Things that are undeniably true: 1. The 2009 "Star Trek" reboot was ridiculous fun, a mixture of humor and action that appealed equally to the Trekkies and the guys like me who couldn't care less who Khan is. 2. This was more than likely due to the guy behind the camera, "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams, who saw the over-serious philosophical musings of the other "Star Trek" movies, said, "Screw that," and created a plot-heavy story that included roughly 25,000 CGI'd space explosions. 3. This teaser looks iffy to a lot of people.
Yes, some who critique movies based on one-minute clips, i.e. everyone, are not pleased. The Atlantic Wire points out that the music and the visuals point to it basically looking like a sequel to "Inception": "But the gripes far outweigh the hype in the reactions so far, and it seems that if we have one hope for 2013 at the movies, it's that blockbuster trailers will stop using music that sounds exactly like the soundtrack to Inception and voiceovers from villains who sound maybe a bit too menacing." And a quick Twitter search shows similar thoughts.
Eh, whatever. Before "The Hobbit," some theaters will be showing nine more minutes of footage from the movie. We'll get a better sense of what it's like then.
