This is why most Trek canon discussions are silly and folks need to chill out over the new film.

That's IMO of course!
I felt Minority Report ended well. It definitely didn't feel like Steven was robbing me of the rest of the film and my price of admission as it felt in War of the Worlds' ending.

I's been a long time so I'll have to check it out again. I thought Spock too his glove off and put his hand on the glass seperating him and Kirk. When he died his hand slid down and there was a smear of red blood.

If someone can check it before i do, let me know.

I don't recall any blood smears on the glass... but Khan's face was very badly burned and bloody close to the end. Also Peter Preston, who was in horrific shape when Scotty brought him to the bridge and as he lay dying.

I think that as long as we don't get a "Monsters Ball" type scene we should be ok and not get the R rating.

Ratings change all teh time as was shown in teh posts towards the beginning. Funny how what was R not long ago can be classified now as PG-13 or even PG and yet games have the opposit issue with ratings going so bad as to issue teen ratings with teh warning "smoking".

I cannot fault Speilburg for changing his views on movies after having children. I had gone through the same since having children I cannot play the first Max Payne game because of teh overturned crib and blood. I just cannot get past that scene. Where I draw the line though is when using CG to alter past movies (ie remove guns and replace with radios not to be confused with updating the effects which does not change the context of teh scene.). I beleive the intergraty of the original release should be maintained.
AI was a gut wreching movie for me to watch with a depressing ending. The only movie more depressing that AI was What Dreams May Come. I realize he was just finishing Kubrics work but I consider it his worst movie but then again I liked 1941. I don't mind his facination with aliens but not in everything and Indy IV I just wanted to bash my head into a wall. For pete's sake it was a ripoff of SG-SG1 episode called Crystal Skull. I usually love his work including the not so popular Always but... ooops. Sorry I went off on a rant but atleast I didn't say Uncharted: Drake's Fortune would have been a better Indy movie than the last Indy movie... oh wait

Anyway, I don't think JJ will give us an R rated Star Trek. If so, I feel there are going to be a lot of upset fans.

What does "Christian standards" have to do with the rating of this film? Not everyone in the world is a "christian" and has to subscribe to that "standard". If there was full frontal nudity in Star Trek, so be it. It is the will of those making the movie. Please from now on refrain from bringing your religious beliefs into the forum.

It is a fair demand that the movie will be as prude as previous Trek, which implies no nudity. But I actually saw more women in Theiss-ware then in ENT.
Some people seem to be annoyed by men and women in their underwear going through decon or Blalock's naked backside, but have no problems with women in Theiss-ware and Kirk going after the ladies. Funny double standards.

Anyone have any idea on what the rating will be? Any high ups reading this forum that maybe could jump in here?

Trek movies are usually very careful to avoid the 'R' rating... like Star Trek 6... pink Klingon blood instead of red to avoid 'R' rating.

Just curious.
No way this movie's gonna be rated R. Eliminates way too much of their demographic. No one wants your brother to be able to take his kids to see this movie more than Paramount and Bad Robot. All three of his kids. And all of their friends. Again and again. Trust me. I honestly can't think of a single film that cost this much -- $150 million? -- that got an R rating. Certainly there aren't very many. And this movie won't be one of them. I think we can be pretty sure they won't be tossing around the F-word. There may be some mild sexual situations, but no nudity. And keep in mind that trailers are rated G, so anything they show... And as long as they stay away from the gore, they can probably have as much violence as they want.

Well, I would say the plot came up short and the film relied too heavily on the last installment and action setpieces, but anyway.....
