Admiral Buzzkill, hahahahaha

2. Harry Ballz - May 1, 2013

Looks good!

3. Red Dead Ryan - May 1, 2013


4. I am not Herbert - May 1, 2013

don’t like the “feelgood” vicarious vengeance on terrorist plot… =(

5. Phasers on Stun - May 1, 2013

Not first. But can’t wait to see this film. I had lowered my expectations but after reading some of the reviews I’m really excited again.

6. Sterj - May 1, 2013

Um…both clips are the same.

7. Sterj - May 1, 2013

Never mind.

8. Snugglepuff - May 1, 2013

Great to see Trek is becoming cool. Keep up the good work Bad Robot!

9. BrandonR - May 1, 2013

“Admiral Buzzkill blocks Kirks move”


10. Curious Cadet - May 1, 2013

I think the person Harrison beats the hell out of on the bridge of the Vengeance is Marcus, not Kirk.

11. SPATAN555 - May 1, 2013

I am excited. This looks good. Can’t wait!

12. ObsessiveStarTrekFan - May 1, 2013

Pretty intense! Release date can’t come soon enough! Mind you, STID still doesn’t have a classification here in Australia. Oh well, I guess they have 8 more days to sort that out. The advertised running time has gone up from 129 mins to 132 mins, so I guess there is some movement on that front.

13. Theatre Historian - May 1, 2013

The Spock Yell frame, if you read the reverse letter writing it says “Authorized Personel Only”

Cant wait just a few more weeks to see everything come togeather.
The 14th can not come soon enough.

By the way anyone else going to the Entertainment Weekly’s Capetown film feastival screening of Trek 09, Next Monday Night at the Egyptian Theatrein Hollywood? Nimoy will be doing a Q&A following the film.

14. Robnhud - May 1, 2013

Go on, say it, Admiral C*ckblock.

15. Keachick - May 1, 2013

I meant to say earlier that STID trailer was shown on NZ’s TV2 during the screening of the fifth season of Fringe – between 10.45 and 11pm last night (30/4/13). That has been the first bit of advertising that I have seen, but I suspect there has been and will be more…it is starting to feel a bit more real…:)!

16. Anthony Pascale - May 1, 2013

I’ll be at Capetown – will go from LAX to theater (unless my flight is delayed)

17. Diskhanbobulated - May 1, 2013

How long until we see someone using “Admiral Buzzkill” here? I’m giving it 16.5 hours.

18. Mikey1701-A - May 1, 2013

The review of STID is in on digitalspy. They love it.

19. Theatre Historian - May 1, 2013

16) Very cool Anthony!
Keep me updated as well if you think you’ll have time for a tour of the Chinese on the 14th.

20. Sir Sporkington - May 1, 2013

“Spock yells at a window”


21. porthoses bitch - May 1, 2013

“Admiral Buzzkill” heh…heh…yeah I’ve had bosses like that.

I think after all the second guessing and postulating on here we need to follow the long standing Marvel Comic tradition and create the Trek-No-Prize. For those who guessed correctly. There surely have to have been some posts on here that raised an Orci eyebrow or two.

I will give the first one to you Anthony, for keeping the secrets while knowing the answers. And lettting us know just enough to keep coming back day after day. And all the while not playing the AICN game of ” I know something you don’t know.”

22. porthoses bitch - May 1, 2013

I had never seen this

23. porthoses bitch - May 1, 2013

24. bet - May 1, 2013

So far all the early UK reviews have been good with 4 stars from all e.g Guardian, Digital Spy, Den of Geek and so on…

Some reviewers attended a screening yesterday and posted lots of praise
e.g Empire’s

Helen O’Hara ‏@HelenLOHara 11h

Star Trek Into Darkness is massively fun, and *packed* with fan catnip. Cumberbatch fans are going to be very happy.


Adam ‏@adamrubins 13h

Star Trek: Into Darkness is EPIC. A joy from start to finish that stays faithful to the source material whilst thrilling new audiences

And welcome to Hollywood Benedict Cumberbatch. Steals the show and sets him on the path to greatness. A young Ian McKellen

25. Kapten Kerk - May 1, 2013

Love the Admiral Buzzkill GIF!

26. Anthony Pascale - May 1, 2013

Geri, who did the roundup of Australian reviews will be doing the same for UK reviews when they hit critical mass so keep an eye for that. We are also monitoring other countries as well. Eventually Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic in USA will have consensus but that wont be for about 10 days

27. Yar's love child - May 1, 2013

Whenever he’s put back in command of the Enterprise, he’s demoted to Captain Cockblock.

28. Jemini - May 1, 2013

that gif is too funny xD

29. Admiral Buzzkill - May 1, 2013

Just bought me a ticket for May 8th (Stuttgart) :-) *happy*

30. Sir Sporkington - May 1, 2013

@porthoses bitch (22-23)

I just found this poster on ebay a few months ago. Probably my favorite TOS movie. Two of my favorite scenes are depicted right here in the poster.

(1) The punk getting Vulcan nerve pinched on the bus to everyone’s delight
(2) The cop giving Chekov a long, blank stare as if he doesn’t understand a word he’s saying

Also, the hint of the Whale Probe “antenna” flowing into the rainbow flag is a nice integration as well.

Spock wearing his Starfleet uniform is a little odd to me though. I’m pretty sure he never wore it throughout this entire film.

31. ObsessiveStarTrekFan - May 1, 2013

@30. Sir Sporkington

From memory, you are (almost) correct regarding Spock’s uniform. I think the only scene in which he wore it was at the court martial at the end of the movie.

32. Mad Mann - May 1, 2013

Heh. Admiral C Block

C’mon Pike, really? I hate it when that happens.

33. Janice - May 1, 2013

So happy to see PIKE in both those videos—And a couple of photos too.

34. porthoses bitch - May 1, 2013

@30….I think if he wore the white robe with the headband in the poster it wouldnt have the same recognitio factor for the non-fan.

35. Captain, USS Northstar - May 1, 2013

Excellent clips. The way Pike steps in between Kirk and the young lady is reminiscent of the scene we saw yesterday where Carol sits between Kirk and Spock.

Any idea of how things are going at the box office for STID?

36. Star Trek Into Darmok - May 1, 2013

Guess what Spock is yelling through the window ;)

37. ObsessiveStarTrekFan - May 1, 2013

@36. Star Trek Into Darmok

I know what we are supposed to guess – and that guess might even be correct… But at this point all we know is that the word contains a vowel being yelled which probably does not have an ‘oh’, ‘ee’ or ‘eh’ sound. But I could be over-analyzing mouth position. ..

38. gatetrek - May 1, 2013

Is it just me, or does Pike’s uniform look like Admiral Kirk’s uniform from TMP?

39. Jorg Sacul - May 1, 2013

“Pikeblocked” You’ll hear this at Trek conventions this summer!

40. ObsessiveStarTrekFan - May 1, 2013

“Heh. Admiral C Block…C’mon Pike, really?”


43. Charla - May 1, 2013

Love the reference to Pike as being Admiral Buzzkill!! ROFL!!

44. Cant Wait Fer ST:ID - May 1, 2013

What is Spock yelling about?

Admiral Buzzkill.

Makes me wanna see this movie even more.

45. Star Trek Into Darmok - May 1, 2013

@ 37. ObsessiveStarTrekFan / 44. Cant Wait Fer ST:ID

It probably sounds like the word ” can’t ” but with an English accent less the apostrophe and T ;)

46. Star Trek Into Darmok - May 1, 2013

P.S. Does anyone remember like a year ago when boborci made a typo spelling the word “c0nfidence.”?

47. Bird of Prey - May 1, 2013

Kirk is in a bar, flirts with a girl – and then meets Pike. Deja-vu! ;-)

48. The Sinfonian - May 1, 2013


49. AyanEva - May 1, 2013

Finally getting a chance to watch these. That scene with Pike is hilarious and I’m calling him Admiral Buzzkill from now on.

50. Keachick - May 1, 2013

Admiral Pike is now the person to blame for Kirk ending up (yet again) as some lonely, horny celebate who is “married” to the Enterprise by default…deja vu indeed…:(

(Closet) objectophilia rules again.

51. captain spock - May 1, 2013

everyone Watch the big bang theory tomorrow night they having a sneek preview of star trek:ITD on tomorrow night show

52. Keachick - May 1, 2013

#47 – Yeah, what’s with this Star Trek universe? First, it is busy body Cupcake and now it’s Admiral Pike…holy crap…no wonder Kirk’s still got the rebel streak in him.

53. Mark - May 2, 2013

Spock is not ” Yelling at a window”…sure looks like………..

54. Dr. Cheis - May 2, 2013

Admiral Buzzkill GIF is killing me….
