Paramount Pictures has released a teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Peter Weller. Star Trek Into Darkness will open in cinemas across the United States in May 2013.
On Dec. 14, approximately nine minutes of the film will play on 500 IMAX 3-D screens before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Captain's Log, stardate 23.9, rounded off to the... nearest decimal point. We've... traveled back in time to save an ancient species from... total annihilation. SO FAR... no... signs of aquatic life, but I'm going to find it. If I have to tear this universe another black hole, I'm going to find it. I've... GOT TO, MISTER.
With some of the images and what seem to be happening, the vilain for me seem to be more Gary Mitchell instead of Khan. Since the timeline as been change, Pike would have been responsible for leaving him on Delta Vega, thinking he was dead but actually was not and now as full control of all his powers. Just an idea, the young blonde girl in blue shirt reminded me of Dr. Elizabeth Dehner, anyway we shall see soon enough
HAHAHA ahhh *wipes tear* another sci-fi/action epic trailer with the booming Nolan sound effects.
*Something dramatic happening* DUUUURRRMMMM
*Something dramatic happening* DUUUUURRRRRRMMMMMMMMM
*dialogue and frightened woman*
*more dialogue more DURRMMING until things speed up and we come to close*
Seriously? I admit, it looks interesting and I liked the first one. But that's as far as it goes for me unfortunately and I was more excited before seeing it. I'm not saying the movie looks shite already, I'm sure it will be quite good... but my god, hollywood, give me an effing break. PUT SOME EFFORT INTO THE TRAILERS! THEY'RE ALL THE SAME!
Actually, if it is Gary Mitchell, they could do something really clever. It would make a funny line in the film, but be a wink to a continuity error for die hard fans.
"And now (mockingly) James Robert Kirk, you will meet your demise!"
"My middle name's Tiberius!"
"Funny, thought it was Robert. Hmm. No matter, now you die!"
Then it could be played off as that grave reading "James R. Kirk" because Mitchell got Kirk's name wrong.
I want to be excited for this, but so far it looks like 100 different post-apocalyptic/superhero movies that have come out the last ten years, primarily because so much of the action seems to be set on planet Earth and not up in space like I expect.
Well I wonder if the lava fields are on earth?. it could be earth bound but there could be an intergalactic chase. Have to say gazing on this teaser for the first time gave me the warm fuzzy's, haven't had that happen in years
I'm not a ST fan, but I loved the last one and have watched up to #5 from the originals... Regarding the japanese teaser... SPOILERS.... SPOILERS.... Kirk hand on a glass with another hand on the other side... Spock dies again?
The movie looks like pure adrenaline! Bring it on! This is a J.J. Abrams film there is always a story (sometimes too much of one) but this trailer looks like he might finally realize the balance between plot and action (explosions in this case). I love some of the Star Trek movies the ones with more action and less preachy bull crap! If I want to hear about the meaning of life I will watch a Terrence Malick film!
P@t_Mtl: "With some of the images and what seem to be happening, the vilain for me seem to be more Gary Mitchell instead of Khan."
That was the first thing that occurred to me watching the film (as well as that woman looking like Dehner).
kedavis: "Too many explosions for me. That's not Star Trek."
You mean like all of the various episodes (admittedly of the latter-day series) with massive space battles against the Borg, or the Dominion?
Trailers can often be deceiving. Look at Skyfall. All of the trailers and ads make the film look like 2.5 hours worth of action scenes, but there's a lot of the movie that isn't wall-to-wall action.
The question I have is: Is the "9-minute preview" playing in IMAX with The Hobbit *only* on the 14th? I rarely go to a new film on Day One (my wife and I tend to go to early matinees on the weekend), and I'd hate to miss the preview. Maybe I can convince the wife to take that Friday off...
Surprised to see so many ST noobies. I've been watching ST since the '78 TOS syndication run. (if you notice that the Copyright date on the TOS remasters at the end of the end credits says CBS 1978). I was thrilled when TNG started in '87, although interest waned by Season 3 as I was a Junior in HS, and watching Trek wasn't cool. No ComicCons back then either. I regained some interest during Season 7 knowing that it was the final season, and counting down to the series finale. Started to watch DS9, and stayed with it for the first season and then quit about half way thru second season, 'bout the time VOY started in '95...when I figured I can't keep up with TWO Trek series. It wasn't until the DVD releases in the early 2000s that I caught up on all 3 series.
A friend of mine suggested the ST2 villain could be Garth of Izar from "Whom Gods Destroy." It does fit, as he had a flask of explosive with enough blast capability to blow up a planet and he was a Starfleet captain.
In my very subjective opinion, this looks really bad and I really liked the first film. I just don't find these deep-voiced crazies who want to destroy (fill in the blank here) very interesting or even very believable. This guy sounds (and seems to act) just like Bane. I thought Abrams was better than that.
One of the reasons why ST in general and TNG more specifically was such a great show is because it sought to ask some very interesting questions about humanity and the kind of relationships it would develop with beings from other worlds. This looks like simply another "let's have some terrible bad guy with a deep voice blow up lots of shit" movie.
How many of these movies with the same plot do we need?
The Dark Knight Rises: Some badly treated kid becomes a terrorist and wants to destroy Gotham for no actual logical reason.
Skyfall: Some badly treated secret agent wants to destroy England for no actual logical reason.
Star Trek: Into Darkness: (apparently) Some badly treated former officer wants to destroy Earth for no apparent logical reason.
Hopefully, the movie is far more complex and better than the trailer. It's possible the marketing folk thought the trailer should have all this action so it would attract young men.
I don't understand the hate for this trailer by people saying there's too many explosions. It's a TRAILER. It's suppose to highlight many of the explosions in the film, because sadly that's what is going to get a lot of your average viewers to go and see it, unlike most of us Star Trek fans. The first one was great, and Abrams doesn't make bad films. Give the film a chance before you doubt it's ability to match the first.
I for one can't wait to see it. One more week before we get to see the prologue!
Lincoln6Echo, did you consider the fact that one of those hands in the "mimic" scene could be Benedict Cumberbatch's?. and that the scene could be at the beginning of the movie?. Thats what teaser's are for entirely open ended.
I think J.J knows the angst of the general Trek Crowd surrounding the "Khan" debate. How many Trek fans saw that Japanese Teaser and said, right that's it, it's Khan!?. we just don't know. The poignant moment as you know was the emotive climax of the Wrath of Khan. I am assuming people may assume such because of the "mimic" moments history. we saw what we want because of our historical relation to this. The uniforms of the formal occasion in the opening suggest a funeral precession. Gets one thinking?.
Seen some other pics the last few days where it seem costume seem to be similar to what Khan had. I guest only time will tell, either story would be fun for me but I have to admit that the Gary Mitchell story would be a lot more fun then a "reboot" of Khan. I would understand why they might not go for Mitchell as he is probably not well known outside of the truly hardcore fan base compared to Khan
I was never big into Star Trek (Star Wars is my thing), but I was blown away by the 2009 reboot. Stoked to see this in May, looks like it'll keep the momentum the first film set. I'm now going back and currently watching The Original Series, which I only watched once in a while as a kid. Good stuff.
