Yet Another AWESOME Sci-Fi movie. It is a must-see 😀

Star Trek was a science fiction film directed by J.J Abrams and was released in 2009.

It was the eleventh film to be based on the Star Trek idea and it features the main characters from the original TV programme but is played by a new, younger cast.

The story resolves around James Kirk, played by Chris Pine and Spock, played by Zachary Quinto, and their rocky relationship before the pair unites on the USS Enterprise to defeat Nero, an enemy from the future. Nero is played by Eric Bana.

Nero, coming from the future, creates an alternate reality which stops the usual conformity of past Star Trek programme and films, give the 2009 film huge amounts of dynamics and possibilities.

The production and development of the film began in early 2005.The actual filming was done under large amounts of secrecy and started in November 2007 and was completed in March 2008. The producers of the film, Paramount, decided to delay the release of the film as they felt that they could reach a wider audience if they waited. The film was finally released after huge anticipation in May 2009.

The Star Trek film gained amazing praise and has become the most profitable Star Trek film of all time. It can easily be said that Abrams managed to reboot the Star Trek idea and show it to many who otherwise would have passed it by.

The film was nominated for four Oscars and won the Academy Award for Best Make Up. This made J.J Abrams version the fist Star Trek film to win an Oscar.
