A source at Paramount Pictures (along with various other movie websites) is confirming this description of the upcoming reboot, J.J. Abams' Star Trek
teaser trailer (which you won't have long to see any way since its alleged that this'll be attached to the release of Cloverfield
on Friday). At this point I get I should set off the "Spoiler Alert" . . .
SPOILER ALERTSlow Paramount logo.
Bad Robot logo.
Black, suddenly some sparks (very saturated [with] Michael Bay-looking cinematography).
We hear an old NASA radio countdown: “30 seconds and counting.”
Close up of a timeless guy with goggles leaning down doing some wielding and sparks flying around.
He lifts his googles. Slightly futuristic head covering. It’s not a space suit, by the way.
The dude leans down and wields some more. He’s standing on big metal.
“From director J.J. Abrams” (blue font with a nice lens flare).
Some Kennedy speech about space flight: “The eyes of the world now look to space.”
People walking around the saucer section. The wielders are everywhere – showing size.
We hear: “The eagle has landed.”
Huge overhead shot pans across [and] suddenly [shows] what looks like miles of scaffolding underneath.
Title: “The future begins”.
Really impressive shot from … people all over the ship and you can see a huge industrialized city or shipyard in the background. It’s being built on Earth [rather than] in space.
Neil Armstrong: “One small step for man…”
Camera slowly cranes up over the whole saucer section.
Then we hear Leonard Nimoy’s line: “Space. The final frontier…” and the familiar “Star Trek” theme horns.
The shot continues [and reveals] the writing on the top of the saucer – “U.S.S. Enterprise” – and these huge aircraft-like warp engines in the background. Technically, the first reveal of what we’re seeing.
Just the Starfleet log (no title).
Title card: “Under construction”.
Yeah this sounds about right to me. I'm actually looking forward to this one even though I'm not much of a Trekkie . . . Trekker . . . Whatever . . . although just for shits and giggles I did actually do an overnight outside the Cinerama Dome (know known as the Arclight) in Hollywood to see the first screening of Star Trek 3: The Search For Spock
But by then I was so wired on coffee (unfortunately Meth hadn't been born yet) that I was pretty much in a caffeine-induced fugue state the entire time. Adding insult to injury I was then interviewed by "Entertainment Tonight" for my thoughts, which pretty much consisted of "The clouds are saying hello" and "I can shit gum drops of all different flavors". Hopefully this theatrical experience will be a much better one . . . Especially since miracle drug Meth is now available for purchase.
