Good stuff!

Ok. I would rather see Harry Ballz Vs erica Durance. Lol.
Or. Kirk Vs Picard.
Or. Kirk Prime Vs Pine Kirk
Or. Bob Orci vs J.J Abrams. Lol.

3. Dee - lvs moon' surface - October 17, 2011

Ok guys!… took it to be posted here… but thanks… LOL…

Of course I’m drooling for Chris Pine, as always… I love him playing the spy… every move… he’s great doing action scenes… I’ll watch either way…

Shinzon looks great, too!

:-) :-)

4. Red Dead Ryan - October 17, 2011

Well, I’m going to guess that Harry Ballz ISN’T in any hurry to see Chris Pine and Tom Hardy take it on the chin just so one of them can date “The Chin”! (Reese Witherspoon)

5. Alice - October 17, 2011

Horrible!

6. Dee - lvs moon' surface - October 17, 2011

#4.RDR…

Yes I think Mr. Ballz does not love the chin… but I hope he understands that I’m not in it for the chin… LOL… OMG… this was awful… I’m bad…+LOL

:-) :-)

7. Corinthian7 - October 17, 2011

I’ll probably watch the Pine/Hardy comedy as I’m a fan of both actors but I’m well aware that the trailer was probably showing all the best bits and it didn’t exactly have me splitting my sides. Seeing the name McG attached to it doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence either…

8. Phil - October 17, 2011

Lets see…Yeah, maybe, no, maybe…

9. Red Dead Ryan - October 17, 2011

“but I hope he understands that I’m not in it for the chin…”

So, you’re not “in it to chin it”?

10. Red Dead Ryan - October 17, 2011

Q: What is Reese Witherspoon’s favorite fish?

A: CHIN-nook salmon!

11. Red Dead Ryan - October 17, 2011

Harry Ballz once turned down a gift from Reese Witherspoon because he knew it was CHIN-tzy!

12. Clinton - October 17, 2011

Wow. The first time I watched that trailer I didn’t notice at all that it was the actor from Star Trek: Nemesis. Now, I can’t NOT see it. Too funny.

13. Keachick - rose pinenut - October 17, 2011

The only thing that bothers me is the waiting…for This Means War, Welcome to People, Star Trek and no NZ release date for two of the movies that have been pretty much completed.

14. VZX - October 17, 2011

Simon Pegg is also in the 4th Mission Impossible movie coming out in December. I think his role is much larger now.

15. Dee - lvs moon' surface - October 17, 2011

#2….. HA!!!

:-) :-)

16. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - October 17, 2011

I now declare this thred. The Harry Ballz Vs thred. Lol.
Harry vs the Borg.
Harry Vs The Sisko.
Harry Vs Erica. In a Death Match.
Harry Vs Harry from the Empire!.
Finally. Harry Vs all of Trekmovie!!!!!!!!!.

17. Keachick - rose pinenut - October 17, 2011

Harry too chicken to make a grab for “the chin” – eh?…:)

If only you would gaze upon the Witherspoon chin for just a mere second or two, you would see what picture of beauty that it is…I promise!

18. Buzz Cagney - October 17, 2011

wow Patrick Stewart is looking younger than ever in that trailer with Chris Pine!

19. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 17, 2011

#18 – Patrick Stewart? Where?

Is Bob Orci about? Have Chris, Zach and Karl seen their lines yet? Is Zachary having his ears treated yet? What about that Vulcan salute and the eyebrows? Don’t forget that Kirk may also need to be able to do a proper Vulcan salute. Then there are the Vulcan neck pinches, the Kirk-fu, the correct way to say “Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor, not a …!” and “He’s dead, Jim!” and something about green-bloodedness.

Last, but not least, to see the finely toned muscles displaying such wonderful specimens of manhood in the form of Pine/Kirk, *Quinto/Spock and Urban/McCoy hanging from vines with little more than a peace lily leaf for um, covering. Lt Uhura, with little more than a peace lily leaf as well, makes a daring rescue and saves all. So much to do…so little time.

I take it that Bob Orci must be at work running through his eloquently written lines from the next Star Trek movie with our lovely cast. I hope so. Those guys need to get back into the studio and become our heroes and the sooner the better.

Are you guys getting this?
Very good. Carry on!

* Perhaps this is what Zachary Quinto meant by “prepping” as in “prepping” to do the vine scene. I do hope so…:)

20. Harry Ballz - October 17, 2011

Yeah, guys, you’re right!

The notion of Chris Pine and Tom Hardy fighting over Reese Witherspoon is absurd in the extreme.

If she wasn’t famous do you seriously think any man would give her a first glance let alone second?

It’s not just the GIGANTIC CHIN, she just isn’t very good looking and has a really irritating personality.

21. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 17, 2011

“It’s not just the GIGANTIC CHIN, she just isn’t very good looking and has a really irritating personality.”

If everyone thought as you do about Reese Witherspoon, how did she get so famous? Obviously a lot of people (presumably men and women) must like her? Just wondering…

22. Daniel craigs my wookie bitch now - October 18, 2011

How did you guys miss promoting Shatners instore appearance at Ameoba Records in Hollywood last week. very disapointing.
He was great took the time to listen and talk to each guest, didnt rush them along. And for the price of the cd 13.99 or the DVD 16.98 you got his autograph. No freaking super expensive creation admission ticket or 100 dollar autograph ticket.

23. Daniel craigs my wookie bitch now - October 18, 2011

How did you guys miss promoting Shatners instore appearance at Ameoba Records in Hollywood last week. either before or after it took place. very disapointing, you didnt give this any coverage.

24. James - October 18, 2011

I missed it the first time, but then you posted it again so I didn’t.

25. Harry Ballz - October 18, 2011

21.

Don’t know, Keachick. I guess some people are easily impressed!

26. Mel - October 18, 2011

“This Means War” looks good, but I am not interested in the other movies.

“Tintin” may have been good, if they used another animation method. The faces of the humans look just as bad as in “The Polar Express”. I just hate that animation style too much to watch the movie.

27. Darryl - October 18, 2011

Harold & Kumar looks like it’s going to be high-larious!

28. Daniel craigs my wookie bitch now - October 18, 2011

24 didnt mean to post it twice it just happened perhaps if there was an edit feature i could have deleted the extra post but there isnt.
No need for the sarcastic remark for something that was obviously double posted on accident seeing as how they immeadiately followed each other.

29. Daniel craigs my wookie bitch now - October 18, 2011

26 and thats why Spielberg has also positioned Warhorse to come out in theatres a few days latter than Tin Tin, he now realizes ppl hate the dead eyes look of stop motion animation, and that until thats resolved with these movies, they be very succesful here domesticly.
Overseas their is a huge fan base for Tin Tin, that could possibly overcome the whole stop motion animation hatred but here in the usa, audiences arent as familar with the characters, so when they see its motion capture its an automatic i dont want to see this response, it could be the greatest movie ever made, but people here just think the animation is to creepy, because of the dead eyes on the realistic looking humans.
personally i like the motion capture animation style, i think some great performances of been achieved with it, that might not be possible for a movie that was live action.

30. Ctrl-Opt-Del - October 18, 2011

“Geronimo”

Ultra-subtle Doctor Who reference, or just coincidence?

31. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - October 18, 2011

That movie looks funny i cant wait to see pine V hardy

32. jas_montreal - October 18, 2011

looks like a dumb movie. Why is even tom hardy involved with a pathetic film like this?

33. chrisfawkes.com - October 18, 2011

That looks cool.

34. Buzz Cagney - October 18, 2011

#19 oh Keachick!
It was a lame crack at a joke. Think about who Hardy was supposed to be the clone of in Nemesis. ;-)

35. Christopher Roberts - October 18, 2011

I thought somebody had done video mash-up for a moment there…

36. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 18, 2011

#34 Yes, now I get you. I was not connecting Hardy with Picard’s clone…

I don’t know about This Means War being pathetic. It is hard to tell from a 2.30min trailer but it looks like fun and yes, probably over-the-top and outrageously silly at times. A bit like the movie Charlie’s Angels directed by the same McG. That is actually one of my favourite fun movies!

There were also a couple of lines in the trailer which could easily be taken in different ways – kind of had me chortling like the line where “Tom” is saying to “Chris”, something like “we’re friends…” “You would take a bullet for me”. Given the premise and where that might have been said in the movie, I think he may have really wanted to say, “You would take a bullet for me – from me…”? Then there is line where “Chris” asks “Who is that old man?”. He is referring to Chelsea Handler’s character. Anyone read some of the comments made about her and her show, when it was first reported that she was going to be in this movie? Hmmm

Could what I have just written possibly constitute a spoiler?

37. Dee - lvs moon' surface - October 18, 2011

#36.Keachick …

that scene with Chelsea and Reese is very funny…

Chelsea: I’m available to have sex with both of those guys just to test out stuff and see who comes back a winner.

Chris: Why is she listening to that old man?

Tom: I have no idea … ……..LOL…

And… “dontbesillyo” posted first this “editing pic” of the movie on Tumblr…. I think Harry Ballz would love to see it…

38. PEB - October 18, 2011

well now…chris pine & tom hardy in one movie, i’m drooling already.

39. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 18, 2011

Dee, love the “editing pic”. Yes, I think Harry would really appreciate it…LOL!

40. Brian K - October 18, 2011

My opinions, in a nutshell:
“War” looks like mindless fun with some good action scenes, should be a big hit.

Never got the “H&K” humor, Cho is so much better than that. I’ll pass.

TinTin looks like a snoozefest, I predict a bomb for Mr. Spielberg.

MI 4, meh, maybe a redbox trip.

Margin Call looks like the most interesting of them all. Great actors all around, looks well written, we know it was well produced (Quinto), people are STILL pissed about Wall Street ’08. It could do very well. The “Social Network” of ’11?

41. Harry Ballz - October 18, 2011

37+39.

Witherspoon’s chin looks like a friggin’ battering ram!!

As ugly as Hardy is, he’s still too good for that hag!

42. Lt Bailey - October 18, 2011

Other than his voice, I did not know that was Tom Hardy without his Bald head and fake nose to look like a younger Picard.

43. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 18, 2011

I think that Chelsea Handler could be the hag. OMG – did I just write this? “Chris” and “Tom” thought she was an old man. I’d rather have “the chin” than that Handler voice. Sheesh.

Forget the above – give me those “Chris” and “Tom” guys – they’ll do me just fine…:), although, if I must choose, well, you all know where my predilections lie. God, CP is so cute!

44. Harry Ballz - October 18, 2011

Keachick, just to clarify, Witherspoon is a hag, but Handler is an over-the-hill ditchpig.

Handler always seems to have this arrogant sneer on her face. Most unattractive!

45. Dee - lvs moon' surface - October 18, 2011

#43. Hey Keachick…

Do you know who is going to the supermarket gorgeous?…no?… well, but you know where to discover that!… LOL

:-) :-)

46. Keachick - rose pinenut - October 18, 2011

Yes, Dee. I see. Chris is wearing a dark blue/green t-shirt…so he does suit a blue/green shade. I have never seen him wear a straight out green colour though.

Looks like he’s been working out. Those arms certainly have definition and tone. Very nice.

47. Keachick - rose pinenut - October 18, 2011

#44 LOL

48. treksturbation - October 20, 2011

Chris pine is a terrible actor, doesn’t even belong in the same film as Tom Hardy. In fact the majority of the cast of the 2009 incarnation of ‘star trek’ was just absolutely terrible. Sorry but they have absolutely no classical attributes at all, meaning the ability to act! Tom Hardy is trained in several dimensions of acting. He is way out of their league.

49. Keachick - rose pinenut - October 21, 2011

Chris Pine is a good actor and he was fine as a young James Kirk. He does belong in the same film as Tom Hardy. In fact, Chris was already signed up to do This Means War and they went hunting for an actor to complement him. When Hardy’s name was mentioned, most people, including me, thought that Tom Hardy was a good choice, not only because Tom is good but is also a good match for Chris. I take it that you do know what “complement” means.

Chris Pine, in particular, does well as an ensemble actor and is perfectly cast for Star Trek for this reason. However, if one has seen him in Carriers or Smokin’ Aces, he is also capable of taking the lead and standing out. This is especially so in Smokin’ Aces where his actual screentime was minimal compared to the leads, yet it is Darwin Tremor who people remember. Another reason, why he is perfect to play a captain of the USS Enterprise. Nobody wants an overbearing captain, nor do they want a wimp either. Chris can give Kirk that balance.

What is meant by “classical attributes”? Chris Pine is also a theatre/stage actor as well – trained in the theatre, like Tom Hardy. I’m not sure if any of the other present nuTrek actors have as much experience doing live stage performances, except for possibly Zachary Quinto, as Chris Pine has. His performances have been well received by public and critics alike, who can be generally more discerning/exacting than TV/movie audiences/critics often are.

50. CarlG - October 23, 2011

Looks like a cheesy good time — Chris Pine was surprisingly good in Trek’s funny moments, and Tom Hardy is a terrific deadpan snarker. This should be fun!

51. Polly - November 1, 2011

I thought This Means War was going to be some awsome action movie until it….. went the way it went.
Oh well. I’ll see it anyways just because Chris Pine and Tom Hardy are in it. Bummer.
