Star Trek 12 Gets Release Date

I'm not sure if its Star Trek 12 or Star Trek 2, but the release date is June 29, 2012.

http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2010/01/11...-nothing-else/

UPDATE: Paramount has confirmed to MTV that the projected release date for the "Star Trek" sequel is indeed June 29, 2012.

This counts as news, but there's not much to it. We all know there's a "Star Trek" sequel coming. Hell, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, writers/producers of the May reboot, were talking about sequel possibilities as far back as the week after the first movie came out. Now we have a date to pin our hopes to: June 29, 2012.

Nothing else is known or announced, so don't ask. Maybe director J.J. Abrams will return to helm the sequel, maybe he won't. Maybe Khan will be the villain, maybe not. For all we know, the plan is to give us an epic "Star Trek Meets Star Wars" crossover. Could happen, right?

The news comes from a variety of sources, including Ain't It Cool News and Box Office Mojo, but there's no Paramount-issued press release that I can find. The information ran through some trustworthy sources, but we've yet to receive comment from the studio directly.

Regardless, there really hasn't ever been any doubt that we'd be seeing more "Star Trek." Abrams' take on the series made it friendly to an entirely new, much wider audience than its ever known before.

Were you anything less than certain that a "Star Trek" sequel was coming eventually? Where would you like the story to go from where it is now? Any specific hopes for the sequel?

Welp, there's another book I need to read.

Shatner's ST memories books were great.

p. 212:
As I have noted, in an ideal world Valeris should have been the stalwart Saavik, a character we had already come to love. And trust. This would have sharpened the pain of her betrayal, but absent Kirstie Alley, we decided it would be better to introduce a new character.
Wow, that's cool!

Had Kirstie Alley remained part of the Star Trek franchise, that turn would have rivaled any villan in recent Sci Fi history and probably rank among the top Sci Fi villains of all time.

Would have probably been more tragic than villainous. Saavik was half-Romulan and Alley's Saavik displayed emotion in WOK (primarily arrogance, but she cried at Spock's funeral). Had she been in love with Kirk's wimpy son, it would have been perfect motivation, and of course mirrored Kirk's own motivation for hating the Klingons. Saavik having an epic meltdown after getting busted could well have been the most poignant scene in Star Trek history. Oh well.

She was half-Romulan?

Wow, that clinches it: My Star Trek knowledge is weak at best.

You would have had to read the novel to pick that up - the scenes establishing her backstory were cut from the movie.

However, she acts more Romulan than Vulcan.

From IMDB:

When Sci Fi Channel aired this movie on television, Leonard Nimoy appeared on-screen during commercial breaks, explaining various memories and trivia about the film. One of the items was the character backstory of Lt. Saavik (Kirstie Alley), who was intended to have Romulan/Vulcan heritage, which would have made her more emotional than a pureblood Vulcan. Three hints at this remain in the final film: during the Kobayashi Maru simulation, she says to herself, "Damn!"; she gasps in shock when Scotty appears on the bridge with midshipman Peters' injured body; and she is emotionally moved by Kirk's eulogy.

It should be noted that Nimoy's greatest failure as a ST director was ruining Saavik. Nimoy had Robin Curtis play Saavik as a straight Vulcan. She's essentially a completely different character in III, and is basically the original cast's Wesley Crusher.

Ironically, Robin Curtis played a Vulcan in a TNG episode who had gone nuts and displayed real emotion. It was a far better portrayal than her sad, wooden Saavik.

You can type the word "shit," Spanky. Really, it's okay.

For example, I might say, your horseshit opinion really sucks ass.

Any questions?

heheh......JJ is eating this shit up......NOw its being revealed that Cumberbatch is playing a character named John Harrison. Harrison was a "red shirt" guy who showed up in several TOS episodes.........Alot of diehards still think its Khan somehow.....




http://badassdigest.com/2012/12/10/c....-john-harrson


Here's an interesting development in the "Who The Hell Is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing" mystery surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness: a new still from Paramount identifies his character as John Harrison.

There is, to the best of my knowledge, no canon John Harrison in the Star Trek universe. It's been stated that Cumberbatch is playing a canon character. So what the hell?

My two thoughts:

1) The caption is a lie. I mean, he may be calling himself 'John Harrison,' but that's not who he really is. That's a name he's using for most of the film before a big reveal as to who he actually is.

2) He's Harrison, a minor recurring crew member from the original series who bounced around from assigment to assignment, variously being in a red security shirt, a technician in sickbay and a gold shirted member of the bridge crew. He's not really a character, so much as he's a background actor who keeps popping up. He's technically canon, though, and his name is certainly mentioned in the show.

I've had a number of sources tell me that Cumberbatch is Khan. I could be getting played - JJ Abrams' mystery box system involves disinformation. The IMAX prologue that played for journalists yesterday hints at Khan - Giacchino's score quotes Khan's theme, and Spock drops the 'The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one' line - but I guess it could all be a big game. A weird game, but a big game nonetheless.

My gut instinct is that the answer is #1. John Harrison is the name Cumberbatch's character is using. He reveals his true identity later, probably when he reveals that he wanted to get captured by the heroes (a la Avengers, Skyfall, etc - it's an old plot device, but it's been getting a lot of use lately).

A sidenote: John Harrison Suratt was one of the conspirators who was involved in the plot to kill Abraham Lincoln. His mother, Mary Surratt, was hung for her role. Surratt himself escaped the country and returned later, after the statute of limitations expired. Could this fake name be taken in reference to this historical figure? Screenwriter Roberto Orci is a HUGE conspiracy nut, so it makes some sense.

Carol Marcus confirmed.

http://www.filmthrasher.com/2012/12/...firmed-to.html

Quote:
Multiple reports from inside the conference reveal that Alice Eve will be playing the role of Dr. Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness. Marcus is a character displayed in perhaps the most acclaimed Star Trek film to date Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and was previously portrayed by Bibi Besch.

Carol Marcus not only is an important character for the role of Khan but also for Captain Kirk as well. When they were younger, most likely the years displayed within Darkness, Marcus and Kirk are in love and eventually have a child together. However when they come to the realization that they are of two different worlds with Kirk exploring the galaxy and constantly on leave, they separate.

Marcus comes back into the picture when her Genesis Device is stolen by Khan. With the ability to turn uninhabitable planets ready to sustain life once more, it's unknown whether or not we could see this plot point once more on the big screen. With a new timeline being established in the predecessor and giving significant changes to exactly what we've seen before, it's uncertain exactly what new direction the history of these characters could take.

But here's an interesting question: does Marcus' involvement mean Cumberbatch could be Khan? Yes, we understand it's quite the stretch, especially with this being the early years of the Carol/Kirk relationship.The stronger speculated villains thus far include Sybock, Gary Mitchell and Khan, the identity of Cumberbatch has been kept quiet. But according to TrekMovie's comments sections, there is in fact an Enterprise crew member "Harrison" who appeared numerous times in the original series. Given that Benicio del Toro was once in contention to play Cumberbatch's role, and del Toro has a similar appearance to Harrison, could this former redshirt be the identity of our mystery antagonist?
