Trek: Modern Trailers

Recommended Posts

Indeed! The TMP one actually kind of oversells the movie (except for the Enterprise re-introduction, of course)! :P

I saw the TMP one on YouTube the other day, and while it's well put together, it just...well, the words 'false advertisement' come to mind.  I love TMP; I think it's highly underrated and a beautiful piece of cinema, but rather than pitch it as an action movie (like the modern trailer does) or Trek's answer to Star Wars (as the PR for the movie did back in 1979), it really has much more in common with 2001: A Space Odyssey than Star Wars. 

It's a sad thing to be of an age where you realize that many of the movies you loved as a kid could not be made today simply because they're not commercial enough...
