Cool. I’ll ask him about the title.

I will ask him, if “Star Trek into darkness§ will be a new, great, gorgeous “Star trek” or just “Mission Impossible” in Star Trek Shirts. Hope the first.

“What will be the endcredit of BC role?”

What happened in the 00:08?

RE: 08
I think JJ is reacting to the script he was reading – being self deprecating about the “exciting chance” to ask him a question.

I have to say the cinemas in my city in Germany have very little to none posters or banners of Star Trek Into Darkness. Every other movie like fast and furious, the gatsby, iron man, pacific rim, wolverine has its advertisements. Seems nobody here is aware of a new star trek movie. :(

So much for the international promotion efforts…

Hey Stephan

In Essen for example some cinemas won’t even show the Preview on May 8th! I have to look for another otherwise I will go mad!

I ask myself if the big exploration will be unveiled after the World Premiere in Sydney on April 23rd

6. Really? Wow. My local theatre — in Canada — has one, inside, in the back corner past the bathrooms. You don’t see it unless you’re trying to find somewhere to talk on your cell phone. Apparently, they’re not doing cardboard stands? Maybe they’ll step up this month…

I was in Berlin when the last Mission Impossible came out – and there were posters everywhere.

@8, Jack,

Same here in Florida. The Ironman 3 stand-up is at the end of the main hallway, so you see it from the entryway all the way back, and it’s HUGE.

Star Trek has that stupid first poster with all the grey and black and BC with his back to the viewer. And it’s in an alcove. A *fine* job of promotion, I must say!

They’d better step it up or we may never see a third movie – the second one will have been such a massive lo$$ to Tinymount. I mean Paradopes.

@9 Iron Man 3 comes out 2 weeks before Star Trek. There’s no need to advertise so early especially when another movie has the limelight. There’ll be a 2 week stretch between IM3 (The biggest movie of summer) and Trek. It’ll be fine, it’ll make about 300 million. Relax.

I have a question for JJ…

April 12, 2013 4:08 am


This is not correct for Germany. Start trek comes out one week after iron man! And Wolverine will be released in June or July and has way more advertisements.

It looks like JJ was dossing off he looks tired , asked him a questions on facebook page, hope he answers at lease one of them, hope not to many lens flares in this movie. only 35 more daysto the premire .

I submit this letter to JJ Abrams:

It’s by a Trek fan who is making an appeal to maintain the integrity of Star Trek.

Why did you decided to cast Benedict into the movie
