Default Wow! Original beginning!

Oh how great it would have been...
Quote:
AK: The original opening was: the Paramount logo of the mountain comes on screen, then the mountain starts to tremble and explodes as it's ripped off into the sky. Suddenly the entire ground of Earth is destroyed - and you realize it's not Earth you're looking at, it's actually Romulus. From that, into the chaos of a planet being destroyed comes the Jellyfish being chased by Nero, and then we go through time. We never reveal in that original scene scriptwise that it was Spock in the Jellyfish. It was more about establishing Nero and why he's chasing the Jellyfish. Nero goes through the wormhole, it goes black, and you're at the birth of Spock.

Sounds neat visually, but I'm glad they switched to opening with the Kelvin. Makes me wonder though if it's something that couldn't have been glimpsed during the Mindmeld later in the film.

Yeah....I wouldn't want to give up the Kelvin opening, but that would have been a trailer that got the audience on its feet.
