This topic is making me nervous. I hope they do a good job with the movie. I remember when Michael Keaton's Batman and the current Christian Bale Batman movies were announced there was very mixed reaction. Why redo the series? How many people can play Batman? Well, clearly that movie series were good and well received. I hope the new Star Trek is like that.
I spoke with a 15 year old boy who said he never watched Star Trek on TV and judges movies by the number of car chases in them. It's going to be tricky balancing the high action required to get that crowd with the interpersonal relationships older fans want.
