As Paramount gets more confident the studio shows more and more of Star Trek. Putting the film to the test against 400 or so journalists, Paramount has shown four completed scenes from the film totaling twenty minutes in all.
Partial Star Trek Screening Report
The good people at Den of Geek have posted a spoiler-filled screening report from Star Trek that opens with something like this:
Abrams went on to explain how he'd followed the franchise through the original TV and film series, and through the later spin-offs, and intimated that his movie would be the first time that the 'promise of adventure' would actually be realised. He may be right: the viewing started with the new trailer, which will be in cinemas Friday, followed by four scenes from the movie itself, all complete with polished SFX and scoring.
And it all looks absolutely amazing.
Anyone prepared to withstand some major spoilers can check below for details of these scenes. For those leaving it here and saving themselves for the movie, let me say that the footage screened today is just sensationally great. Pine is good as Kirk, Urban is UNCANNY as McCoy, Quinto has got Spock's icy reservation and underlying anger nailed, the effects look more like GREAT model-work than ropey CGI and I'm just about as impatient for May 2009 as I can be...
Though it's only four scenes, the report does confirm everything we could have hoped from Abrams. Now let's just hope the other twenty or so scenes match up.
After the snippet above the report immediately jumps into heavy spoilers. If you are into that sort of thing, keep reading here.
