    I'm hoping it will be a success, the franchise is dead right now, this is sort of the last shot at new life.

    The trailers look great, recasting was a good idea.

    My son, along with his wife is taking his mom and me to the matinee and a lunch on Sunday, for Mother's Day and my birthday respectively. I hope it's better than all the past ones with the original cast. I note a strong physical/facial resemblance in Spock and Kirk. At any rate I plan on having a big bag of popcorn.

    I remember the very first Star Trek when it aired in 1966; it immediately became a weekly event for us. My bride of one year at the time and I would consume a big bowl of popcorn during every show. It was the best thing that had happened on TV up to that time for us.

    We hadn't had a TV for very long, and of course it was a B&W model. I had urged that we not have a TV, but instead enjoy good books and fine classical and instrumental music as our main form of entertainment, but she, being a farm girl liberated by attending IU, had had enough of patriarchy.

    If anyone can bring back the franchise, it's JJ Abrams.

    I think it will be a good movie, I love the idea of seeing how a young Kirk, Spock and the rest of the Enterprise Crew started out.

    All the reviews I've read about it have been good too!

    I want Star Trek to do the Klingon and Romulan wars. Kirk came up during those.

    I'm taking my son.

    I liked the original series but I'm not a Trekkie and never watched all the spin-offs nor most of the movies. However, this one looks interesting.

    I am with you there, I used to watch the orginal version after yogie bear every day after school. Never got into the spin offs. I will probably wait until it is out of DVD to watch it though.

    I have been following it since they started work on it, it may be just what the francise needs.

    Recasting is a very good idea, you can't keep doing 'old guys in space' and get people to watch.
