Can movie studios please STOP RELEASING TRAILERS THIS WEEK! Not saying that I don’t appreciate it, but come on! I’m unemployed here, I have to do something other than update this website!
Anyway, check out the Beastie Boys’ new music video for “Sabotage” and some quick flashes of a more upbeat Star Trek than the last one. And I finally get to have Idris Elba in a franchise I love. Also having Simon Pegg writing and Justin Lin directing, you could say I’m more excited for this one than Star Trek: Into Darkness. If you’ve not seen Lin’s work, just know he’s the guy that did Fast Five (reinvention of the Fast & Furious franchise to make it actually interesting, oh and get The Rock and Vin Diesel to fight each other).
He also did all of the paintball episodes of the TV show “Community”. Those episodes had the best comedy and action I’ve ever seen since the original Die Hard. So, you could say I’m excited. However, I really don’t understand the title of “Star Trek” in this series since most of the action seems to take place on Earth or other planets. Kirk says it himself in the trailer: “No ship, no crew….” I would just like to see a little more *stars* in my Star Trek. Is that so much to ask?
