I've read a few places the same song was in Abrams' first Trek.  I can't recall one way or the other.

I think the trailer looked horrible.  Like they hired the guy who directed Fast & Furious to make a Star Trek movie.

The song was used in the first movie in 2009, so maybe some continuity with Kirk's childhood?

And I didn't think we could find something worse than Batman V Superman.

Yeah, it appeared early in the first movie:

As much as I hated the last one, the trailer actually doesn't look bad to me, but then again it's a teaser showing nothing about the plot.

Yeah, the Sabotage had to do with Kirk stealing his step dad's classic car and destroying it because he was an immense **** as a child I guess, but it was ok in that film...  It looks interesting.  I liked both the previous movies enough though.  The first was great I thought, and the 2nd one was ok despite many plotholes.  It was still just fun to watch.  Nothing intellectual to it.

Then again I never considered the previous Trek movies too "deep" either. 

I enjoyed the first one a lot though, and actually my GF did too, which I was kind of shocked.  She hates Star Trek generally.

This is where the frontier pushes back

Really, does the villain have writers room  to come up with that?

Wondering what the big secret is...THE TWIST...right, this isn't JJ Abrams.

So maybe this is Point Break in space.

Separatists vs. the Republic Federation?  Sounds like a great original concept to me.

Easy pass.  I waited to catch 'Into Darkness' on cable, and I think I'll probably be okay waiting for this one to make it to cable or Netflix, too.

I think the movie looks fun. I can't tell what the heck is going on but I assume we will soon.

How many times is Starfleet going to let the new Kirk get the Enterprise and destroy it?  That is one thing that will get old rapidly.  Three movies, three times the Enterprise gets trashed.  I think it would be cool to see another angle besides blow up most of the ship.

This takes place 2 and 1/2 years into their 5 year mission.

So they waited that long to trash the ship again.

It's not armored to look pretty and make weight requirements!  Kirk kills ****.  Expect some dings! ;D

I'm still waiting for a new Star Trek movie that really features the music that I feel speaks true of Star Trek (The famous Motion Picture/Next Generation theme)
