Apparently the trailer is complete, which was possible because work on the trailer began well before principal photography for the film commenced earlier this month. Indications are the trailer will show the construction of the Enterprise. Apparently there was even talk about the trailer showing with Paramount’s big Christmas movie for this year, Sweeney Todd. It is possible that Cloverfield was chosen for the Abrams connection or maybe even to help that film’s ticket sales with all the rabid Trekkies flocking to catch their first glimpse...
Cloverfield and the Star Trek trailer hit cineplex screens on January 18th, 2008.
The Trek Trailer will show up on the net a few days later, I'm sure. You can bet that I will post it here as soon as I can...
