Thanks to Trailer Addict, the final trailer for J.J. Abram’s reboot of “Star Trek” is now available to view. HitFix’s own Dan Fienberg got a sneak peek of the trailer last weekend at Wondercon and as he noted, its clearly the most impressive preview yet.
Having seen extended scenes from the movie last November, there is still a lot of new footage here including Kirk (Chris Pine) taking the helm of the Enterprise and the film’s villain, Nero (Eric Bana), being allotted more screen time. And of course, the massive CG effects budget is on full, dazzling display.
This writer still has major concerns about Zachary Quinto as Spock, but the more Dr. McCoy (Karl Urban) and Pine we’re shown overshadows that one casting disappointment.
The trailer should also be available in front of most prints of this weekend’s expected blockbuster “Watchmen.”
