Star Trek – movie
Release Date: May 8, 2009 (US)
Paramount released several clips of the film that show glimpses of the main character’s personalities.
The first Star Trek clip “Disease and Danger” (at Yahoo! Movies) showed Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy (Karl Urban) getting all antsy as a shuttle prepares to take off with passengers, and he happens to sit beside James Kirk (Chris Pine). Ugh, Urban sounds so convincing with the popping-eyeballs comment!
Kirk tries to hit on Uhura (Zoe Saldana) in a bar and stirs up trouble, in the clip “A Shot at Love” (MTV Movies). You can tell this Kirk guy is a trouble-maker everywhere he goes, including inside a warp-speeding Starfleet! (“Answer Me” clip at Apple) Is this the first time Kirk meets Spock (Zachary Quinto)? Make Spock angry?! Kirk is kidding, right, he obviously doesn’t know the guy yet. But then again, Kirk’s attitute may just get Spock to emote later in the film! Oh, but did you get a look at the fleet’s bridge? OMG everything is glass! So different from the awkward, bulky days of Shatner!
Watch the clips after the cut (YouTube version) –
And just to say this, but it’s still weird watching Zachary play anyone other than Sylar. Spock looks so tame and angelic!
