Various Star Trek Tidbits

JJ Abrams tells MTV News that his upcoming reinvention of “Star Trek” will have a two-hour runtime. “I’m sick of these two hours and forty-five minute movies. Seriously, it’s like I don’t have enough time to stay two hours and forty-five minutes. I’m exhausted just saying that twice. I can’t stand it” he says.

The new teaser trailer for the film is scheduled to be released sometime in November, likely loosely attached to “Quantum of Solace”. Also, despite the talk that no footage was ready, a rough cut of the trailer was shown privately to Simon Pegg by Abrams at Comic-Con in July.

Pommie sex symbol and comedy film director Edgar Wright (“Hot Fuzz,” “Shaun of the Dead”) left a message on his blog that would seem to indicate that he’s seen the film already – “Yesterday I saw a film that does not get released until next summer. I can?Äôt say much more than that, except that it delivers all the goods sorely lacking from a certain trio of prequels. Exciting stuff.”
