Haha that trailer is pretty good. Probably needs some more blood though…

CmdrR

That’s a @#$can funny trailer!

nasty man

TOS just looks like something from a QT film..

Garth Lorca

If you cut TOS like that, it actually fits with QT a lot, minus the graphic gore that’s gonna be part of the actual QT movie.

Let’s just hope there’s a Paramount around to make this movie by the time QT has finished his real 9th movie.
It doesn’t look too good. The studio has already had some rough years, falling behind Lionsgate on an annual basis. But 2018 looks especially grim. There are two potential blockbusters:
Bumblebee, competing against flocks of Christmas releases and only getting one week of release within 2018.
MI6, which is far from being a guaranteed success, was certainly costlier than expected due to the long pause caused by Tom Cruise’s injuries.
And the rest of Paramount’s release schedule… my gosh… Annihilation has already been sold off to Netflix internationally.
Cloverfield 3 aka The God Particle is a reshoot mess that cut half of its original premise to shoehorn it into the Cloverfieldverse and might not get a cinematic release at all according to recent rumors.
Overlord… okay, Nazi zombies on D-Day, it doesn’t get any campier than this, does it?
Well, Action Point, a COMEDY based on a REAL-LIFE theme park that had ACTUAL people killed in horrid accidents doesn’t sound like a good idea either.
That leaves us with lame-looking run-of-the-mill CGI comedy Sherlock Gnomes and a no-name horror movie called A Quiet Place.
If MI6 bombs, Paramount might fall behind Focus Features this year, ending up in 8th spot.

I hope they have a plan how to survive 2018. If not… Star Trek needs to be sold to a studio that can handle it, with or without QT at the helm.

Dr Beckett

Star Trek should be sold to Disney. I jest not. They treat all their properties with respect.

Curious Cadet

@Dr Beckett — Disney is a sausage maker. They may make mostly fine sausage, but it’s still a tripe casing filled with stuff you’d never eat if separated into its individual parts. “Respect” is not the word I’d use.

Shunk McGuffin

@Curious Cadet – You raise a good point. On the other hand, Paramount’s “Star Trek Factory” of the 1990s was a sausage factory of its own. “Voyager” was pure product.

Dr Beckett

Brilliant! These guys know their Tarantino and Trek – spot on!

Danpaine

That trailer put a smile on my face, I needed that laugh today.

“The captain’s log isn’t the only wood he’s packing…” Hysterical.

Curious Cadet

I love how they bleep “Vul”-can, to suggest a “colorful metaphor”, and it works so naturally. I now have new respect for the TOS writers … I only just now “see what they did there”.

Marja

The simultaneous credits thing is funny. DS9’s theme stands out, as it always has to me [the improved version after S4].

Marja

“Tarantino’s Trek” had me screaming with laughter. What a great send-up of TOS. And Tarantino. Though I must point out, not enough blood!

Alex

This is absolutely amazing! Love the beeps! :D

Dom

Reminds me of Danger 5. Kept on expecting a birdman to walk in and remind the team to kill Hitler!! ;)

The Dude

Dude….why use such a sorry ass copy?

Other sources available are infinitely superior…

But….it was funny. Good editing- etc.

Cygnus-X1

Ha! I like it.
