Trailer Update: Star Trek Preview Showing At Most Theaters

In the wee hours of Friday morning we first got wind that some fans were not catching the Trek trailer their viewing of Quantum of Solace. Although it is clear that the trailer is showing at theaters throughout North America, TrekMovie estimates around one out of four (maybe as many as one out of three) screenings does not show the Trek trailer. TrekMovie has discussed this with Paramount and may have an explanation. 

 

Enclosed, not attached
Sources at Paramount confirm that the Trek trailer was sent out with Quantum of Solace, but that it was ‘enclosed’ and not ‘attached.’ This is an important distinction with regards to trailers. An ‘attached’ trailer is literally on the same reel as the main film, making it almost a given that the theater run the trailer. This is done for trailers from the same studio as the feature film and why the Star Trek teaser trailer was seen at every showing of Cloverfield back in January.

However, MGM is the studio behind Quantum of Solace, so the Star Trek trailer (along with many other trailers, including one for Watchmen) are part of the package of trailers ‘enclosed’ with the Bond film. This is also standard practice. Apparently there are so many trailers ‘enclosed’ with  the new Bond film, that some theaters are picking and choosing which ones to show.

Call ahead
Bottom line is that you will probably see the Star Trek trailer with your showing of Quantum of Solace, but there does not seem to be any pattern for which theaters are choosing to run it and which ones are not. Your bet bet is to call your local theater ahead of time.

What did you think?
If you did catch the trailer, let your fellow fans know what you thought below (and vote in our poll). And maybe let your fellow Trekkies know who was showing it.  And if they didn’t show it, let fans know what theater wasn’t showing it.

 

shaky cam versions?
As noted in the TrekMovie review, it is recommended for this trailer to be seen on the big screen. Otherwise, it will be online Monday morning in HD, so if you can’t make it to a theater, try to resist the urge to click those less satisfying cam links.

Just got out of QoS in Fayetteville Ar. Definitely no trailer. Little frustrating. Luckily the movie was good. I was definitely not in a good mood.

Well all I can say is don’t look for it on 86st in New York, it’s not playing with
Quantum of Solace…and the 007 movie was not that good.

P>S. that is ANY theatre in Fay AR appears to be a no show for star trek… I did however see a preview for the new will smith movie…..YAY.

I saw the trailer at the Premiere Cinemas theater in Burleson, Texas. After reading all the “spoilers” and descriptions, I thought I’d be able to sit through the trailer and analyze it methodically. Boy, was I wrong.

I slid to the edge of my seat, grinning like a fool, and barely restrained myself from hooting and hollaring the whole way through.

Yeehaw!

I’ve watched QoS in The Netherlands.. No trailer!!!!
But, does anyone has a cam-version online..?!??!!?!??!!?

Quarksbartender

007 movie was good. About on par with the decent ones.

“Just got out of QoS in Fayetteville Ar. Definitely no trailer. Little frustrating. Luckily the movie was good. I was definitely not in a good mood.”

thanks for the warning. i live in Lowell AR and am waiting anxiously to see both the movie and the trailer.

No trailer here with Bond in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Yes I’m just a tad ticked off that I spent $22 to watch a movie on a Friday for the sole reason of seeing this trailer and it wasn’t there.

Bond however is GREAT. Much better than even the last one.

Okay, I JUST noticed something! If you pause the trailer on one of the scenes where you see the Enterprise, you will definitely see that we may be seeing more than one version of the ship. Tell me if I’m going crazy, but if you look closely at the struts for the warp nacelles, they are straight, just like on Enterprise we’re used to seeing (as opposed the the bent/curved struts on the pic of the new ‘retro’ Enterprise we’ve been looking at the past couple days.

Anyone else agree with me on that analysis??

Sprout

My wife wondered why I wanted to see Bond, then after the Trek trailer ran she knew! She said, “I hate to admit it, but that looked pretty good.” Can’t wait for it to come online so I can analyze it better. After the two early Kirk scenes, everything was came so fast it was sensory overload.

Chris

Called ahead and made sure the Trailer was going to show in the showing I went to. The trailer was great. Can’t wait for Monday to watch it a few more times.

Please don’t download aqua’s version…their website is about to crash due to bandwidth issues.

OMG OMG OMG!!!

Green-Blooded-Bastard

No, not straight. Curved, slightly, but curved.

“Voyager” will go down in history as a great man. Kid delivered.

Style!

I hope this wasn’t some ploy Paramount had to get us to see some wack Bond film!!!

I am NOT following that link! If I have to wait and watch this thing online, I’ll be damned if I’m not watching it via Apple or the official site…!

Three more days is not that much more to wait…but it’s still killing me!!!

G

Yeah, you’re right.. I think my eyes were playing tricks on me. Just goes to show you that you shouldn’t judge based on one single camera angle.

This wouldn’t be a “ploy” to get us to see Bond. Paramount has nothing to do with Bond. They have no interest in it at all, other than the fact that it is the movie showing right now that is likely to give their trailer the most exposure.

I followed the link and it’s NOT THERE!!! I’m dying here! DYING!!!!

Mo

too late…. everythings gone… sorry folks

Green-Blooded-Bastard

Damn, either his server crashed or they took it down already, but for those of you that saw it…

…it was marvelous.

Crap on a monkey. I just went by the theater in Collierville, TN, and bought a ticket for the 10pm QoS– seconds after that, I ran into friends coming out of the movie and found out that the Trek trailer is not being shown. I still want to see QoS, but I am really bummed!

go there its not the whole thing but WOW

Ed G.

someone bring this back!!!!!

As for “attached” versus “enclosed,” the Arclight Sherman Oaks (!!) still managed to mess up the previous trailer; I saw Cloverfield at noon on opening day, and no trailer was attached!!! :(

I feared a repeat today in Hollywood, at the Cinerama Dome, when I saw that my QoS screening (and doesn’t that sound vaguely Klingon) was in digital projection… I feared there wasn’t a digital version of the trailer.

But there was.

As for my response to it: Meh.

Let’s just say the audience – at the first show, Cinerama Dome, Hollywood, geeked up James Bond/genre fans – applauded after only one trailer – for Watchmen.

Star Trek – sound of crickets. And I understand why. Very little about this film felt like Star Trek. And it was all in such short bursts – like “MTV style times twelve” – that afterwards, I still wasn’t sure what I had seen.

There was also a lot of people in the theatre JUST to see the trailer, standing along the wall in front of the elevated seats in the back. They filed out after the trailers… studio types? I didn’t recognize any Supreme Court members, although they struck me as likely candidates to be there, checking reactions.

I really hope TNPTB (The New Powers That Be) take a look at the audience response to this trailer — and adjust the marketing accordingly. There was very little “majesty” or grandeur… and even less of the characters, which is the whole reason to remake Star Trek to begin with.

How do I split an Mp4 file in half?

Ben Luna

I got to see the trailer today as I work with a local theater. It truly is awesome. The special effects are incredible! The Enterprise looks so good on the big screen. The bridge and other ship sets look good. The intensity is there for sure to scream Epic!

If you had doubts before, this will change your mind. Any guesses on how long it will be before someone posts a pirate version?

i repost my spoilers from the older thread here.

SPOILERS

the new transporter effect is swirling sparks.
klingons have movie foreheads.
corridors are white and curved.
there is a giant red arthropod monster.
one scene is mirror-inverted :D
the enterprise pylons are curved inwards :S

montreal paul

WOW. This movie is going to kick some series a$$. The trailer looks great! My wife watched it with me and even she thinks it is something she’d like to see.. and she doesn’t like Trek. Way to go JJ!

Green-Blooded-Bastard

I’m fairly certain Quick Time Pro will allow an MP4 to be split.

Smike van Dyke

Interesting! Haven’t seen the trailer yet but the use of Brian Tyler’s score from “Children of Dune” is intriguing for a couple of reasons:

1. I believe parts of it were also used for an extended 5 minutes supertrailer for the first Narnia movie back in 2005.

2. Brian Tyler started his mainstream career working on the second season of a certain series called “Enterprise” (“Regeneration” was one of the episodes he scored)

3. “Children of Dune” is one of the scores ever composed.

4. Not using original scores has been done time and again. Te most impressive example certainly was the use of Clint Mansell’s “Requiem For A Dream” cues in the trailer for “LOTR: The Return of the King”…That one ruled!

trekmaster

No, there are not two versions of Enterprise. One of the ships is the Kelvin! What player do I need to watch mp4-files!?

DarthLowBudget

So, I’ve tried to call my theater, but I can’t get past their damned automated system and talk to a real person.

“… hoping they show the trailer at the Uptown in DC!”

I lived in DC for about 8 years (from early 1998 to mid 2005) and I LOVE the Uptown! It is one of the best theaters in the country! I hope for your sake it’s on!

I was going to go to the Majestic Bay here in Seattle to see the 4:30 show, but something came up and I could not get free until just now (about 5:00). However, I will try to go tomorrow.
And FYI to all of you in the Puget Sound Area… I’ve called and confirmed that they ARE showing the trailer.

@42 trekmaster – Quicktime plays mp4, and quicktime pro edits them

The trailer was playing on the Bond film at the various theaters in Grand Rapids, Michigan including Studio 28, the largest free-standing theater complex in the world. Sadly we won’t be able to enjoy the film when it opens in May as this theater will be closing on November 23rd… permenantly.
