Thanks to our friends at AICN we have some HD TV spots for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. They were created by Daren R. Dochterman, who is a VFX artist, production illustrator, concept artist, and storyboard artist. He has worked on such films as The Chronicles of Riddick, Tron: Legacy, Se7en, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Iron Man 2.
The result? It's still STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, but it more or less completed a process director Wise didn't have time to see through when the film was rushed to release back in December '79. The result is a breezier, richer, and in many regards more complete narrative experience - which was, by the way, realized under guidance from Wise himself. 22 years after the fact, Wise (along with Dochterman, producer David C. Fein, restoration supervisor Mike Matessino, and a posse of damn talented crafts people) finally gave us a movie much closer to the picture he had in mind so long ago. The picture, and audiences, and posterity, are better for it.
These TV spots look and sound fabulous. I think that the Star Trek theme song is one of the best. Which theme song is your favorite - Star Trek's or Star Wars'?
