T-Kir writes "Originally from a news link at Trekweb, iFilm has a preview of Star Trek Nemesis in WMP, Real and Quicktime formats, it is also recommended you view with a broadband connection. [ed. snip] All in all a nice piece of eye candy until the films release on December 13th." This is a long trailer with lots of spoilers - you've been warned.

Advertising (5, Interesting)

EyesWideOpen (198253) | more than 11 years ago | (#4722974)

I'm surprised that I haven't seen more (any really) previews on television for Nemesis. Maybe I just haven't caught them but I usually catch at least one television preview for any given big-budget movie during it's marketing time. The only advertisements for Nemesis that I've seen have been posters in theaters when I'm out seeing some other movie. Am I the only one who thinks that this film may suffer from a poor marketing campaign? Heck, I didn't even know when this film was slated to come out until this ./ story!

The lack of PR is strange, even more when you consider it's stuck between a couple of heavy hitters like James Bond, LotR and Harry Potter.

Sure, ST will get its traditional crowd to the theaters, but to get the mainstream to watch, it needs to contend with the aforementioned which are well hyped up. If people decide to go to one movie this Christmas period, it would probably be a toss up between LotR (great movie last time round) and Harry Potter (for both kids and adults). It looks like ST will lose out big time...

It answers this in the header: "News for nerds." Last I heard, the jocks were still leaving most of the seats in any given theatre showing a Star Trek movie empty, thoughtfully leaving them for the nerds.

geeks like fall into two categories-

a movie from either is considered a message from heaven/satan, depending on your point of view.

this is important because now the 50% that are startrek fans are preparing to travel to their mecca(movie theatre) and await a sign.

I saw this trailer in the cinema last night, as it happens, and boy, do the effects look good on a big screen...

But isn't it about time the Next Gen crew went off into quiet retirement and someone else got a shot at a Trek movie? At least this one looks darker and more interesting than some of the recent output...

Re:*looks* fantastic! (5, Insightful)

Accipiter (8228) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723115)

This may very well be the last TNG movie, as the trailers say "A Generation's Final Journey". Seems to hint that this is the cap.

I always believed that after DS9, Trek as a whole should have taken a long hiatus. The gap between TOS and TNG was huge, and TNG turned out to be a fantastic series. But since TNG ended, it's been nothing but rapid-fire Star Trek, most of which can't hold a candle to TNG.

Now they're milking the franchise, and we get crap like Voyager and Enterprise. Insurrection wasn't that great either. I'm hoping Nemesis does something to redeem the TNG movies, as Insurrection kinda put it on a low note. Generations is the best TNG movie so far.

I'd like to see them put the entire franchise to a rest after Nemesis (and kill off Enterprise before the 7 season mark), and let it lie in wait until a team with a GOOD idea a few years down the line can put a fresh and interesting spin on it.

Re:*looks* fantastic! (1)

McDrewbie (530348) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723260)

"Generations is the best TNG movie so far" You said Generations is the best TNG movie ever? I must have gone through a wormhole into some other dimension where that movie is considered good.

Generations? I'm not going to comment on that. Other responses have summed it up.

I'll just say that [I feel] First Contact was the only good TNG movie. It's the only one I've watched more than once and it's the only one good enough that I'll probably watch it again sometime.

Apparently, you are not familiar with the "Even-Odd" rule of Star Trek [ezboard.com] movies. This is an even-numbered movie, and thus, will rock. Think about it:
  1. The V-ger debacle.
  2. KHAAAAAAAN!
  3. The Spock debacle.
  4. The whale one--rocked.
  5. Worst...Debacle...Ever--search for Jebus.
  6. Klingons, in-jokes, etc.
  7. Cross-generation debacle.*
  8. BORG QUEEN.
  9. Zzz..debzzzaczz..zle.zzz...
Obviously, this movie will kick some ass. Go out on a high note!

*I find it odd that you thought -Generations- better than First Contact. Really, that struck me. I know plenty of folks that like Generations, but those folks LOVE First Contact. Borg Queen man! Time travel! Wow. Did you like Search for Spock more than Wrath of Khan (shudder)?

You don't need to see the trailer to determine whether or not it will be a good Star Trek movie. You need only count it's place in the series.
  • Odd numbered Star Trek movies suck.
  • Even numbered Star Trek movies are good/great.

This edition is 10 in the series, and is therefore, a must see.

Behold:

  1. ST: The Motion Picture - Practically unwatchable.
  2. ST: The Wrath of Kahn - Kick Ass!
  3. ST: The Search for Spock - Zzzzzzzz...
  4. ST: The Voyage Home - Pretty Good.
  5. ST: The Final Frontier - Yuck.
  6. ST: The Undiscovered Country - Loved it.
  7. ST: Generations - Ok, but not good.
  8. ST: First Contact - Rocked! (My favorite so far)
  9. ST: Insurrection - Tolerable
  10. ST: Nemesis - Care to take a guess?

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4722995)

I'm not personally hopeful for this installment of the ST movie series. There are some excessively stupid plot elements involved, such as the whole "save us at the last second" thing that has been beat to death, the cliché of cloning and the Data transferrance thing. I don't want to be more specific so as to give away the movie, but if it's anything even remotely like the script summaries I've read linked from AICN, then this movie will be a huge flaming turd on arrival. Yeah, Harry Knowles is a Hutt with a slime trail behind him, but this time I think he's got the right idea. Sad way to end this branch of the movie series with this crew.

Only the biggest trekkies will be at this release. Planning on releasing the movie right inbetween the newest bond and the two towers (that preorder tickets go on sale tomorrow, btw).

Re:Bad timing for Star Trek release (2)

ari_j (90255) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723039)

Exactly. Star Trek is good because it's in that nasty combined 'sci fi/fantasy' genre, and because it's got action and the occasional intrigue (sounds like this one is full of it, but I'm not watching any trailers). Everyone who wants action will go to Bond when it opens, and everyone who wants sci fi/fantasy will just wait for a movie that's guaranteed to be good no matter whether it's an even or odd numbered one in the sequence.

A valid point, however, this is the time of year to roll out your big budget flicks. Though I'll be camping the Thanksgiving week away, I'll have about 10 days of solid vacation from mid-december onward and, like many others, and kids of young ages, too, I'll be standing in line with my wad of bucks and conveniently forgetting what bastards the MPAA are.

Too much info in trailers (5, Insightful)

Undaar (210056) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723092)

Is anyone else sick of trailers giving away key plot developments. To me a perfect trailer is more of a teaser. It should entice you. It should make you want to see the movie. But it shouldn't tell the whole story.

Just my 2 cents (or non-cents *groan*)

Re:Too much info in trailers (1)

stratjakt (596332) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723219)

What plot developments?

The part where they travel through time? Or set their phasers on stun?

Or is it one of the drawn out, boring-as-hell social commentary ST scripts, where they sit around and discuss Klingon/Bejoran/Ferengi/Romulan politics?

I agree whole-heartedly. A few examples of what I would consider trailers that did this right were the "Long Kiss Goodnight" trailer (basically said -nothing- of the second half of the movie) and the 'Dark City' trailer (granted, you saw a fair amount, but you had no real idea of what was going on and it was all jumbled up. OK, on second thought, that was some people's impression of the whole movie as well, but... :p ).

Better yet, how about when the home video package [amazon.com] gives it all away?

I think the real problem is that most movies are so rehashed, uninspired, and predictable these days that we can easily tell what the entire thing will be like regardless of the trailer.

Not Hard to Guess Even Without Seeing it... (5, Insightful)

vjmurphy (190266) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723127)

Let's see: a big bad something threatens the Earth/Galaxy and Picard and Data and some other guys have to beat up the big bad guy and save the day.

Along the way, various minor cast members will have short/throwaway scenes, but most of the real meat of the plot will involve Picard and Data.

There will be a Worf joke.

Not like we haven't seen 3 of these already, you know.

I am excited this is the Tenth movie that is in the Star Trek line of movies, and it is with the old crew of TNG, which i feel was the best series (others may argue) Agreed I hate trailers that ruin the movie, so i will stay away as well. I will definetly be at the opening night showing!

How many spoilers, really? (0)

Criticizing the plot.. (4, Interesting)

ProtonMotiveForce (267027) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723214)

Criticizing the plot of a Star Trek movie is like going out and buying a "Fat Chicks with Huge Jugs" magazine and complaining about the lack of literary value.

It's a Star Trek movie. Of course it's going to be mindless action and sci-fi. Duh. Doesn't mean it's not worth seeing (though it may well not be :).

Re:Criticizing the plot.. (1)

Moloch666 (574889) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723491)

I sort of wish they would make a more hard sci-fi strek movie. I know it wouldn't be much of a hit. Hell it could be a lower budget tv movie. Then all the geeks would see it and a lot of money could be made.

I just hate star trek being dumbed down for the masses.

does he have a divx or a copy of the script?

*Spoilers* (5, Interesting)

OneFix (18661) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723308)

For those that don't already know... this movie is rumored to be the starting point for a new series ("Fall of the Federation") to star Riker, Troi, etc (no Picard or Data)... Read about it here [thmedia.net] ...which would explain the comment Picard makes in one of trailers...

Re:*Spoilers* (2, Interesting)

vaguelyamused (535377) | more than 11 years ago | (#4723535)

A "Fall of the Federation" series could be interesting if done correctly. Maybe have the Federation imploding into civil war with all the other factions (Romulans, klingons,etc) taking and changing sides. It helps that FX technology has improved dramatically. I like TNG but a lot of the lame episodes (holodeck episodes for example) seemed to come at the end of a season when the FX budget was running dry. I also liked the idea of Enterprise but detest Bakula as the captain.
