Star Trek: Into Darkness
The revised big-screen Star Trek (appealing young cast, eyepopping visual effects) lands a sequel, with the crew of the Enterprise back in action against a destructive foe with mysterious links to Starfleet. They say: Early reviews have this pegged as another rock ’emsock ’em sci-fi blast for the multiplex. Directed by JJ Abrams ( Star Trek), global opening weekend box-office results will be obscene. (Cover story, Page 11.) Wesay: The philosophy of Star Trek creator Gene Rodenberry is given lip service at best, a mere quibble though, in the face of such witty fun and widescreen spectacle! Running time 132 minutes. Screens at Robina, Pacific Fair, Australia Fair, Coolangatta.
