Star Trek – The Future Begins

Tags : 

We wouldn’t be geeks without a love of Star Trek.

In May 2009, Paramount Pictures will release the 11th Star Trek movie entitled, The Future Begins. “Space, the Final Frontier”, the trailer begins on top of futuristic music that indicates the mystery set before us. I am sure that all of you Star Trek fans are rubbing your hands together in anticipation! Those of you that aren’t “Trekkies” may wonder what all the fuss is about.

The Future Begins continues the Star Trek tradition of exciting science-fiction adventure. There is no doubt, this film pushes the envelope. The graphics look amazing and no doubt the film will have amazing special effects you have come to expect from Star Trek. More sleek than ever before and very exciting is the fact that the movie will also be released in IMAX. This can only help bring to life this fantastic adventure.

Directed by J. J. Abrams, it seems screenwriters and the director decided to return to Star Trek’s origins in many ways. In this film, there is a return to the Starship Enterprise. The film also features some of the original and most iconic Star Trek characters such as Captain Kirk, Dr Spock and Bones. For fans, this is an exciting prospect!

The Future Begins promises to be an outstanding film with all of the special effects and fantastic story lines you would expect from a Star Trek movie. The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Eric Bana, to mention a few. Some drama has surrounded the cast of the film. Chris Pine is said to have broken his contract on another film to accept his role in The Future Begins. He obviously saw the career-boosting potential of being in a Star Trek film. William Shatner also expressed disappointment at not being asked to appear in the film. But how could his character credibly be brought back to life?

The film was shot in Paramount studios in California as well as in Iceland. There was a lot of secrecy surrounding the filming of the movie and security was tight. They have worked hard to prevent any leaks of the storyline.

So, there you have it! There is just a little time to wait. Star Trek – The Future Begins is scheduled for release in both the US and the UK on May 8th, 2009 and in Australia and New Zealand on May 7th, 2009. For now, all you can do is pencil it in on your calendar and count the days!
