Well, so I’ve harshed on JJAbrams previous Star Trek effort a lot. Mostly, I hated the JJPrize redesign. I’m still not too happy with it, and I still think it looks like a scorched turkey mixed with a kids nurf assault rifle.
But I sort of liked the cast. Especially the guy who plays Kirk. I thought he did some interesting things with a brash young character. At least, I thought he got the feel pretty close to right, if not exactly the look.
Now the first ten minutes of the next Star Trek film are out as a prologue video easer commercial. We get to see a little more of what this is going to be like.
In this teaser we get a little of what Captain Pike was trying to explain to Kirk in the previous film, that Starfleet is a humanitarian peacekeeping force. In this new prologue, the JJPrize crew have hidden the JJPrize safely out of view, underwater in the lagoon on a planet whose main volcano is about to go all Yellowstone. But Spock seems to have gotten himself into a difficult fix…
If you’d like to see a bad bootleg of the prologue, here’s a link.
So, what do you guys think of the new Submarine JJPrize film? Do you have any hope that it will be better than the previous one, or are you hoping the whole New Hotness JJPrize crew get consumed by the volcanic lava pools of Malastare so that we don’t have to keep going through this every couple of years?
