has a report saying that the first official screening of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot has taken place at Paramount Pictures and the reaction in the screening room was “far beyond expectations.” Principal photography ended four months ago and with only a few of the 1300+ shots are considered ‘finished’ it appears the idea to move the film from its previous release date of Christmas 2008 to May 2009 was a good move as a trailer for the film has been cut, but the effects on the trailer aren’t even ready yet for public display. Current rumors have the trailer expected to be shown around the release of Eagle Eye on September 26, 2008. Transformers: Rise of the Fallen is also rumored to have a teaser trailer at the same time, a move that could bolster Eagle Eye’s numbers considering the film is certainly a high concept feature that targets a similar audience.

ILM is working on the effects for Star Trek and TrekMovie reports Abrams is still trying to keep to his previous schedule for the Christmas release.
