star trek: in darkness speculation

Because reasons: io9 breakdown of trailer

Okay, Ami hit me with this in chat and if this happens? I will send JJ fruit baskets forever, okay. FOREVER.



amireal: I'm hoping it's a misdirect AND an iconic moment? Becasue I mean, I expected to be annoyed by reboot but then they made it THE SAME UNIVERSE ANYWAY
amireal: and I was happy
amireal: Spock tries to use genesis device on new planet and dies - hence Uhuru looking distraught and Kirk talking at funeral (Kirk is still junior - he'd only talk at the funeral of a crew member, not another officer). After a while Kirk/crew realise that Spock is still alive on planet and go renegade to get him (hence odd scarfs etc on Kirk and Uhuru). When they get to planet (red 'thread's are remnants of genesis) they discover not one but two Spocks - one from Spock's Vulcan DNA, one from human DNA. Let's call them Zach and Ben. Zach is now a more traditional Spock - the emotion from the original movie is now gone - and Ben is all the evil emotion and primal urges. Crew rescue Zach but for some reason Ben is left behind to fester. He meets Klingon, fights leader, wins and takes over Klingon ship before heading to Earth to get his revenge. From then on it's a standard who'll win, oh the good guys kind of plot.
Seperis: Now that is...interesting.
amireal: right?
Seperis: Oh dude.
amireal: or it could be sybok
Seperis: OH DUDE
amireal: *KOFF*
amireal: dude?
Seperis: DUDE
Seperis: SYBOK SURVIVED?
amireal: I dunno
amireal: ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
amireal: he was older, already an outcast
amireal: I believe he left the planet
Seperis: I like th dou ble spock theory
amireal: maybe he went to get his ears tweaked b/c he hated vulcan so much@
Seperis: That would be intersting.
amireal: *nodnod*
amireal: omg
amireal: wiatwait
amireal: if its sybok
Seperis: Two. Spocks.
Seperis: No, ti's personal
amireal: no wait, nevermind rthat didn't work
amireal: but yes
Seperis: Sybok has no personal ties to Kirk
amireal: that
amireal: OKAY NO
amireal: wait
amireal: If it's two spocks
Seperis: The double spock theory is--workable with teh personal.
amireal: and the second, more emo
amireal: is getting revengve for say
amireal: AMANDA'S DEATH
Seperis: Being left behidn by his BFF?
amireal: THIS IS WHY WE DO NOT SEE CHECKOV
Seperis: Holy. Shit.
amireal: Because I think it is v strange we have not seen him
amireal: ghtggf
amireal: RIGHT
Seperis: Nine minute trailer will tell us
Seperis: OH MY GOD I AM GOING TO GO INTO HYSERICS
amireal: I know I know, patience
amireal: BUT STILL
amireal: *HOLDS YOUR HAND*
amireal: I may need to medicate myself for the 9 minute trailer
amireal: seriously I will bet you your midnight star trek tickets that Checkov not being in the trailer is a Thing
Seperis: REvenge for Amanda.
amireal: they even have a random scotty scene
Seperis: And Revenge for leaving left behind.
Seperis: HOly Fucking shit.
amireal: *NODNOD*
Seperis: THIS WILL BE EPIC
amireal: I AM A GENIUS NO?
Seperis: OH MY GOD THE SLASH
Seperis: THE SLASH
Seperis: You'd do anything for family --- AMANDA
amireal: frankly I'd be shocked if sybok wasn't mentioned b/c I am v. sure he's already off planet
amireal: even by the time Spock is BORN
amireal: which means his timeline is mostly undisturbed
amireal: OMG
amireal: SYBOK TEAMS UP WITH SOMEONE
amireal: okay no, now I'm getting wacky
amireal: SYBOCK IS PETER WELLER THE OLDER ADVISOR
amireal: ahem
amireal: ...I think I need some tranqs
Seperis: Can I psot your theory?
Seperis: In my LJ?
amireal: sure!
amireal: I may even participate in the convo

I kinda wanna hug you both for this :)

What's you take...

Benedict Cumberbatch - Khan or Gary Mitchell
Alice Eve - Carol Marcus, Elizabeth Denher or Nurse Chapel
Peter Weller - Joachim or ?

My Peter Weller guess was Sybok or Kahn, as a mentor to BC's character.

This the first time I've heard anything about a nine min trailer. Is that actually a thing? When is that being released?

December 17th. Yes, marked in my mind forever. MUST SEE.

Is it only in IMAX 3D theaters? Before which movie!.?

The Hobbit. :-) I have my ticket already!

Yes but is it only in IMAX?

Think so, yes, sorry. Although I think there's a regular trailer with the other versions.

TT_TT so not fair. I'll have to wait for some kind soul to post it i guess. cuz I'm not payin $18 for a movie that I can see on cheap Tuesday for $5 in reg theaters. I just can't afford it :(

I think the 9 minute preview is airing only with the *digital* IMAX 3D Hobbit showings.

OMG IT'S LIKE A QUEST TO JUST F-ING FIND THE RIGHT SHOWING DX

Colonel Mustard in the Conservatory with the Candlestick!

AAAAAAAAAAHHHH! *incoherent shrieking*

I HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT! (Except I love Chekov, he's adorable. Plus, he was so broken up over Amanda that I would really hate to see him suffer for that. Even if I have faith that Kirk won't let that happen.)

I'm really, really hoping that you're right on the money about this. :)

I've only recently watched Star Trek 2009 and I'm now eagerly awaiting for the new movie to come out.
