:shock:

That would be outstanding.

I'm read a ton of speculation on all this. Again, I don't really care which way it turns, but I think Khan is who I'd be most disappointed in (if disappointed is even an applicable word here) because he's so obvious.

I'm still curious to find out who Peter Weller is playing, though. Seems interesting that there's no real talk about that. Maybe it was announced and I missed it?

More likely a new character with elements of him in there.

It could still be him...it seems like they're trying to protect some sort of reveal. I'm less interested in the villain's name than I am whether or not the supposed drama for the main characters plays out a little better than it did in the last one.

i mean, Hollywood can do anything but to have this be Khan would be stupid. i'm not getting into why because i figured all of you here are big enough nerds to realise why.

make me proud.

9 minute trailer before The Hobbit. It was a bit much.

Was it a trailer or the first 9 minutes of the film? I thought it was a "prologue" a la The Dark Knight/Rises.

It was described as a trailer by the theater staff member that warned us it was 9 fucking minutes long. Apparently at previous showings people thought they were playing the wrong movie.

Though it definitely could have been seen as a prologue, because it showed an actual scene with continuity, instead of just a series of clips. But I'm not sure where this will fall into the chronology of the movie itself so prologue might not be accurate either.

Gotcha.

That 9 minute preview/prologue/whatever is the only reason I considered seeing The Hobbit in IMAX. I'm pretty excited for Into Darkness.

That is just ridiculous. I love the ST franchise, but I really don't want to see that much footage in a trailer. What's the point of that?

Especially before I'm sitting in a 2+ hour movie.

WB did the same thing with The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Based on their success, I'd say it's time to get used to it. This kind of thing is going to continue to happen a lot from now on.

You know you've got a great stage voice when you can make lines like "You think you are safe? You are not safe" sound like really cool writing.

Following the reveal earlier this month that Benedict Cumberbatch's Star Trek Into Darkness villain goes by the mysterious name of "John Harrison," GyaO! (via TrekMovie) caught up with director J.J. Abrams and Cumberbatch himself.

"When J.J. described the role to me… he described someone who was, in movie terms, a mixture of Hannibal Lecter, Jack in 'The Shining,' and the Joker in 'Batman,'" Cumberbatch said. "...He's someone who has enormous physical strength. He's someone who is incredibly dangerous, both as a physical entity and through the use of various technologies and weapons and who performs acts of what I would describe as terrorism. He's also a psychological master. He manipulates the minds of those around him to do his bidding in a very, very subtle way."

"His name is John Harrison and he is sort of an... average guy who works in an organization called Starfleet," Abrams added, "and he turns against the group because he has got this backstory and this kind of amazing secret agenda. After two very violent attacks, one in London and one in the US, our characters have to go after this guy and apprehend him. And it is a far more complicated and difficult thing then they ever anticipated. 'Into Darkness' is very much about how intense it gets and really what they are up against."

I originally thought the 2009 Star Wars reboot was a run away homerun hit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. However, thanks to the internet, I've discovered it's actually a really divisive film. So, if you don't typically like Star Trek, or sci-fi, or genre fiction, maybe keep away from it.

As a huge, life-long, Star Trek fan, I can say I thought the first one was a blast. I loved it. And it gets better every time I see it. It's flawed, sure (plot holes, etc) but it's so well done, well acted, well directed and well conceived that the flaws become an afterthought at best. You almost have to hunt around for things to dislike (again, just my opinion).

im a huge sci- fi fan...and i did like the old movies, saw most of them and some of the movies the next generation did too.
But i dont know why exactly, i have never been a full time star trek fan.
