Trailer Tuesday: Star Trek

As William Shatner and what remains of his original Enterprise crew grow increasingly older, Paramount has had to consider what it could do to reboot the popular Star Trek franchise. The answer: Go back in time and show Kirk and company when they were young so the franchise could snare a new generation of both actors and hopefully fans. The result is J.J. Abrams' Star Trek (also know as Start Trek Zero or Star Trek XI ) that's set to look at how the crew of the Enterprise first got together. I have yet to be impressed by Abrams ( Cloverfield was a bust for me and Lost never really hooked me) but I will go see any film with Simon Pegg (of Shaun of the Dead fame). Pegg plays the young Scotty while Chris Pine takes on Kirk and and Heroes ' Zachary Quinto is Spock. Here's the second trailer courtesy of Paramount Pictures.
