    Yessssssss. I saw this movie in regular theatres and IMAX (definitely meant for IMAX) at least 7 times. I think they did great casting and amazing story and CGI. If this is even close to as good, I’ll be going out of my way to see this.

    I like star trek, but the last one sucked, and I don’t expect any better from this one.

    I loved the last Star Trek. I thought JJ Abrams revitalized it completely. Looking forward to the next film.

    Hey Nobody important your name should read no brains or smarts of any importance , as if you thought the 1st Star Trek movie sucked u r in a very small and minimal minority as the movie was Awesome and the 2nd one will hopefully be just as good or better

    lolz @ Movie Fan. What are you? 12?

    The last Star Trek had great special effects along with actors that were true to the original cast, but the plot was incredibly weak. Alternate realities/ time travel sunk the Enterprise franchise, so what did JJ Abrams do with this franchise? Introduce time travel/ alternate realities. Lame!!!
