And We Now Have a “Star Trek Into Darkness” Trailer
by Brian Walton on December 6, 2012
The Star Trek Into Darkness trailer is finally here and, wouldn’t you know, it looks damn good. We’re still not any clearer on who Benedict Cumberbatch is, though. Is he a rogue Starfleet Captain left to die on a desolate world come to wreak his revenge? Based on the extra footage in the Japanese trailer (below) that features an homage to The Wrath of Khan, he could be that titular character, or he could be some version of Sybock, since he does utter a line about family before flashing to the shot of Spock and someone’s hand (I can’t tell if that other hand is Cumberbatch or Kirk). Ultimately though, it doesn’t matter if he’s a classic character rebooted or if he’s a totally new villain with character traits from those classic Trek archetypes; we’re going to see this movie because it looks bad ass.
