Too much. I like Star Trek. . .but a 9 minute trailer/??//??? [In reply to] Can't Post

That means no other interesting trailers at all, and could get a bit monotonous for any audience members not in love with Star Trek, or younger audience members.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

Sounds pointless. [In reply to] Can't Post

People are there to see The Hobbit, not a preview of Star Trek.

Why ram a 9 minute preview down people's eyes? It would annoy quite a few people ... Including myself!

24fps [In reply to] Can't Post

Well I guess if they would project that preview at 48fps it would make some sense in order to get your eyes used used to the new speed. But since they say it's only 24fps I don't see a point in showing it at all. Crazy

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.

I'm kind of a Trekkie, i'd love to see the 9 minutes, alas no IMAX anywhere near me. Will have to wait for a trailer. Unsure

NINE minutes??? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't mind Star Trek, but I just bought my IMAX 3D tickets, and watching a different movie for nine minutes before watching the Hobbit, is not the experience I was hoping for. I might get a refund, and watch it in 2D first.

I like my previews to be short and sweet [In reply to] Can't Post

And I don't want to watch what is practically one-tenth of a different movie before the Hobbit starts.

Seems reasonable, but do continue with your derision if you like.

That's the ONLY reason I'd go to an IMAX 3D showing of The Hobbit.

And how insulting. Think how you'd feel on a Star Trek forum if they shunned you for wanting to see a 10 minute preview of The Hobbit in front of a Star Trek movie. Shame on you. Shame.

I appreciate that some people will be interested. But it's the last thing I'd want to watch, regardless of it being before The Hobbit.Tongue

As a Star Trek fan, [In reply to] Can't Post

nine minutes is too much. I liked my previews to be a taste, not a meal in itself.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

To be fair [In reply to] Can't Post

Imax films often don't have trailers in general, there weren't any when I saw Dark Knight Rises. I can't believe people are getting in a huff about this, first world problems.

*Edit - And I should add, it's not a 9 minute trailer as far as I know, but a 9 minute clip from the film, like the Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises did before.

And I'm not sure why you're worried about the 'younger audiences', did you see the Star Trek reboot? It was a pure action film, a good one at that, it's not at all like the old Next Generation films.

Overly dramatic? [In reply to] Can't Post

A refund, really? The 9 minute tag is likely in lieu of trailers, since most Imax films don't carry any (such as with Dark Knight Rises).

I think this is the most baffling thing I've read all day. What is with people's attention spans these days?

I predict we won't hear any info on the tint until after the 3rd Hobbit film has become available on blu. You heard it here first.Cool

But yes, I am eagerly anticipating the 2nd Star Trek. What has held it up so long?

Star Trek Delay Reasons [In reply to] Can't Post

This article gives you a good explanation. It was written at a time after the delay was announced, but before the May 17, 2013 US release date was set.
