New Star Trek Full Length Official Trailer

While The Blot has always been a big fan of The Next Generation and the last few seasons of Deep Space Nine, I definitely wouldn’t consider myself a Trekkie. In fact, I’ve always preferred Star Wars to Star Trek. But despite my ambivalence towards the original Star Trek, this trailer has me uber-excited about the upcoming film. The special effects and fight scenes look incredible and I can’t wait to see J.J. Abrams’ take on Kirk, Spock, Bones and the rest of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.

I just hope Paramount is able to market this movie successfully since a majority of the movie going public perceives all things Star Trek negatively. Over the years the franchise has really pigeonholed itself into this preconceived stereotype of only for sci-fi geeks. I really don’t understand it considering how popular comic book themed movies and all things Star Wars are in the current pop culture climate. It is something Paramount and Abrams will have to work hard to overcome. In the meantime check out the first full length official trailer for the Star Trek reboot/prequel movie premiering on May 8, 2009 below.
