Those scamps over at Entertainment Weekly have a great preview of next May's new Star Trek film, brought to you by Lost mastermind, J.J. Abrams.
There are some plot spoilers, but they are clearly marked, and I avoided them with ease.
To me, the most interesting part of the article, other than the description of how Zachary Quinto had to shave his eyebrows to play Spock, is the author's discussion how the box office for the film might be positively influenced by our country's current economic woes. It makes sense--Star Trek was always one of the most optimistic sci-fi series, focusing on how mankind's love for exploration and the human capacity for kindness towards all could take us as far as the stars. This is just the kind of positivity we need as our economy goes further down the drain. Plus, never underestimate the power of escapism in movies.
Here's a little peek at some of the pics associated with the article:
