I had the great luck of getting a ticket to the newest incarnation in the Star Trek franchise. It was AWESOME! Needless to say, this horse won before even getting out of the gate and a sequel is probably in the works. But sequel or not, every movie needs a tagline to get the viewers' interest. Here are a few rejected taglines for the newest Star Trek feature.
"Star Trek- the guy who plays Sylar from Heroes is in it."
"Star Trek- Spock's in this one."
"Star Trek- yeah, I thought cars were gone in the twenty-third century, too, but hey! whatever works."
"Star Trek- EXPLOSIONS and lots of them!"
"Star Trek- JJ Abrams has got a lot of fingers in a lot of pies and is making a lot of money."
For some reason, these taglines weren't catchy enough.
