#015; ‘Star Trek’ is ballistic, it’s sexy and it’s back.
(Have I ever mentioned that I grew up watching this stuff? Goodness, as a kid I could tell you anything about it. So sad, I know! I was never someone who could choose between Shatner and Stewart, though, to this day I love them both. But Kirk has always been my favorite… He’s James T. Kirk, you know?)
Just had to post this, wonderful quotes about the relevance and hotness of the series (all 40-odd-years of it) from the cast of the reboot directed by JJ Abrams (of ‘Lost’ and ‘Alias’ fame) and premiering tonight nationwide… From the CNN opening day article about ‘Star Trek’:
The new members of Starfleet are in agreement with their respect of the juggernaut that is ‘Star Trek.’ They are just happy to become part of the legacy and hope that audiences will give it a chance. “Go and see this movie,” said [Karl] Urban, who plays McCoy. ” ‘Star Trek’ is ballistic, it’s sexy and it’s back.”.
Okay, so the real question is this: anyone else in DC this excited? Anyone else have midnight tickets? (I know, there’s a 7pm showing in Georgetown, but we didn’t know about that until after we got the tickets…).
