Trekkies

“Star Trek Into Darkness” director J.J Abrams, center, and cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, left, and Chris Pine wave during a press conference for the new film in Tokyo on Tuesday. Nine minutes of footage were shown at a special preview. Pine and Cumberbatch received a big welcome from fans when they arrived at Narita airport on Monday. Cumberbatch, who plays the villain in the new “Star Trek” film, is especially popular in Japan for his BBC TV series “Sherlock.” “Star Trek Into Darkness” opens worldwide next May.

    Next May? I'm keen to see it but why tour 6 months in advance?

    The Temporal Prime Directive of marketing prohibits publicity tours six months after the movie opens.

    Cumberbatch was a great Sherlock. I'd like to see another series.

    It opens worldwide in May, which I'm assuming means Japan should have it by the end of summer.

    Due for release in mid-September, by which time it will almost certainly have been spoiled for me by having inadvertently read/heard too much about the story. Which also just happened for me with Looper.

    We are just finishing 'Sherlock' series 2, its been brilliant - there is a lot of stuff which is lifted entirely from the books but updated very cleverly. Interesting that both Cumberbatch and Freeman had roles in the Hobbit. I also enjoyed the ST prequel with Chris Pine and will certainly watch this one.

    Those guys make Abrams look like a Ferengi.

    They're counting the recent movies which include the word Dark in the title.

    A little strange to do a preview here 10 months before it gets released.
