Star Trek

The film explores the origins of James T. Kirk, Spock and the crew of the USS Enterprise from the original Star Trek series and how these iconic characters came together. According to rumors, the story involves an elder Spock (Nimoy) and a group of Romulans (led by Nero, played by Bana) being transplanted into the past where Spock must prevent the Romulans from irreparably damaging the timeline. To do so, he will have to enlist the assistance of his younger self (Quinto).

Star Trek will be released on May 8, 2009.
