I’ve seen “Star Trek”. I saw it last night at the great Paramount Theater on the Studio Lot and have to say, the film is really great. If you were nervous about the cast, don’t be. If you thought J.J. Abrams is just a TV director…he’s stepped up his game to the next level. And if you were somehow thinking Paramount was going to nickel and dime the franchise like they’ve done in the past, the special effects in this film are going to shock you.
Simply put, “Star Trek” has opened the summer movie season with a huge home run and I don’t know how anyone will be disappointed.
Anyway, earlier today I spoke with the entire cast as a reporter for Collider and our partner website Omelete out of Brazil. In the coming week I’ll be posting interviews with everyone, but until then, here are 6 clips from the movie. Take a look.
And for the three people that don’t know the synopsis:
The greatest adventure of all time begins with “Star Trek,” the incredible story of a young crew’s maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before!
Finally, I’ve joined the ever growing world of Twitter.
