This pleases me. Yes, I'm a fan. That said, it's a pretty sweet trailer, whatever your views on the franchise are. It looks like an unabashedly loud, snazzy summer flick. That'll always turn off some, granted. But if you have any stock whatsoever in the humble popcorn movie, this demands your nerdgasm. For my money, it succeeds. Much of this footage has been around for a while and it certainly isn't the first time I've seen it. Unlike most of the trailers for this summer's forthcoming tent-poles, I could watch this over and over again. After years of patience-sapping banality, someone grabbed Star Trek by the nuts and dragged it weeping into relevance, once more. Kudos, J.J. Kudos.
