Tagline: “Your father was the captain of the Starship for twelve minutes. He saved 800 lives. Including yours. I dare you to do better.”
Translation: James Tiberius Kirk has some unresolved daddy issues.
The Verdict: As you physically and emotionally prepare yourself this weekend for the nearly three-hour slog that is the Watchmen experience, be sure to take your preshow bathroom break before the trailers begin. Why? Because no matter how rad you think that the new Star Trek trailer that you’re about to watch looks on your computer monitor, we guarantee it will look approximately 1,000 times more impressive when viewed on the big screen. As the tagline attests, this trailer gives some additional clues and insight into the rebellious Captain Kirk’s backstory, and goes a long way towards setting the table for Captain Kirk to have his very own Inigo Montoya moment with an evil Romulan played by Eric Bana. We are SO there.
