Post !!! Breaking News !!!

Breaking news is HERE.....

Or below if you don't want to click on the link to the BBC website

Lost creator JJ Abrams has unveiled footage from his Star Trek prequel at a press event in London.

The clips featured US actor Chris Pine as the young Captain Kirk, Heroes star Zachary Quinto as Mr Spock and Simon Pegg as Enterprise engineer Scotty.
The audience also saw Leonard Nimoy reprise his role as the older Mr Spock in one of four excerpts from the film.
In his introduction, Abrams said he wanted the film, released in May 2009, to feel "legitimate and real".
Speaking at London's Vue West End cinema on Tuesday morning, the film-maker admitted he had "never really been a huge Star Trek fan".

"It was always someone else's show," he continued, citing the original TV series' limited resources and "cardboard planets".
On reading the script, however, he said he would have been "jealous" had another director taken on the project.
He also praised the contribution of British actor Pegg, who said he was "pant-wettingly excited" to be in attendance.
"I'm a fully paid-up geek," said the Shaun of the Dead star, who said he "couldn't put into words" the thrill he felt appearing in scenes alongside the Spock character.

I've read the Empire article (I never could resist spoilers!!!), and I've never been so ready to burst with excitement about a film, since I really can't remember!
