A new, full length trailer for JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel was released today. Check it out, its embedded below.
AWESOME. Spaceships, explosions, an epic narration by the always-great Benedict Cumberbatch (John Harrison, the villain who many suspect to either be Kahn, Gary Mitchell or some sort of combination of the two) and lots of jumping off of things! The trailer does a great job of highlighting the darker tone of the movie and an overall theme of redemption for Kirk.
Also, hidden in the trailer is a website URL, http://www.areyouthe1701.com/ which lets you sign up to participate in what will surely be another entertaining viral marketing campaign that so many sci-fi movies run these days. Quick note, remember that 1701 is the registration number for the USS Enterprise.
What do you think of the trailer?
Yesterday, news broke that David Hewlett (Rodney McKay in Stargate Atlantis) was possibly making a Stargate Universe movie using the sets he purchased (the shuttle + others) when the show was cancelled. Well, according to GateWorld.net, we were getting a little ahead of ourselves.
So the movie is not Stargate related and is a different sci-fi movie all together, just reusing whatever set pieces he owns. Though I am disappointed that SGU isn’t returning any time soon, I’ll still gladly watch whatever Hewlett is putting together. It may be the sci-fi-comedy project he mentioned a year ago called StarCrossed (source). Or, it may be Debug, another project he mentioned earlier this year (source). Whatever it is, the project is filming in February 2013.
I’ll update with more information as it becomes available.
As of Friday, all 10 episodes of Syfy’s new web series, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, are available on Youtube. It will air as a TV movie (and possibly back-door pilot) and then be released on DVD/ BluRay after. Syfy has said that if it does well in views and sales, they will continue the series, possibly even as a real TV show. They are embedded below, once I have a chance to watch them all at once I will write up a review.

It’s finally here! Check out the first trailer for the upcoming Star Trek movie!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the next Star Trek movie. I know many Trekkies are not huge fans of the JJ Abrams reboot but at least its something. It is currently the only major space-based movie franchise still running so I’ll support it. With that being said, below is the first poster for the movie.
I was expecting something more sci-fi-ish but it still looks like this movie is really going to bring the federation to its knees. It looks to be Benedict Cumberbatch (Gary Mitchell in the film?) standing on top of that heap of rubble. Soon we will get a better look at the film with an extended trailer being linked to the new Hobbit movie coming out soon. Here is the synopsis of the film:
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
