ABOUT STAR TREK
The future begins in director J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster resurrection of Gene Roddenberry’s beloved Star Trek. When the Romulan Nero comes from the future to take revenge on the Federation, rivals Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) must work together to stop him from destroying everything they know. On a thrilling journey filled with spectacular action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits of the USS Enterprise voyage through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before. (J.J. Abrams, 2009, PG-13, 128 min.)
