John Cho 'Star Trek' Poster Launched

August 14, 2008

As you also may know, Cho is taking over the role of Sulu, originally played by George Takei. The movie, a prequel that restarts the "Star Trek" franchise, will be released May 8, 2009, just like the poster says.

If you haven't seen The Spaces Issue of Hyphen, get it for a Q&A with Cho and a story (by me) delving into the racial stereotypes depicted in the utopian future of the "Star Trek" world.
Fellow Trekkies, I know you're out there. Don't tell me you're not waiting to see this movie.

I am so excited for the new Star Trek! It's not that I'm a Trekie or anything but I'm interested in seeing how the new cast takes on such iconic characters. And John looks not too shabby.
oh harry, you KNOW i'm all over this.i think hyphen should contact the distributor and get a passel of free tix for the sneak preview, whenever it comes around, and then get a huge posse of as ams to go and hoot whenever cho chows up onscreen.
Oh my!Set phasers to stunning!
