Featuring a sole figure looking out onto a city from inside a hole in side of some wreckage. What is the weckage, is it a building, is it the enterprise? Who is the figure, is it Kirk? Look closer at the hole, it's in the shape of the famous starfleet logo. Is that a futuristic London you can see in the distence? The Gherkin is there and the London Eye, are we in for a more grounded film this time, and based in London, the bad guy is British? Is that who's standing on the pile of rubble?

A release date of October 26 2012 has been set for the UK and will follow close in the rest of the world.
The filming of this episode has been delayed due to financial woes at owner MGM, but the delay does mean that it will get a release in the year of the first Bond movie, Dr. No's first appearance in cinemas, what better way to celebrate.
Put another was Lucasfilms has announced that the first Episode of Star Wars, as in The Phantom Menace will get its 3D theatrical debut on February 10th 2012. The press release doesn't specify location but I suspect the UK release on or around the same time.
Back in 1997, 20 years after the original Star Wars came out, Lucas pushed the cash cow back into cinemas with updated special effect that he claimed gave the vision closer to what he wanted to do in 1977. Now 12 years after the release of The Phantom Menace he has converted in to 3D, and the other 5 films are bound to follow.
As Star Wars fans now understand, we haven't seen Star Wars, any 6 of the films, in reality yet, the narrative of the film wont change again, but we will have to, about every 10 – 15 years or so, re-experience the series using greater technology.
Remember that also this year we have the Blu-ray versions of the films coming that will give us the most visually stunning version of the films to date which can go on the selves along with the original VHS release, the re-mastered video release, the ultimate box set, the special edition VHS release, the original DVD releases, the re-releases with the original theatrical versions (did I miss any) and so on and so on, actually I have already made space on my shelf for the 3D Blu-ray box set.
So for now, until we get holographic cinema, the 3D version of the 6 film saga are set to be released in cinemas starting February 10th 2012, see you there.
