New Star Trek trailer might make it the biggest film of ’09


The new trailer for J.J. Abrams Star Trek has debuted online, and it’s looking more and more like the biggest and baddest film of this year’s blockbuster season.

This trailer focuses on James T. Kirk’s origin, and his motivation to join the Starfleet Academy. I think Chris Pine does a great job of pulling off the lovably arrogant William Shatner swagger; I only hope he can also bring the same level of laughs that Shatner did.

There is some speculation in the office over which film will be the highest grossing of 2009. Some say Terminator, some say Transformers. But I don’t know – I may be going out on a limb here, but perhaps Star Trek will take the crown. The original films were box office monsters (with the exception of the last couple) all circling the magic $100 million mark, and that doesn’t even include home video receipts.

With a trailer like this, a sexy and talented cast, Eric Bana as a crazy evil villain and the capable hands of director J.J Abrams, I wouldn’t be surprised if Star Trek pulled upwards of $700 million worldwide.

And yes, maybe that sex scene you can see in the trailer will put some bums on seats.

Star Trek opens May 7th Australia-wide.
