Thanks Super Bowl for whetting our summer movie appetite

Further evidence that nerds are ruling the world these days -- our movies were all over the Super Bowl last night. You can check out the new "Star Trek" preview which features Kirk being his usual bad-boy self and also the first shots of Dr. McCoy that have me thinking he looks like Nathan Fillion.

We also got to see a sneak peak of the new "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" movie which, let's face it, looks pretty much like the old "Transformers" movie and that's fine by me. Actually things look even more 'splody, if that's even possible, and there seems to be a giant robot dog. Sweet!

And last but not least, we got a peak at the upcoming "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," which I'm including because it features Christopher Eccleston going all Scottish and action figure-y. Niiice.

*blinks at Eccles' bad mix of Scots and Manc*

Oh well, I guess it's better than his attempt at NYC orthodox Jew. Don't get me wrong, I heart Chris. But... meh.

Okay, but I'm not gonna pretend it doesn't still make me swoony. (I'm really not picky

I do kind of want to see the movie, entirely for Nine's sake.

Oh very dear, that is a baaad Scottish accent. Methinks he needs a wee chat with his replacement at Who Towers. Now there's a man who can do accents.
