Star Trek 2 beams down a 2012 release date

01.11.2010

It may be the Mayan apocalypse, but before we all start piling into giant doomsday arks, we’re going to get to see some pretty damn good movies, one of them now being the untitled STAR TREK sequel.

According to ComingSoon, Paramount has announced a June 29th, 2012 release date, which is a prime blockbuster slot as it’s right before the Fourth of July. I’ve heard a few immediate complaints about how far away this is, and damn, is summer 2012 EVER far away (we’ll be having our next presidential primaries!), but I think that’s actually a good thing, as J.J. Abrams isn’t someone who should be rushed. Just ask Lost fans. Alright, well maybe in that case he should have rushed a little more.

There are no plot details as of yet, which is to be expected, and so the internet will continue the endless Khan vs. Klingon vs. Borg debate as to who exactly should villanize the cast, all of whom are expected to return.

Extra Tidbit: My vote? Borg, I think Abrams could do some wicked cool shit with them. But hey, there's always a third movie...

Not Borg yet...

Though Borg-meets-first-gen would be a good concept, I'd go with Tribbles.

No, just kidding. And not Kahn either. Take any of the other 100 villains from the old series and twist it into something cool.

More Green Girl, Indeed!

What else can I say! Her small part in the first movie could really lead to some fun in the second film.

Orci & Kurtzman

Also...it's not that Orci & Kurtzman don't do good work. They did great on MI3 and on Alias etc... It's just that they tend to cater to the LCD, a lot. And I don't want that in Trek. 'Course, by most fan boy standards, I'm just an old fart... so who cares? It's all about butts in seats anyway and the dumbing down of the audience.

BORG?

The 'transformers hacks' were responsible for everything that was wrong in that picture. They did their best work back when they were working as showrunners on Xena: Warrior Princess. I can't blame them for writing what the LCD wants to see and making a boatload of cash, I'd do the same thing if I could. But I can hope that they wouldn't dumb down a property that's older than they are. There won't be a timely writer's strike this time to allow J.J. to salvage a good film like he did last

As for the Borg, well, if the original crew has to face off against them, there will be no TNG, 'cause the Feds and the Klingons and everyone would be wiped out.

Listen, and understand. Those borg are out there. They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

I'm gonna go with the Borg too. The classic crew never got to fight them and I think it would be interesting to see that encounter, like bad fan fiction only good. The Klingons have been done to death and I really think it would be better to have them as rivals of the federation who ultimatly have to side with the federation to face a common enemey. This could also serve as device to bring the Klingons into the federation earlier than Undiscovered Country. And as far as Khan, short of just

And as far as Khan, short of just remaking Space Seed/Wrath of Khan, I really don't think they can do anything unique with Khan without just pissing everyone off. So I say Borg, no Khan, and Klingon truce.

Perfect Timing

To release Star Trek in 2012 is pretty good timing,since next year is gonna be loaded with blockbusters anyways. Also it means they wont rush the sequel and if Abrams directs?, it definitely will be good.

Not. Soon. Enough.

... But then again I'd say tomorrow wouldn't be soon enough. I want an official announcement that J.J. is directing.

P.S. Those "Transformers hacks" are already signed on (+ one Lost hack). And thank god.

Harrumph

Any chance of getting rid of those Transformers writing hacks this time? I don't want to have to sit through more swollen hands, numb tongue, and willy-wonka-Scotty during an otherwise good movie. Leave the stuff for the 6 year olds out this time can we?

I definitely say let the man take as much time as he wants. For me, the wait between sequels usually goes pretty quick, until about six months leading up to it. So it'll a little while before I start flipping my shit and I want this to be good.

Yay!

Its not THAT far away. The first one just came out and this is going to be a big movie, think about everything that it takes to make a movie.

At least I will get to see this before the world explodes.
