Edgar Wright’s great friendship with the new “Scotty” Simon Pegg has meant the British director has become one of the few people on the planet not directly involved with the production of the new movie to have seen J.J. Abrams’ STAR TREK months before it’s release in May.

We already know that Kevin Smith has seen a rough cut of the movie and liked what he saw. And though Wright never mentions TREK in particular, it’s obvious that is the movie in question when speaking on his blog

I am a lucky bastard…

Yesterday I saw a film that does not get released until next summer.

I can’t say much more than that, except that it delivers all the goods sorely lacking from a certain trio of prequels.

Exciting stuff.

Trek Movie claim a trailer for STAR TREK could be attached to QUANTUM OF SOLACE (though likely not in the U.K. as it opens in just over 2 and half weeks here) in late November.

They also clock the running time at 2 hours with Abrams quoted as saying he hates the current trend of Summer tentpoles going over the 2 and half hour limit.
