In addition, it turns out that Lindelof's co-writer, Roberto Orci, is a conspiracy theorist/complete nutter. For example, he doesn't think Hurricane Sandy was a mere act of nature....

You know it's over when even Captain Kirk comes around to say farewell.

I read something interesting about the last Trek film's box office takings recently: most of these big Hollywood blockbusters make around 50% of their box office earnings domestically and the other 50% from the international market. Trek is the one big exception to this: I can't remember the exact figures but it was really disproportionately in favour of the USA. Internationally, it only performed strongly in the UK, and moderately well in Germany and Australia. In other countries, it is actually a fairly unknown franchise and there isn't that much brand recognition of it.

I wonder if this will be a Prometheus/John Carter-style flop that will put the franchise on hold for a while or if the marketing machine will rescue it. Poor old Benedict Cumberbatch's Hollywood career might end before it takes off if this thing turns out to be as bad as it sounds.....
I haven't seen a Star Trek movie since Generations but I think I will be dragged to this one because of the presence of said Cumberbatch. I have heard different things from Prometheus one person said it was brilliant and another less than brilliant (abbr). The scriptwriter should not be held responsible for Tr...

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

"This time, Pegg isn’t the only Brit in the world of Starfleet. Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as a villain. Pegg is full of praise for Cumberbatch’s baddy, whom he describes as “not just another disgruntled alien. It’s a really interesting… sort of… thing,” he squirms.
“Obviously I can’t talk about it.” Given internet rumours that Cumberbatch has been cast as Kirk and Spock nemesis Khan, will this be a very different “wrath of Khan” from the 1982 film of the same name? “It’s not Khan,” replies Pegg, annoyed. “That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not.”"

I really loved that man.
As an uber-straight bloke, I am no judge of male chests but I thought he gave a good performance too. He was clearly having a lot of fun in that role and walks all over Shatner (though that wouldn't be hard!) I haven't seen this Cumberbatch bloke act but I understand he is popular on your shores at the moment due to his role in the latest Sherlock Holmes revival.

Just looked - he was indeed a Mexican. So, yes, Hollywood was just as sloppy then as now. Interesting how the Trekkies trumpet the fact the show had the first interracial kiss and the Enterprise featured an international crew but then they did things like that.
At least Montalban was Mexican and as such a combination of Aztec and Spanish, making for an exotic appearance....and he had an amazing voice. Even in his 60s in The Wrath of Khan that was his actual chest.
