New STAR TREK film footage

A long time ago I posted a side-by-side comparison of the old vs. new cast for JJ Abrams’ STAR TREK movie and it quickly became the most-viewed page on my blog. So I learned my lesson: post more about the STAR TREK movie! 🙂

I see today on the BBC website that footage has been released, including the above still of the bridge crew–sans Spock, though.

Hmm…the fanboy in me can’t help but think that the red-blue-gold uniform sets weren’t in service until sometime after Captain Pike left command of the Enterprise…but this is a re-imagining, so I’ll let it go.

What impresses me most is how much Karl Urban looks like DeForest Kelley with that haircut. But I’m confused by Chekov with curly hair???

I’m still on the fence whether I think they can pull this off or not. I’ll go see it and I hope I enjoy it, but I reserve the right to be horrified if they butcher the thing.
