    I'm liking their casting choices for Spock and Chekov.

    Ditto. I like that they're not going for big stars like the rumors from last year.

    But if it was a ridiculous cast of stars, it might get the stars' fanboys interested in trek. :hs:

    fuck this new star trek bullshit

    what's the chances that it will be done correctly, most of the comic book into movies have been completely destroyed and the chances of this not just being a junk movie with flashy CGI named star trek to get the guaranteed fan boy money coming in is what?

    if done right i'll go many times to see it, but i for 1 am not holding my breath. hollywood doesn't have a good track record when it comes to remakes and shit.

    i hope i'm wrong and it's true to star trek but when they fuck it up entirely i won't be surprised.

    All in all the important thing is it looks like Star Trek might actually get the movie status it has long deserved. With the CG opportunities they can actually make a good movie.

    Yes. I'm saying Nemesis was pretty much the exact opposite of badass. In fact, if nemesis came into direct contact with badass, the two would annihilate and change to pure energy.

    Nemesis was badass in that "Gee maybe I should turn gay and suck dicks" kind of way. There was no badass in that movie what so ever.

    I'm very late to this party since I rarely check this forum, but the casting of Pegg as Scotty is :coold:
