The first batch of images from J.J Abrams‘ Star Trek film have landed, causing fanboys around the world to literally explode with joy.
For those of you keeping count, Star Trek will be the 11th installment in the legendary cinematic series. There’s been a lot of good buzz coming from the set, so hopefully it can beat the Star Trek curse. For the unfamiliar, it’s the belief that the even numbered films are good and the odd numbered films are awful. If you check out the back catalogue, it’s a pretty accurate theory.
However, with a killer cast, an excellent director and the promise of the Vulcan death grip (see below), I’ve got a lot of faith in this flick. Take a look at the rest of the pics, and let us know what you think.
Star Trek opens May 7th, 2009. It stars Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Dr. Spock, Karl Urban as McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, John Cho as Sulu and Eric Bana as the villain Nero (pictured above).
P.S. Look out for the trailer in front of Quantum of Solace next month. Exciting stuff peoples!
