Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Star Trek Into Darkness – In theatres May 17th, 2013

Synopsis: After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

Lens flare Ho! Yup, were getting ready for J.J. Abrams continuation of the Star Trek franchise he helped reboot in 2009. The complete story can probably be pasted together from all the trailers that have been released, with the exception of the ending… but we can assume Kirk and crew win. All the same actors are back from the first film to reprise their roles and are joined by the gorgeous Alice Eve as Dr. Carol Marcus and Sherlock… errr, I mean Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan Noonien Singh.

YouTube Video of the Week:

Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: The Challange

Props to Audi for this one, pitting Spock vs. Spock in this fun loving commercial for the brand new S7. Not only does it show off some of the features of the car, it is a decent little promo for Star Trek.

Bacon!  Yes, it’s as if I’ve been right all along.  This granny is on to something, and even garnered attention from Oscar Mayer, who gave her a ride in the famous wienermobile and some packages of free bacon.
Source story with a video is here.

As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom
