According to TrekToday.com, the head honchos over at Paramount were recently shown the first cut of Star Trek XI, and were reportedly extremely impressed with the quality of the film.
This first cut was completed four months after principal photography wrapped on Star Trek XI.
The screening, held last week, was a big success. Various comments coming from different sources who were privileged to watch the initial effort ranged from “a hit,” and “very impressive,” to “far beyond expectations.” Expectations for Star Trek XI have been high and were a factor in the movie being moved from its original December 2008 release date to May 2009.
Word also out that editing and finalising is also being done for the released of the theatrical trailer, due out sometime this year.
