I don't know what to think about that....
I'm finding it does make it easier to imagine him voicing Smaug, though.
I don't know, I can't really see someone as good as Cumberbatch being just an action villain...his abilities cry out for an intellectual villain in my opinion
And now he's on a rampage because there are no more crimes to solve no Earth.
I do hope you are right. That would make for an excellent movie!
My take on the plot is that it IS Khan, but more the Space Seed Khan, except this time he succeeds in taking over the Enterprise, and uses it to try and exact revenge on the planet that outcast him and his "family." The crew then take the desperate act of driving the ship into the ocean to stop him. And then the blond med/sci officer we see screaming might be the crew member who ends up swooning over him.
But really, I am appalled at the lack on ingenuity evident in this film. ANOTHER revenge plot with ANOTHER attack on Earth and the fleet gets wiped out AGAIN. So far this series is not boldly going anywhere.
Edit: Japan's version has an added scene at the end. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BrHlQUXFzfw[/url]
That's why I really don't want it to be Khan (I don't have a problem with Gary Mitchell or Garth). This movie should have been released a year ago but the writers kept having problems coming up with ideas.
It was pretty obvious to me then that they had no idea what to do with Star Trek and if they do use Khan, it just means all they did was look at the most popular villain and rehashed him instead of trying something new and interesting. When Khan was revived in Space Seed, he didn't care about revenge. Conquest yes but I don't see him rampaging just because. It's not until he was marooned on Ceti Alpha V for 15 years that he became the obsessed with revenge.
Watching this trailer earlier, I did think it looks so much like the previous movie that it could almost be the same one. Earth being attacked again? Remember when Earth was only seen a handful of times because the stories were more about seeing what was out there and not what our planet looks like like in 250 years?
I didn't realize it at first but that's what I thought when I saw the trailer. They are going for a totally different direction. The gloves are off and they are going for the gritty and dirty. I must confess, I always thought ST was too sanitary.
What's the worst that could happen? :D They can't beat SW.
I know, and I also doubt he would have approved what is currently being done to his baby. There was always some life's lesson hidden somewhere in his stories and Star Trek is turning into Star Bucks, the Diet Coke of SciFi. Not knocking JJ, but he's trying to reinvigorate an aging franchise, and trying to appeal to a new audience. I guess that's the price to pay.
He also tried to stop TNG taking the more serious and political turn that it did after season two.
I still haven't seen that much of DS9, enough to enjoy most characters, but it's all bits and pieces. The concept of a station was a bit unsettling at first, but B5 did a great job of that.
I remember reading Roddenberry was also upset about Kirk shooting the brain-eel after it crawled out of Chekov's head in TWOK, saying Kirk would've studied it as a new life form.
