Peter Weller is in this fwiw, which is promising. otoh it looks like they are tackling the Kahn storyline, which is not promising.

yeah it's kind of angry-making, the laziness. was really hoping they would come up with a good, new villain.

Like Nero from the first reboot movie? Oh wait...

the feeling is surreal (snoball), Friday, 24 February 2012 18:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol exactly. The best Star Trek villains were always old hams... was trying to think of aging British actors they could rope in for such a role but couldn't come up with anyone besides Anthony Hopkins :(

Artful Dodderer (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 24 February 2012 18:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Bana's easily the worst thing about the first movie, luckily he's fairly incidental to all the other great stuff

I have no interest in the rest of this ST series, but they don't seem to have cast an actor as Khan, so maybe that's just some red herring?

Please no Khan.

I can tell there's going to be a million slash fictions launched from that first picture alone.

it's Star Trek, that could have been a picture of Zachary Quinto holding a Tribble and it would have launched a million slash fictions

I've seen this Cumberbatch in a couple films and he's really made no impression whatsoever on me.

Literal Facepalms (Dr Morbius), Friday, 24 February 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

Well, ST has already tackled Sherlock Holmes.

So maybe it is a Sherlock/ST crossover.

the feeling is surreal (snoball), Friday, 24 February 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

but they don't seem to have cast an actor as Khan

they cast the guy from Carlos. Originally it was Benicio Del Toro but he dropped out. can you think of any other reason they'd be eager to attach a big name latino actor to the film?

However, Roberto Orci considers bringing Khan back a risky venture, saying "why take the chance?"

also casting another Latino actor as an Indian character wd be weird

yeah nothin on iMdB about Edgar Ramirez

Artful Dodderer (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 24 February 2012 18:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Rumor has it they've been researching years of fan fiction to help construct the screenplay. It sounds like the new villain will be plucked straight out of trekfanfiction.net

I wish people wouldn't use "callback" for "reference." A callback is the reason a Broadway gypsy can't have sex with me on a specific day.

Fighting neoliberal Federation complacency one stargate visitor at a time. (Actually that was the series that had baseball as a plot point, wasn't it? Avery Brooks's character was some sort of fan of the game.)

Kirk: [hailing Khan] This is Admiral Kirk. We tried it once your way, Khan, are you game for a rematch? Khan, I'm laughing at the "superior intellect."

im assuming abrams took too long with super 8 and paramount didnt feel like getting someone else to do it. they had a 2012 release date set but when abrams finally committed there wasnt even a real script and it had to get pushed back

Star Trek Into Darkness. Hopefully they go the full Die Hard route with the sequels.

Don't know if they'll do it with this one, but I suspect the writers could revive all the Vulcans with the plot of Star Trek III.
