The latest official news is "no news" re: the Comic-Con article and comments from JJ. It was interesting to hear "officially" that there aren't enough finished special effects shots to show at CC (or anywhere else) yet, but not surprising given it's only July.

And since I've heard no mention of JJ attending the con in Vegas (though I think Bob Orci is on the list??), I'm not sure much of anything new would be debuted there either -- perhaps some new images, maybe, but probably not film clips now. For the same reason, it would appear no new teaser trailer is on the horizon either... if they have nothing ready to show, then they have... nothing ready to show.

I was discussing this with a fellow ('rabid') TREK fan yesterday, and it's looking more and more like the marketing for the film is leaning toward the 'standard' window of this autumn for the May release. I think there's a good bet we'll get new web-released info before then, but not a ton of it until this fall.

The release date change by Paramount is such a unique situation in many respects, it's awfully hard to hold it up to a 'standard calendar' of promotion, and even harder to outguess what will happen when. Right now our best clues are what we know already: there's an official site waiting to get filled in and a viral site which will unfurl itself whenever they push the start button again.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if they'd been re-examining the entire campaign since they changed the date, so there might be extra goodies which wouldn't have otherwise been in the December-release campaign because they have more time to work them up. We wouldn't know the difference, though.

Merch isn't my area at all, so it's not surprising I haven't heard a peep. Maybe others are better in the loop on that....?? Anyone? Bueller...?
