“Star Trek Into Darkness” Has a Somber New Trailer
By Brian Walton on December 17, 2012
If you didn’t happen to catch it this weekend at the movie theater, the new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness is now online. Admiral Pike giving Kirk a warning that his actions may one day put his crew in danger confirms that Kirk’s bravado has incurred the Wrath of Cumberbatch somehow. Between this, the Cumberbatch heavy teaser trailer, our behind the scenes preview, and the first 9 minutes of the film, we have a very good idea of the tone of the film, but surprisingly very little of the details. Into Darkness is starting to become a very good case study on how to promote a movie while still maintaining secrecy. Good on you, Bad Robot.
From the press release:
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
