Watch trailer for new 'Star Trek' film now from director J.J. Abrams

CHICAGO – We're continuing to fill our video player with Summer 2009 movie previews and today's entry is the highly-anticipated "Star Trek" from director J.J. Abrams. The film stars John Cho, Ben Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Winona Ryder, Zoë Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, with Eric Bana and Leonard Nimoy. "Star Trek" opens on May 8th, 2009.


"The greatest adventure of all time begins with “Star Trek,” the incredible story of a young crew’s maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind.

The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before!"

    I can actually feel the $10 bucks being sucked from my wallet as I watch this trailer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Chris Pine..he's pretty damned nummy. After looking at the Star Trek IMDB, there are a few other cute Chris's too, like Chris Hemsworth and Christopher Doohan
