Spocklar!

I mentioned before that all this kind of geek review stuff is really just a countdown to the newest and probably greatest Star Trek movie called just "Star Trek." The fact that there is no distinguishing add-on to the title suggests that it's a completely remade franchise starting from the very beginning. Or, in fact, from BEFORE the beginning. And it looks amazing.

Spocklar!


The first bit of awesomeness that came from the rumor mill was the casting of Zachery Quinto, also known as Sylar from Heroes, in the roll of Mr. Spock. This was confirmed not long after and then the poster images came out where we first saw young Spock enclosed in a blue Federation emblem. About a week ago, the above image came out. You just can't help but see a knowledge-hungry, brain-eating villain come out of Spock and it makes you wonder... was Sylar really Spock's grand father on his mother's side? Spocklar is clearly angry at Kirk for some reason in this picture which would indicate a lack of discipline on his part. CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS! Now we know why his father was so disappointed in him.

Anyway... here are some more amazing Star Trek pics for you to look at:
