On tonight’s MTV Spoilers show there were previews and exclusive peeks from a number of Summer tent pole movies, including the new Star Trek film. However the Trek ‘featurette’ was comprised mostly of previously seen clips combined with new ‘behind the scenes’ footage and new actor interview clips, focusing on director JJ Abrams, check it out below. [UPDATE: and maybe there is something really new]
MTV has posted their ‘exclusive featurette’ which has behind the scenes footage, similar to the video on the Esurance Star Trek promotional site. There is some new behind the scenes footage and some actor interview snippets, but for footage from the movie you can (at most) catch a glimpse of some more of the Kirk and Spock fight scene (viewable on a monitor during the interview clips). There is also a brief glimpse of what looks like a set that hasn’t been seen before (see screencaps below). Although hardcore fans were hoping for more, this was aimed at the MTV crowd to get them jazzed and the audience did seem excited about the movie.
And here is the ‘exclusive featurette.’
This video clip includes all of the above, with other discussion of Star Trek on the show, including Wil Wheaton’s thoughts. [thanks to Kelvington for the clip]
UPDATE: Screencaps – Something really new? – Kelvin bridge shot?
The behind the scenes shots are new, but mostly similar to what we have seen before of JJ working on the bridge set of the USS Enterprise. However there is a brief clip showing Abrams on a different set, which could be the bridge of the USS Kelvin.
And there was this brief shot, from yet another set, possibly Scotty’s lab on Delta Vega
There is also a brief glimpse (on the monitors) of some of more footage from the Spock v Kirk fight scene.
Here are more of the caps of the new behind the scenes footage on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. (click to enlarge).
And finally caps of some of the cast with the USS Enterprise bridge in background.
