Detailed Star Trek Screening Report
The good people at ComingSoon have posted a another screening report from the Star Trek screening that goes into heavy detail describing what was seen. As you might have guessed, there are quite a few spoilers to be heard:
Scene 1 - Introducing Kirk
The scene opens with an establishing shot of Iowa, in the future when this story is set, pretty much a rural area of cornfields and farmland except for what looks like a large futuristic city ablaze in lights in the background and a car driving through this environment towards a smaller bright oasis that looks sort of like Vegas in the foreground. We cut inside where we follow a gorgeous black woman walking through the club, who sharper viewers will immediately recognize as Zoe Saldana, giving us our first glimpse of Uhura, who looks absolutely stunning. She straddles up to the bar and puts in a big drink order, and we hear someone make the smart-ass remark, "That's a lot of drinks for one woman." This is our introduction to Chris Pine's James T. Kirk, as he leans forward from behind an ugly alien who looks like Abe Vigoda. Kirk starts flirting with her and there's some witty banter between them about who will pay for the drinks, her name (is Uhura her first or last name?) and when he asks her what she's studying, she says "xenolinguistics" assuming that a "farmer" won't know what that is; he quickly fires back that it's the study of alien languages, breaking the ice with the impressed beauty...
