    Hence the "Good choice." line from Kirk in the trailer.

    I also didn't care for the trailer or where it seems the movie is going. How many Enterprises are they going to destroy? And you can't explore space without a ship.

    I know it sounds weird to say this, but, less action please. I mean, think about it - the best original movies - 2 & 6, weren't action packed - they had it where it mattered. It was more about story, and characters.
    I know, and I actually don't mind that song in general, I just didn't like it for the trailer song. I think it somehow made all the action seem more mindless.

    To me it looks like they gave Trek the Fast and Furious treatment, and no i stopped watching after F5.

    Seems like Simon Pegg (Scotty, co-writer of ST Beyond) didn't much like the trailer either:
    It was very action-packed. I didn't… Yeah. It was surprising. I find it to be kind of the marketing people saying, “Everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun,” when there’s a lot more to it than that. I didn't love it because I know there’s a lot more to the film. There’s a lot more story and a lot more character stuff, and a lot more what I would call Star Trek stuff. But you know, they've got to bring a big audience in. They've got to bang the drum. To the Star Trek fans, I’d say be patient.
    And also, from director Justin Lin:
    There were other versions that were much more tradition and I can see where maybe the hardcore fans could probably see that as, 'oh.' The one thing I wanted to make sure is that it hopefully represents that we are trying to be bold and take risks. Whether we are successful or not, I don’t know. When I saw the teaser, I'm like, aw s**t. You really have to put the motorcycle in there? So I get it, I get it, I get it.

    So the movie studio heard the massive negative vibe and deployed pegg and co to try and roll back the tide of negativity around this film, bet a new trailer will come out much sooner than originally plan and the marketing person who thought this crap up was sacked.

    Not really surprising. In my experience, the only people more clueless than Marketing are Sales.

    I am floored, floored that after all the negative feedback about it in the first trailer, this new one has the motorbikes in it AGAIN.

    I heard there were complaints about the Beastie Boys song in the first trailer, but what were the complaints about the motorcycles?

    The whole FROM THE DIRECTOR OF FAST & FURIOUS followed by motorcycle stunts earned so many eyerolls it's a wonder we didn't spin the Earth off its axis.

    I will say I think this trailer is better than the first one, but I think that's down to decent content managing to edge out Marketing's latest terrible attempt at lowest-common-denominator attraction.

    Is it me or did that song not fit the trailer?

    When i read about Abrams Sulu being gay, i immediately thought maybe its a homage to George Tekai who is gay

    Has it been so far? Also.. New Spock is gay in real life.

    It's worth pointing out that George Takei is gay. He had to keep it secret for most of his life or he wouldn't have been able to act. It was illegal for him to marry a white person. It was illegal for him to marry a man.

    Star Trek was founded on the idea of a better future, where the prejudices of today no longer exist.

    Your disgust proves there is still a long way to go. Sulu being gay in this film is presented just like any other normal healthy relationship. Not 'in your face' like Spock/Uhura was in the first film. Or Kirk in bed with a woman in the first film, two in the second. But that's OK, right? Because they're straight....

    Or Kirk in every episode of TOS. Its quite obvious making Sulu gay is a nod to George Takai's homosexuality. Besides that I really don't care.

    My question is are they breaking canon? I seem to recall Sulu having interests in various ladies in TOS.

    Alternate timeline. Canon doesn't necessarily apply.. Look at Spock/Uhura.. Pike was alive in the original series..

    And Sulu still has a daughter, so.. It hasn't been changed that much.

    Valid theory.
    And I forgot all about Sulu's daughter.

    Damned Jar-Jarverse.
