What the filmmakers can share with fans for the moment over the upcoming sci-fi movie.
Though still keeping close guards on the details of their film's plot, "Star Trek" filmmakers revealed that moviegoers will be presented with tons of gadgets when they embrace the eleventh movie installment of the sci-fi series. "We intentionally don't talk too much about the story," explained producer Bryan Burk, "but there's all the gadgets you could want."
Spelling out replicators from the list because they originated in "Next Generation", Burk went further uncovering the kinds of gadgets to be seen saying, "No replicators but there's warp speed and transporter beams and tricorders and communicators and everything you could want. All the gadgets." Director J.J. Abrams added, "It's one thing in 'Star Trek' to get all excited and freak out about communicators, but to them, it's like it's the new iPhone. These are just the tool they're using."
Commenting on the plot without giving any spoiler, writer Roberto Orci noted that anyone who doesn't know anything about "Star Trek" can still enjoy the movie because it takes the story right from the beginning. "It's designed very much to be seen if you don't know anything about it," he said, "including the story of how they all met. It's finally, truly Star Trek Zero in a way. You don't have to know anything."
From the producer of hit monster movie "Cloverfield" comes a new "Star Trek" movie chronicling the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members during their time at Starfleet Academy. It teams up young and old actors, like Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana and Leonard Nimoy. Paramount Pictures will distribute the flick on May 8, 2009.
