As it stands, Ain’t It Cool News received early word on the upcoming trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, which is apparently playing on some loop over at the Paramount lot. The trailer, along with a new trailer for Watchmen, is expected to be in front of Quantum of Solace this weekend and one of the folks that saw it this weekend gave AICN some info based on what they saw.
Here you can read the whole description, but mainly about the Winona’s part, we can see a woman holding a baby Vulcan, saying: “”You will always be a part of two worlds.”
The trailer ins’t available yet, so we don’t have any images about Winona as Amanda. Unfortunally, we will need to wait.
Films featuring Winona Ryder, Nick Nolte, Anjelica Huston and Paul Giamatti will be among those competing for top honors at the Sundance Film Festival.
The lineup announced Tuesday for Sundance, the main U.S. showcase for independent film, also included documentaries on writer Hunter S. Thompson, musician Patti Smith and filmmakers Roman Polanski and Derek Jarman.
Taking place Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah, Sundance has chosen 16 films in its dramatic competition for American fictional films, including director Geoff Haley’s “The Last Word,” starring Ryder, Wes Bentley and Ray Romano in a romance about a reclusive writer who crafts suicide notes for other people.
Last week TrekMovie.com revealed that Spockâ€™s parents will be appearing in the new Star Trek movie. And now Variety is reporting that Winona Ryder has landed the part of Spockâ€™s human mother Amanda Grayson, a role originally played by the late Jane Wyatt. The Oscar-nominated veteran of dozens of films may be the best known member of the Star Trek cast so far. At 36, Ryder is only six years older than Zachary Quinto who plays Spock. It is possible that Ryder (and perhaps the actor playing Spockâ€™s father Sarek) will be seen in some sort of flashback to Spockâ€™s childhood or adolescence.

Actress to play Spock’s mother in Abrams film
“Star Trek” is beaming up Winona Ryder.
Paramount Pictures and director JJ Abrams have set Ryder to play the Vulcan mother of a young Spock (Zachary Quinto).
Scripted by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the film revolves around the Starfleet Academy days of the crew of the Starship Enterprise. Chris Pine has been set to play Capt. Kirk, Simon Pegg will play Scotty, Karl Urban is Dr. McCoy and Eric Bana will play the villain, Nero.
Ryder recently wrapped “The Informers,” a Gregor Jordan-directed adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel, and the Geoffrey Haley-directed “The Last Word.”
She is in pre-production on the Rebecca Miller-directed “Private Lives of Pippa Lee.”
