $7.00.

Easy for me to say, but it’ll be worth the wait till Monday to see it on the internet. Dennis Bailey et al. are right that the insta-cuts make it almost sensory overload. Trying to remember what you saw is like an exercise in repressed memory recovery.

Just be patient a couple of days, and you can not only see the trailer in hi def on your computer, but go through it frame by frame, drinking in all the visual newness.

Scott B. out.

383. Darklighter - November 14, 2008

Just got back from seeing the trailer. I’m one of those uber geeks who show up just for the trailer and don’t stay for the movie. In fact, I’m one of those uber-uber geeks who call seven or eight theaters first to make sure they are showing the trailer after the recent rumors of many not atttaching the Trek trailer to Quantum. (By the way, several did not).

Trailer spoilers here on out:::::::::::::

Friggin’ unbelievable!!!! In a good way. Everything about this movie just screams epic. Flashbacks to little kid Kirk, flashbacks to little kid Spock, Amanda and Sarek, Pike doing the voiceover, Sarek doing a portion of the voiceover (I think???). Huge panoramic shots of Vulcan. When Chris Pine pulls into the frame on his motorcycle, it wasn’t Shatner, but it WAS James T. Kirk. Very hard to explain, but I’m blown away. The shot of Enterprise being built on the ground with Kirk looking on – wow. Really brings the shot of him watching it fall out of the sky in Movie 3 come full circle.

And the music! Pulse-poundingly great. And from what I understand that is actually from the movie’s score, so even better. I literally had this dopey grin throught the entire trailer, as the music continued to build and build.

Congratulations all around to the director, producers, writers, actors, and all involved with this film. I think you just made Star Trek cool again.

384. Of Bajor - November 14, 2008

I thought QoS was ather excellent. Granted, not to the same standard as Casino Royale, but splendidly awesome nonetheless.

I love the fact that Bond films are no longer cheesy. I like the dark moodiness that Daniel Craig portrays.

Another aweson Craig movie if you havent seen it is L4yer Cake.

I do sympathize with people looking for a bootleg – I’m looking for one too, to see it again.

391. sean - November 14, 2008


I think your observations are a little off:

1. The “Under Construction” teaser, which was linked to a film which underperformed (Cloverfield)

Cloverfield didn’t underperform. It cost around 25 mil to make and grossed nearly $200 million worldwide. It did so well, in fact, that the studio wants a sequel.

2. The website with the picture of the corridor

Why was that a failure? It was fun and occupied fans for a time.

3. Geek mag photos

Again, not sure where you’re going here. Those geek mag photos were reposted across magazines and websites everywhere.

4. An unflattering pic of the ENT

In the eyes of around 20% of the visitors here. The majority seem okay with it.

5. An Intel site which has kinks in it

I didn’t run into any kinks when I used it.

6. A trailer, touted to be attached to QoS which never quite made it to all theaters.

A decision that isn’t made by the people making the movie. In some cases, it’s the theatre. Plus, half of those complaining about the trailer not being attached went to midnight screenings, and as many have pointed out, midnight screenings frequently don’t have trailers/different trailers.

The publicity campaign for this thing JUST began. How can it have already failed? There’s buzz far beyond this website, especially with the footage screenings in Europe and the UK. I don’t see what these guys have done incorrectly.

#387: “When Chris Pine pulls into the frame on his motorcycle, it wasn’t Shatner, but it WAS James T. Kirk. Very hard to explain, but I’m blown away.”

I felt *exactly* the same way but didn’t want to post it because it was such a subjective reaction to a single shot – I thought other folks might not see it that way. It’s great to know that you did, too.

And yeah, the shot resonates (for me) with the eventual destruction of the ship in ST 3 as well as the drydock inspection in ST:TMP. I believe I read somewhere that Abrams remembers that drydock sequence as his favorite part of ST:TMP when he saw the film as a child.

396. Quark - November 14, 2008

I have called around my local theaters (Ft. Wayne, IN) and was told by Rave, Regal & Carmike, that they have two prints and they were told to put the Trek trailer only on one print of QOS. So call your local theater first and find what showtimes will have it.

You know, I woke up this morning and had some additional thoughts about the trailer to post and share here. But apparently because I didn’t record the trailer and upload it to the net, I find myself in the category of persona non grata and unwelcome here. So I won’t bother. Sorry, I feel bad for everyone who was hoping they’d see something on the net or otherwise by now, but I can’t believe how so many here have decided to turn something wonderful into something so ugly. I can’t imagine what some of you will be like once you HAVE seen the trailer, analyzed it frame by frame, and decide to pass judgment on the remaining 119 minutes of the film. Good luck with that.

423. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

I saw the trailer and now believe this is a reboot, pure and simple. I think putting Nimoy in it and having Nero go back in time is all just a bone to throw to the older fans like myself.

The thing that concerns me, however, is that Abrams and company take it seriously enough. I was thinking while watching Qunatum of Solace how great of a reboot Bond has been. Then I thought about other truly great reboots, like Batman or Battlestar Galactica, When I thought about what made them great, I realized it was a serious take on the previous work. A deadly serious telling of a familiar story. The trailer makes the new Star Trek look like a silly, fun, madcap romp in a campy universe with big budget effects. In other words, I’m worried.

I have to say that’s the first time I’ve seen anyone say that, that has seen the trailer. All the other descriptions are completely opposite. Basically saying it’s a serious looking bit budget action film. I think most reviews, especially those from Europe on the 20 minutes they’ve seen, are anything but “campy”.

On another note…..I’m SHOCKED there isnt’ a bootleg. Not just because I’d like to see it, but just because knowing the thousands of Trek fans out there that went to see the Bond movie specifically for the Trek trailer, and NONE of them recorded it and posted it?????

Since when has something this anticipated ever gone this long without a bootleg showing up??? Amazing.

A true classic. Every actor has their low point, and that was most certainly his.

441. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

What I will say for the trailer is that it is bright. And I mean that literally. The sets are brightly lit. The characters wear bright blue, red, and yellow uniforms. The few character moments they showed were either supposed to show that there’ll be comedy, or crazy action. The one real positive is that Quinto LOOKS like a young version of Spock. The quick scenes of Spock and Kirk as youngsters look like fan fiction, but they are admittedly very quick. They highlighted a lot of crazy angles and camera moves on people during action scenes. And the old uniforms in the new set look really out of place and may prove to be the hardest part to reconcile visually for true Trek fans. That’s really where the campiness comes from. The effects look great, but I honestly expect nothing less in today’s CG world we watch movies in.

442. Mr. AtoZ - November 14, 2008

445. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

“The trailer makes the new Star Trek look like a silly, fun, madcap romp in a campy universe with big budget effects.”

After reading what I wrote, it comes across a little overstated, but I’ll stand by it to a certain degree.

446. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

Am I the only one who thinks that Watchmen looks stupid?

447. Jay - November 14, 2008

441…. except i’ve heard that this movie is far less CG than most action/sci fi movies.

Abrams hates the overly CGI movies… like the Star Wars prequals. This movie, from all the reviews of the 20 minutes, and interviews with the production crews, is supposed to use alot more model shot effects for added realism.

I guess you didn’t feel that way from seeing the trailer.

Wish i could see it to see what you mean.

448. MC1701B - November 14, 2008

Okay, guys. Reality time here.

QoS is from Columbia and MGM. Star Trek is from Paramount.

An “attached” trailer is actually part of reel 1 of the print. Ergo, it was never possible for the Trek trailer to be “attached.” “Enclosed,” possibly, if there were some marketing agreement between the studios. Even then, that’s hardly a guarantee that the 17-year-old in the booth is going to actually attach the trailer, instead of putting it on eBay. :(

As far as all the Rave issues, as bizarre as it sounds, maybe the DLP version hasn’t made it to theatres yet.

lol I’m not upset, I’m just sick of seeing that fan wank trailer. haah

452. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

449 Dalek total agreement. Let’s you and I get together and throw water balloons at them

453. Radioactive Spock - November 14, 2008

On days like this with heavy traffic on here there should be a chat room for real time conversation on Trekmovie. Though I suspect Anthony would have his hands full moderating that. lol. Still…

454. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

Shots go by so fast, I couldn’t tell you if they were truly CG or not. They looked CG to me, and there was definitely CG elements to the ship shots, even if the ships themselves were models. The trailer was cut very fast except for the very beginning, and it never lingers on the ship shots. I could be completely wrong about the CG looks.

455. dalek - November 14, 2008

#452 lol yeah im up for that, phasers on stun, balloons set to sting

456. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

The theater I saw it in is digital.

457. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

Enough trailer description, now linky!!!

458. Jay - November 14, 2008


No problem…. i’m not saying you are wrong… .i haven’t seen it…. your review just struck me because it somewhat goes against the grain of the majority of reviews i’ve read out there.

It seemed to me that the most common theme of the reviews so far is that this seems to be the more “realistic” feeling Star Trek, and i would think that if the film were overly CGI’d, they wouldn’t be saying that.

But, those reviewers also saw the 20 minutes of footage and not just the trailer.

I hope it’s not overly CGI’d.. I HATED that with the Star Wars prequals. The CGI effects just are too perfect… .too clean. The old Star Wars movies look more real than the new ones ,which is an indictment of the FX. I hope the reviews saying this Trek films is the most “real” feeling film are accurate.

459. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

Good luck looking for links. Paramount will be all over Youtube today, as well as many other sites. They will most likely be all over anybody who actually posts a link before you can even click a link. But, like I said, good luck.

460. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

You gotta be kidding me!! Just woke up, and still no bootlegged trailer??

Friggin’ ridiculous, man!

Have they invented copy protection for reality????

462. the king in shreds and tatters - November 14, 2008

463. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

458. Jay

I took no offense to what you said. My view is based purely on the trailer. I am avoiding more in depth descriptions of footage like the plague.

I am honestly torn about this new movie. I have watched TOS since being a small child. It was the first thing I was ever a fan of. While I was a little young for the TMP in the theaters, I have very fond memories of seeing Wrath of Khan with my father. The old cast feels a little like family, and the new cast feels like they’re trying to replace my family.

On the other hand, I would love to see Trek be successful again. I was never as big of a fan of the Treks after TOS, but enjoyed the TNG show and movies. I really enjoyed Enterprise, but didn’t really have any connection to DS9 or Voyager.

So that lets you know the mindset I had going in. I’m definitely a skeptic, and the trailer didn’t assuage my fears. I truly am hoping to be surprised by this film, but am equally prepared to be disappointed. I don’t know how much of this I carried with me when I saw the trailer, but take it for what you will.

464. Odkin - November 14, 2008

Shatner Cameo!

465. krikzil - November 14, 2008

The trailer was attached to QoS here at the Harkins theatre in Phoenix, or at least for the print I saw. No reaction from my audience at all but then they didn’t react to any of the trailers. Diehard Bond fans who were there for that movie and weren’t interested I guess. Pine looked good. The trailer really does move fast so I can’t wait to be able to see it more slowly and really “see” everything in it. It looks expensive, that’s for sure.

466. Khan Singh - November 14, 2008

I can’t believe nobody has Tubed this yet… shocked.

467. Mr. AtoZ - November 14, 2008

464 Awesome, I was just thinking of that!

468. Pizza - November 14, 2008

Shatner Cameo reminds me of a very bad George Castanza

469. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

464 I will PHAZER you, I swear to all that is holy.

470. Jay - November 14, 2008

466 Me too….. I just can’t believe it’s possible the Paramount has kept a bootleg copy of this off the web.

Is it possible they had an arrangment with Youtube to screen any Star Trek related postings today for the bootleg?

471. TerPor - November 14, 2008

just watch and wait the HD trailer :)

472. Ricky - November 14, 2008

@464 – I have enjoyed Rocketman for years and have never seen this response until now. Priceless

473. MICHAEL - November 14, 2008

474. devon Richards - November 14, 2008

Just got back from QoS at the Scotiabank Theater in Toronto. No trailers at all for Trek in that theater, not just the one but all of them.
Theater staff had no idea what I was talking about when I asked.
Strange, that theater used to owned by Paramount.

475. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008

The next fake trailer link I will set my phaser on DISITNEGRATE IDIOT

476. THX-1138 - November 14, 2008

Somebody at AICN will have it and before Paramount can take it down, someone else will embed it. Just be patient and keep hunting.

And come back here and let us know.

477. For Those About to Spock, We Salute You - November 14, 2008


478. Anthony Thompson - November 14, 2008

No Star Trek trailer at Monticello 15. The manager said the policy is to only attach trailers for movies coming out within two months.

479. Bronto Dan - November 14, 2008


I want you to be in the next SAW movie

482. Khan Singh - November 14, 2008


laughing my a** off. and yeah, 479… not cool man.

483. G - November 14, 2008

Saw the trailer..

– Yes, very fast paced.
– The special effects? Fan-friggn’-tastic
– The scope, scale and magnitude definitely rival any movie I’ve ever seen in the past (Star Trek, or otherwise. They definitely brought Trek into the mainstream. I don’t think any non-fan would hesitate to go see it)
– The Enterprise.. VERY quick couple of shots, mostly from the front view coming straight at you. They weren’t revealing much there.
– Quick shot of Pike giving battle orders on the bridge
– Couple of quick shots of transporter effect and warp speed effect. Again, very quick shots that didn’t reveal much, but the special effects were stellar and very wild

The crew..
– Mostly quick shots, I believe the only dialog that was heard was from Scotty, and some quick exchanges (arguing) between Kirk and Spock.
– No Nimoy reveal (that I could see)
– The crew was familiar, but also (obviously) different.
– Quick shot of McCoy with a short piece of dialog (I almost missed it, because I didn’t recognize him at first.. I don’t know the context of the scene, but he appeared disheveled and somewhat.. nutty, for lack of a better word? His hair was all messed up)
– Nero: He struck me as an effective villain. First impression was that he was pretty bad-ass

Very fast paced, so all that was just from the top of my head after seeing it. I’m sure I missed some things. Just wanted to give everyone my first impression. To sum it up.. Exciting? You bet!! Different? VERY! Not your cookie-cutter Trek. My guess is, you have to go in there accepting the fact that traditional Trek lived a good long life, but that after 40 years, this bold approach is probably necessary (I mean, let’s admit it.. after 40 years, we’re all getting kind of sick of Trek TV and movies with the same old, “Shields down to 60%, shields down to 40%” or “We’re in a state of quantum flux, spacial flux, temporal flux.. flux, flux, flux”). It’s different and bold and big, and we should give it a chance. For years, new directors keep promising, “Oh, the next Trek movie will be like “The Wrath of Khan”, and they never deliver. It looks like JJ has at LEAST delivered on giving Star Trek new life, so I say, let’s give it a chance. 40 years of the ‘neat and tidy’ brand of Star Trek is a long time. We have to admit that it was getting very stale. Let’s give this new movie a chance and see where this goes.

484. the king in shreds and tatters - November 14, 2008

Did *anyone* in Canada see it?

485. WhatInBlueBlazes?! - November 14, 2008

483 — I can’t be even remotely annoyed by that. Well played.

486. Mr. AtoZ - November 14, 2008

# 486 get over it.

487. Mr. AtoZ - November 14, 2008

#492 they make a cream for that.

488. Chris Pike Fan - November 14, 2008

The trailer didn’t show @ the Thursday night showing I went to.

It did play for the midnight showing, and it was awesome! My two friends who don’t like Star Trek thought it was cool, and now want to see it.

489. Commodore Redshirt - November 14, 2008

The trailer IS showing at the MAJESTIC BAY THEATER in Seattle!
I’ll be at the 4:45 show. (The 7:30 is sold out and the woman on the phone said the 10:15 was very close to full too!)

Oh, and Odkin, I laughed until I hurt at the Nemoy “Bilbo” song!

490. rycpyż - November 14, 2008

#492, Commodore Redshirt: for the love of god, can you record it with you cellphone for the rest of us? I beg you, now

491. Michael Foote - November 14, 2008

I just called the Theater where I have had tickets for a week and they told me the trailer was not showing with any movie at their theater. This bites. I am wondering if it is because it is an all digital theater.

492. orgcaptainnemo - November 14, 2008

489. Commodore Redshirt

I can confirm that. I saw the trailer at the 12:01 showing of Bond last night. Have fun!

493. The Admiral - November 14, 2008

Just went to the first showing of QoS at the Brendan Theatre inside the Palms Hotel here in Las Vegas and no luck. :( QoS was good though! ;)

494. obamite - November 14, 2008


Just out of curiosity, if someone *did* post a link on here to a bootleg of the trailer, would you remove it? I ask because I find it hard to believe that no one on here who did see the trailer would have taken a video, which leads me to wonder whether someone may have already tried…

Just asking, just wondering, just waiting…

495. Odkin - November 14, 2008

Just doing my part to help Anthony fight piracy. Enough red herrings and maybe you guys will learn to be patient! Go see the thing as it is MEANT to be seen!

Just kidding. I’m looking everywhere for it too. But I probably won’t post it here as I really don’t think Anthony can condone piracy by illicit taping.

496. Paul B. - November 14, 2008

446. Jax Maxton – November 14, 2008
Am I the only one who thinks that Watchmen looks stupid?

Nope, there are at least two of us who think it looks stupid…cheesy…been-there-done-that…

As for Trek, I’m hoping for the best, but the trailer descriptions so far sound…well, wrong. Kirk racing around on a cycle, racing around in a car, fighting and grabbing boobs–um, sounds more like “Top Gun” than Trek. Still, I am extremely excited and hopeful that Abrams et al. will pull off an amazing new Trek.

And the new Enterprise is growing on me. It’s my laptop’s wallpaper now, and when I looked at it this morning I thought, “It really does capture the flow of the original.” Still skeptical, but very hopeful…

But no Watchmen for me.

464 – That kind of “joke” was lame a year ago; now it’s just pathetic.

497. Spockalicious - November 14, 2008

i still think Anthony is really Shatner…

498. Larry - November 14, 2008

@497: agreed.

499. Odkin - November 14, 2008

497 – the trailer description sounds so wrong that you had to click on an obvious joke link to satisfy your insatiable desire to see it?

BTW, if you are capable of doing so, you should actually try to READ the original Watchmen comics/graphic novel. If it seems “been there done that”, it’s only because so many have tried to copy it. All have failed. I don’t know if the movie will be good, but the trailer looks like they sure tried.

500. AdamTrek - November 14, 2008

#497 Spockalicious – November 14, 2008

God no. If that were the case, he would encourage “FIRST” because of ego.

501. Duane - November 14, 2008

I liked the trailer but if I were not a TOS fan I am not sure what I would make of it. Wish I could have seen it 10 times. So far I love just about everything we hear about the new movie, except for that busy, shiny new bridge. Here’s hoping it looks better when we see the whole thing.

By the way, the new Bond movie is a solid B in may opinion and worth seeing.

502. JL - November 14, 2008


” It’s different and bold and big, and we should give it a chance. ”


“It looks like JJ has at LEAST delivered on giving Star Trek new life, so I say, let’s give it a chance.”

Damn dude, I could not agree with you more. At least give it a chance and go see it when it comes out. If we hate it then we hate it. If we love it then we love it.

503. Michael Foote - November 14, 2008

Called a theater near where I live that also has QoS asked if they had the trailer. They said it was on at least one of thier prints. Then asked to talk to the manager, told her my sob story about having tickets only wanting to see the trailer and they didn’t have it where I had tickets and asked her how much to see just the trailer. She said come on by and she would let me see it free. Guess when Star Trek comes out, that is the theater I need to see it in.

504. Mikey1091 - November 14, 2008

Movieland of Coram first showing at 2:05 PM today did NOT have the trailer. I was extremely pissed off. But then again, I went for the movie as well, and I thought the new Bond film was great. So now I have to wait until Monday to see the trailer, which pisses me off to no end. I will be writing a letter of complaint to paramount and to Movieland of Coram.

505. King Anthony - November 14, 2008


I’m guessing they didn’t think it was worth it. If it was, you’d have seen it. Trust me.

Tsk, tsk.

506. Anthony Pascale - November 14, 2008

stop with the joke links, I am not kidding

And if you want to go see the trailer, go to the theaters. Any crappy webcam is going to be an unpleasant experience

507. Commodore Redshirt - November 14, 2008

And for those that ask…
No, I will not record and post the trailer.
I want to enjoy my experience and NOT be “That Guy”…

508. Drij - November 14, 2008

Just saw Bond and no Star Trek Trailer in Toronto. Bond movie sucks BTW.

509. j w wright - November 14, 2008

be sure to bring your cel phones, and upload that trailer footage for the rest of us who cant bear to sit through this mediocre installment of the bond series.

510. orgcaptainnemo - November 14, 2008

@ 506. Anthony Pascale

Are you going to delete comments containing links to the trailer? I’ve seen it in theaters, but I’d still love to see it again even if it is bootleg. For someone who can’t make it to the movies and wants to see it before Monday I don’t think a webcam experience is going to be unpleasant. Why don’t you let them decide how they feel about the experience instead of dictating it to them.


511. Spockalicious - November 14, 2008

500. AdamTrek – November 14, 2008

That’s exactly why he *doesn’t* encourage it. it would give others a sense of superiority. He wants others to feel inferior to him…


512. JL - November 14, 2008

Some of the “Trek” oriented links are funny — the Rick Roll thing has been done to death, I think most of us are sick of

513. JL - November 14, 2008

“Why don’t you let them decide how they feel about the experience instead of dictating it to them.”

Admittedly I do not know this to be fact, but I am willing to bet it’s because Paramount or someone affiliated with the project has made it clear to Anthony they would not condone “unofficial” footage in any form being posted (or links).

In other words, they’re holding him over a bag.

514. Spock with a Crowbar - November 14, 2008

As I posted last night, no trailer in OR.

As for QoS, I give the story a solid “meh” and the action an A+!

Remember the chase scene in Casino Royale? The one at the beginning that the rest of the movie never quite topped? QoS is like that from start to finish. It didn’t leave much room for the sort of cool plot that Casino Royale had. No cool gadgets except for the completely unnecessary touch screens during briefing and such.

But who cares? I went to see a Star Trek trailer and there wasn’t one.

515. - November 14, 2008

Guys, trust me – you do NOT want your first look at this trailer to be a crappy Youtube bootleg.


516. Odkin - November 14, 2008

Let’s not get into speculating about some deal or threat that Anthony is operating under. Isn’t ethical behavior enough? It’s just NOT cool to post pirated stuff, especially in a forum that maintains friendly relations with professionals.

That said, I don’t know what’s wrong with the joke links that exploit people’s desire to see something without paying :-)

517. navycuda - November 14, 2008

did anyone consider futurama cannon when they ok’d this movie?

518. JJF'dus - November 14, 2008

The fact that nobody cares enough to get a bootleg copy of this trailer speaks volumes as to its upcoming epic failure. Good job Paramount, lets relaunch a declining franchise in the midst of the blockbuster Summer movies. At least with the original release date we would be watching TV commercials as well right now.

519. Kyle - November 14, 2008

#506 Anthony – easy for you to say because you’ve seen the damn thing! I don’t care if it’s a shitty webcam, I’ve been waiting a year for this! Forget the “real” experience!!!

Theater: Century Bayfair 16

518. JJF’dus – November 14, 2008

“The fact that nobody cares enough to get a bootleg copy of this trailer speaks volumes as to its upcoming epic failure.”

your statement is at best unsubstainted, at worst illogical.

people did bootleg the teaser trailer in January. We don’t know if they have bootlegged this one. we simply know it hasn’t shown up on the web.

523. Aragorn189 - November 14, 2008

Went to a 1:50 show of Quantum of Solace at the Regal New Town in Williamsburg, VA and I was blown away by both the film and the trailer. When the trailer, I was actually teary eyed. My favorite crew was back on the big screen. The action looked solid and I like how they are making the crew rather rough around the edges. To whoever said that it kind of had a Top Gun feel, I kind of felt that vibe too. But that’s not a bad thing. I’ve always considered Kirk to be a maverick (no pun intended). Hopefully, they’ll make a third more detailed trailer. As for Quantum of Solace, it was a good follow up to Casino Royale and a solid Bond film. If you are into the franchise or the genre, go take a look.

544. Material Defender - November 14, 2008

Greetings from Europe.
I guess that in a perfect world, all citizens of the United Earth would be given a chance to see the trailer at the same time. Therefore all the begging for a bootleg and arguing over morality of posting it would not be nescessary at all.
On the other hand, i think that some 10 years in the future, I’ll remember following this thread much better than watching the trailer itself ;-)
While I’m disappointed that I may never have a chance to see it in the theatre ‘as it was MEANT to be seen’ and thus embrace the ‘True Experience’ you’ve been talking about, now waiting 2 days for the HD version doesn’t seem as bad as it did 5 hours ago. ^^

545. THX-1138 - November 14, 2008

So, for the most part, this is a thread about NOT seeing the trailer. And it’s nearing 540 posts.

551. Donn - November 14, 2008

I’m locked in to the showing of QoS I’m seeing on Sunday, (11am, Century, Roseville, CA) so I guess I just take my chances, and if it’s meant to be, I’ll see it. If not, I’ll see it the next day online.

Some added clarification to what’s been said already: a movie print arrives at a theater in canisters, broken up into manageable reels. (Film is heavy.) These are assembled onto a horizontal platter near the projector, so that the entire film is in one big spool. A two hour movie is about 3 and a half feet across, I would guess. So, at the outer edge of the spool is the beginning of the movie, which is threaded through the projector, then taken up on an empty platter, so that when the movie is over, the film is spooled up again in the same order.

Previews are shown before a movie, and therefore get attached to the outer edge of the spool, at the “end,” so hence they are called “trailers.”

The upshot of this is, if a theater just got the film for the midnight showing that day, meanwhile still showing its regular Thursday movies, the staff might not have much time to even put the reels together, let alone also check which trailer is meant to go with it and put that on as well.

552. OlafTheMerciful - November 14, 2008

For those saying that watching the trailer on youtube is not the same experience as watching it in the theater or in HD, here’s my take on that…

The (very poor) copy of the TV spots for The Wrath of Khan is exponentionally more exciting and epic than watching The Motion Picture on the big screen. Hopefully this movie’s got more than action/FX going for it.

Let’s see if this trailer can hang with that poor copy of the TWOK tv spots…or even in the same ballpark. The suspense is only raising the expectations of fans.

Except in the Digital age whem some prints arrive on what looks like a DVD and others that are streamed to a HD in a digital projector.

554. Ciarán - November 14, 2008


The tension is bloody killing me!!!

555. John from Cincinnati - November 14, 2008

The natives are restless

556. Justin Toney - November 14, 2008

I guess we will just have to wait till Monday to download the trailer. Bummer too.

557. Jay El Jay - November 14, 2008

May pull an all nighter…

558. Michael Foote - November 14, 2008

All of the tension, disappointment, desire for shakycam is all a product of the secracy of this film. If they had just been a bit more open, people would have more patientence now. This may not be a bad thing though, show causes a buzz for the movie.

559. Tripper - November 14, 2008

There were a couple torrents but they’ve been pulled.

560. montreal paul - November 14, 2008

Just got back from seeing Bond.. NO TREK TRAILER at the Kirkland Coliseum in Montreal… I guess I’ll wait til Monday.

But Bond was great! Action packed, great direction, great story and great acting.

561. angry but i'll get over it - November 14, 2008

Wow…hours later I’ve come back and still nothing…I must admit I’m slightly disappointed. C’mon now! It’s like I have to wait to Monday or something…..

562. obamite - November 14, 2008

As more times goes by, it’s becoming blatantly obvious that Anthony must be removing all the bootlegs. I don’t mean this in any way as a bad thing, and completely understand and support Anthony’s decision. I’m simply pointing it out in an effort to get people to realize that no matter how long they’ll sit here, no matter how mad they’ll get, it won’t make it any more likely that they’ll see a link to the trailer on here any time soon.

563. voyager - November 14, 2008

I’m sure that there haven’t been any posted, I’ve been constantly refreshing this page for the last 10 hours so I’d see at least something. Plus the fact that youtube or any other website has nothing.

564. gohan - November 14, 2008

@562, if links have been removed, please post here

565. Mav' - November 14, 2008

Well, i’ve been refreshing my search page on You Tube for 5 hours, and still no trailers. I find it unbealivable that no tralier has found its way there.

Well, since i can’t go to the theater for it since i live in France, i’ll just have to keep looking for it …

566. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

518. JJF’dus

I agree with one thing: They should have released it on the original date. There is so little coming out in the next month that is of any real interest to me. Next week would have been great.

567. Jay El Jay - November 14, 2008

565 what annoyed me was that someone has uploaded the Nemesis trailer in the last hour….

Salt… Wounds??

568. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

Why don’t one of you industrious folks who are complaining about no bootleg go and bootleg it yourself? I mean, if everybody was as lazy as you, there would never BE bootlegs. It’s kind of like sitting in the living room complaining about how no one will get you a beer. Get it yourself!!

569. Donn - November 14, 2008

553. Indeed. I suppose it’s been a while since I was up in the booth. Back then, occasionally we would get the soundtrack on CD, but that was the extent of digital involvement at my theater.

Kinda takes the romance out of it, just popping in a disc? Then again, we’re lusting after a movie about starships that have dispensed with the sail and halyard, the beat to quarters and running out of guns. Technology marches on, and we find new romance in “Hailing frequencies open” and “Helm, warp factor 6.”

570. Lightburg - November 14, 2008

I’m back, but there is no Trailer. Ok, now I say good night und I’ll come back tomorrow.

571. Spanish Brock - November 14, 2008

Off to QoS tonight – hoping they show the trailer at the Uptown in DC!

572. the_law - November 14, 2008

@568 Jax Maxton: have you seen the Seinfeld episode about bootlegging movies?!? We don’t want to end up like George Costanza!

573. voyager - November 14, 2008

It will be posted there in minutes once done uploading…you have to join to see it though to avoid me being shut down for piracy.

574. Donn - November 14, 2008

The bootleg trailer issue is a paradox. The majority of those calling for it are, by definition, not going to go make it, as they can’t be bothered to go to the theater in the first place.

I have no doubt that one has been posted in various forms and immediately removed. Which is as it should be, for TrekMovie to remain a legitimate site with access to TPTB.

575. Demonfafa - November 14, 2008

@571 Spanish Brock:

If they don’t make sure you mention it here. I’m considering hitting Potomac Yard in Alexandria for QoS.

576. Jason - November 14, 2008

Shatner said it all on Saturday night live……… GET A LIFE! I mean we’ve been waiting all YEAR , and you are up in arms about waiting 3 DAYS!! For god sake calm down and stop freakin out ! There’s more important issues in the world than worrying about a pirate bootleg youtube video !
I love original Star Trek, but some of you are just borderlining on insanity!

577. voyager - November 14, 2008

sorry about the delay everyone…the file is 108 mbs.

578. Justin Toney - November 14, 2008

I have already seen it, I just cant make it back to the theater anytime soon.

579. voyager - November 14, 2008

Alright I’m going to have to reencode it to a smaller size, so check back in a little bit to see if it’s up there…I’ll make a new post here when I post it.

580. Nevin524 - November 14, 2008

To Voyager:

Let us know as soon as its done. all ready joined LOL!

581. Plankcore - November 14, 2008

Voyager is the man. Three cheers!

582. The Man from Saskatoon - November 14, 2008

Just FYI, the trailer is *not* playing in front of QoS at the Galaxy Cinemas in Saskatoon, SK, Canada.

583. Vulcan927 - November 14, 2008

Great Bond flick but alas no Star Trek trailer here in Springfield Massachusetts… :-(

584. Neal - November 14, 2008

Stepping back a bit: Ain’t this grand!

All these people sharing a passion, talking excitedly on this forum. So much passion! Today is a big day.

585. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

I’d strangle Picard for a copy of this trailer!

586. John - November 14, 2008

I saw the trailer at the Cinerama Dome today. There was no audience reaction. The crowd did cheer for the new Watchmen movie, which looks unwatchable to me.

587. max - November 14, 2008

No ‘Trek’ trailer in Columbus, Ohio.

588. voyager - November 14, 2008

36% uploaded and coming fast!

589. ucdom - November 14, 2008


Is that a euphemism…?

590. Maniac - November 14, 2008

Beam the Trailer up, Scotty!!!

591. DarthTod - November 14, 2008

Forget about it, the trailer sucked anyways. What is up with the robot cop? I was already groaning when the little brat climbs back up the cliff and then he sticks out his lower lip and says “James Tiberius Kirk.”


Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Over.

592. voyager - November 14, 2008

It’s coming as fast as possible, my site really isn’t handling this in the best.

593. JUSTIN - November 14, 2008

My girlfreiand is not a trek fan and she thought it was really cool.

594. CSM - November 14, 2008

Saw QoS this AM…..30 seconds or so of Star Trek – Worth the price of admission alone!

595. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

yeah she told me the same thing

596. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Okay Voyager, only 36%? You have me glued to my screen, refreshing this page every four seconds. YAY for Trek!

597. Jax Maxton - November 14, 2008

591. DarthTod

I agree.

598. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

The waiting is the hardest part.

599. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

Downloading now! Thanks Voyager! 7 mins left on my DL!

600. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

604. Rawr - November 14, 2008

Mirror is trolling. It’s still being uploaded.

605. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

I’d wipe my ass with a tribble to see this right now. SIGH. Sometimes being a nerd is difficult. But we somehow manage. Agreed?

606. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

I’d do that for free man…

607. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Self Made Reeses + Tribble = Star Trek: Nemesis. har, har, har…

608. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

How do we know that voyager isn’t pulling our legs?

609. G - November 14, 2008

Some entertainment to calm the crowd while they wait..

610. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

Because I’ve been to Earth…

611. WATCHMEN TRAILER ON G4 - November 14, 2008


they will replay it gain at 9 pm west coast time for those that already missed the show

612. Benjamin - November 14, 2008


Now where is the TRAILER?

613. Daniel Broadway - November 14, 2008

#611, you can watch the Watchmen trailer at We want to see the Trek one, which for some reason isn’t loaded until Monday. Ugh.

614. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Yeah, WATCHMEN trailer… Who cares? right now we only care about STAR TREK TRAILER.

615. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

voyager, where is the trailer? at least give us an update.

616. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

Never Mind.. voyagers post is a fake.. got hundreds of us.. Almost as good as getting Rick Rolled though

617. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Perhaps I will just leave a bit of hope for voyager, even though it’s probably fake…

I need to have some hope

618. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

OK.. guess it’s no trailer for tonight..

Hopefully there’s someone out there witha shakycam watching it right now so we can DL in the morning

619. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

No.. it’s a fake.. confirmed

620. Jon - November 14, 2008

there is no trailer from voyager, its a troll

621. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Ye have little faith. I am 100% confident that a trailer will emerge sometime tonight.

622. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

“My attempts at re-encoding it have failed, I’m having computer problems. Who here is GOOD at encoding videos?”


At least they should have linked us to Rick…

623. Kirk, James T. - November 14, 2008

ugh, it’s a sad sight to see people result to stupidity when they can’t just be patient and wait. it’s just silly.

624. Benjamin - November 14, 2008


Or not lie in the first place. Posers.

625. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

DO NOT go to

It’s a scam

626. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Most are.

BTW, post 623 kind of ticked me off. Why? Not sure. :-P

JK – Peace and Love :)

627. Bob - November 14, 2008

How do you know this!?

628. Mirror Mirror - November 14, 2008

He uploaded an old fan trailer to YouTube…


629. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Great logic, BOB. You must remember that 90% of the folks on the web are only here to piss other surfers off. It’s sad, really.

630. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - November 14, 2008

Here’s a pretty funny one I stumbled upon. NOT THE NEW TRAILER but a little humor to tide us over

631. Bob - November 14, 2008

Mirror do you have a link to prove it?

632. Jon - November 14, 2008

633. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Mirror and Voyager could be the same person. We would never know the difference.

634. unknown01 - November 14, 2008

rebuttal to mirror mirror: here is the cop from the trailer you will all be seeing once it’s uploaded

635. bugs knickson - November 14, 2008

its real!!!!


636. Benjamin - November 14, 2008

Against my better Judgement I am downloading what Jon Posted. what is it?>??

637. Green-Blooded-Bastard - November 14, 2008


638. Bob - November 14, 2008
