Star Trek is Finished!

I know you Trekbashers out there got a little giddy when you saw the title, but the title is more literal than suggestive foreshadowing. Looks like the new Star Trek film is about to wrap final post production and call it a done project this week.

/Film quotes Abrams:

“We’re just making final tweaks to the movie — we should be totally locked next week. Then we’re going to flash-freeze it so it’s totally fresh for you in May. I can’t wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I’m so grateful to this cast and crew — and to all of you for your interest and patience. We’ll continue to update this page with new info and exclusives, so check back when you think of it. In the meantime, have a happy, healthy, fun holiday! From the last days of the sound mix, JJ”

It sounds like Abrams has a hell of a lot of confidence and is very proud of the job he has done with this film.

His positive hopes for the film and excitement makes me want to see it even more!

You haters can just seal it up in some dollarstore knockoff ziplocks, you can’t take my Christmas/Trek buzz away now!

  1. Hey Rodney, Star Trek’s not dead, just sleeping, but I won’t get into that one again ;) I completely agree that it’s exactly what Trek needed. I’ve been saying for years that the tired old formula just wasn’t working anymore.

    There are many episodes and films from all the series that are absolutely still great, but it’s funny that I find that many of them just don’t hold up to the passage of time. I’m really hoping that they do it right, and I have really high hopes. I’m just trying not to over-hype it.

  2. @Alphie, John and I both agree that Trek is a dead franchise. I have been saying for years (even before Nemesis) that Trek cant float on its own anymore. Its rabid fanbase isnt as rabid anymore.

    This however is a whole new Trek that still respects the old (its still canon while rebooting)

    This is exactly what Trek needed. If its great it will be great all on its own and revitalize the series. If not, nothing would have saved what they had before this idea came out, so its no worse.

  3. @Carlos, it is a sequel. In the tradition of Star Trek there is a time travel plot but this time they go back and change something critical and starts a new timeline in which this event reshapes the directions and motivations of the characters involved.

  4. Totally psyched for this movie. Looking forward to the fresh take on this franchise, in all the movies combined they have never taken any chances always staying very close to what they perceive Trek Fans will love and also won’t. This movie should break that stereotype and hopefully reboot the franchise, they even took a big chance updating the Starship Enterprise but it sorely needed an injection of modern movie making magic. If this franchise is to survive and move on they have to take some chances and gain new fans, not just the die hard trekkies that are always loyal.

    Live long and Prosper ;)

  5. oh and I am excited for the flick but one thing worries me – zachary quinto. He is one of the worst actors around. He may look like spock but he can’t act for shit.

    He is just lucky to be surrounded by Milo ventigmigltialgi and Hayden planeterium on heroes because they make him look better than he is as they actually are the two worst actors working today in any medium. that includes porn.

  6. umm isn’t john the one who goes on about star trek being a dead franchise and thats it over?? isn’t he uncertain if this reboot will be any good or be able to save what he calls a dead franchise?

    I am fairly certain that is what he says.

  7. Pine’s head looks huge on the banner…

    I’m a little worried about Eric Bana as Nero. I hope he has a good motivation to be the villain and that he’s not on some deranged quest to destroy humanity ala Shinzon…

  8. I remember telling my friends we had to be at the theater really early back in 2002 when Nemesis came out and seeing literally 4 people in line in front of us and no one ever showed up behind us. I can’t wait to see this new film! I may even go on opening day, which is something I haven’t done since Superman Returns.
