First Star Trek Tickets Go On Sale + ST09 Art Display At Arclight Hollywood [UPDATE: Run Time Confirmed] March 6, 2009

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

Just this morning, the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood (home of the famous Cinerama Dome) became the first theater in the world to begin selling tickets to the new Star Trek movie. So far they have two midnight shows (on two screens) for Thursday May 8th. Plus last night Paramount put up an artistic Star Trek display at the Arclight, in honor of the new trailer. Details below 

 

Be the first
Well due to Star Trek being a global premiere, folks in Europe will actually be the first to see the new Star Trek movie, but you can be the first in LA to see it if you book your tickets now at the Arclight.

So far they have two midnight screenings listed for Thursday May 8th: 12:01 AM and 12:10 AM. If these sell out quickly, the Arclight may add additional shows.


See Trek first in Arclight’s historic Dome theater

Star Trek Enterprise Art Display
Just in time for the Star Trek trailer premiere with Watchmen, Paramount put up a new Star Trek display at the Hollywood Arclight on Thursday. Visitors to the theater lobby can see three Enterprise ship displays, each encased in glass. All three ships are around three feet long and shaped like the new USS Enterprise from the Star Trek movie. One is painted to be an accurate replica, with both paint detailing and lights. The other two have been stylized by local artists.

The display should remain up at the Arclight Hollywood for about a week.

140 minutes? [UPDATE: actually 126]
The Arclight Star Trek page is listing the film running time at 140 minutes. This is actually longer than previously indicated the film’s producers, who have said it should be around 2 hours. It is possible that Arclight got the timing wrong, TrekMovie is looking into it.

UPDATE: Paramount informs us the actual runtime for Star Trek is 126 minutes long, and they have informed Arclight who will update their site.

If I lived anywhere near that theatre I’d be first in line!

WOO-HOOO!!!

2. Ada - March 6, 2009

That Enterprise display, yeah, the one with the working lights and so forth… yeah, I want it, I WANT IT, NOW.

3. LoyalStarTrekFan - March 6, 2009

Pic 5: “What can brown do for you?”

The Enterprise sure looks beautiful in those pictures. I like the new design more and more every time new images of it comes out. Excellent work by the design team.

4. bobster - March 6, 2009

wow!

I hated this ship at first sight.

This version has slowly grown on me!
Now, I love it.
Nice work Mr Church!

5. Lucky LA-Residing SOB - March 6, 2009

Scored great seats to the 12:01 on the DOME!

WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

6. Selor - March 6, 2009

Can’t wait… can’t wait… so near although so far away!

7. tim - March 6, 2009

“folks in Europe will actually be the first to see the new Star Trek movie…”
YES!

8. Valar1 - March 6, 2009

I still don’t like the fat nacelles, seems obscenely enhanced- kinda like looking at Pamela Anderson.

9. Quarksbartender - March 6, 2009

Where’s the Galaxy Express version? I kidd

10. Duane - March 6, 2009

8. Ageed. I think it’s the angle of the photo, though. When viewed from other angles I think it looks great.

11. Quarksbartender - March 6, 2009

I wonder if Quantum Mechanix will make a retail version of this that wolud go nicely with Master Replicas version of the original E

12. Commander K - March 6, 2009

heheee we get the movie before the Americans! woohoo!

13. Matt - March 6, 2009

I believe that we in Australia actually get it first

14. Datalore - March 6, 2009

Just came from the midnight showing of Watchmen at the Arclight, and they DIDN’T HAVE THE NEW TREK TRAILER!!!!!! I was sooo pissed, but saw it online and it looks great. Also saw all the Trek stuff.

15. Commander K - March 6, 2009

Argh oh well..jst as long as we get it before the US (that makes up for us not being able to enter any official competitions! :P)

16. KevinA Melbourne Australia - March 6, 2009

7,
I’m not sure exactly but I think Australia might be the 1st place to see the new movie (well maybe New Zealand and a few Pacific islands but they don’t count – just kiding Kiwi’s!)

So get on a plane and get downunder! Then fly back for your own opening the same day! That should really get your heads spinning!

17. James - Australia - VIC - March 6, 2009

Jst came from seeing Watchmen…….GOT THE TRAILER WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME..watchmen was good to lol

18. Prentice of Borg - March 6, 2009

Got my seat for the 12:01 in the dome. Row C, hell yeah!

19. Stanky McFibberich - March 6, 2009

The fake Enterprise looks like some kid drew it in study hall…and not one with much design talent. IMHO

BAD.

20. Nate - March 6, 2009

The UPS Enterprise cracks me up.

21. Seven Of Nine's Panties - March 6, 2009

I’m one of those people who was hating the new Enterprise when the first picture was released, but am loving it now!

22. RMBurnett - March 6, 2009

Folks,

The Enterprise display at the Arclight is frackking AWESOME. I have to say…the model of the film version is rather impressive…and seeing it in three dimensions…at about 1/350 Scale…looks pretty decent. I now actually want a model of it. I made my girlfriend shoot many angles of it, much to her chagrin (she was like…”Is there a Master Replicas model of this…because YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT!!!).

Originally, I HATED the uncut foreskin nacelle design of the ship…UNTIL I SAW THIS 3/D model tonight…And Now…? Well…it’s…oh…alright…I’ll say it….it’s COOL. It’s…SEXY.

Now…where the heck do I get one of those models?

BTW…despite the HIDEOUS Enterprise interior production design (the Engineering section is particularly galling)…the new trailer is CHILLING. The audience applauded. The music is awe-inspiring…! Where is that track from anyway? Dare I say it…but I did feel a burning in my loins of tremendous man-love when Pine sits in the center seat.

But the destruction of Vulcan…?!? I mean…VULCAN is GONE at the end of the film…!!! At least…It really seems like it’s gone…. And…it’s IN THE TRAILER!!!

Bruce Greenwood PWNS.

I have to say…while I have my misgivings…being a staunch cannonista and all…I’m really, FINALLY excited for this movie…and I’ve already seen twenty minutes of it. I’ve always maintained a YESTERDAY’S ENTERPRISE reboot would work for me…AND APPARENTLY… IT DOES!!!

But…with the destruction of of the Romulan homeworld in COUNTDOWN #2…with Nero’s wife and child consumed in the destruction because of Vulcan inaction…well…if I were Nero…I’d blow up Vulcan, too…!

Also…I have to admit…Spock Prime as Jor-El…well…that’s really, really tasty.

I’ve been painfully nit-picking this reboot for a year now…but I’m man enough to admit…I’m really, REALLY looking forward to seeing this film.

STAR TREK LIVES! (again…and again…and again…and again…)

23. CardassiaPrimera - March 6, 2009

Latinamerica look de movie firts, May 7.

24. Liz - March 6, 2009

Star Trek could sell out by the beginning of April if other theaters do this too. I’d buy tickets if a theater near me offered them. This is great news. I love the diplays. They are beautiful.

Star Trek lives!

25. kmart - March 6, 2009

I was not expecting that kind of reversal in thinking.

Must have been like this for Heston fans when his polarities swung wrong starting in the 70s and he traded his sensibilities for dogma.

26. Ben - March 6, 2009

I’ve got to have a model of that ship!!

Anthony,

I know Master Replicas has rights to the movie however any word on actual model kits like RC2, Polar Lights, ect….

Thanks!

27. Jay El Jay - March 6, 2009

What??? Tickets are on sale now??? FRACK ME!!

28. Clinton - March 6, 2009

Confused about the running length. JJ talked earlier about the movie being no longer than an hour and a half. But I know Anthony is on the case and will get the info we need.

29. Denise de Arman - March 6, 2009

WOO HOO! LOVE the Enterprise replicas! Would beam into a radioactive engineering room to get my hands on the UPS Enterprise…

30. Mark - March 6, 2009

#25…

Where in the world did the Charlton Heston thing come from?

31. NimoyDog - March 6, 2009

Just got my 4 tickets to the 12:01am show!

32. Cylon - March 6, 2009

#8 And yet if the Enterprise was real or Pam Anderson was willing and they both said welcome aboard you would be the first one there:D

33. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

Ok. I will just havt to wait till I can get my tickets here in Austin. Ill get the Midnght showing then the next day ill do the Imax Showing. So can’t Wait!!!!.

34. "Uncle" Clay Farrow - March 6, 2009

I still don’t like the blue bacelle caps. Everything else about the new E is pretty damn good….

35. "Uncle" Clay Farrow - March 6, 2009

Damn, I should try typing “nacelle” with my eyes open next time…

36. Cylon - March 6, 2009

36 You know it’s funny but they kind of do look like ball caps from a certain point of view. I think you are on to something with “bacelle” caps.

37. captain_neill - March 6, 2009

I still hate the nacelles on this design

38. JT - March 6, 2009

That is the ugliest version of the enterprise I have ever seen!

39. Weerd1 - March 6, 2009

Still wish the Bussard Collectors were red… but maybe then it would look too much like a cop car. The blue seems to indicate a shift in the physics of Federation war drives. Hmmm.

40. Montreal Paul - March 6, 2009

19. Stanky McFibberich – March 6, 2009
“The fake Enterprise looks like some kid drew it in study hall…and not one with much design talent. IMHO
BAD.”

Good thing your opinion doesn’t really mean anything Stanky :) LoL

41. Chris H - March 6, 2009

What’s with all this ‘uncut’ stuff? LOL! Have been a (gay) fan for 40 yrs and never seen (straight) male fans so phallic-ly obsessed with nacelles before!

42. Jon - March 6, 2009

19- Feel free to showcase your superior alternative.

43. Thomas Jensen - March 6, 2009

Enterprise on steriods. Perhaps Congress can investigate. They’re not doing anything serious anyway.

44. Dennis Bailey - March 6, 2009

To heck with the new stuff – I love that old “Cinerama” sign in the photo at the top – where can I get one of those? LOL

45. Dennis Bailey - March 6, 2009

#25:”Must have been like this for Heston fans when his polarities swung wrong starting in the 70s and he traded his sensibilities for dogma.”

Yeah, except that this is the clear opposite – the rejection of dogma in favor of a direct aesthetic response to what’s being seen of the film itself.

One would think the inappropriateness of that analogy would be obvious even to you. Enjoy your dogma. It’s all you have left. LOL

46. Star Trackie - March 6, 2009

The sense of balance and symetry is lost with those crazy nacelles. Not near as bad as the top heavy Enterprise D but still not as balanced as the TOS or movie E. But hey, I’m optimistic. The camera can’t focus on the bad angles the whole movie through.

47. ARGTREK - March 6, 2009

we are going to get the movie 1 day early , may 7 , because the new movies open on thursdays…. I´ll take a plane to Buenos aires just to see this movie ( the theatres where i live are really bad, small screens and no dolby thx )

48. Z - March 6, 2009

I BEG TO DISAGREE! we filipinos will be the first to see Trek. =P

49. Marian Ciobanu - March 6, 2009

- That ship looks great…

50. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

#18. Im so jealous. No Fair!!!. Just not Right.I do not like you!!. Please! please! please!. Can I have your Ticket. Please!!!!!!

51. Anthony Pascale - March 6, 2009

i have added a link to the word ‘global premiere’ above for an article we did on it last summer

http://trekmovie.com/2008/07/19/star-trek-to-get-global-premiere-us-not-the-first/

Star Trek opens on Wed. May 6th in Belgium, France and the French parts of Switzerland. Wednesdays are the traditional times for movie openings there. It then opens on Thursday in Germany and a few other countries, including those in S. America. Australia opens on Friday, but since it is so many hours ahead of the US it might as well be Thursday.

So technically those at the ArcLight on the Pacific coast will be far from the first, but the fist in LA time and among the first in the US. East Coast theaters should be showing it three hours earlier.

All that being said the ‘gala premiere’ will be a few days earlier, and also the press screenings.

52. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

This is one hell of a trailer. I love the look of the Big E. I think it looks perfect for the New Movie.The actiuon and drame looks great. The Fx are out of here. This will have hart and passion and action. this is Trek the way it should be and i as a hard core fan for over 30 years am very happy with everything. To me a True hard core fan is someone who has seen every Episode of Trek From Tos to Ent and all the Movies. So seeing the Tos Eps over a 100 Times apeice and all the eps of all the Series a dozen times over and all the moves the same. I can safely say that this Movie will be one of the Best of all the Movies. Right upp there in drama to Trek 2 and way Surpassing Tmp in Fx.

53. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

It will open here in Austin at 1201am friday Very Early Morning. Ill be there!!.

54. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

Hey Anthony. Have Trek Movie ready on May 7th through the next week. As this site will gets many thousands of hits and posts.

55. psytce - March 6, 2009

I want one of those models ….

Better yet I want to build one of those models..

Any word on if there is going to be any models from this movie????

Thanks!

56. Third Remata'Klan - March 6, 2009

Every new pic just reinforces that the first released image of the Enterprise was just a bad shot.

She looks pretty. Still not my favorite incarnation, but quite lovely.

57. Tanner Waterbury (HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN) - March 6, 2009

AAAHHH MORE ANGLES MORE ANGLES!! I want to see this ship full 360 all around her!

58. Olley Olley Olley - March 6, 2009

ship looks v nice

59. OneBuckFilms - March 6, 2009

Paramount needs to get in contact with the Star Trek Experience people, and let them host that large Enterprise model.

That and the TMP Refit model (if it still exists) would be great.

60. Clinton - March 6, 2009

Thanks for the follow-up on the running time, Anthony!

61. Steven - March 6, 2009

126 Minutes. Still makes it the second longest-running Trek film.

I actually think the longer film, the better. Although I liked “Star Trek: Nemesis,” I actually think it would have been a better film with an additional ten or fifteen minutes kept in, to keep the narrative flowing more evenly. The wedding scene alone could’ve gone on for a few more minutes, in my opinion. Oh well, I digress.

God bless!

62. Denise de Arman - March 6, 2009

Antnony, Trekmovie is the bomb – thank you for all this great info.

63. Gabriel Bell - March 6, 2009

61… exactly right.

62… exactly right.

63… very excited to see this movie!

64. Jason - March 6, 2009

Plus, 126 is only the second time that a Trek film has crossed the 2 hour mark, so that’s good.

As for the ticket sales, what if Paramount bumped up the release to, say, May 6, or choice to open it (in a style that seemed popular a few years ago on films like Pirates and Transformers) on the evening before, at around 8:00?

65. DavidJ - March 6, 2009

I really like the nacelles. They look BIG AND POWERFUL, like starship engines probably should.

Those skinny nacelles on the TOS and refit might have looked more graceful, but I never got a sense that there was a lot of power behind them. They almost looked decorative more than anything.

66. rayjay - March 6, 2009

Can’t do the midnight show, but so excited it’s at the dome!

WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

67. Mark - March 6, 2009

that ship that ship….is so beautiful.

If that’s what it really looks like, then I’m all for it.

It doesn’t look that bad as I first thought, it seems to have a more substantial engineering section that what was first seen.

68. captain shroom - March 6, 2009

Somethin’ is still not right with those nacelles. Time they went to Jenny Craig.

Note for sequel JJ.

69. AJ - March 6, 2009

The ship model has the older TOS red markings along the side of the secondary hull. I can’t find those markings in the trailer imagery.

70. MORN SPEAKS - March 6, 2009

2 1/2 hours!!!! Sweet! I have never been this excited for this long for a movie or TV show this long in development!!!

Star Trek finally deserves the budget and attention it always deserved!!!

71. Valar1 - March 6, 2009

32

dude, if the Ent was real I’d board her, same goes for Pam, lol.

72. Markonian - March 6, 2009

I’m looking forward to the movie.

I observed in the latest trailer, at time index 00:01:48 when Enterprise does a flyby near Starfleet wreckage, that there ist a saucer labelled as “LOWE”. In my opinion that was probably a starship called USS LOWELL.

73. lukas - March 6, 2009

You guys know that the movie starts on may 6th in some theatres in Germany and elsewhere in Europe…

You should consider a trip over here!

74. Tanner Waterbury (HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN) - March 6, 2009

Hey Anthony, have you taken other pics with different angles of that beauty? If so can you post em?

75. Will_H - March 6, 2009

For some reason the side views of that model make me dislike the new E a lot less, just looks a lot better and more balanced there for some reason.

76. Odkin - March 6, 2009

1701 Nacelle caps must be RED. RED I tells ya!

Red=power and fire and energy. Blue=passive LED glow

77. Rod @ Dunedin, New Zealand - March 6, 2009

“folks in Europe will actually be the first to see the new Star Trek movie…”
YES!

“I’m not sure exactly but I think Australia might be the 1st place to see the new movie (well maybe New Zealand and a few Pacific islands but they don’t count – just kiding Kiwi’s!)

So get on a plane and get downunder! Then fly back for your own opening the same day! That should really get your heads spinning!”

Is that right? Well, I’m going to see it on release before any of you, so “Nah nah na nah-nah!!!”

78. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

#77. For that outburst you get to spend a few hours in the Agoniser Booth. Then we will see how much singing you will do down under.

79. THX-1138-The Horn Xpressionist - March 6, 2009

OK, I’ll say it:

When do the adults get a new Enterprise? I don’t want one of those kiddie Playmates ones. And I won’t get the MR version either. They will probably be beautiful and all but in this economy, or any other, it ‘aint gonna happen. Not unless Publisher’s Clearing House comes a knockin’.

Where’s John Tenuto? Answers, man! We need answers!

80. Trekkiefan16 - March 6, 2009

I will have to hide in my closet for a couple days before the 8th. There will be spoilers all over the place once folks from Europe/Australia view it.
I just hope folks use good judegment and hold off until it is released in the US.

81. Stanky McFibberich - March 6, 2009

re:40 Montreal Paul
“Good thing your opinion doesn’t really mean anything Stanky :) LoL”

It means as much or as little as anyone else’s here.
Of course the sheep think only their opinions count.
:)

82. Prometheus_Alpha - March 6, 2009

You said it brother !!! WE NEED an FX COMPANY/ Quantum Mechanix New 1701 studio scale model !!!!! If you listening CBS …Please, Please !!! Master Replicas will take 10 years to produce one !

83. Cylon - March 6, 2009

71- Good man, you know your priorities:)

84. Cylon - March 6, 2009

Maybee it’s just me but does the photo of the Arclight Dome Theater look kind of like one of the matte paintings from TOS?

85. neal - March 6, 2009

UPS Enterprise? In the words of a great master: “That’s SOOOOOO Wrong!!!”

86. KevinA Melbourne Australia - March 6, 2009

Village Australia now listing STAR TREK as coming soon, May 7. BUT IMAX in Melbourne knows nothing about STAR TREK? They are pretty slow are a pretty slow operation here in Melbourne, having missed the SUPERMAN RETURN’s the IMAX Experience again because they didn’t know (or didn’t care!)

They have shown “Dark Knight” and more recently “Day the Earth Stood still” but they don’t know about STAR TREK. What is Paramount and IMAX International doing? Next stop is to try Sydney IMAX to see if their more likely to be on the ball!

Come on IMAX in Oz, get your act together!

87. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - March 6, 2009

Europe strikes back against the American fans!

MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

But it’s all in fun! I imagine a lot of American fans will be hiding from TrekMovie when it’s shown in Europe!

88. Xai - March 6, 2009

The original TOS Enterprise is still in there. I can see her in the lines of this latest design.

I am liking this pose much more than the first shots we saw. Even through the lens of a slightly alternate universe, our Enterprise is still there to protect and serve her captain and crew.

89. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

#87. You get to spend an hour in the Agoniser booth

90. Izbot - March 6, 2009

Can’t wait for it to come to the Seattle Cinerama! Thank you uber-rich Microsoft geek Paul Allen!

91. Jay El Jay - March 6, 2009

87 Im in Europe and I plan to aviod trekmovie till ive seen it at least 5 times lol

92. Richard Martin - March 6, 2009

It’s about timke the European fans were apprecaited! ?Up yours Captain Mike.

93. Tanner Waterbury (HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN) - March 6, 2009

I emailed Quantum Mechanix today and got a response here it is:

Hi Tanner -

Thanks so much for your e-mail and your interest in our Enterprise replica. What you’ve seen on display is a special project commissioned exclusively for Paramount and Bad Robot Productions; we currently have no announcements on availability of a retail version.

Having said that, I might suggest signing up for our newsletter (http://insider.qmxonline.com). If and when we have more to share on the Enterprise project, you’ll hear about it first through the newsletter.

Thanks again!

Andy

So it seems as though no time soon :(

94. Capt Mike Of The Terran Empire - March 6, 2009

#92. You get the agoniser booth for a week. Long live the Terran Empire!!!!!!

It ‘sold out’ long before that….

98. Jefferies Tuber - March 6, 2009

Saw the models. The art pieces are shoddy.

I think they’re going for a the Kid Robot-Dunny aesthetic, but they need more than 2 improvised examples to pull that off.

But the Enterprise looks fantastic. It’s about as wide as a refrigerator, not a whole lot bigger than a toy model.

To all the dopes who are still commenting on the nacelles [they're large, holy shit you're right!], watch the shots of the Enterprise amid the Starfleet debris field. This Enterprise is designed to be viewed from every direction. Some of the non-traditional shots of the ship are the most beautiful.

The large nacelles create a third massing in the ship’s design. The nacelles are now balanced with the Primary and Secondary Hulls. The ship looks stronger. The nacelles look like they’re armored and secure.

99. Jefferies Tuber - March 6, 2009

Sorry, the width of the model from the side [from bow to stern of the ship] is about as wide as a refrigerator.

101. Admiral Clouatre - March 6, 2009

My only beef about the ship is that there’s no registry number under the saucer….kind of makes the underside look empty and plain…that, and the underside concave-type structure that’s normally under the saucer….all together, the saucer’s underside looks too plain and ordinary.

102. KevinA Melbourne Australia - March 6, 2009

AUSSIES UNITE!

I have been informed by IMAX Australia that the new STAR TREK movie is NOT necessarily being sloted in to show at IMAX theaters here.

It appears there is a real ignorance of the potential of STAR TREK downunder. Even though IMAX ran “The Day The Earth Stood Still” which was canned by many, they are showing complete apathy toward STAR TREK.

I’m calling on all Aussies to get onto there local IMAX, and in particular Melbourne. I’m sure many in Oz will want to see STAR TREK at it’s best and that is IMAX. If we don’t start making a noise now, we will miss out the same way we did when they didn’t show ‘SUPERMAN RETURNS” here either.

Google IMAX now and send them a message.

STAR TREK: THE IMAX EXPERIENCE for Australia May 7, 2009 – Make it so

103. Rocket Scientist - March 6, 2009

I didn’t really mind the new E design, but now I”m really LIKIN’ it! That side view shows that it retains the classic lines while introducing some interesting new design concepts.

104. CMX54 - March 6, 2009

What an ugly ship. A real shame.

105. Miles R. Seppelt - March 6, 2009

I’m very excited for the movie, but I can’t honestly say that I’m a big fan of the new Enterprise design. Way too front heavy overall, and each component (i.e. secondary hull, nacelles) looks too front heavy. It just doesn’t seem to have much “balance” to it.

106. Daoud - March 6, 2009

#72 Maybe it’s the USS LOWENBRAU ;)

Nice display, and agreed, one would hope it would eventually make its way to Vegas and the new ST Experience….

107. Robert H. - March 7, 2009

Off topic here, if they could redesign the Enterprise even more, put the shuttle bay in the lower half of the ship’s engineering section, and have the fan tail freed up for the warp engineering section and that the warp power conduits go directly into the warp nacelles without having to go around the shuttle bay.

Maybe for the Bonhomme Richard class, a variation of the Constitution class.

like i said before looks like the big E’s new look was inspired by the cover of “Final Frontier”, you know the “prequel” novel about George Kirk Sr. and the NCC-1701′s launch. Got the blue nacelle caps and even big black NCC-1701 on the sides without the red stripes. Check it out.

126 minutes. One article said it was 140 minutes. that was later corrected to 126 minutes. The 20 minute Shatner scene ended up on the cutting room floor

[...] The Arclight Cinema theater in Hollywood has actually started to sell tickets already for the new Trek film.  In the lobby they have a display set up with models of the new Enterprise.  Each model is about 3 feet long and more pictures of them can be seen HERE. [...]

My only complaint about the new ship is that the tail of the secondary hull looks like an afterthought. Maybe in the new design the tail is really just there to hold the nacelles up. Ah well, everyone has a theroy when it comes to design.

#76…have you ever actually studied the color spectrum?? Red is on the lowest end of the visible spectrum. Blue is near the top. Blue is a far more powerful color than red.

I think the this ship is the biggest monster in the movie. But i Liked the trailer.
And yes, we in Europe will be the first :-) LOL

The tickets for the Arclight are for Thursday May *7th*, does this mean, they’re showing it a day in advance, or do I have my dates confused?

What’s an “UDPATE”?

I like the new Enterprise pictures but i still think the nacelles is about 10% to big. I Also think neck could have been little thicker when it connects to engineering hull.

Running time 126 min is exactly the same length as Mission: Impossible III directed by Abrams. It is a good length but i would have loved 140 min playing time was true.

Hi there just wanna say I hate how it looks. It’s TOS meets the new War of the worlds ships (nacels anyway) meets some fan boy’s wet dream.

All this ship needs is a ground FX’s package and spinning rims.

When you look at the picture you can almost hear “idst, idst, idst,” and if you look really closely you’ll see girl’s dancing and swinging on poles just beyond the windows.

But you have to look really close.

Ah I am just happy that A: there is an IMAX theatre in my area and B: the movie is a two hours movie. I was hoping that JJ was joking when I said “around one and a half hours, who wants to sit through a two hour movie.”

Well this movie could go for over two hours as far as I am concerned.

#102 I recently enquired with IMAX Melbourne and they are unable to confirm if Star Trek Imax will join the schedule. I really hope Melburnian fans make known to Imax that ST needs to be seen in this format gawdamnit!!!!

well im seeing it on the 7th of May. got my tix ! but im not even a fan of Star Trek. just looks like a good movie to see. and if people are worried about spoilers well….its just a movie. besides it comes out the day after for the rest of the world. I dont know why someone would want to watch a movie at 12:01am 1 day late lol. u could also wait during the day of the 8th to see it if tix are full for the midnight session.
