JJ Abrams and Co. Boldly Went Further
Back in November, I was blown away by the first Star Trek trailer.
Just when I thought Abrams and company couldn't outdo themselves, they upped the ante with the recently released final theatrical trailer.
Finally, it appears the studio spent the money they needed to on the special effects budget. This film looks big, in an epic space opera sort of way. I know that story is the most important aspect of a film, but a decent f/x budget goes a long way in fully immersing the audience in the universe of that story.
Whereas the first trailer went for the surprise factor, this one goes for the awe factor. I'm really looking forward to this movie.
