At a screening of The Wrath of Khan at the Alamo Drafthouse, Paramount executives switched in a final version of the upcoming Star Trek movie. I am super jealous. Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News was there:
JJ's STAR TREK has a singular purpose at its heart, to reboot the STAR TREK franchise in such a way that you never have to deal with continuity issues... where you can play with these characters without being beholden to everything that came before... but with the spirit and the love for that Universe clearly entrenched in every frame.
The actors are not mimicking the originals, necessarily - so much as becoming those characters. This could very well be the most accomplished REBOOT of any major series I've seen. It is confident and sharper than you can imagine.
