Even over a weekend, more tidbits for the new Star Trek movie still come in. Today there is a big one in the form of a preview for the upcoming issue of Countdown Comic book, full of Nero spoilers. But we also have some more stuff, including a real Italian version of the trailer, a fake new poster, a response to that angry San Franciscan, and more. [comic Spoilers below]
Countdown #3 preview gives hints at Nero motivations
[spoilers] The “Star Trek Countdown” comic book series is a prequel to the new Star Trek movie, set in the post Star Trek Nemesis 24th century. The previous two issues have already given us some insights into the events that lead up to the film, focusing on Spock and the the villain Nero (see TrekMovie reviews: #2 & #3). Now AICN has an exclusive preview for Issue 3, which is where we really start to see Nero’s motivations, and also where we see Nero get his tats. Check it out at AICN, but there are spoilers. [Note: AICN refers to the TNG era as ’25th century,’ but that is just a mistake…there isn’t a new 25th century element being added to the mix]
Nero gets his ink in Star Trek Countdown #3
Olympic class ships appear in Countdown #3
Countdown #3 hits comic shops this Wednesday. Look for the TrekMovie review early this week.
Here is more proof that the new Star Trek is molte bene in any language — check out the official Italian version.
New poster NOT released…yet
Trek fans are a creative lot and often like to make their own posters and desktops, we have even featured many here, but we always distinguish the real from the ‘fan made.’ However, sometimes the fakes work their way into the media, like the following poster which was reported on by a number of sites in the last few days. TrekMovie checked with Senator Vreenak, and it is definitely not a new Star Trek poster, or even a poster made by Paramount.
It’s a faaaaaaake
On the subject of posters, we have seen lots of convention speical posters and teaser posters, but we have yet to see the official movie poster (or posters), but those should be coming up soon. So stay tuned for that.
Trailer Remix w/ official site music
Speaking of fan made stuff, Argentine reader Juan Pablo de La Fuente sent us his new fan made trailer using the new looped music on the official movie website. Note that even though most assume the music is from Michael Giacchino’s score for the film, Paramount has not confirmed this.
A message to that San Francisco guy
Last tidbits we pointed to a video by Zennie Abraham who has some issues with the San Francisco skyline as depicted in the Star Trek trailers. This got a lot of play on the Interwebs on this site and beyond, so another fan has a simple message for Zennie (and one many people could embrace).
Thorsten’s Art Gallery – Pike
Thorsten Wulff has worked his way through the entire classic bridge crew in his ‘Trek Cast As Art’, series. However, our resident artist and designer is not done yet. Today he shows off his Captain Pike poster ala Uncle Sam.
If that isn’t enough for you, there is even more
- The first announced tickets for the Star Trek movie sold out quickly at the Hollywood Arclight, we are looking to see if they will add additional screens for more midnight Thursday shows.
